Welcome to Blackwood Bay, where magic and murder have come out to play...
Life for fledgling new witch Dru Rathmore Davis has been a whirlwind since moving to the charming seaside town of Blackwood Bay over a month ago . Seeing spirits, talking to animals, living with three cranky roommates, and totally not crushing on her new Guardian …
But when Dru wakes one morning to find the body of a circus clown slouched dead against her doorstep and her bookshop broken into overnight, one of her worst fears may come to pass.
She may be haunted by a clown...
Together, Dru and her Guardian—incredibly handsome police sergeant Wolf Harper who’s absolutely just a friend —take their investigation to the most marvelous show on earth: the traveling Braun Bros Circus.

But when your suspects are a tight-knight troupe of acrobats, fortune tellers, magicians , and clowns, everyone has something to hide—and secrets they’d do anything to protect…

Welcome to Blackwood Bay, where magic and murder have come out to play...
Okay, if that had been on the sign when I drove into town, I probably would’ve thrown it in reverse and kept the pedal to the floor until I made it safely back to Las Vegas. Probably.
Instead, I'd been lured in by the cute little beach town, a handful of instant friends, and a hunky local.
My name is Dru Rathmore Davis, and In my defense, my life had pretty much just fallen apart. So, after learning that I'd inherited a bookstore from a grandmother that I never even knew existed, I was desperate to make this my fresh start. I daydreamed of owning a quaint little bookstore and spending my weekends reading on the beach. Sounds great, right? And what could possibly go wrong?
Turns out, everything. The bodies start piling up along with my arrival in town, someone may have murdered Granny… and that’s only the beginning. As a former private investigator, I really can't help but find myself drawn (or pushed) into doing a little investigating of my own. It also helps that the Police Sergeant is super hot… cliché, I know, but what's a girl to do?
Things are much more complicated than they first appear though, and being new in town certainly has its disadvantages. No one is who they seem to be. Not even me.
The only ones I can trust are the dead. Well, and my cat. But none of them are talking. Or are they?

A QUIRKY HISTORICAL COZY WITH A STRONG FEMALE PROTAGONIST
Jane investigates a clock tower that mysteriously strikes thirteen, a fatal car crash, and a gang of masked riders who appear bent on destroying the local farmers' melon crop.
Note: By Celia Kinsey writing as Alice Simpson.
About the Jane Carter Historical Cozy Mystery Series:
This charming historical cozy mystery series is set in the fictional American city of Greenville during the 1920s and features Jane Carter, a young widow who returns home to live with her father after the tragic death of her journalist husband.
Jane’s father owns a local newspaper and wants Jane to take it over someday, but Jane is adamant that she has no desire to be a reporter. Instead, she turns her talent for writing to concocting melodramatic romances for fly-by-night rags who almost never pay on time.
Jane claims that she's holding out for a millionaire before she marries again, but the only man who makes her heart beat faster is Jack, a reporter on her father's staff. Not only has Jane vowed she will never be a newspaperman herself, she's doubly insistent on never again marrying one.
While trying to turn out enough column inches of overwrought romantic bilge to keep her old car on the road, and herself in shoes, Jane runs into the most extraordinary circumstances. In Jane's madcap world, it's a constant round of kidnappings, curses, stolen jewels, counterfeit paintings, and hidden stashes of gold. There's plenty of crime to go around, but nary a murder.
Accompanying Jane on her adventures is her best friend, Florence. Jane and Flo may get into one perilous situation after another, but they are never damsels in distress, because, as Jane puts it, "A real lady always carries her own pocket knife."
All this getting into harm's way alarms her father's housekeeper, Mrs. Timms. Mrs. Timms believes it's her mission in life to turn motherless Jane into a proper lady, but seeing as Jane has just turned twenty-four, Mrs. Timms considerable efforts appear to have been in vain. However, the housekeeper won't give up trying, just as Jane won't give up on seeing Mrs. Timms and her father center-aisling it to the altar and saying, "I do."
This series is adapted from Mildrid Wirt’s Penny Parker mysteries, which have fallen out of copyright. The author has made extensive alterations and additions to both the characters and plots of the original novels, but readers familiar with Ms. Wirt’s stories will notice many similarities.
These are murderless mysteries. Despite a constant crime wave, there seem to be no murders in the city of Greenville. There may be plenty of peril in the form of kidnappings, heists, and the occasional assault, but nobody ever dies, and justice is always served.

Along with their significant others and the gardener, Casey and her oversize partner, Bobby, move in with a rape victim who’s receiving threatening phone calls. The victim knows exactly who attacked her, was tried for it, got away with it and who, she’s sure, is still getting away with it.
BAD MOON ON THE RISE, Vol. 6
Casey follows the trail of a missing basketball star to a prison town in the North Carolina mountains. In order to help out the very hot local sheriff investigate suspicious goings-on in the prison, Casey agrees to be locked up for a week inside a prison once again.

Warshawski, Laura Lippman’s Tess Monaghan, Marcia Muller’s Sharon McCone, and Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum, as well as their tough and witty male antecedents.

How can he even be taken seriously? But he is. His rallies are the best attended in the campaign, and when he's on the stage with the other candidates, he puts them in the shade. He fizzes, he bubbles, he burbles and he bullies. This is England - how can anyone think that the man in the suit would make a good new Mayor? Well, some people are thinking that he could make it, he could go all the way. So will they try to stop him? Will they blow his campaign out of the water? Or, so it seems, just blow the man away.

Being brutally beaten and buried alive, Lydia Sinclair refused to die. A lightning bolt striking a tree nearby jolts her back from the dead. In the darkness, she doesn’t know where she is but struggles to find a way out of the backwoods swamp.
Once she is rescued, Lydia has no memory of who or why anyone wanted her dead. In the hospital, another attempt is made on her life, but no one believes her. Rather than go home, Lydia voluntarily admits herself into St. Lucious Psychiatric Hospital to be safe and allow herself to uncover what it is she doesn’t want to remember. Lydia’s desperation is obvious as her life depends on her memory of her past events no matter how unpleasant they may be.
Through her therapy sessions, Lydia soon uncovers the mystery of her dysfunctional family in turmoil, where greed replaces the love they once shared. And where murder is the only way out of past misdeeds that were done.
This contemporary mystery delves into the family dynamics that causes people to do the unthinkable.
As Lydia races to uncover her memory, the truth becomes a terrifying nightmare. A tortuous, engrossed thriller, Into the Darkness will keep readers enthralled through the final, shocking twist of fate.

Sonny Warren, a rookie Phoenix detective who has a PhD, receives an email from a suspected serial killer who challenges Dr. Detective. “I made my third kill today. I have seven more planned. Can You Stop Me?” At first Sonny’s lieutenant does not believe the email. Then through a series of twists and turns, Sonny is drawn further into the case, becomes a temporary helper in the FBI investigation, and then is abruptly kicked off the FBI team for disagreeing with the lead Special Agent. Feeling personally challenged since the emails have been to him and not the Phoenix PD, Sonny asks his lieutenant if he can continue working on the serial killer case. Sonny is cussed out and told, not politely, to stay off the case. Sonny, however, cannot. He is the latest in a long line of male family members who have been policemen. He feels driven to continue to figure out the killer’s MO which seems to be a series of codes that the FBI was unable to break. The first code element is that the killer is murdering someone each month. With that foremost in his mind, Sonny worries each month when he is unable to prevent someone from being killed.
As the months continue to pass, he struggles to understand the codes being used and predict who will be next. One of the FBI agents that he worked with calls Sonny with bits of information that might help. One grabs his attention but leads nowhere. Consciously, despite persistence, he is unable to come up with anything new. Then one day his subconscious hears a new possibility and ties it in with all of the data Sonny has accumulated. By the end of that day, he realizes what the codes are and is able to predict who the next victim will be.
But, he cannot go to his lieutenant or the FBI Special Agent. They both have forced him to stay off the case. At risk of being kicked off the Phoenix Police Department because of insubordination, Sonny without explanation puts in for immediate vacation. Again, his lieutenant is highly upset because the department is so busy.
The vacation request is approved but not for the time Sonny requested. Sonny will have only one day to convince the next victim and local police that he knows what he is doing.

Over-educated, under-employed and with a vague feeling that there has to be more to life, retired accountant Max Bennet’s chance encounter with a beautiful Italian socialite leads to secret trips to Portugal and Morocco — and an unexpected contract to deliver a prestigious lecture on medieval art.
But is it all too good to be true? What are the Materazzi family up to? And how is he going to keep his dodgy dealings from his razor-sharp wife? Our man is soon out of his depth.
A parodic homage to — inter alia — John le Carré, David Lodge, Capt. W.E. Johns and cult rock bands of the 70s, this picaresque black comedy is awash with absurd characters, preposterous co-incidences and ironic cultural references. The witty word-play will delight the hoity-toity metropolitan bookworm.
Colin Wight was born in Glasgow, brought up in [the] Wirral and lives in London with his razor-sharp wife. This is his first novel.

An unseemly lesson…in murder.
The year is 1896, and college professor Concordia Wells has her hands full: teaching classes, acting as live-in chaperone to a cottage of lively female students, and directing the student play, Macbeth.
But mystery and murder are not confined to the stage, especially when the death of Concordia’s sister, Mary, appears to be foul play. To make matters worse, the women’s college is plagued by malicious pranks, arson, money troubles, and the apparent suicide of a college official. With her beloved school facing certain ruin, Concordia knows that she must act. As she struggles to seek justice for her sister and discover who is behind the college incidents, there are some closest to Concordia who do not appreciate the unseemly inquiries and bold actions of the young lady professor. Can she discover who is responsible…before she becomes the next target?
Absorbing in its memorable characters, non-stop plot twists, and depiction of life in a late-nineteenth century women’s college, Dangerous and Unseemly is a suspenseful and engaging contribution to the cozy historical mystery genre. Fans of Harriet Vane and Maisie Dobbs will find in Concordia Wells a new heroine to fall in love with.

In He's Alive by Linda M. Williams, after Jordyn Gilbert witnessed her twin brother's death in a school bus collision, she discovered a hidden gift as a medium. When the spirit of her twin visited her as she recovered from the accident, she promised him she would use her gift to help others. From that moment on she transformed into JJ. Ten years later, while visiting her brother's grave, she was given the opportunity to keep that promise when she hears a strange voice stating: "He’s alive." The voices continue and the spirit entity is so strong it pushes JJ over the edge until she has no choice but to solve this mystery. The only person she can turn to for help is her old school friend Luke, and together they uncover the identity of the spirit and the shocking truth behind the message. JJ faces hostility and threats as she investigates a crime that has gone unsolved for years. Will she discover the spirit missing son is alive? Someone’s life depends on it.
This is a fantastic concept for a story line and the author has executed the plot with sensitivity and knowledge of her subject. There are many twists and turns throughout the plot as JJ tries to uncover the identity of the son. I was gripped by the fast moving, exciting investigation by JJ and Luke. The conflict and tension throughout kept my attention and it was perfectly paced out throughout the story. The characters were all created with great detail and a fantastic backstory which was evident in the dialogue. The lead character, JJ, was a good, strong female protagonist who also had a caring compassionate side. The whole novel had a beautiful blend of sadness, excitement and tension. The ending couldn’t have been better written.

Little does she know that Trevor, too, used to be a member of a brutal gang named the Aryan Brotherhood---which happens to be a rival to her husband’s gang. Not only that, Trevor has an agenda of his own. By the time Kate figures it all out, it may be too late.

I started making these lists for my own use in 2013 when an Amazon policy change gutted all of the web sites that listed free Kindle books. Before the policy change, those sites would get some amount of compensation for directing people to the Amazon web site. After the policy change, they lost all compensation for the month if most of their referrals that month were for free books. So most of those web sites stopped listing the free books.
I use the description "newly free" for these book lists. That means I won't list a book again if I've listed it recently. There are so many books that are permanently free, or frequently free, that it makes it difficult to find "newly free" books manually looking through the Amazon search results. There are just too many repeats every day. But I have included the links to those Amazon searches on the category headers, so you can always click the link to see the full list if you'd like. My process just extracts the "newly free" books from those search results, by keeping a record of books I've listed in the past.
The lists are designed for easy navigation through the books. Clicking on the blurb of any given book will bring the next book in the list up to the top of the screen. This makes it easy to quickly go through them one-by-one. Each category header has an index of the various categories available, and also shows the number of books available in each category. Clicking on the category header itself will bring up the full Amazon search listing of free books for that category.
If you're in Canada, Germany, or the UK, clicking on the "CA" or "DE" or "UK" link in the top right hand corner of the document will change all of the book links from USA to Canada or Germany or the UK. But they may not be free there as they are in the USA. Usually, but not always.
If an author classifies their book as belonging to multiple genres (e.g. fantasy, horror), it will only be listed in the first genre that I process. I process the sub-categories of a major category first, so that the book will be listed in the more specific category.
The rating and # of reviews will be highlighted green to flag ratings above 4.5 stars with more than 50 reviews.
Horizontal bars above the blurbs may be red. You can ignore that. They're just reminders to me that I have already purchased that book.
Three ways to search for free (or Prime) books on Amazon:
Currently, there are about 90,000 free Kindle books, a thousand "Prime Reading" books, and over 1.6 million "Prime Eligible" books. With only a few exceptions, "Kindle Unlimited" means "Prime Eligible". "Prime Reading" offers unlimited loans per month, while "Prime Eligible" is just one loan per month.
From the initial search results, you can drill down into categories and use any of the left navigation bar filters.
Those same searches with a keyword:
Click on the "search" part of the "results for" line and you can change the search term to whatever you desire. Then you can continue as before and use the normal drill-down and/or filter choices.
There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:Kindle Freebies
The eReaderIQ web site is a price tracking service for Kindle books. It allows you to set up watch lists for books and authors, and then they will send you an email alert when a book reaches a certain price, or an author has a book with a price reduction.
The BookBub web site will send you email alerts with handpicked recommendations on books, for your selected genres. Some are free, others just have price reductions.
Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:https://archive.org/details/galaxymagazine?sort=-date
They can be downloaded as mobi files for the Kindle as well as being read online. Used to be one of my favorite SF magazines. I almost always had one with me when I was in high school.
If you're more interested in mainstream books, check to see what options you have from your local library. Many use the Overdrive or Libby sites to loan out Kindle books. If that's not available to you, or your local library has a limited collection, the "Free Library of Philadelphia" has an extensive Overdrive collection, and an out-of-state library card is only $50 per year. Less than half the price of KU.
Project Gutenberg, founded in 1971, is an Internet archive of free public domain books, created via a volunteer effort that digitizes and archives such books. You can download the Kindle format of a book and then transfer the book to your Kindle directly using a USB cable or by emailing it to your Kindle via its Send-to-Kindle email address using your email client or something like the Amazon Send-To-Kindle tool or an eBook management tool like Calibre.
Notifications of new listings will be made in various GoodReads discussion groups (e.g. Amazon Kindle), as well as on the Reddit FreeEBOOKS group. There is also an RSS Feed.
