A QUIRKY HISTORICAL COZY WITH A STRONG FEMALE PROTAGONIST

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 become 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.

ED NOON MYSTERY #5

"That's just one of the reasons I had fallen for her so hard. She had my line of patter, my kind of thinking. I like people who laugh when they're facing a firing squad."--Ed Noon, Private Eye

Ed Noon receives an odd alarm clock in the mail with a mysterious message that leads to a showdown with some very murderous ex-Nazis and a diabolical plot to sabotage America's next, most crucial A-bomb test. Noon is reunited with the lovely Alma Wheeler (from THE TALL DOLORES) and has his very first contact with the White House... a contact which will ultimately lead to his future employment as a spy for Mr. President in many cases and years to come.

ED NOON SERIES

The Adventures of Ed Noon, Private Eye, span over 30 novels written between 1953 and 1990. Noon starts out dirt poor with a tiny office in Midtown Manhattan (his "Mouse Auditorium") but success moves him to better digs, a lovely secretary (Melissa Mercer) and, eventually, the most important client of all: the President of the United States. The series concludes with a daring turn toward science fiction in the last two novels. Through it all, the wisecracking Noon is consistent: a movie and baseball-obsessed romantic who always fights the good fight. And, more often than not, wins.

The Complete Kate Benedict Cozy British Mysteries (The Kate Benedict Series)
by Carrie Bedford
$0.00, pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #1 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Traditional Detectives

A BRITISH COZY TO DIE FOR

With just a hint of the paranormal…

Kate Benedict at first seems a delightfully by-the-book cozy female lead: a successful architect at an elegant firm in rainy London with a penchant for sleuthing, even if it means landing her smack dab in the middle of the wrong place at the wrong time. But she has something else going for her no other genre investigator does—the mysterious ability to see a death-predicting aura over the people around her. And she just can’t help but help them avoid the unthinkable—at all costs.

Now available as one complete box set, this irresistible murder mystery series is sure to be a treat for international suspense armchair travelers that like their cozy female sleuths smart, savvy, and a tad psychic. Think traditional British mystery with a metaphysical twist.

THE AURA

Life spins out of control for Kate Benedict when she sees a dancing aura above certain people’s heads that seems to signal death. Suddenly she’s psychic. But that can't be! Psychic’s not acceptable in her circle, where the supernatural is strictly for the superstitious. And yet…people are dying. People close to her.

Kate's tentative attempts to talk about her new-found metaphysical gift are met with eye rolls, so much so that she can’t even tell the nice Scotland Yard detective who's investigating the death of a close friend, Rebecca Williams. And now Rebecca’s neighbor has an aura.

DOUBLE BLIND

Two politicians and her best friend have the death-predicting auras London architect Kate Benedict can see despite her most fervent wishes. She’s had the dubious gift for a year now, and suddenly there’s no longer any ignoring it.

But the only way to get to the two pols is via her old friend, DCI Clarke; yet her warnings go unheeded. Her frustration builds when her best friend, Anita, refuses to believe in the auras’ existence as well —even when one appears over Anita’s boss in the hospital where she works. And then Anita develops her own aura.

THE FLORENTINE CYPHER

What began as a quiet Friday night dinner date with an old childhood friend turns into a manhunt when Kate arrives at the rendezvous just in time to find her friend Ethan leaving in a taxi. Kate is alarmed to see the distinctive swirling pattern above his head. When Ethan’s disappearance is followed by a series of cryptic text messages, Kate goes looking for him at his sister’s house in Florence, but it’s immediately clear that whatever danger threatened Ethan in London has followed Kate to Italy—his sister Claire has a matching aura! Soon Kate and Claire are on the run, constantly watched and followed,repeatedly threatened and attacked … never knowing who they can trust.

THE SCOTTISH CONNECTION

Kate is off to a glamorous weekend party in Scotland at the formerly grand castle belonging to the uncle of her boyfriend Josh. But the festive occasion turns solemn when Kate notices an aura above the head of Josh’s beloved Uncle Fergus. Blessed – or cursed – with the ability to see auras that indicate that death is imminent, Kate can sometimes avert disaster –if she can discover the source of the danger. Otherwise, Josh’s favorite uncle will die in a matter of days.

Thus is the scene set for a deliciously traditional British cozy with a touch of the paranormal thriller – complete with ghostly characters from the past; the requisite medieval weapons collection; and a creepy, ruined, closed-off wing of the castle. There’s also a vaguely menacing assortment of servants and locals and a castleful of dodgy house guests, all wrapped up in mysterious gloom as thick as the Scottish fog… but warmed by a cozy library fire and a nearly priceless collection of single malt scotches.

by Gerald Verner
$0.00, 156 pages, 0.0 out of 5.0 (0 reviews), #62 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Mystery > Traditional Detectives
That deceptively sleepy-eyed detective, Mr. Budd, was spending a short holiday with his friend Alan Denman, a retired newspaper reporter, when he became involved in one of the most intricate and difficult cases of his career.

The murders at Little Ditchling seemed to defy solution, especially the choice of the unusual weapon. There was doubt too that they were all the work of the same hand, and yet obviously connected in some way.

Will Mr. Budd eventually untangle the truth and supply his reporter friend with a final ‘scoop’ to end his career?

Gerald Verner can always be relied upon to keep the pace fast and pile mystery and excitement on mystery and excitement until the unexpected solution.

Gerald Verner (1897-1980) was the pseudonym of British writer John Robert Stuart Pringle. Born in London, Verner wrote more than 120 novels that have been translated in over 35 languages, and many of his books have been adapted into films, radio serials and stage plays. Verner also wrote forty-four Sexton Blake tales.

If You See Kay Jig: A Badge Bunny Booze Humorous Mystery (The Badge Bunny Booze Mystery Collection Book 6)
by Quinn Glasneck
$0.00, 164 pages, 5.0 out of 5.0 (24 reviews), #2 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Humor & Entertainment > Humor > Men, Women & Relationships

Snarky, inappropriate, and irreverent!

BJ is thrown for a loop when her daily routine is interrupted by Hooch, himself. He’s signed the bar up to participate in the annual Celtic Festival. Sure, it’s for a great cause. BJ and her crew are happy to help the Fallen Officer’s Family fund, but a little forewarning would have been nice.

I mean, what’s not to love about the Highland games?

All those brawny men in their kilts out there throwing wood around. The Beavers from Polly’s Cove, the Golden Cocks from Bumpass, and the mafia?

Something isn’t quite right.

A wise-guy insurance salesman puts BJ on edge when he insists that she’ll be safer once she buys his brand of insurance. Is the mafia moving to town?

Ruh-roh!

Trouble is just a hatchet’s throw away, and it seems to have BJ’s name on it. Wow, someone’s about to get whacked.

Quinn and Glasneck, high on the beer fumes from a signing party at a local brewery, decided to take a step away from their usual writing styles to put together a new mystery in the style of Stephanie Plum novels – that is if Stephanie had a younger southern cousin, who ran a bar, and had a thing for sexy police uniforms.

What's a Badge Bunny, you ask?

It’s a person who finds cop uniforms a big turn on and has no problem acting on the temptations.

Praise for the Badge Bunny Booze series!

"It’s just a little family history. What could go wrong?"



When Lizzie Clydell agreed to join her grandmother at the church’s genealogy group meeting she expected nothing more than lemon squares and a few stories. Instead, an old diary leads Lizzie down a dusty road of lies, hidden family secrets, and a lynching that nearly destroyed her family.

Still strug­gling with the loss of her parents two decades ear­lier, Lizzie must con­front a painful past that others hoped was forgotten. Her journey becomes even more difficult as she realizes those around her may not be as they seem.

Can Lizzie make peace with the past or will it destroy the relationships she holds most dear?

Joining her is a group of lifelong friends known to Lizzie as The Gals. Headed up by her own grandmother, the group of women guide her through the past with humor, encouragement, and tough love as she learns about grace and forgiveness.

Set in small town Georgia, Finding Eliza is a contemporary story with flashes of his­tor­i­cal fic­tion as Lizzie digs into 1930s segregation, illegal interracial relationships, and the fear of the KKK.

Trigger Warning: Sexual and physical assault is referrenced though not graphic in description.

"The most intriguing style to me (was) that you could tell one story three ways and do it with such grace and elegance." D.M.

"I couldn't put it down!" Y.F.

by Gregory C. Randall
$0.00, 299 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (12 reviews), #60 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Literature & Fiction > Action & Adventure > Women's Adventure
Diamonds For Death is Book 5 in the ongoing action thriller adventures of Sharon O’Mara.

Most fans in North America consider the game of baseball to be an exciting and relaxing pastime, but little more than that. It's rich men playing a children's game - not a matter of life or death. Yet for many young players in third world countries, baseball is a a golden ticket dangling in front of them. It is their chance to escape poverty and grab a bright new future - if they are lucky and skilled enough to seize it. Toro Rodriguez, Cuban slugger and expert right fielder, is one of the fortunate ones to make it big in the American major leagues. However, the price he pays for his success is brutal—he had to leave is family in Cuba. Now they’ve been kidnapped and secretly held somewhere by a government agent that wants to use them to force him back to Cuba.

In this fast-paced fifth installment of the Sharon O'Mara action-adventure-thriller series, Gregory C. Randall combines the world of international baseball with political repression, diamond smuggling, and murder. O'Mara, a tough veteran of the Iraqi War and now successful fixer and facilitator, is hired to go to Cuba to retrieve Rodriquez's family. Meanwhile, her pal Kevin Bryan, is hired to stop a diamonds for guns operation that stretches from the Caribbean to Europe and Africa. Both Sharon and Kevin will need all their skills and wits to survive their seemingly separate missions that come crashing back together in San Francisco.

A reviewer said about this about the author: "Randall exhibits all of the tools of a top-notch thriller writer. However, unlike many authors in the field he opts for more realistic action than the overblown variety. Expertly employing the techniques of backstory, character development, believable dialogue, and rising suspense, he has crafted a story that can stand toe-to-toe with some of the best examples in the genre out there." Excerpted from a review by John E. Roper – The US Review of Books

“Diamonds For Death” is a carefully crafted mystery adventure that continues to demonstrate and document Randall as a master storyteller. Exceptionally well written, “Diamonds For Death” is a solid entertainment from beginning to end and highly recommended for mystery/suspense enthusiasts. From a review by The Midwest Book Review

Notes and Tips


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.


Free book searches on Amazon

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.


Reddit Groups

There are two Reddit groups that regularly have free Kindle books listed:

Kindle Freebies
Free E-Books


eReaderIQ

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.


BookBub

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 Magazine

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.


Overdrive

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.


Gutenberg

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.
