From USA Today bestselling authors Gin Jones and Elizabeth Ashby comes a fall fiasco of epic proportions!

Quilt appraiser Keely Fairchild just wants to have a quiet little Thanksgiving dinner at home with her boyfriend, but as the guest list grows, so do the distractions from meal preparations. First she gets dragged into investigating the theft of miniature quilts that were supposed to be featured in the guild's entry in the Danger Cove Thanksgiving parade, and then she stumbles onto a bigger mystery: who killed a local quilter and what did her death have to do with a sampler quilt she'd made to depict her life's story?

Keely struggles to figure out which elements of the quilt are clues and which are red herrings, and uncovers that the dead quilter and her mechanic husband may not have been as innocent as they seemed. Did the husband kill his quilting wife, or could it have had something to do with a stalker, an angry customer, or even a best friend who might actually be a frenemy?

If Keely can't figure it out, her life—and death—may end up depicted in her own DEADLY THANKSGIVING SAMPLER.

"Cozy mystery readers will enjoy this book. It's filled with lots of twist and turns. This is the perfect break from Thanksgiving and Christmas planning that you have been looking for!"

Washed Up (A Bromo Perkins Mystery Book 2)
by Tony Berry
$0.00, 275 pages, 4.2 out of 5.0 (18 reviews), #86 in Private Investigator Mysteries
Some people don’t need to go looking for trouble – it will always find them…

All former British secret service agent Bromo Perkins wants is a quiet life as a travel agent in Melbourne, Australia.

But he has hardly had time to dust himself off from his first roistering escapade before a sensitive earlobe – the result of an old wound from his previous career – ominously warns of more bother ahead.

It arrives in the shape of call from an attractive female client, Liz Shapcott, who claims that a young woman found washed up in the city’s river did not commit suicide as newspapers reported – but was a murder victim instead.

Bromo – who survives on a diet of coffee and malt whisky – cannot resist Liz’s pleas to help her prove her claim, though he is never quite sure what her body language implies.

What unfolds rips away the veils of respectability that mask the evil and corruption beneath appearances and behind closed doors in bustling metropolises such as Melbourne.

Who is the mysterious blind man who can walk briskly when he wishes and who watches from a distance through binoculars?
What really goes on at the much-visited but prison-like Number 85 in a select street of gentrified Richmond?

What will happen to the two young feminist activists who are bundled by heavies into a black limo along with Bromo? Can Bromo’s old flame Delia, a high-ranking police officer who works undercover, pull him out of the fire that threatens to consume him?

Washed Up , the sequel to his debut novel Done Deal , is perfect for all crime thriller addicts, combining fast-paced action and humour.

Praise for Tony Berry

“Done Deal, set in the mean streets of inner-city Richmond, is a gripping crime story” – Nicole Lindsay, the Herald Sun

“Richmond is lovingly and accurately rendered.”- Nicole Lindsay, the Herald Sun

“Bromo’s dialogue is pretty snappy and he’s a man of action. This was fun and I’m glad I ordered a copy.” -Karen, Australian Crime Fiction Website

Tony Berry is a lifelong journalist in the UK and Australia. Done Deal was the first novel Berry completed and it met with immediate success by winning a New South Wales Genre Fiction Award. Washed Up also won a NSW Genre Fiction Award plus a mentorship from the Australian Society of Authors. He has continued to work on the series, which will be completed in 2017 – all crime novels and all set in the inner Melbourne suburb of Richmond – while being kept busy as a professional editor.

It’s1940’s Panama City, Florida. The world is at war, and the growing panhandle paradise is doing its part. Tyndall Field is training pilots. Wainwright Shipyard is building battleships.

Flood Warning
by Will Rayner
$0.00, 209 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (5 reviews), #16 in 20th Century History of the U.S.

San Francisco, 1934.

In the tail end of the spring after the Prohibition, business is slow for the father and son private eye firm of Flood and Flood.

Slow, that is, until the younger son, T.J. wakes up with a hell of a headache. He’s been socked over the head during a fracas between rival gangsters.

One winds up dead in Floods’ offices, landing a hot case on their very own turf.

Who killed Benny the Bundle? And why do two huge and aggressive vice cops seem so interested in this case? Andy why do the bodies keep piling up?

Elder partner Sam Flood has more than enough on his plate, trying to keep his reckless son in line and caring for his elderly and increasingly absent-minded second wife.

The last thing he needs is someone attempting to drown him down at the wharf…

…and T.J., who has never got over the mysterious disappearance of his beloved Jessica, finds himself in increasingly hot water.

Can he trust the two hulking vice cops, who seem to be following their every move and bent on obstructing their case?

And how closely can he afford to allow Lieutenant James ‘Jimbo’ Bracken to know what he knows?

And what does a cryptic coded map bearing the legend ‘P.E.A.C.E.’ mean for the case?

What’s really inside the crates labelled ‘100 Ornamental Mother of Pearl Boxes’ that T.J. finds at the premises of Central City Distribution Service?

As the death toll mounts around them, father and son find themselves facing their toughest challenge yet.

Sam, the elder Flood, is precise and cautious, while T.J. is an irreverent, hard-drinking loner who is contemptuous of authority and likes to do things his way.

Tragedies in each of their backgrounds contribute to their stormy relationship which is about to be put under more pressure, as they realise their very lives are in the gravest danger.

The wave of crime seems to be turning against the private eyes…

Can they put their differences aside and put an end to the violent strike that has gripped San Francisco’s waterfront and spilled into the city itself?

Flood Warning is an entertaining and satisfying mystery set against the backdrop of corruption and crime that flooded America after the Prohibition. It is the first book in Rayner’s series that is set in the authentic atmosphere of San Francisco during a turbulent decade marked by a major riot, widespread police corruption, the building of two famous bridges, the establishment of Alcatraz prison and the appearance of the legendary and beloved Thoroughbred, Seabiscuit.

Will Rayner has over 30 years’ experience as a newspaper writer and editor. He has been listed in Marquis Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in the World and has published many non-fiction books such as Images of History – Twentieth Century British Columbia Through The Front Pages, Premiers in Profile – The Good, The Bad and The Transient, Scandal! 130 Years of Damnable Deeds in Lotus Land, The Canadian Journey – Provocative Glimpses Into Canada’s Past and Canada On The Doorstep: 1939.

Two strangers meet over a bloody, dismembered body...but can they find the killer before the killer finds them?

When Noah Blain opens his front door, his mind is still on the aging mother he has just helped move into assisted care. But on the threshold, a horror scene awaits.

Blood and body parts are strewn through Noah’s hallway and there is no one else in sight. At least, until Oliver Thaddeus shows up.

Having escaped California after losing his job as a private investigator, Oliver has returned to Denver, Colorado after blackmailing his ex-lover (and ex-boss) for the cool sum of $14.5M.

Eager to start his own PI agency and work crimes once more, Oliver offers Noah a place to stay and full use of his detective team to help solve the mystery of the brutal homicide.

But when it is discovered that Noah was the actual target of the killing, Oliver and Noah must go into lockdown under police guard until the perpetrator has been found.

Forced together in tragic and dangerous circumstances, complex feelings start to emerge between the two young men as their emotional scars surface. Oliver is strikingly beautiful and familiar only with being used. Noah is mildly agoraphobic and reluctant to open up. Tenderness is new – and terrifying – for them both.

But what secrets in Noah’s past have caused him to make a deadly enemy? And can Oliver’s team find the killer before their lives go from hope to despair?

At the Villa Rose & The Affair at the Semiramis Hotel: Detective Gabriel Hanaud's Cases (2 Books in One Edition)
by A. E. W. Mason
$0.00, 265 pages, 1.0 out of 5.0 (1 reviews), #88 in Private Investigator Mysteries
Detective-Inspector Gabriel Hanaud has been described as the "first major fiction police detective of the Twentieth Century". He was modelled on two real-life heads of the Paris Sûreté, Macé and Goron. Émile Gaboriau's Monsieur Lecoq was also an acknowledged inspiration. Mason wanted to physically differentiate Hanaud from Sherlock Holmes as much as possible, and so he made him stout and broad-shouldered in contrast to Holmes who was thin. He often relies on psychological methods to solve cases and is assisted by his friend, the fastidious Mr Julius Ricardo, a former City of London financier. Hanaud was portrayed on screen several times – with adaptations of At the Villa Rose and its sequel The House of the Arrow. He has been seen as one of a number of influences on the creation of Agatha Christie's Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.

THE ADVENTURE OF THE FIRST STAR (The Midwinter Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes Book 2)
by Craig Janacek
$0.00, 72 pages, 3.6 out of 5.0 (16 reviews), #50 in Traditional Detective Mysteries
December 22, 1895. The Victorian holiday season is of little cheer to Sherlock Holmes, whose ever-racing mind is left without a purpose when the season of goodwill engenders a tedious lull in unlawful activities. Even the arrival of Inspector Gregson with the story of an unidentified corpse in the Underground fails to rouse his interest for long. But when a madman begins to attack Christmas trees throughout London, Holmes and his trusted partner Dr. Watson are on the case. What at first seems like a simple diversion soon proves to be far more complex, and only a tour-de-force series of deductions by Holmes can bring a conclusion to a decade old crime. Following in the footsteps of ‘The Adventure of the Manufactured Miracle,’ and fully in the magnanimous spirit of ‘The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle,’ comes another scintillating demonstration of Holmes’ ratiocinations and a hearty reunion with his brother. For even the seemingly-emotionless Sherlock Holmes should not spend Christmas away from his family and friends.
Fully annotated, this edition contains a cornucopia of scholarly insights that compare this newly unearthed tale by Dr. John H. Watson to the classic adventures from the Canon of Sherlock Holmes.

Looking for a killer, hunting a lion and defending his own integrity — makes being a cop in L.A. seem like the good old days.

Six Hard Days In Andalusia: An action thriller
by Damian Vargas
$0.00, 398 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (32 reviews), #6 in International Mystery & Crime

The perfect time-killer in 2020!

When an old-time British villain and his crew meet their end in a bloody shoot-out on the Costa del Sol, it's of little concern to most. After all, gangsters get killed. It's what happens in their line of work. Allegiances change. Men die. It's the way of things. However, when Mary Lawson a.k.a. 'The Accountant', a former MI6 agent turned independent contractor to the mob, is instructed by her shady bosses to investigate, things quickly get a lot more complicated. Hardened by her years in British military intelligence and ruthlessly professional, the woman who is no stranger to death and suffering, sets out to find who is responsible. However, on the 'Costa del Crime' with its regular influx of millions of tourists, a history of political corruption, and a diverse and thriving criminal underworld, nothing is ever simple.

The father that deserted his family. The prodigal daughter, fallen from grace. A hoard of devious, manipulating and violent characters. And an unfortunate British tourist who gets caught up in the middle of the whole bloody mess.

Six Hard Days in Andalusia is the first in Damian Vargas's 'Costa del Crime' series of action thrillers. Vargas constructs an enthralling and intricate plot, weaves in a cast of unique characters, and then places them in wonderfully-visualised, real-world locations in southern Spain. Ex-pats and holidaymakers alike will recognise many of the novel's settings.

Some highlights from recent reader reviews...

- "Rollicking good fun with surprising depth".
- "It’s incredibly well plotted and quite extraordinary for a 1st book".
- "This is a great novel, that moves quickly, surprises, entertains and is equally violent, humorous and tragic".
- "Fans of Carl Hiaasen will find a lot to love here".
- "Violent yet amusing, exciting with a warm heart".
- "As close to unputdownable as real life allows".
- "Perfect holiday reading".
- "Much more riveting and original than a lot of action drama novels - people like Patterson can crack out the formulaic novels but takes a lot more skill and insight to produce a book with intense suspense, attention to detail and random bouts of (often dark) comedy - all present here in abundance. Recommended!"
- "Great characters, compelling plot and well written".
- "Hard to believe it's a first novel - as good and better than I've read from more established authors".
- "The descriptions of the scenery and venues for the action were also vivid and evocative. All in all a great read and one that I struggled to put down".

Bennett Sisters Mysteries Volume 5 & 6 (Bennett Sisters Mysteries boxsets series Book 3)
by Lise McClendon
$0.00, 396 pages, 4.3 out of 5.0 (22 reviews), #1 in International Mystery & Crime
It's Eat Pray Love meets murder mystery in Lise McClendon's deliciously cozy chronicles of sisterhood, international travel ... and a soupçon of danger.

That's the delicious underpinning of this sprawling, exuberant, generous-spirited cozy mystery series with a yummy side of international adventure. A little bit chick lit, a touch of cozy mystery, a whole lot of humor, romance, suspense--all in one box set!

These two books continue the adventures of the five lawyer sisters that started with Blackbird Fly. On to The Girl in the Empty Dress, Give Him the Ooh-la-la, and The Things We Said Today... (also available in box sets) to these two stories that follow Merle Bennett's journey from the US to France, with her French boyfriend, Pascal.


Ooh-la-la, who doesn't love a Frenchman?

Merle Bennett goes back to France -- and her Frenchman -- in this fifth installment of the Bennett Sisters mysteries. Sure that La Belle France will cure all her ills, and help her write a novel about the French Revolution, she sets out to prove her theory correct. Pascal, her Frenchman, scoffs at this. As a policeman he knows France is pretty to look at but not all that pretty under the surface.

While Merle writes and renovates her stone cottage, Pascal encounters an old enemy, a man he put in prison years before. When Pascal disappears Merle isn't sure if their relationship is over, or something terrible has happened.

A soupçon of danger, a brush with 'madame guillotine,' and the quirky characters of the French countryside, all collide in this installment of the Bennett Sisters Mysteries, set in la belle France-- where, obviously, wine, sunshine, sunflowers, and Frenchmen cure all ills. Or do they?


A Gothic Romance by 'Merle Bennett'

Deep in the French countryside-- as the country reels through rebellion, beheadings, and starvation-- a goat-herder named Odette is trying to survive. Just that-- survival is on her mind. Since she marched to Versailles with a group of Parisian women to protest the high prices of wheat, her life has spun out of control. She's fled the capital for the countryside. But what will happen to her? Can she stay in the Dordogne where the kindly farmers have taken pity on her?

'Odette and the Great Fear' is a novella from the novel, 'The Frenchman,' by Lise McClendon. Merle Bennett, the main character, is writing a novel. Here the story is fleshed out, characters come into focus, and outcomes are decided. Will Odette and her handsome stranger find each other? How did the Count get his horrible scar? Will the villagers burn out the nobles for good?

All these delicious details, mixed with a terrifying and exhilarating time in history, make 'Odette and the Great Fear' a quick but intriguing read.

Next up in the series is 'Blame it on Paris,' Bennett Sisters Mystery #8, after the Sister's French Cookbook, filled with delicious recipes inspired by the series. Get the cookbook for free by signing up for the newsletter at the author's website: - I hope you enjoy the books.

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


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 Magazine

Galaxy Science Fiction was an American digest-size science fiction magazine, published from 1950 to 1980, and they are now offered free online:

​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.
