I couldn’t help but continue the search for good books this morning and two more grabbed my attention. They are bargain books and I started a new post for tomorrow (Dec 31st,) but rethought the idea and decided to not wait, in case the price changes overnight. That would be so disappointing. I’m going to cheat and leave tomorrow’s date though. (big smile)
A bargain book ($1.99) on Amazon, Garden of Dreams. Leslie Gould has appeared once before on my download list. Reading the first few pages now, I’m looking forward to checking this out.
Raised by a mother who was haunted by worry and fear, Jill vowed to live a different kind of life. As a young woman, she planned out what she wanted—a husband, a large home full of children, the opportunity to paint and grow a beautiful garden, a community of believers, and a best friend—then watched as it all came true in the art-filled town of Ashland, Oregon.
But Jill has a secret that she has kept from those she loves most, including her husband and her best friend, Caye—and she’s not the only one with something to hide. Her mother also has not told Jill the whole truth about her father and the disease that claimed his life. Together, these secrets shatter Jill’s idyllic world.
Another cool looking bargain book, Alias Raven Black ($1.31) I’ve not read this author before so don’t know what to expect but the first page has me wanting to read and find out what this is about too.
Brenna has lived most of her life just left of the right side of the law. While on vacation at a secluded ski resort, her past finally catches up with her. Her father, who she hasn’t seen since she ran away at sixteen, suddenly wants to reconcile.
Before she can make sense of that overture, the FBI whisk her off to Minneapolis. In exchange for a clean slate, she is recruited to work as a mole in the home of known mobster and suspected drug lord, Anthony Giordano. Under the alias, Raven Black, she becomes nanny to Giordano’s children.
Brenna’s hands are full just learning to mother two spoiled kids, while her main objective, finding information that would put their father away for life, remains elusively out of reach.
Will the secrets she discovers bring absolution from the past she’s tried so hard to leave behind or simply tear her heart in two?
If anything shows up via email tomorrow, I will post again.
