Author Chautona Havig recommended a bargain book on her Facebook page tonight, The Number of Love. I’d wait ’till tomorrow to mention this but it could easily be time sensitive, so… here it is at $0.99. This is not a familiar author to me but I trust Chautona’s judgement. I’m excited to read this, maybe it will be next.
Three years into the Great War, England’s greatest asset is their intelligence network–field agents risking their lives to gather information, and codebreakers able to crack every German telegram. Margot De Wilde thrives in the environment of the secretive Room 40, where she spends her days deciphering intercepted messages. But when her world is turned upside down by an unexpected loss, for the first time in her life numbers aren’t enough.
Drake Elton returns wounded from the field, followed by an enemy who just won’t give up. He’s smitten quickly by the intelligent Margot, but how can he convince a girl who lives entirely in her mind that sometimes life’s answers lie in the heart?
Amid biological warfare, encrypted letters, and a German spy who wants to destroy not just them but others they love, Margot and Drake will have to work together to save themselves from the very secrets that brought them together.
I’m currently reading Cold Terror, a book from today’s first post. It’s a excellent read and I’m two-thirds of the way through it already. It’s still a bargain at $1.31 if you want to grab a copy.
Partial Amazon quote:
Forensic artist Hannah Perry’s skills make her a valuable asset to the police in solving criminal investigations.
Now she’s taking a much-needed vacation on a secluded island with her young son. But a young woman has been murdered. Her body unidentified. Her skull recently discovered by the police, and Hannah feels compelled to help find the killer. She decides to work on the reconstruction in the evenings while her son sleeps. But as the woman’s face takes shape, an assailant invades Hannah’s cabin and tries to end her life. Before he can permanently silence her, she and her son flee the island in a small boat. Trouble is, as they approach Cold Harbor, ocean waves capsize the boat, enveloping them both in cold terror.
She’s been rescued from drowning by a former Seal. He has the resources to protect her but her life is still in danger. Her unknown attacker has exceptional military skills and keeps showing up, determined to kill her. A frustration to her security team.
It’s been a good day for books,
