Bargain books for January 14, 2020

BookRunes has A Mouse For the Duke as today’s bargain suggestion. $0.99. We had it a month or so ago, I thoroughly enjoyed this read. Here’s your chance if you missed it last time.

A Mouse for the Duke

Amazon quote:

Lord Declan Sheridan is content growing the family business. There’s no time for courting. He’s put all his energy, money and time into his custom furniture line. Declan is unprepared for the ultimatum given to him by his grandfather, the owner of Sheridan Furniture. Marry by Christmas or lose his inheritance!

London Taylor works as a lady’s maid by day, while secretly playing the stock market. Becoming “the mouse” was necessary to get the job. Everyone warned her that Tessa Hubbard was horrible to work for, but the job came with perks. It was supposed to be a simple thing. Wear a disguise, work hard and secretly play the stock market. When London overhears a plot, she is forced to make a choice that will alter the path of her life.

BookBub has several interesting looking bargain books this time,

Only Her Heart is the first $1.28 CDN. I enjoy Lyn Cote and I’m looking forward to this book.

Only Her Heart

Amazon quote:

Caring, hardworking, Annie Petrov’s about to quit the job she loves. Why? From day one she’s been in love with Jack Lasater, her computer-genius boss who–grasps intricate code and computer security but never understands people. Five years of being valued only as the executive assistant who makes his life easier is no longer enough for Annie. If she goes now, she can leave with her pride intact.
As she writes her letter of resignation, an unexpected call from Jack’s estranged, successful surgeon father upends Annie’s plan and Jack’s life. His dad’s multiple-facility Hope Medical network’s computers have been hacked. He needs Jack’s expertise to discover the hacker and prevent another intrusion. Jack wants nothing to do with his father, but Annie points out this should be a “bottom line” decision. And though she doesn’t say so, Jack needs to face his father. . So Jack grits his teeth and takes the job. Now she cannot leave, not when Jack needs her help to navigate the troubled waters between father and son.

The second one is Amish Promises at $0.99 I’ve read many Amish stories and this one definitely has a different spin and it looks interesting.

Amish Promises

Amazon quote:

When Joel and Shani Beck arrive at their new home, they’re looking for peace. Shani is thrilled to have Joel back from Iraq, but he needs time to heal, and the quiet of Lancaster seems just the place. They can’t imagine any trouble with their Amish neighbors, the Lehmans, but things get off to a rocky start when their son is involved in an accident that injures one of the Lehman boys.
 
Eve Lehman has run her brother’s household ever since the death of his wife, but Tim’s a stern patriarch. Despite his protests, she’s drawn to the new neighbor, Shani, and the two begin to form a strong friendship forged on faith and family. Things seem like they’ve quieted down until Joel’s single and handsome army friend Charlie catches Eve’s attention–a man unlike any Eve has ever met. Suddenly life for both families becomes more complicated than any of them could have ever imagined.

**********

and last but not least, they are suggesting a biography of Roald Amundsen, a successful polar explorer. $1.99. It looks this could be a bit of a hot topic right now. (no pun intended)

From Pole to Pole

Amazon quote:

Roald Amundsen was the most successful polar explorer of his era using sledges, dogs, skis, and ships. He is mainly remembered for being the first man to reach the South Pole on December 14, 1911. What is less often remembered is that he was also the first man to reach the North Pole on May 12, 1926 as the leader of the Amundsen-Ellsworth-Nobile expedition in the airship Norge. His involvement in aviation from his experiments with man-lifting kites in 1909 to his death in 1928 while flying from Norway to Spitsbergen has not been the subject of a detailed study until now.

From Pole to Pole explores Amundsen’s enthusiasm for flight from the moment he read about Bleriot’s flight across the English Channel in an airplane. In June 1928 Amundsen and five companions took off in a search and rescue flight for the missing airship Italia and were never seen again. The only traces of the men and their aircraft were a tip float and an empty fuel tank which washed up on the coast of Northern Norway several months later. Searches of the seabed near Bear Island for the remains of the Latham 47 flying boat he was flying in took place in 2004 and 2009 and interest in the mystery of his disappearance remains high.

We have a fair variety today which is nice.

Happy Reading

I’m sad to be slow with this post but my day job was petulant and demanding all day. Seriously, though, it did keep me going steady, but I’m not complaining. Busy is a good mood booster sometimes.
