BookRunes has a FREE book suggestion this morning, No Greater Love. My first response to the synopsis for this book is negative. The thought of helping someone end their life feels very uncomfortable to me. But…. I’ve read this author before and enjoyed her books. The intent expressed is one thing but maybe twists and turns will provide surprises and this story won’t go where I expect it to. I’m going to take a chance on this story and see how it all turns out.
For the most part, Kirby Shelton is content with her life. She’s building a new law practice in Colorado Springs, after losing her first in a bitter divorce, and loves to skydive in her spare time. Then she meets Leah Dalton, the computer software queen, and her world is suddenly turned upside down.
Leah, facing a losing battle with cancer, comes to Kirby with a plan to end her life on her terms. Inviting Kirby, and five of her closest friends, to her estate, she offers to make one of them a multi-millionaire. All they have to do is kill her and make it look like an accident.
It sounds like something out of the Twilight Zone, but Kirby gives into her morbid curiosity and takes Leah up on her invitation. After meeting Leah’s friends and sensing the love and dedication they have for this woman, it’s easy to assume one of them will go along with her absurd plan.
While checking out No Greater Love I found several interesting bargain suggestions from Amazon.
The first one is Second Chance Protectors with Alexa Verde, another author I enjoy. It’s a three book collection in the Love, Faith, and Danger series, a bargain at $1.30
Book 1: Brett, Her Bodyguard
Security specialist Brett Jarvis and nanny Ashley Lamott have nothing in common—apart from both loving his twin niece and nephew. When his brother disappears, the children and their nanny are threatened. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect them and find his brother.
Book 2: Colt, Her Reunion
His ex-wife is back. And she’s the target of a serial killer.
Physical attraction and shared love for their twins weren’t enough to keep brilliant scientist Colt Jarvis and his security specialist ex-wife together last time. But when the serial killer who almost murdered Mirabella once before threatens her life, Colt will do whatever it takes to keep her safe.
Book 3: David, Her Cowboy
When rancher and disabled veteran David King finds a baby in peril, the last woman he’d expect to help is serial dater and disgraced news anchor Aster Andrades.
Another bargain; Witness Protection Collection at $1.29 CDN. I’ve not read this author before but with three books at this low price I just can’t pass up the opportunity to see what he is all about.
The Amazon synopsis is long so I’m not going to quote it this time but I hope you will search it out.
Last but not least, another book from another favorite author – Christy Barritt’s Line of Duty. This will make twelve Barritt books I’ve downloaded. I’ve read most of them.
Jaxon Wilder didn’t plan on returning home to Fog Lake, Tennessee, following his tour of duty in Iraq. But after a gut-wrenching failure during his stint in the Army, he now faces a new challenge: his family.
Abby Brennan always did her best to be the good girl and to live by the rules. When a wrong decision changes her entire life, she tries to hide from the world. However, a madman known as the Executioner is determined to find her and enact his own brand of justice.
When Jaxon and Abby are thrown together in the killer’s crosshairs, they’re forced to depend on one another to survive.
It’s a good thing there’s a winter storm expected here in Manitoba this weekend. They are predicting tons of snow and with this awesome pile of new books there is some serious reading to be done.
I finished reading First Wave (loved it) and have moved on to Grime Beat. I feel like No Greater Love will be next.
A blogger I follow shared a story about special learning moments with his father, then asked his readers to share similar moments they had with their parents. (on their own blog if they want to)
Mine was by example rather than words and conversation. My deep love of reading had it’s beginning watching my mother read, I’ve never forgotten where it all started.
Well, the snow day has started, and it’s sounds like we will not be alone. This is an equal opportunity storm, sharing it’s wealth widespread. Some areas will receive three or more times what we expect. Please take care and be safe.
