Chautona Havig’s Friday Freebie is Vintage Wren January. It was originally published in installments and later gathered into a book. This is the first book in the whole series.
The Vintage Wren is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes. Volume One contains the first four and a half episodes in one full-length novel.
Cassie Wren. Legal assistant. Convenience queen. Thrifter extraordinaire. If there was a “green police” she’d be a fugitive from eco-friendly justice.
But when a friend’s teasing feels like a challenge, Cassie accepts it. The result? One year. Twelve months. Fifty-two weeks. Three hundred sixty-five days–of green.
It seemed simple enough. Cut back on paper plates, plastic forks, and straws. Easy peasy. But when her competitive side wars against her desire for convenience, Cassie finds it’s not so easy to be “eco-friendly” and “Cassie-friendly.”

Shelter I read and enjoyed this book about four years ago, it’s one of my favorites.
She begged God to rescue her.
He said, “Go.”
So she headed out into the blizzard. In a car that wasn’t exactly hers, with a dog who wasn’t exactly a rat terrier, she drove. Until she ran out of gas in the small Maine town of Mattawooptock. Mattawoopwhat? What on earth is God thinking?
But it is there, in a weird little bathroom in a weird little church in a weird little town that Maggie Hansen finds herself. And as God would have it, she finds a lot more than that.
You will love this book because it will warm your heart. Read it today!

Hope Harbor is from another author that I enjoy, Irene Hannon
Tracy Campbell never wanted to leave Hope Harbor, Oregon, or the idyllic three-generation cranberry farm where she grew up. But life–and love–altered her plans. When tragedy strikes and changes her plans yet again, she finds herself back in her hometown with a floundering farm to run and a heartbreaking secret. Romance is not on her agenda. Nor is it on Michael Hunter’s. The visitor from Chicago has daunting secrets of his own. But when Tracy recruits him to help save a struggling charitable organization, the winds of change begin to sweep through Hope Harbor, bringing healing, hope, and love to countless lives–including their own.
I’m currently reading Hush and it is sill FREE. It’s definitely suspenseful.
It reminds me of a favorite TV show, Missing, that lasted a couple of seasons around 2003. Here is part of the Google blurb describing it – Jess Mastriani was a normal person who only wanted to take over her parents’ restaurant in Indiana. But that changes when she is hit by lightning, after which she begins seeing visions of missing people. Jess decides to put her newfound ability to use as a consultant to the FBI to help locate missing individuals.
The protagonist in this book wasn’t struck by lightening but has an inherited trait behind the dreams. Hopefully it will be enough to save her life. I’m only half way through the story so it will be awhile before I find out for sure. I’m guessing it will be fine, though, since we seem to go for good endings.
Maybe this book reminds me a little of TV’s Criminal Minds too.
Happy Friday reading!!
