Free and bargain books February 13, 2020

BookBub has a FREE suggestion for us this morning. It’s a book that was offered free in 2017 and I read and loved it.

Instant Daddy (Noah’s Crossing book 1)

Instant Daddy

Amazon quote:

A grateful mother…
Jessie Chandler is used to heartbreak. But she’s also used to blessings. Before her sister died, she gave Jessie the gift of a lifetime, her baby son, and Jessie is joyfully dedicating her life to raising little Jake. It isn’t until she meets Dr. Peter Sheridan, her sister’s colleague, that Jessie begins to fear heartbreak might win out.

An overwhelmed father…
Dr. Peter Sheridan never wanted to be a father. Finding a cure for neurological disease demands his full focus, and he has no room in his life for anything else. But when he sees Jake’s little face, the spitting image of his own, Peter realizes he can’t turn his back on his responsibility to his child even when he has no earthly idea how to be the daddy his son needs.

The gift of love…
Wanting the best for Jake, Jessie agrees to help Peter learn to take care of his son, even though losing the toddler she loves will destroy her.

There is a bargain book ($1.26 CDN) showing up on Amazon this morning, one we’ve seen before and it’s nice to see again. This is a collection of the four first books of four series. Several have recently been promoted separately but in case you haven’t been initiated to them here  they are again. I’m pretty sure I read all four books in this collection back in 2018 but I will have to check it out just in case I didn’t finish.

Introductions: Four Books introducing You to Four Spunky Female Sleuths

Introductions

Amazon quote:

Hazardous Duty (The Squeaky Clean Mystery Series)

On her way to completing a degree in forensic science, Gabby St. Claire drops out of school and starts her own crime scene cleaning business. When a routine cleaning job uncovers a murder weapon the police overlooked, she realizes that the wrong person is in jail. But the owner of the weapon is a powerful foe . . . and willing to do anything to keep Gabby quiet. With the help of her new neighbor, Riley Thomas, a man whose life and faith fascinate her, Gabby plays the detective to make sure the right person is put behind bars. Can Riley help her before another murder occurs?

Random Acts of Murder (The Holly Anna Paladin Mystery Series)

When Holly Anna Paladin is given a year to live, she embraces her final days doing what she loves most—random acts of kindness. But one of her extreme good deeds goes horribly wrong, implicating Holly in a string of murders. Holly is suddenly in a different kind of fight for her life. Only two other people know Holly was at the site of the murder, and one of them is the killer. Making matters stickier is the fact that the detective assigned to the case is her old high school crush and present day nemesis. Will Holly find the killer before he ruins what’s left of her life? Or will she spend her final days alone and behind bars?

Pounced (The Sierra Files)

Animal rights activist Sierra Nakamura never expected to stumble upon the dead body of a coworker while out filming a project. She definitely never expected to get involved in the investigation. But when someone threatens to kill her cats unless she hands over the “information,” she becomes more bristly than an angry feline. Sierra knows that curiosity killed the cat, but she’s determined that her snooping will ultimately save the lives of her furry friends. Making matters worse is the fact that her cats—and the investigation—are driving a wedge between her and her boyfriend Chad. With every answer she uncovers, old hurts rise to the surface and test her beliefs. In the fight for survival, one thing is certain: It’s either pounce or be pounced.

Ready to Fumble (The Worst Detective Ever)

Joey Darling, better known to the world as Raven Remington, detective extraordinaire, is trying to separate herself from her invincible alter ego. She played the spunky character for five years on the hit TV show Relentless, which catapulted her to fame and into the role of Hollywood’s sweetheart. When her marriage falls apart, her finances dwindle to nothing, and her father disappears, Joey finds herself on the Outer Banks of North Carolina, trying to piece her life back together away from the limelight. A woman finds Raven—er, Joey—and insists on hiring her fictional counterpart to find a missing boyfriend. When someone begins staging crime scenes to match an episode of Relentless, Joey has no choice but to get involved. Can Joey channel her inner Raven and unearth whodunit before she ends up totally done in?
