Bargain books April 21, 2021

BookBub has two bargain suggestions for us. One I’ve read and one not. In that order.

Bitter Autumn: Clean Romance Mystery (Northern Shore Intrigue Book 2)

Amazon quote:

Will anyone in his hometown ever forgive him for what he did?

A changed man, Grey Lawson returns home on parole after serving seven years of his sentence.

The only reason he’s coming home to small town Winfield on the shore of Lake Superior is to care for his great-aunt Elsie who raised him.

He can’t believe he didn’t realize seven years ago that everything he did affected this good woman. But will his return cause her more grief?

Create trouble for new deputy sheriff Trish Franklin whose father has reason to hate Grey? But one truth many don’t realize until it’s too late—vengeance can be dangerous.


While looking at this book I happened across book 4 in the same series, also at a bargain price. How awesome is that?

Spring’s Storm: Clean Romance Mystery (Northern Intrigue Book 4)

Amazon quote:

Sometimes the storm takes you with it~
Thea Glenheim’s new next door neighbor turns her small town upside down.

Trace Della’s handsome, successful and committed to helping high risk boys.
And he’s changing things in ways a lot of people don’t like.
One in particular.

Bad things begin happening on Trace’s property and troublemakers compete with each other to stop him in his mission to provide a place for kids who need help.

All the while Thea is caught in the middle–between the people she’s known all her life and this new man in town. He’s a mover and shaker. She’s a quiet piano teacher. Yet opposites attract, don’t they?

But when and how will the nastiness end? And will it end before someone gets hurt? Badly?


This is the second BookBub suggestion. It is looking very interesting.

Every Secret Thing (Acts of Valor, Book 2): Romantic Suspense

Amazon quote:

Former NFL Player Turned Navy SEAL Battles Life and Death for Love and Justice in the Christian Romantic Suspense, Every Secret Thing, by Rebecca Hartt

–Present Day, Virginia Beach, Virginia–

Navy SEAL Lt. Lucas Strong isn’t about to let his platoon leader, Lt. Mills, go to prison for a crime he didn’t commit. It’s their retiring commander who should face court-martial for amassing stolen weapons. With the evidence proving the commander’s guilt destroyed, and every witness dead, Lucas must find his only remaining hope, Charlotte Patterson, a gutsy NCIS intern with a photographic memory–missing but believed alive.

Freed by a real-life hero, Charlotte Patterson is happy to join the fight, certain the corrupt commander murdered her supervisor. But her detailed memory is fading fast, and Lucas’s belief that God has everything under control could get them killed; Charlotte knows first-hand God doesn’t oversee everything.

Now with mercenaries hot on their heels, taking on a man protected by rank becomes deadly, pushing Lucas and Charlotte ever closer, turning their friendship into something much more and leaving Charlotte with just one prayer; that Lucas is right…God really is the master planner.


I’m so excited. Browsing the suggestion strip, I found that books 1 and 3 in this series are also bargain priced. I’m going for it.

Returning to Eden (Acts of Valor, Book 1): Romantic Suspense

Amazon quote:

Presumed Dead, Navy SEAL Returns Home to Fight an Unseen Enemy in the Christian Romantic Suspense, Returning to Eden, by Rebecca Hartt

–Present Day, Virginia Beach, Virginia–

A dead man stands on her doorstep.

When the Navy wrote off her MIA husband as dead, Eden came to terms with being a widow. But now, her Navy SEAL husband is staring her in the face. Eden knows she should be over-the-moon, but she isn’t.

Diagnosed with PTSD and amnesia, Navy SEAL Jonah Mills has no recollection of their fractured marriage, no memory of Eden nor her fourteen-year-old daughter. Still, he feels a connection to both.

Unfit for active duty and assigned to therapy, Jonah knows he has work to do and relies on God, who sustained him during captivity, to heal his mind, body, and hopefully his family.


Cry in the Wilderness (Acts of Valor, Book 3): Romantic Suspense

Amazon quote:

Navy SEAL Finds Freedom, Love and Redemption in the Christian Romantic Suspense, Cry in the Wilderness, by Rebecca Hartt

–Present Day, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma–

Rachel LeMere is certain she’ll never love again. It’s taken three years to move past the tragic death of her husband and high-school sweetheart, Blake.

Rachel’s adoptive brother, a military lawyer, has managed to gain shared custody of her twelve-year-old son, Liam. Forced to live with her brother and endure his cruelty, Rachel promises her son they will escape to freedom and a new life. If only she can convince Blake’s best friend, Saul, to help them escape.

Legendary Navy SEAL Saul Wade is headed to Oklahoma to reclaim the ranch where he grew up. It’s bad enough Saul has to face his tragic past. Honor also demands he risk his entire career by helping a woman he scarcely knows.

What begins as a debt to a friend sets Saul on a journey of forgiveness, healing, and love. But when evil threatens his and Rachel’s burgeoning relationship, Saul is forced to make a life-changing decision—remain America’s top sniper or allow God’s grace to give him a whole new reason for living.


Well, it’s been a good day for books, I’m looking forward to reading all of them. It doesn’t always happen this way and I like it when it does.

I’ll save my current read to share tomorrow, just in case I’m short on something to talk about.

In the meantime…

Happy Reading

P.S. If for some reason these books don’t come up for you, keep trying. I don’t know what’s going on with their system these days but these books are there somewhere, that’s for sure
