Books started but not finished May 03, 2020 Edition

It’s time again to clear out the collection of started-but-not-read. Books I tried to like but just couldn’t get into for some reason. This isn’t a commentary on whether they are good or bad. I would have had to read farther along for the ability to make that kind of declaration. I’ll admit there were a few I did decide I didn’t like, but for the most part it was just lack of interest.

So, in no particular order here goes.

The Zenia WoodCitizens of Logan Pond

Secrets and Lies TBRRemnants

Ride onTested by Fire

The Victory ClubThe deepest waters

The Gilded LilyTerminus

A letter from AmericaThe half Hanged Man


The first bunch were only taste tested. This next bunch all made it past 20%, some much higher than that before abandonment.

A Secret HopeFront Window

Death in the BeginningThe Evangelist

ElysiaYou Saw too much

Explosive ForceRelentless Love

The Seeking SeriesSacred Bond Guardians bks 1 to 3

I’ve read complete books in these two collections, just not all three of each.

Some of the books mentioned today have been on my device since 2018, it’s good to have things cleaned up and the number of pages reduced somewhat. I’d like to get it back  to under twenty pages but I don’t think that is going to happen anytime soon. 🙂

Happy Reading! May you find many books to like.

Another installment of Read and Enjoyed

Two parts to this April listing of Read and Enjoyed was not in the original plan. I have a bad habit of clicking in places I ought not to when I’m clearly not ready to hit publish. I’m never sure how it happens but I would guess it’s impatience. Wishful thinking that the computer will work faster than it does. Clicking in the right spot prematurely brings amazingly bad results sometimes. Oh well, no harm done… this time.

So to carry on…

This first book was a fun read. It reminded me of Get Smart the TV series from the ‘sixties. Not quite believable but fun anyway. I’m happy to report this is still FREE.

Red Rover, Red Rover (The Accidental Cases of Emily Abbott Book 1)

Red Rover

Amazon quote:

He makes terrible coffee, but he sure is good in a car chase!

Emily Abbott is working hard as a coffee barista in downtown Phoenix, keeping one eye on her tiny college fund and the other on the mysterious new guy with his profound lack of coffee-making skills. Just when she thinks they might be getting the hang of working together, she’s abruptly thrust into his world of espionage and danger.

Brent Peterson, aka Agent Nighthawk, needs her help protecting a defecting enemy spy and keeping the information he carries out of the wrong hands. But she’s just a barista—what can she do?


This next one is not trying to be fun but was a good read nonetheless. It’s still a bargain at $1.99

Agent Undercover (Rose Mountain Refuge Book 1) 

Agent Undercover

The traumatized six-year-old boy hasn’t said one word since the unsolved murder of his single mother. And now, the killer is after the child—and the devoted uncle raising him, Dr. Dylan Seabrook. Working undercover in the boy’s school, DEA agent Paige Ashworth is determined to find the murderer.But she can’t tell Dylan her real identity, what she knows—or just how close to the case she really is. Dylan’s strength and fierce love for his nephew soon have Paige longing to join their family. First,though, they must catch a killer who never wants little Alex to speak again.

Serenity Landing Second Chances Compilation: (Serenity Landing & Beyond – The Collections Book 3)

Second Landing Second Chances

Amazon quote:

A down-on-her-luck single mom and the heir to an American political dynasty.
A pregnant mom with no place to live and a child television star with a royal brother.
A duchess trying to escape from under her father’s tyranny and the Crown Prince who’s loved her for years.
Three women in the cottage yarn industry. Three men who don’t understand their fascination, but love them anyway.


BookRunes also has a FREE suggestion for us…

Chronicles of the Mercy Giver: A Race for Tomorrow Thriller (Book One)

Chronicles of the Mercy Giver

Amazon quote:

From the author who shocked the world with his groundbreaking and bestselling Battle Series, comes Mark Romang’s most chilling thriller yet.
Investigative journalist Lauren Kramer, a rising star in the Cable TV news industry, has just been given the assignment of a lifetime. Find an angel and interview him, and do it within a four-week window.
Lauren’s target is a mysterious being who has rescued people from peril all over the world, only to disappear without a trace soon after performing the miracle. Armed with various newspaper accounts of the alleged angel’s exploits, an artist rendering of the angel’s face, and assisted by a kindly seminary professor specializing in angel studies, Lauren hits the road in an all-out effort to do the impossible and acquire the interview.
But Lauren soon discovers she isn’t the only one searching for the hero. A secretive group of people have spent large sums of money trying to capture him. And the more Lauren learns of these dangerous individuals and their plans to alter the planet, the more convinced she becomes she’s chasing the wrong story altogether.
An action thriller tour de force with an over-arching Christian theme, The Chronicles of the Mercy Giver crosses over into multiple genres, including mystery, suspense, fantasy, science-fiction, and dystopian. 


It looks like there will be enough here to keep us busy for a while. The book collection has over 900 pages and the thriller will likely be a consuming read, I’m thinking.

Happy Reading!

LPC Books has several FREE suggestions for us today, we’ve seen this one several months ago.

Meant for Me (The Carlyle Women Book 1)

Meant for Me

Amazon quote:

Meant for Me, Book 1, 1920’s
Born at Carlyle Place, the plantation her family has held for over two hundred years, Chloe Kimball was raised to be the perfect Southern lady. Still, she resists being the prize that her parents—an ambitious society maven and an equally ambitious politician—war to control. Surprising even herself, she breaks free. America has just entered the First World War and Chloe learns how to make her own way in 1917 New York City–a place nothing like home.

The Seer: The Kalila Chronicles

The Seer

Amazon quote:

Viktor has one order to follow:
Kill the girl before her eyes are opened.

For thousands of years, his job has been to torment and kill seers: humans that have the gift of seeing the spiritual realm. So it was no surprise when his brother Matthias was once again sent to stop him and protect the girl.

Now the last of the seers’ bloodline hangs in the balance, as the estranged demon and angel brothers are forced to work together to save a girl’s life and escape to the sanctuary city of Bethesda.


BookBub has a bargain suggestion for us  @$0.99. This is another book I’ve not seen before but it looks like it could be fun. I’m not entirely sure why a book would be numbered 2.5. Could be it will make sense once I’ve read them all. Interesting.

Searching for Love is a sweet, clean contemporary romance. This bundle contains all 4 books in the series.


I’m currently reading Caught by Surprise. I picked this one next because I enjoy this author. It’s still a bargain $0.99 which is a good deal.

The Duke’s Refuge (The Leeward Island Series Book 1)

The Duke's Refuge

Amazon quote:

However, on the day she’s convinced the earl will propose, Georgia is shipped off to the Leeward Islands to care for her ailing father.

In fact, in her current school, she has managed to seep beautifully into obscurity, only ever needing to worry about her bully, Reese Grant. With only a little over a month left of her senior year, she thinks she’s in the clear.

That is, until the school counselor decides Faith would be the best person to show around new student, and fellow senior, Colman Nightingale. So many things don’t make sense about this. Why would the counselor want a self-proclaimed loner to be the new kid’s introduction to not only the layout of the school, but the social aspect of it? What is this guy doing transferring so close to graduation? How does that even work?

Despite trying her darndest to put him off, Cole insists on becoming her friend. Just when Faith decides that it might not be so bad to have a friend, he goes and makes up some grand story about her being the daughter of a fae lord. Yeah right.

This whole social distancing thing surrounding the corona virus issue is turning out better than some of us thought it would. In so many ways. Checking in with some of my friends, they seem to be just as busy as they were before. It looks different these days but they’re not having to search for things to do.

Kids are a different story, it’s a little harder for them to find things to do sometimes. An active imagination helps though and I’ve noticed my grandsons have a knack for making good use of their’s. My daughter shared a picture of her boys intently playing with a small patch of ice in a snowbank on the side of their street. It wasn’t clear what scenario they were visualizing but it was working for them.

This weekend the new reality of universal self isolating impacted my normal hermit lifestyle in an unexpectedly negative way. Not that I’m complaining or anything. It’s the sudden explosion in live-streaming.  Everyone is jumping on board, singers, bloggers, church services, pretty much anyone and everyone. It took all my time just to keep up with some of the interesting new offerings out there this weekend. So much fun.

The flow of new book suggestions has been a little slow anyway so the lack of new posts is all good. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

So, back to awesome book suggestions:

1531 Entertainment has a FREE suggestion I’ve not seen before.

Relentless Love: A Father’s Pursuit

Relentless Love

Amazon quote:

Gretchen Volmer didn’t come home last night. It’s Sunday morning and her dad has heard nothing from her since she left for the concert the night before. When he learns that her best friend is also missing, and her car has been abandoned in another town, his worry turns to fear.
An Army veteran and former cop, Den Volmer gathers emotional and logistical resources for pursuing his daughter. The police think she might simply be exercising the freedom of a nineteen-year-old. Den knows his girl. Something is wrong. And now he’s in a frantic race to find the abducted girls before they’re dropped into the darkness of the underworld.


1531 Entertainment also has a bargain suggestion for us at $1.44 CDN. We had a suggestion from this author a few months ago and it was a good read. I’m looking forward to this one as well.

Looking for Justice: Christian Contemporary Romance with Suspense (Dangerous Series Book 4)

Looking for Justice

Amazon quote:

Alexis Jergenson, a former attorney, flees her painful past and unsettling law career to teach at a small Christian college. But she’s not the only one running. Luke Stephens is fleeing the effects of the Afghanistan War and a failed marriage, and the last thing he wants is another pretty woman in his life. Haunted by their pasts, they’re both seeking new lives. However, when one of their students is assaulted, they find themselves allies in a fight for her life.


Another 1531 Entertainment bargain, at $1.31 CDN this time. This is an author new to me. A time travel story catches my interest.

Vestige of Hope (Vestige in Time Book 1)

Vestige of Hope

Amazon quote:

Thrown out of his element into a time not his own, he must overcome his doubts to save the life he never knew he wanted.

Soldier, Hunter Bennet, is always in control…
…control of his missions.
…control of his life.
…control of his emotions.
Until he hesitates on an important mission, leaving a child orphaned. Chased by the demons of failure, he finds himself thrown back in time. Why has God called him here?
Viola Thomas’s idyllic life in the new state of Colorado is shattered when her father fails to return from his winter trapping trip in the Rocky Mountains and a man tumbles into her life from the future. Threats from an unwanted suitor who has pestered her for years jeopardize all she holds dear. Now she must trust a man from a world far from her own.


BookRunes also has a FREE suggestion, one that has been around before but we are happy to see again. I can even remember reading this a bunch of years ago.

All of Me: A Small Town Romance (The Bridesmaids Club Book 1)

ALL of Me

Amazon quote:

Four friends. Twenty-two bridesmaids’ dresses. One random act of kindness that will change their lives forever.

Tess has given up looking for Mr. Right, but that doesn’t mean she’s given up on love. When she reads a newspaper article about a young couple who’ve had everything stolen from their home, including four bridesmaids dresses, she knows she has to help.

But by helping the bride, Tess risks exposing a past she doesn’t want anyone to know about. She does everything she can to minimize the danger she’s in, but she does the one thing guaranteed to destroy everything – she falls in love with the wrong man.


It has been a good day. Three new books for me. Hopefully you will find something interesting here too.

Happy Reading!

Free and bargain books Davis Bunn

More to share on this quiet Sunday.

Best selling author, Davis Bunn, has a specially priced book suggestion for us (at $1.99). I’ve lost track of how many decades I’ve been reading and loving his books, or even how  many I’ve read. Not nearly enough, I can tell you that. His first book was published in 1990, according to Wikipedia, and there is a very long list of titles to his name (seventy-two if I counted correctly.) He also writes as Thomas Locke and that’s another eighteen novels .

Outbreak is on special right now and I’ve not read it, yet.


Amazon quote:

The waters off the West African coast are a menacing red, full of algae thick enough to stand on in places. In nearby villages, mysterious deaths start to occur–and the panic mounts. But before an alarm can be sounded, the sea currents shift, the algae vanishes, and the deaths stop. Everyone is relieved when things return to normal, and local government officials are happy to sweep the publicity nightmare under a rug.

An American biological researcher, Avery Madison, is dispatched by his employer to piece together exactly what happened, having long feared an ecological disaster just like this could occur. He’s had little evidence to go on before now, and what he finds in West Africa is rapidly disappearing. But Avery knows the danger hasn’t disappeared–it has just moved on.

When parts of the Caribbean start turning a familiar red right before hurricane season kicks into high gear, the implications are clear. If Avery and his colleagues can’t convince the world of what’s about to happen, toxic destruction could be loosed on American soil. Will their efforts prove too late?


If you are interested in trying one of his Thomas Locke stories there is a FREE title to be had today. I’ve read and enjoyed this one, back in 2016.

Double Edge (Fault Lines): A Fault Lines Story

Double Edge

Amazon quote:

Reese Clawson’s work is mind-bending–literally. Her company specializes in global data analysis for an elite group of industry executives, and now a lucrative government contract is moving her into the realm of cutting-edge intelligence gathering. She is determined to crack the limits of consciousness–and in doing so, the boundaries of secrets and lies. But her experiment crashes as test subjects slide into a coma-like state. Reese is left scrambling to maintain control, drawing three disparate people into the search for answers–an adrenaline-amped thrill junkie with altered brain chemistry, an Italian scientist working on remote-viewing technology, and a math prodigy whose algorithms subvert computer encryption.


Also FREE is an excerpt to introduce us to the Legends of the Realm series. I’ve downloaded this book in 2016. Previously, in 2015, I downloaded and read the first book in the series, Emissary, and I recall loving it. The introductory book, The Captive, is 400 pages so it is not short and I’m a little confused as to what exactly it does contain.  I’ve not read it but guess I should if I want to understand. It’s back on my TBR list.

The Captive (Ebook Shorts) (Legends of the Realm): A Legends of the Realm Story


Amazon quote:

The only remnant of Joelle’s former life is her name.
The only hint of her future is a foreboding vision of darkness.
And her only hope is a man she has yet to meet.

One of the last of a disappearing race, Joelle spends her days as a prisoner of the Long Hall, sweeping corridors and dusting scrolls while young wizards learn to ply their trade. In the dark of night, she practices the magical arts that are forbidden to one of her kind, hoping to soon break the spell that holds her captive.

But an evil is growing beyond the enchanted stone walls. Joelle will need much more than her own skills to escape it. Someone is coming for her. And when he arrives, he will change everything.

This short ebook excerpted from Emissary gives you a magical glimpse into the Realm–and the heroes who will stop at nothing to save it.


Emissary (Legends of the Realm Book #1) is not a bargain but you can see what it looks like. Maybe you will want to read it anyway.


Amazon quote:

Hyam is a likeable lad who will make a fine farmer someday. But he carries a burden few can fathom. As his mother slips toward death, she implores him to return to Long Hall, where he spent five years as an apprentice. It was there that Hyam’s extraordinary capacity for mastering languages came to light–and soon cast him into the shadows of suspicion. How could any human learn the forbidden tongues with such ease? When Hyam dares to seek out the Mistress of the Sorceries, her revelation tears his world asunder.

He has no choice but to set out on the foreboding path–which beckons him to either his destiny or his doom. An encounter with an enchanting stranger reminds him that he is part hero and part captive. As Hyam struggles to interpret the omens and symbols, he is swept up by a great current of possibilities–and dangers.

I am a fan of fantasy and this was a favorite when I read it five years ago.


If you’ve not met Davis Bunn yet I think you will enjoy him, just like so many others do.

Happy Reading!

Bargain books February 22, 2020

BookBub has a bargain suggestion for us today at $0.99. This book showed up for us last summer and I can remember really liking it.

The Red Door Inn (Prince Edward Island Dreams Book #1)

The Red Door Inn

Amazon quote:

Marie Carrington is running from a host of bad memories. Broke and desperate, she’s hoping to find safety and sanctuary on Prince Edward Island, where she reluctantly agrees to help decorate a renovated bed-and-breakfast before it opens for prime tourist season.

Seth Sloane didn’t move three thousand miles to work on his uncle’s B&B so he could babysit a woman with a taste for expensive antiques and a bewildering habit of jumping every time he brushes past her. He came to help restore the old Victorian–and to forget about the fiancĂ©e who broke his heart.
The only thing Marie and Seth agree on is that getting the Red Door Inn ready to open in just two months will take everything they’ve got. Can these two wounded souls find hope, healing, and perhaps a bit of romance on this beautiful island?


The Vacant House (Sophie O’Brion Mysteries Book 1) is still a bargain at $0.99. I liked this one a lot too.

The Vacant House

Amazon quote:

She knows she didn’t do it, but everybody thinks she did.

It all begins when best-selling author Sophie O’Brion is the last person to see a murder victim alive. She looks even more guilty when a woman from her church is beaten, and Sophie was seen with her just hours before. Suddenly, people she has known her entire life begin pointing accusing fingers at her.

Marine Master Sergeant Burke Maguire, an old flame who dumped Sophie years ago, has recently been hired as a police officer in Forman Falls, Texas, and is assigned her case. She doesn’t want his help.


I’m excited to see Angela Hunt has a bargain book out right now. She has been one of my favorite authors for decades. $0.99 is a really good deal for one of her books. There are other similar books in this series and I can’t recall if I’ve read any of them. I don’t think so – though I’ve read similar books. I’m looking forward to this.

Egypt’s Sister (The Silent Years Book #1): A Novel of Cleopatra

Egypt's Sister

Amazon quote:

Five decades before the birth of Christ, Chava, daughter of the royal tutor, grows up with Urbi, a princess in Alexandria’s royal palace. When Urbi becomes Queen Cleopatra, Chava vows to be a faithful friend no matter what–but after she and Cleopatra have an argument, she finds herself imprisoned and sold into slavery.

Torn from her family, her community, and her elevated place in Alexandrian society, Chava finds herself cast off and alone in Rome. Forced to learn difficult lessons, she struggles to trust a promise HaShem has given her. After experiencing the best and worst of Roman society, Chava must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God’s will for her life.


I found another bargain book, by an author unknown to me. I’ve read similar books to this one, but they were definitely not the same. I can’t make a recommendation at this point but I do plan to read it to see if I like it as well as I liked the others. This would fall in the Metaphysical Fiction category.

Adam’s Reign (The Hidden Kingdom Book 1) $0.99

Adam's Reign

Amazon quote:

Take a leap of faith into a world unlike any you have ever known, one where mankind still remembers its foundations and all the earth is clothed in perpetual springtime. Here, angels and demons wage war for the souls of mankind, and man lives for hundreds of years, forever growing either in righteousness or in evil. In these days, there are few who acknowledge where they have come from, few who keep hold of the one true God who wrought the world. For those who do, the blinders are ripped off and they see the truth: a world at war. Tucked just behind the veil of sense experience, battles rage and captives are taken as kingdoms collide and man is caught in the middle, a part of the struggle but unaware of his role.


The last two books will not be quick reads. I think it will be a deep and thought provoking experience, for both of them.

It’s always a good day when we find reads that break away from the usual. Today is a good day.

Happy Reading!

Alice’s Journey West Finding Her Way

Finding Her Way

Amazon quote:

The American Civil war has torn Alice Cleary’s family apart, and cast the children amongst what friends and relations would have them. And though Alice appreciates the home she and her younger brother, Will, have had with her aunt and uncle, when they pressure her to marry an older man for their benefit, she flees to the sanctuary of the church. There, sister Agnes helps to set Alice’s feet on a path that will lead her across the country. In Kansas, Will finds a place on their sister Louisa’s farm, but times are hard and as much as she craves the security of her own people, there is no place for Alice. Her journey lies onward, in the wilds of New Mexico.

After navigating risk and peril, Alice comes into her own. She knows her own mind – and her own heart. But when it is broken, will Alice have the strength and courage to remain true to herself?


BookBub also has a FREE suggestion. This is book one in a series. It was offered awhile back in a three book collection, I remember reading it then and liking it. A good read.

On His Bended Knee: The Brides of Purple Heart Ranch book 1

On His Bended Knee

Amazon quote:

Sgt. Dylan Banks lost more than just his leg in the war. His fiancée and family turned their backs on him as well. Now, he’s determined to create a safe place where wounded warriors like himself can heal. But a hidden zoning law requires all residents of the Purple Heart Ranch to be married. To save his dream, Dylan and his men will have to tie the knot—but can a man with such deep scars inside and out believe in love again?

Maggie Shaw lost both her job as a veterinary technician and her apartment on the same day. Who knew her unreasonable landlord would kick her out for being four dogs over the one pet limit? Now, she and her gang of special-needs dogs are in trouble. Fate puts her in Dylan’s path with a proposal that seems too good to be true—but can her heart bear a loveless marriage of convenience?
Dylan yearns to reach out for Maggie’s healing touch, but he keeps his distance, convinced his wounds are too deep for her embrace. Maggie sees past Dylan’s injuries, but if she fails to capture his heart they both could lose it all: her beloved animals, his ranch, and each other.


Happy Reading

Book collections at bargain prices, good reads – all of them

Some of my read and enjoyed collections are still at bargain prices. An all seasons assortment with a little Christmas thrown in for good measure.
