Free E-Books: 20.11.21

This is a weekly post that I am going to post a bit about the books I have sourced for free. Quite a few finds again this week 😊

I usually find out about these E-Books through social media, through emails I receive from Hello Books and authors newsletters.

In this weekly post, I would like to mention the books I have found and downloaded, so that others may have a chance to be introduced to new authors and the books are promoted before I get a around to reading them.

Hello Books – Amazon:

These books were sourced through emails I received by Hello Books and were purchased for free on Amazon. There are a number of genres to choose through this email service, and I pick the ones which sound like the type of books I would like to read. Please note these were free at the time of this posting on 20.11.21 and in the UK region.

Alone With You – Lisa Ann Verge

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Jenny believed the remote cabin she rented was hers alone—until she stepped out of the shower to find a brawny man in her bedroom. No way was she taking on a roommate, especially a six-foot stud with a slow-fuse grin. Yet the brooding Logan had his charms, and his secrets. They’d be stuck together for only two weeks. Not long enough for him to seduce her…or melt her frozen heart.

Rating on Goodreads: 3.90

Once Wicked – Cindy Stark

Genre: Cozy Mystery

Synopsis from Goodreads:

A witch in hiding. An innocent spell. Let the mayhem begin. Hazel Hardy knows she shouldn’t tempt fate, but she’s desperate and…hello, cheap real estate. Her family’s fears don’t stop her from opening a teashop in the quaint New England village where the townsfolk once drowned her ancestor for being a witch. Unfortunately, times haven’t changed…much, anyway.

No worries. She swears she won’t stir up trouble…in a cauldron or otherwise. But then her customer’s husband turns up dead. Whispers of “murderous witch” point toward a seemingly innocent girl, and Hazel can’t resist poking her nose where it doesn’t belong.

Real trouble shows up when she meets the charming police chief, who doesn’t like witches and who doesn’t hide his attraction to her. Worse, she’s brewing a crush on him, too, and she finds she adores searching for clues to help him solve the case. She convinces herself she’ll be fine as long as they find the murderer before she accidently uses magic again or before he notices the crazy cat from her grandmother’s haunted house that’s stalking her.

No Refuge – Nicola Clifford

Genre: Mystery/Thriller

Synopsis from Amazon:

Having little to report on other than the upcoming flower festival and rumours of a royal visit to her small town, Mid Wales journalist Stacey Logan suddenly has her hands full when a local man and his dog are shot dead.

Seeing as her boyfriend Ben James is a detective in the local force, Stacey gets a closer view of the action than most. Despite their proximity to an army firing range, an accidental death is quickly ruled out.

But Stacey’s chances of a scoop are dashed when, following another shooting in the Llandovery area, important elements of the case are leaked to the national press.

With Stacey’s editor putting on the pressure, she decides to do a little more investigating of her own. But given the concerns about the royal visit, suspicions about a mole in the force, and with Scotland Yard now involved, she will have to tread carefully.

Will trying to find the identity of the shooter upset Stacey’s relationship with her boyfriend before the police make an arrest? Or when she believes they have the wrong man, will her sleuthing have a far more dangerous outcome?

The hospital abruptly closed in 1958 under a cloud of mystery. It has remained empty and silent, save for the memories trapped both within its walls and far below the surface of the nearby lake that bears its name. At the bottom of Asylum Lake, the unremembered are growing restless. Brady Tanner is trying to outrun memories of his own. After the sudden death of his wife, Brady retreats to the small town where he spent the summers of his youth. But he soon learns small towns can be stained by memories… and secrets, too. As Brady is drawn into unearthing these secrets, as he discovers a new love in an old friend, he is also drawn into the mystery of Asylum Lake and the evil that lies submerged beneath its sparkling surface. What is the source of this evil – and what does it want with Brady Tanner?
