Free E-Books: 24.09.22

This is my weekly post of Free E-Books I have found throughout the 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 24.09.22 and in the UK region.

Serial Dater – K.T. Jayne

Genre: Psychological Thriller

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Who can you trust if you can’t trust yourself?

When Scott McCabe’s wife dies tragically he almost loses his mind. And his son. Three years later he’s a struggling lone parent to six-year-old Jae, who longs for a new Mummy. So reluctantly, Scott lets his best friend talk him into online dating.

And from the minute he publishes his profile, Scott has made his Date with Fate.

Underneath his casual exterior Scott is a man with a tormented conscience, a potholed memory and a vivid imagination. Is he plagued by guilt about Sally’s death, or is it something that runs much deeper? Scott doesn’t know, any more than he knows what he does when he loses time. And Scott loses a lot of time.

When the girls he dates disappear one-by-one, he begins to doubt his sanity. And as police suspicion falls to him, he doesn’t know who he can trust.

Least of all himself.

Meet old man Wilson. Viciously murdered by his children for his money, his spirit is left behind. Outside, in the deserted cornfield, a lonely scarecrow dwells in the wind, and is used as a perch for the black birds. But with a closer look, it isn’t a scarecrow at all.

The birds flock to it like a moth to a flame, one by one pecking at the loose, decayed flesh hanging on the meat hook.

People who visit the old farmhouse begin to disappear, one by one with no explanation…spray painted in red paint –the sign into the town of Scarecrow Hollow reads:

Warning:
Don’t go into Scarecrow Hollow if you want to live…
That’s not what the Winter children had in mind while on their way to visit their favorite farm with their father, where things tend to go bump in the night. It will take the three siblings, Lance, Gwen and Merle to solve the mystery, in this middle grade thriller. Readers beware…you’re in for a scare!

To Pieces – Kati Rocky

Source: Book Cave Email Newsletter – Amazon Purchase

Genre: YA

Synopsis from Goodreads:

To friends and family Jane seemed like a normal teen… until one day she didn’t…

Jane (aka Plain Jane) has always known she was different inside, and not in a good way. This has driven her to her construct her life as a solid B, for average, person and to carefully follow the rules of her high school hierarchy. But, when she undergoes her first bipolar episode and becomes acutely manic, she thumbs her nose at that hierarchy and begins a campaign to revolutionize her high school and rise up against its stifling social norms – and shake up the school she does. She becomes the most talked about student and no longer cares what anyone thinks of her as her over-the-top, comedic antics play out in public. Her mission culminates with an outrageous school presidential election speech and subsequent hospitalization.

Once Jane has come down from the mania and is released from the psychiatric hospital, she is humiliated by what she’s done and descends into suicidal depression. Now she’ll never fit in again. She’ll forever be known as the giant freak she’s always believed she was. And she’s ruined a burgeoning romance with the biggest crush she’s ever had. Making matters worse, she also discovers a devastating and dark family secret that her absent, indifferent mother has been harboring.

Jane crawls her way back from the ledge and begins the healing process, but she won’t return to school, where she’s certain she’ll be the biggest outcast ever. But, a chance encounter with a former schoolmate leads her to reassess that decision – and her whole life.

Is she truly all that different from “normal” teenagers? Did her campaign actually change her high school? Did she change
lives? Is her mother the unloving narcissist she’d always believed she was?

More Than Friends – Kathryn Cantrell

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis from Goodreads:

They promise each other they won’t let it get weird. But they do. And it does…

Nomi Hannon is sick of losing. First, she failed to get her brother off on fraud charges. Then, she lost the practice they built together. She’s not about to lose the city council election. Too bad she just accidentally starred in a compromising photo that her squeaky-clean opponent is all too willing to use against her. Surely marrying the guy in the photo—her best friend, the only stable force in her life—will solve the problem…right?

Malone DuMar’s luck hasn’t been any better than Nomi’s. He’s not looking for a wife, not after his ex-fiancée stole his company. But Nomi has always been the one person he could count on. There’s no way he’s going to turn his back on her when she needs him the most.

It’s a simple plan. Only pretend. That’s what they told themselves, anyway. But that was before they realized their friendship was on the line if their marriage of convenience went south. Before the kiss that changed everything…

I hope you find something that takes your fancy 😊

I only download books that I like the look of the synopsis, and once I have cleared down some of the NetGalley books I am going to be adding 1 or 2 of my E-Books to my TBR each month.
