If you’ve been thinking about trying Julia Spencer-Fleming’s highly lauded series in the Rev. Clare Fergusson/Russ Van Alstyne mystery series (known in my brain as Rev. Kickypants and Detective Angsty Thundershorts), which, in June, reaches book #6, here’s your chance.
In a move that is rather awesome in its simple brilliance, Macmillan is offering the first two books of the series from today until 12 June for free. Yes! Free! So if you’ve wanted to start the series and the prospect of buying six books and reading through is a little financially daunting, the publisher made it very sweet and easy to get hooked on Rev. Kickypants.
My understanding is that Kickypants and Thundershorts have some hot growing and sustained attraction, you know, in addition to that whole solving crime thing. However, I haven’t read the series, so I’m going on what other folks have said.
Signing up (which probably adds you to their mailing list) yields PDFs of the two books but if you’re like me and you’ve already filled your pitcher with the Kindle-Aid, you can download In the Bleak Midwinter and A Fountain Filled with Blood Kindle editions for the lovely price of $0.00.
