Amber Beach by Elizabeth Lowell is $2.99 right now. This is one of Lowell's romantic suspense novels, originally published in 1997. It's the first in the Donovan series, which continues with Jade Island, Pearl Cove, and Midnight in Ruby Bayou.
Deadly secrets are buried on Amber Beach …
Donovan International is a power to be reckoned with in the dazzling and cutthroat worldwide gem trade — and is therefore a target for the murderous greed of unscrupulous competitors. Though a shrewd businesswoman, Honor Donovan has been effectively shut out of the dangerous family enterprise by the Donovan males — until her favorite brother, Kyle, mysteriously vanishes along with a fortune in stolen amber.
Now, linking up with “fishing guide” Jake Mallory — whose previous association with the Donovans has bred mistrust and suspicion — Honor sets out for the Pacific Northwest in search of answers. But old wars and new politics have lured ruthless, high-stakes players from around the globe into a deadly game. And suddenly, elusive trust can be the only salvation — and death the penalty for deceit — if Honor and Jake hope to survive the perilous intrigues surrounding a breathtaking lost Czarist treasure known as the Amber Room …
Dead Ever After, the final book in the Sookie Stackhouse series, is the Audible deal of the day. The unabridged performance by Johanna Parker runs 10 hours, 11 minutes, and is on sale today only for $4.95.
This is something of a controversial book: readers hated the ending, and reviews at Amazon, GoodReads, Audible and elsewhere bemoan the ending of the series, how much they disliked the book, and how disappointed they were with the story. Others (who weren't hoping for an ending with a particular character, perhaps) liked the ending and were very satisfied. Either way, unabridged for $5 is not bad.
There are secrets in the town of Bon Temps, ones that threaten those closest to Sookie—and could destroy her heart…
Sookie Stackhouse finds it easy to turn down the request of former barmaid Arlene when she wants her job back at Merlotte’s. After all, Arlene tried to have Sookie killed. But her relationship with Eric Northman is not so clearcut. He and his vampires are keeping their distance…and a cold silence. And when Sookie learns the reason why, she is devastated.
Then a shocking murder rocks Bon Temps, and Sookie is arrested for the crime.
But the evidence against Sookie is weak, and she makes bail. Investigating the killing, she’ll learn that what passes for truth in Bon Temps is only a convenient lie. What passes for justice is more spilled blood. And what passes for love is never enough…
