The Escape Diaries by Juliet Rosetti is .99c right now. The heroine escapes prison after a tornado and tries to find who really killed her husband, because despite her conviction, she knows she didn't do it. This book is, according to Beth on GR, as if the Stephanie Plum books and The Fugitive had a baby: mayhem, mystery, and comedy. Have you read this? It sounds alarmingly like my catnip;
Wrongly convicted of killing her philandering husband, Mazie Maguire is three years into her life sentence when fate intervenes—in the form of a tornado. Just like that, she’s on the other side of the fence, running through swamps and cornfields, big box stores and suburban subdivisions.
Hoping to find out who really murdered her husband, Mazie must stay a few steps ahead of both the law and her mother-in-law, who would like nothing better than to personally administer Mazie the death penalty via lethal snickerdoodle.
With the Feds in hot pursuit and the national media hyping her story, Mazie stumbles upon a vast political conspiracy and a man who might just be worth a conjugal visit—if she survives.
Enchanted, Inc by Shanna Swendson is $3.99. This book was recommended to me by Asperity, who said:
I love that book so hard and go back to it as a comfort read. Light-hearted, cheerful contemporary fantasy with a great romance subplot. I think at least some of the subsequent books in the series are also discounted right now.
Katie Chandler had always heard that New York is a weird and wonderful place, but this small-town Texas gal had no idea how weird until she moved there.
Everywhere she goes, she sees something worth gawking at and Katie is afraid she's a little too normal to make a splash in the big city. Working for an ogre of a boss doesn't help.
RECOMMENDED: How to Flirt With a Naked Werewolf by Molly Harper is a Kindle Daily Deal today at $1.99. So far there isn't price matching but I have my fingers crossed. I really like Harper's writing, and this book is about a young woman who moves to Alaska and finds out the hot guy she noticed in the bar is possibly a werewolf. If you like comedy, small town contemporaries and some silly paranormal, you'll like this. (I love paranormal romance that doesn't take itself too seriously).
Even in Grundy, Alaska, it’s unusual to find a naked guy with a bear trap clamped to his ankle on your porch. But when said guy turns into a wolf, recent southern transplant Mo Wenstein has no difficulty identifying the problem.
Her surly neighbor Cooper Graham—who has been openly critical of Mo’s ability to adapt to life in Alaska—has trouble of his own. Werewolf trouble.
For Cooper, an Alpha in self-imposed exile from his dysfunctional pack, it’s love at first sniff when it comes to Mo. But Cooper has an even more pressing concern on his mind. Several people around Grundy have been the victims of wolf attacks, and since Cooper has no memory of what he gets up to while in werewolf form, he’s worried that he might be the violent canine in question.
If a wolf cries wolf, it makes sense to listen, yet Mo is convinced that Cooper is not the culprit. Except if he’s not responsible, then who is? And when a werewolf falls head over haunches in love with you, what are you supposed to do anyway? The rules of dating just got a whole lot more complicated. . . .
RECOMMENDED: The Rosie Project is $1.99 at Amazon again. I loved this book, and in my A review I talked about how it made me laugh and sigh and was just so completely enjoyable. I have recommended this book to so many people, all of whom loved it. I hope, if you're curious, you'll grab a copy at the $2 price! I know many of you have – and you've emailed me to say how much you liked it (yay!).
MEET DON TILLMAN, a brilliant yet socially challenged professor of genetics, who’s decided it’s time he found a wife. And so, in the orderly, evidence-based manner with which Don approaches all things, he designs the Wife Project to find his perfect partner: a sixteen-page, scientifically valid survey to filter out the drinkers, the smokers, the late arrivers.
Rosie Jarman is all these things. She also is strangely beguiling, fiery, and intelligent. And while Don quickly disqualifies her as a candidate for the Wife Project, as a DNA expert Don is particularly suited to help Rosie on her own quest: identifying her biological father. When an unlikely relationship develops as they collaborate on the Father Project, Don is forced to confront the spontaneous whirlwind that is Rosie—and the realization that, despite your best scientific efforts, you don’t find love, it finds you.
Arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, Graeme Simsion’s distinctive debut will resonate with anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of great challenges. The Rosie Project is a rare find: a book that restores our optimism in the power of human connection.
