Festive in Death is available for digital pre-order for a whopping $5.42 at Amazon and BN right now. Not sure what those price fairies were drinking over the weekend, but cheers to them. Festive in Death is the 39th book – yes 39 – in the In Death series, a futuristic romantic suspense series focused on Eve Dallas and Roarke, along with assorted sidekicks and recurring characters.
This is a much-loved series, and this book already has a 4+ star average on GR, though I am not sure how many have actually read the book and how many are using the stars to measure their anticipation.
Either way, $5.42 for a preorder of a book that will be released in hardcover on September 9 is Kick Ass.
Personal trainer Trey Ziegler was in peak physical condition. If you didn’t count the kitchen knife in his well-toned chest.
Lieutenant Eve Dallas soon discovers a lineup of women who’d been loved and left by the narcissistic gym rat. While Dallas sorts through the list of Ziegler’s enemies, she’s also dealing with her Christmas shopping list—plus the guest list for her and her billionaire husband’s upcoming holiday bash.
Feeling less than festive, Dallas tries to put aside her distaste for the victim and solve the mystery of his death. There are just a few investigating days left before Christmas, and as New Year’s 2061 approaches, this homicide cop is resolved to stop a cold-blooded killer.
Shadow of Night is $4.99 right now at Amazon and BN. This is book 2 in the All Souls trilogy, which started with A Discovery of Witches – a book that ended on a cliffhanger (yuck). The first book is about $7.00, but with the sale on book two, you can get both for about $12. The third in the trilogy, The Book of Life, comes out July 2014.
J. K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Anne Rice—only a few writers capture the imagination the way that Deborah Harkness has done with books one and two of her New York Times–bestselling All Souls trilogy. A Discovery of Witches introduced reluctant witch Diana Bishop, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont, and the battle for a lost, enchanted manuscript known as Ashmole 782.
Harkness’s much-anticipated sequel, Shadow of Night, picks up from A Discovery of Witches’ cliffhanger ending. Diana and Matthew time-travel to Elizabethan London and are plunged into a world of spies, magic, and a coterie of Matthew’s old friends, the School of Night.
As the search for Ashmole 782 deepens and Diana searches for a witch to tutor her in magic, the net of Matthew’s past tightens around them, and they embark on a very different—and vastly more dangerous—journey.
Dead Man's Deal by Jocelynn Drake is $1.99 all over the place – retailer-wise. This is urban fantasy – you can sort of tell by the back muscles and the tattoo and the fact that shirts appear to be optional in this world.
This is book 2 of Drake's Asylum Tales series set in a tattoo parlor. Angel's Ink has been on sale before as well, so you might already own it.
Dead Man's Deal by Jocelynn Drake continues the dark and dangerous adventures of a magical tattoo artist begun in Angel's Ink.
In a gritty urban fantasy world where elves, faeries, trolls, werewolves, and vampires swim free in a sea of humanity, sometimes you need an edge. Looking for a little love? Need some luck? Desperate for revenge? Gage can give you what you need. The most talented tattoo artist in town, he knows the right symbol and the right mix of ingredients and ink to achieve your heart's desire. One tattoo is all it takes. But remember, everything has its price.
The wizards know Gage is using forbidden magic, and they intend to punish him for his transgressions. Too bad if innocent humans and monsters—entire cities—get in the way.
They will quell a nascent magical uprising and Gage will be the sacrifice they need. First, though, they have to find him.
RECOMMENDED OMGFORREALS: Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream and Dessert Book is $2.99 digitally. Hubby and I own this in paperback, and it is one of our most treasured and most used cookbooks. In fact, he made ice cream with the dudes this weekend. Here. Have a look:
Mint chocolate chip! Homemade ice cream is really something – it's softer but has a lot more flavor, and it's so freaking good. We love this cookbook, and $3 is a terrific price for it. You do need an ice cream maker to make ice cream (obviously) but if you're curious about making ice cream, we adore this cookbook.
With little skill, surprisingly few ingredients, and even the most unsophisticated of ice-cream makers, you can make the scrumptious ice creams that have made Ben & Jerry's an American legend.
Ben & Jerry's Homemade Ice Cream & Dessert Book tells fans the story behind the company and the two men who built it-from their first meeting in 7th-grade gym class (they were already the two widest kids on the field) to their “graduation” from a $5.00 ice-cream-making correspondence course to their first ice-cream shop in a renovated gas station.
But the best part comes next. Dastardly Mash, featuring nuts, raisins, and hunks of chocolate. The celebrated Heath Bar Crunch. New York Super Fudge Chunk. Oreo Mint. In addition to Ben & Jerry's 11 greatest hits, here are recipes for ice creams made with fresh fruit, with chocolate, with candies and cookies, and recipes for sorbets, sundaes, and baked goods.
