  • Into the Drowning Deep

    Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant

    RECOMMENDED: Into the Drowning Deep by Mira Grant is $2.99! This is a Kindle Daily Deal and it’s being price-matched. Elyse & I really enjoyed this horror/sci-fi novel. We jointly reviewed the book and ultimately decided on a B. We loved the cast of characters, but found the ending anticlimactic.

    New York Times bestselling author Mira Grant, author of the renowned Newsflesh series, returns with a novel that takes us to a new world of ancient mysteries and mythological dangers come to life. 

    Seven years ago, the Atargatis set off on a voyage to the Mariana Trench to film a “mockumentary” bringing to life ancient sea creatures of legend. It was lost at sea with all hands. Some have called it a hoax; others have called it a maritime tragedy.

    Now, a new crew has been assembled. But this time they’re not out to entertain. Some seek to validate their life’s work. Some seek the greatest hunt of all. Some seek the truth. But for the ambitious young scientist Victoria Stewart this is a voyage to uncover the fate of the sister she lost.

    Whatever the truth may be, it will only be found below the waves.

    But the secrets of the deep come with a price.

  • The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper

    The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick

    RECOMMENDEDThe Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick is $1.99! Sarah enjoyed the emotional journey of this book and gave it a B in a Lightning Review:

    In the end, his realization that his life mattered, that he was loved, and that he had more to give the world before he died, too, was terribly poignant and made me sniffle for quite awhile after I closed the book.

    Sixty-nine-year-old Arthur Pepper lives a simple life. He gets out of bed at precisely 7:30 a.m., just as he did when his wife, Miriam, was alive. He dresses in the same gray slacks and mustard sweater vest, waters his fern, Frederica, and heads out to his garden.

    But on the one-year anniversary of Miriam’s death, something changes. Sorting through Miriam’s possessions, Arthur finds an exquisite gold charm bracelet he’s never seen before. What follows is a surprising and unforgettable odyssey that takes Arthur from London to Paris and as far as India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife’s secret life before they met—a journey that leads him to find hope, healing and self-discovery in the most unexpected places.

    Featuring an unforgettable cast of characters with big hearts and irresistible flaws, The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper is a joyous celebration of life’s infinite possibilities.

  • The Last Mile

    The Last Mile by Kat Martin

    The Last Mile by Kat Martin is $1.99! This is book two in Blood Ties: The Logans romantic suspense series. I feel like Martin’s romantic suspenses often feature wilderness environments if that is or isn’t your bag.

    The New York Times bestselling author pairs a woman in search of her family’s truth with a hard-hitting professional treasure hunter in this taut and thrilling new book. As an unknown assailant stalks them across the treacherous Superstition Mountains in Arizona, they race to follow their treasure map’s directions to a hidden trove of gold, but will they survive the danger long enough to reach their prize?

    When Abigail Holland awakes to the sound of a nighttime intruder in her rambling Denver Victorian, she knows exactly what the black shrouded figure is after—the map she recently inherited from her grandfather. Whoever he is, the man who grapples with her, then escapes, is willing to kill for the location of a treasure King Farrell hunted for more than ten years. The Devil’s Gold has claimed hundreds of lives, and it was her grandfather’s obsession.

    With a killer pursuing her and her own family not to be trusted, Abby decides to take up the search herself. But she’ll need help to do it, and there’s no one better than renowned explorer and treasure hunter Gage Logan. Despite the instant chemistry between them, Gage is reluctant. Innocent people have been hurt on his watch before. But when Abby shows him a genuine gold ingot she found with the map, his curiosity is piqued. Before long they’re heading into the flash floods and brutal winds of the Superstition Mountains, straight into a passionate entanglement—and the dark heart of danger.

  • My Wicked Prince

    My Wicked Prince by Molly O'Keefe

    My Wicked Prince by Molly O’Keefe is FREE! O’Keefe tends to be an auto-buy author for me, but one of my biggest peeves is book descriptions written in first person. For me, they tell me absolutely nothing and I’m less likely to pick it up. Have you read this one?

    He was my stepbrother.
    My Prince Charming.
    My fairy tale gone totally wrong…

    My mother marrying the king was supposed to give my mom and I our happily ever after. But my life has never been a bedtime story and no prince with a fancy shoe is turning me into a Cinderella.

    I had big plans outside of my small but powerful country. But Gunnar, the wicked prince in a gorgeous package, was temptation too strong for me to resist. His sweet lies and sweeter kisses pulled me back into his arms over and over again until his cold cruel heart finally broke mine for good.

    But now he’s going to be King and he wants me back in his country, his palace…and his bed.

    And we all must bow to the King.

    Oh I hate hate hate first person blurbs and do not purchase those anymore. I guess they work since they keep doing them but it drives me nuts.

  2. Ksquared says:

    First person blurbs aren’t a complete dealbreaker for me, but I do find them incredibly cheesy and melodramatic. A lot of them read like bad Wattpad descriptions.

  3. Nancy says:

    My Wicked Prince was free on iBooks in Canada but not on Amazon

  4. Lynn S says:

    I was wondering what readers here think of Kat Martin. I have seen her books on sale lately and at the library. But I haven’t heard anything about her, positive or negative. If anyone has read her books, what are your thoughts on them. Thanks!

  5. Liza S says:

    And then I’ve seen other readers complain that if the book description is in third person but the book itself is in first, they feel betrayed and they’re angry that the author misled them! I wish everyone would just write the descriptions in third, and readers who have strong opinions about reading third but not first or vice versa will preview the first chapter, as has been done from the beginning of time. /rant

  6. Kareni says:

    I found The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper to be a generally charming (!) read.

  7. Dawn Roberto says:

    I am finding Kat Martin to be boring to me. It feels like the same kind of books over and over again from her. I do wish Mira Grant continued her Into the Drowning Deep with another novella or something. I really enjoyed the books.

  8. Empress of Blandings says:

    This isn’t the worst first-person blurb I’ve ever seen. At least it gives a sense of what the book is about (and Molly O’Keefe writes good, entertaining books with a bit of bite about them. I’m working my way through this one now and enjoying it).

    The blurbs I really dislike are the ones where the H and h alternate.
    In truncated sentences.
    That give only the barest idea.
    Of the plot.
    And the vaguest possible nod. To the conflict.
    It’s like reading an extended promotional haiku sometimes.

  9. Hannah Bloom says:

    THE GHOST AND MR. MOORE by Wendy Dalrymple is 99 cents. It’s a gothic romance novella set in Florida; Carrie gave it a B+.

  10. LML says:

    I am in complete agreement with @Ksquared and @Empress of Blandings and add that any blurb which includes a phrase similar to: “We must all bow to the King” will have my eyes rolling with such velocity I won’t be able to read.

  11. DiscoDollyDeb says:

    MY WICKED PRINCE is a good book, solid & angsty, with some excellent world-building. The h&h became steps siblings when they were both older, if “step-relative” is a questionable trope for you. Also, the hero reminded me a lot of one of Caitlin Crews’s dissolute-in-public-but-secretly-plotting-behind-the-scenes prince heroes. And please don’t blame O’Keefe for the blurb–authors rarely write their own, but the book is narrated in alternating first-person.

  12. Big K says:

    Killers of A Certain Age by Deanna Raybourne came out today, and I just finished it. It was EXCELLENT. Exactly what I hoped and what it said on the tin. Highly recommend!

  13. Maria Knops says:

    I am one of those readers who feel betrayed when a blurb is in third person and the book in first. I never buy from that author again (and usually DNF quickly). There are always reviews out where those who want to know what the book is about can read them (NetGalley on Goodreads, for example). But there are not always indications whether a book is in first-person or not. Why should I have to read/listen to a sample, and you who want a third-person blurb not read a review?

  14. Maria Knops says:

    Thank you @DiscoDollyDeb. Knowing MY WICKED PRINCE has more than one POV makes it more appealing for me.

  15. Lisa L says:

    Thanks for the update on Killers of a Certain Age @Big K! I was already excited about it and I’m just waiting on my library hold 🙂

  16. Ely says:

    I loved Into the Drowning Deep, but would go much further than “the ending was anticlimactic”. It wasn’t even a cliffhanger. It just trailed off. I actually went searching to see if my kindle file was corrupt and missing the last few chapters. I guess there was an expectation of a sequel, but I think it’s unlikely to ever happen.

    Having said that, I *loved* the exploration of language and communication that was a significant plot element of a well written horror story.

  17. Ele says:

    I picked up My Wicked Prince (free, why not?) even though modern royalty is down there with motorcycle club and barely above sadistic billionaire on my what-not-to-read lists. The pluses–strong, smart, not-dainty heroine, as well as considerable time spent on development of a relationship other than simply a sexual one. The minus–royalty, meh.
