    Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen

    RECOMMENDED: The Sugar Queen by Sarah Addison Allen is $2.99! I’ve talked about my love for Sarah Addison Allen before. Her books are literary fiction with magical realism and they’re such perfect comfort reads. I like Garden Spells (her debut) better, but this was still a good read.

    In this irresistible follow-up to her New York Times bestselling debut, Garden Spells, author Sarah Addison Allen tells the tale of a young woman whose family secrets—and secret passions—are about to change her life forever.

    Twenty-seven-year-old Josey Cirrini is sure of three things: winter in her North Carolina hometown is her favorite season, she’s a sorry excuse for a Southern belle, and sweets are best eaten in the privacy of her hidden closet. For while Josey has settled into an uneventful life in her mother’s house, her one consolation is the stockpile of sugary treats and paperback romances she escapes to each night…. Until she finds it harboring none other than local waitress Della Lee Baker, a tough-talking, tenderhearted woman who is one part nemesis—and two parts fairy godmother…

    Fleeing a life of bad luck and big mistakes, Della Lee has decided Josey’s clandestine closet is the safest place to crash. In return she’s going to change Josey’s life—because, clearly, it is not the closet of a happy woman. With Della Lee’s tough love, Josey is soon forgoing pecan rolls and caramels, tapping into her startlingly keen feminine instincts, and finding her narrow existence quickly expanding.

    Before long, Josey bonds with Chloe Finley, a young woman who makes the best sandwiches in town, is hounded by books that inexplicably appear whenever she needs them, and—most amazing of all—has a close connection to Josey’s longtime crush.

    As little by little Josey dares to step outside herself, she discovers a world where the color red has astonishing power, passion can make eggs fry in their cartons, and romance can blossom at any time—even for her. It seems that Della Lee’s work is done, and it’s time for her to move on. But the truth about where she’s going, why she showed up in the first place—and what Chloe has to do with it all—is about to add one more unexpected chapter to Josey’ s fast-changing life.

    Brimming with warmth, wit, and a sprinkling of magic, here is a spellbinding tale of friendship, love—and the enchanting possibilities of every new day.

  • Minimum Wage Magic

    Minimum Wage Magic by Rachel Aaron

    Minimum Wage Magic by Rachel Aaron is 99c at Amazon! Sarah is a big fan of Aaron’s urban fantasy books and mentioned this on a previous Hide Your Wallet. Have you read this one?

    The DFZ, the metropolis formerly known as Detroit, is the world’s most magical city with a population of nine million and zero public safety laws. That’s a lot of mages, cybernetically enhanced chrome heads, and mythical beasties who die, get into debt, and otherwise fail to pay their rent. When they can’t pay their bills, their stuff gets sold to the highest bidder to cover the tab.

    That’s when they call me. My name is Opal Yong-ae, and I’m a Cleaner: a freelance mage with an art history degree who’s employed by the DFZ to sort through the mountains of magical junk people leave behind. It’s not a pretty job, or a safe one—there’s a reason I wear bite-proof gloves—but when you’re deep in debt in a lawless city where gods are real, dragons are traffic hazards, and buildings move around on their own, you don’t get to be picky about where your money comes from. You just have to make it work, even when the only thing of value in your latest repossessed apartment is the dead body of the mage who used to live there.

  • Sleeping Giants

    Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

    RECOMMENDEDSleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel is $1.99! It’s a scifi novel with some great female characters. Readers say that though this scifi is a little darker and less “feel good,” they loved it. However, some felt a bulk of the book was just setup and information dumping for the next book. Elyse enjoyed this one and I really loved the audiobook.

    Sleeping Giants is a thriller fueled by an earthshaking mystery—and a fight to control a gargantuan power.
    A girl named Rose is riding her new bike near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota, when she falls through the earth. She wakes up at the bottom of a square hole, its walls glowing with intricate carvings. But the firemen who come to save her peer down upon something even stranger: a little girl in the palm of a giant metal hand.

    Seventeen years later, the mystery of the bizarre artifact remains unsolved—its origins, architects, and purpose unknown. Its carbon dating defies belief; military reports are redacted; theories are floated, then rejected.

    But some can never stop searching for answers.

    Rose Franklin is now a highly trained physicist leading a top secret team to crack the hand’s code. And along with her colleagues, she is being interviewed by a nameless interrogator whose power and purview are as enigmatic as the provenance of the relic. What’s clear is that Rose and her compatriots are on the edge of unraveling history’s most perplexing discovery—and figuring out what it portends for humanity. But once the pieces of the puzzle are in place, will the result prove to be an instrument of lasting peace or a weapon of mass destruction?

  • Not of This World

    Not of This World by Tracy St. John

    Not of This World by Tracy St. John is $1.99! This is the first book in a sci-fi romance series. Readers say this has some great sexual tension and chemistry between the main characters, but that there are a lot of plot threads to keep straight. Also, I think the cover model’s stripes are creating this weird illusion where his neck seems incredibly long.

    He was her savior, but she was his salvation.

    Jeannie Gardner escapes from her captors’ clutches only to find herself trapped on a planet far from Earth. When she is discovered by a muscle-bound warrior, she must prove to him, and the Council of Elders, that she is not a creature set free from a lab, but a sentient being from another planet.

    If she succeeds, they will send her home. If she fails, she will be executed.

    Risnar warrior Kren Bolep is duty bound to protect his village from the Monsuda and their creations. But this small pink-skinned female is different, special. As the bond between them grows, Jeannie’s vulnerability invokes Kren’s protective instincts, and he vows to uncover the truth and secure her future.

    But there is a bigger threat looming. The Monsuda are coming to get Jeannie, and they’ll use whatever means necessary. When Jeannie is taken, Kren is forced to choose—disobey the Elders and place his people in danger, or lose the only person who makes him feel whole.

    Minimum Wage Magic is never on sale in Canada. ☹️

  2. Qualisign says:

    Totally agree with SB Sarah that Rachel Aaron’s series are outstanding. I particularly like the DMZ series that begins with MINIMAL WAGE MAGIC. I will definitely be buying this one. Excellent world building, slow burn, terribly competent main characters — basically the opposite of shop and f*ck.

    – Muffin Top (A BBW Romantic Comedy) (The Hartigans Book 2) by Avery Flynn
    – Beau Pair: An m/m age gap teacher/student romance (A Proper Education) by Rhys Everly

    – Bishop: An Arizona Vengeance Novel by Sawyer Bennett
    – Bachelors & Bridesmaids Box Set (Books 1-3) by Barbara Freethy

  4. Qualisign says:

    DFZ, not DMZ. Sigh.

  5. Jazzlet says:

    Minimum Wage Magic isn’t on sale in the UK either 🙁

  6. Empress of Blandings says:

    Chick Magnet by Emma Barry is a quid according to Bookbub today

  7. Christi says:

    Speakeasy by Sarina Bowen is free.

  8. Maria Knops says:

    I agree with Amanda. I enjoyed The Sugar Queen quite a bit (on audio), even if not as much as Garden Spells. Lots to like with great characters and plenty of little mysteries.

  9. LisaM says:

    Interesting that the Sarina Bowen ebook is only available through Amazon. I bought other True North ebooks through Barnes & Noble, and you can buy a paperback there, but not the ebook. I wonder if that’s connected to them now being in Kindle unlimited?

  10. flchen1 says:

    @LisaM, that’s a direct correlation to them being in KU. The ebook can’t be for sale anywhere else.

  11. Qualisign says:

    After buying the e-book version of MINIMAL WAGE MAGIC, I found the audiobook was also available for $1.99. Hard click! Having spent most of my adult life outside the US, I understand the pain of not being able to catch the US sales, @Michelle and @Jazzlet. Sorry to rub it in.

  12. LisaM says:

    Thanks @flchen1 I didn’t realize that applied for books already published, going in to KU.

  13. Kelly D says:

    Thank you @flchen1 for regularly posting great deals that you find and share.
