Daily Deals: Two Best-Selling Romantic Suspense Series, The Captain’s Dog and Siege Hero

Silent Run (Sanders Brothers #1)Today Amazon offers two best-selling romantic suspense series. All four books encompassing best-selling author Barbara Freethy’s “Sanders Brothers” and “Deception” series are $1.99 each, up to 60% off the digital list price. Both series are perfect examples of Freethy’s completely engrossing blend of gripping suspense and absorbing romance. Here are the list of these books.

1. Silent Run (Sanders Brothers #1) by Barbara Freethy

A woman wakes in a hospital bed with no idea of who she is. Her memory is gone, her baby missing. All she has is the gripping certainty that she is in mortal danger. Then a handsome, angry stranger barges in and makes a terrible accusation. He was her lover–and her child’s father–until she disappeared seven months ago.

Jake Sanders swore he’d never forgive Sarah Tucker, but he isn’t about to let her get away again–especially not with his daughter still missing. If he has any chance of recovering his baby, he must help the woman who betrayed him retrieve the pieces of her shattered memory–without letting his feelings get in the way.

Haunted by troubling flashes of memory, Sarah begins to realize she’s lived a life of lies. But what is the truth? And where is her baby? 

Silent Fall (Sanders Brothers)2. Silent Fall (Sanders Brothers) by Barbara Freethy

Dylan Sanders is attending a wedding in the mountains when his trip takes a terrible turn. A former lover appears out of nowhere, demands a private conversation, and lures him into the woods, then leaves him there, drugged and disoriented. The next morning, the woman has disappeared, and Dylan is accused of her murder.

Catherine Hilliard, a beautiful psychic haunted by her own dark past, is reluctant to offer up her cryptic visions to help skeptical Dylan figure out what’s going on, but she can’t leave her best friend’s brother-in-law on his own … or deny the powerful, inexplicable connection between them.

It soon becomes clear that a wily and ruthless mastermind has targeted both of them, with a motive that’s very personal. Soon their race to expose the truth is no longer about staying out of jail but about staying alive

The Captain's Dog: My Journey with the Lewis and Clark Tribe (Great Episodes)Also Amazon makes a deals for kids: The Captain’s Dog: My Journey with the Lewis and Clark Tribe (Great Episodes) by Roland Smith. The price is only $1.99 for this book today only.

Grade 5-8-This is the story of the Lewis and Clark expedition as witnessed by Seaman, the massive Newfoundland dog that accompanied the two captains. Faithful to their original diaries, the novel brings to life the day-to-day challenges faced by the team charged with the task of exploring the American West and searching for the legendary Northwest Passage. Action and adventure abound: frequent attacks by grizzly bears and voracious mosquitoes, arduous crossings of nearly impassable landscapes, mutiny and desertion, and close encounters with both friendly and hostile Indians. However, while Seaman’s narration is inventive, Smith has difficulty sustaining it, mainly because the dog is such a minor player in the momentous events that he describes. His point of view often seems too omniscient and introspective, resulting in a narrative that sounds uncomfortably human. Only when he recalls a purely canine memory such as marking trees does he snap readers back to the realization that this storyteller is indeed four-legged. Still, this occasional awkwardness does not diminish the scope and power of this entertaining introduction to an episode of American history rarely celebrated in fiction. For another novel about Seaman and his role in the expedition, look to Gail Langer Karwoski’s Seaman (Peachtree, 1999), a lively account in which this brave animal is a much more central character. – William McLoughlin, Brookside School, Worthington, OH

Daily Deals: All She Ever Wanted and Snow Go Kiddo

All She Ever Wanted

Today you can add to your book collection All She Ever Wanted written by Barbara Freethy just for $1.49.

From #1 New York Times Bestselling Author comes a romantic and suspenseful story of three best friends and a terrible, life-changing secret.

From the back cover:

She was their closest friend, or so they thought — until years later, when her secrets send them on a perilous search for the truth about who she really was … and why she died …

Ten years ago, during a party gone out of control, beautiful, vibrant Emily plummeted to her death, leaving her three best friends and sorority sisters — Natalie, Laura and Madison — devastated. None of them has ever forgotten that night — or the role each may have played in Emily’s death, the guilt that has pursued them, and the loss they still suffer.

Now an unknown writer has rocketed onto bestseller lists with a novel that eerily mirrors their own story. Who is he? How does he know the intimate details of their lives? And why is he accusing one of them of murder? As they begin to unravel the startling truth about their friend, each will rediscover a love she lost long ago and uncover secrets that will forever change her life…

Reviews…

“Three friends reunited to uncover a haunting mystery — I couldn’t put it down.” Luanne Rice.

“ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a gripping tale of romantic suspense, but it’s also a story of friendships, betrayal, love, heartache, and second chances. It’s the story of four young women on the brink of adulthood, full of dreams and expectations, and the tragic event that changed their lives in ways none of them could have foreseen. But even though a tragedy is the basis of the book, it is an uplifting and hopeful tale.”

“Barbara Freethy is a master storyteller with a gift for characterization, and in ALL SHE EVER WANTED, she gives readers seven intriguing characters. In order to discover what happened, Natalie, Cole, Madison, Dylan, Laura, and Drew must come to terms with their pasts, and in doing so, they learn a great deal about themselves and each other. Well written and compelling, ALL SHE EVER WANTED is a fascinating blend of romance, mystery, and suspense. Don’t miss it!” Susan Lantz, Romance Reviews Today

4 /12 stars – Top Pick of the Month – Romantic Times Magazine – “Freethy’s expertly penned novel is a true page-turner.”

Free Kindle Book – Just the Way You Are by Barbara Freethy

I’ve read a few of Barbara Freethy’s romance novels, and have really enjoyed them because they have storylines that tend to have more depth than your basic, trashy romance novel.

Just the Way You Are is about two sisters: Tessa and Alli.  Alli seduces Tessa’s boyfriend, Sam Tucker and that leads to a surprise pregnancy and a troubled marriage.

In sibling relationships, there is often one sibling that is super successful.  That sibling may have the good looks, an amazing job, and the husband or significant other that everyone else would die to have.  Alli lives in the shadow of Tessa, who is a supermodel.  So, this book examines the dynamic of sibling relationships.

The unifying symbol in Just the Way You Are is a pearl necklace that Alli and Tessa’s grandmother, Phoebe started with her husband.  After Phoebe has a stroke, Alli and Tessa come together to find the last pearl in the necklace.  The pearl necklace represents the love their grandparents have, and it helps heal the wounds from the past.

Just the Way You Are will probably not be on the list of free Kindle books very long.  Right now it is #1 on the Top 100 list.  So, if I were you, I’d grab it soon before it goes off the free list.

If you’re into sweet romance novels and beach reads, other authors similar to Freethy are Debbie Macomber, Susan Wiggs, and Barbara Delinsky.  There are more that you’ll find listed as suggestions when you look up these authors.  Most of their Kindle books are pretty cheap.  They’re not always just about romance.  They explore other types of relationships as well.

After going over the reviews, I saw that several reviewers mentioned how real the characters seemed.  I love it when authors create stories that let you escape into the characters’ lives and forget that they aren’t real people.

Viaggiatrice

“The best romance novels are the ones that do not follow formula (at least in every aspect). Barbara Freethy has always been good at making her characters a little more realistic and a little less cookie-cutter. It is a great relief to find someone who does. This story is very well done. None of the characters is a saint, all have insecurities and doubts, and each is very flawed.”

amie

“I always enjoy Barbara Freethy’s style of writing before. She always manages to create characters that real, who are not flawless, and fill with insecurities — which make them real human. And the new novel “Just The Way You Are” impresses me just like others.”
