Three amazing offers and a wild horse summer

So we’re having an amazing, if broiling, summer with scorching temperatures in both England and Colorado (and everywhere else in the world, it seems.)

Pam completed  the “French 500”, an amazingly difficult (she says) 500 kilometre tandem ride from Redhill in Surrey to La Rochelle, South West France.  She swore her bottom swelled to double its normal size despite shedloads of padding!

After that it was time for her annual volunteering stint, this time in Devon providing lunch and support for the intrepid super-fit challengers tackling steep hills and rocky paths on rickety-looking mountain bikes. Still it was all for charity so hats off to them.  And if Pam spent most of her time, snuggling up to the Dartmoor ponies that run free in this most wonderful part of Britain – well, who can blame her!

Meanwhile Lorraine went to Wyoming to gentle and train some untouched baby Spanish mustangs looking for homes and hang out with the lucky herd who’ve found permanent sanctuary in this beautiful ranch.  She also managed a quick trip to Arches National Park and added baby goats to the list of household pets.

Dem bones, dem dog biscuits and dem great free mysteries!

  • Before we get on to the free books, (yes, we said, FREE)  did you know February 23rd is International  Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day?   Oh, you didn’t?  Well no matter, because Pam’s border terrier, Milly, won’t touch the things.  Mind you, at 16 she’s allowed to be picky.  Whereas Remy, Lorraine’s whoodle (wheaten terrier x poodle) much prefers bones although only if there are no  varmints for the hunting.  Anyway, here they are, pictured below, man’s best friend and certainly ours, although when Remy buries his blood-oozing bones in her bed and destroys the lawn tractor seat in search of a rat, Lorraine sometimes has her doubts.

Talking of dogs, friendship and bones, we’re madly excited to offer TWO mystery novels on a very limited free promotion: our very own When Good Friends Go Bad, a story of divorce, love and friendship (in which a scruffy mongrel happens to play a key role), and Julie Frayn’s dark, suspenseful and highly entertaining Pocketful of Bones.   We also have Helen Smith’s Invitation To Die on sale for only 99 cents and a fantastic giveaway with a ton of Crime, Thriller and Suspense Novels to be won.  Only available for a day or two so don’t miss out!

Details below:

POCKETFUL OF BONES

FREE:  February 24 – 28!!!  

By Julie Frayn

“… a narrative that flows with often painful beauty. Rabid Reader’s Reviews

The story is dark, suspenseful, at times funny, and even heart-breaking. The ending made me gasp out loud. April Wood, A Well Read Woman

Finnegan MacGillivray, red-haired, freckle-faced social pariah, finds solace in his mother’s garden while she entertains “dates” in his home. When an accident takes the life of a friend, Finnegan buries the evidence amid the purple dead nettle and bougainvillea, and unearths a treasure trove of human remains. Did his house rest atop an ancient burial ground? Or was there a killer tucking him into bed at night?

His fascination with bones grows as fast as his obsession with his mother. She rejects his advances, and he escapes to the other side of the country. Years later, he returns to his childhood home, to the secrets and the guilt and the bones — and to fulfil his destiny.

Invitation to Die (Emily Castles Mysteries)

.99 SALE: ENDS FEBRUARY28!!!!

 

By Helen Smith
Offbeat and engaging, this entertaining comic mystery is the first full-length novel featuring amateur British sleuth Emily Castles.

Twenty-six-year-old Emily Castles is out of work again. So when famous romance author Morgana Blakely offers her a job helping out at a conference in London, Emily accepts. Just as eagerly, American blogger Winnie Kraster accepts an invitation from Morgana to attend as a guest, not realizing she has, in effect, accepted an invitation to die. As a cast of oddball characters assembles at the conference hotel, grievances, differences, and secrets begin to emerge. When Winnie goes missing, and then is found murdered nearby, Emily begins to suspect that someone involved with the conference is responsible. Could it be one of the organizers, one of the authors, a member of the hotel staff, or even the supplier of the chocolates for the conference gift bags? Emily teams up with guest speaker and eccentric philosophy professor Dr. Muriel to find out.
