A Pedigree To Die For (A Melanie Travis Mystery)
Melanie' Travis's life is going to the dogs. With school out for the summer, a stint as a camp counselor falling through, and her sometime boyfriend dumping her for a Las Vegas chorus girl, the thirty-something Connecticut teacher and single mother figures that things can't get any worse.
She figures wrong...Everyone knew that Melanie's Uncle Max had a weak heart. When Aunt Peg finds him dead on the cold floor of their championship kennel, surrounded by eleven whining, prize-winning Standard poodles, she isn't shocked...and doesn't panic. But Melanie is surprised when, three days after the funeral, Peg shows up seeking her help. One of her prize pooches is missing -- and it's beginning to look like Max's sudden demise is more a matter of... murder.

In High Places
For Patrick Nolan, every climb tells a story. And now maybe it's his own .... He's right at the rim, staring over the cliff's knife edge and wondering how things went wrong so quickly. It all started after arriving home from a weekend climbing trip with his father, Kevin. That's when word reached them. In a silent moment, they'd lost the person most important to them--her death raising unanswerable questions and dangerous doubts. Launching a new life in a new town to escape their pain, son and father find themselves in danger of being torn apart forever. As his father seeks a route to solace on the dangerous high face of the rock, Patrick finds a path to hope with the unlikeliest of allies--a pastor's daughter. Together they must discover the one answer that can bring Patrick and Kevin back from the brink of the precipice

Richard Revisited: A Novel about Shakespeare and Richard III
For centuries Richard III counted as the villainous murderer of his young cousins and usurper of his brother's throne. But how much of this reputation was born of the facts, and how much resulted from political urgency of the Tudors? Within the frame of the recent discovery of the king's skeleton in Leicester, Richard Revisited offers a poignant image of three inquisitive minds caught up in an age-old struggle. The statesman Thomas More, Master of the Revels George Buc, and lastly Jennifer Simpson, witness in the Trial of Richard III broadcast in 1984. In their efforts to be true to themselves each risks either humiliation or loss of integrity. Unfolding the action, this controversial novel questions the sources Shakespeare used while writing his famous history-play about the last Plantagenet king. To what extent did the dramatist falsify the facts?

Totnes Nigel says:
In passing Sinful Folk: FIRE: (includes Book 1) is a book I really loved (if "historical" is for you) - it was very atmospheric indeed. However this freebie looks like part one of the whole book (I read the whole book) - great for a taster but it may be worth noting.

(the whole book is Sinful Folk here and is excellent)

I think you'll probably find out that Pointers are actually Dogs and not Chickens, SP!...HA HA HA!!!

(Only joking with you, obviously ;o>)

Made me smile :)

I must admit if I see one more book about were-bear animal changers featuring impossible cleavage and even more impossible 6 packs where the whole plot line is dependant on one not being able to guess that the guy with more hair than Danny da vito and a penchant for trying to hump your leg has an identity issue I shall scream. Or howl.

I do love history and historical, which the main reason why i posted Sinful Folk this morning, but since you say it's very good I'll move it up the reading list. :) I'm glad you liked my choice! x

Zigglyumph and Other Poems
Anarchic. Subversive. Short. Delve into the fantastical adult poetry of Ade Grant, where hypocrisy is dragged from its hiding hole and savaged on the lawn. Are we as rational as we like to think we are? Or have we strayed too far from our path, running scared of the Zigglyumphs?

Hansel And Grethel And Other Grimm's Fairy Tales (Illustrated by Arthur Rackham)
«Hansel And Grethel And Other Grimm's Fairy Tales» is a collection of German fairy tales by the Grimm brothers (, Jacob (1785-1863) and Wilhelm (1786-1859). Their first collection of folk tales was published in 1812. The ebook edition of Grimm's fairy tales from Animedia Company is magnificently illustrated by Arthur Rackham and consists of 59 marvellous tales.

Nuremberg or the Promised Land
This book was the first extended critique of the Nuremberg Trial. For a Frenchman to criticize that trial and especially the French role in it in 1948 took great courage: the book was banned in France, copies of it were seized, and Bardèche in 1952 was sentenced to a year in prison, although he spent only a few weeks there before being pardoned. His criticisms of the Nuremberg Trial have since been repeated by many others. Yet Bardèche's first book about Nuremberg remains something special, for it is much more than just a critique of the trial. It is the first work of Revisionism, and perhaps the only revisionist work that reads like great literature. It is a revisionist call-to-arms: it pleads for "history," but recognizes that it is still too early for the history of the war to be written: emotions are running too high. It cries out for objectivity, but does so while simmering with passion. It does not merely refute lies; it spits venom at the liars.

Whimsy & Soda, a collection of Jeeves and Wooster pastiches, is free again. It's a great read which I strongly recommend.

WHIMSY & SODA (formerly "WODEHOUSEBROKEN") is a collection of twelve hilarious short stories featuring the best-known and best-liked characters of P.G. Wodehouse's fiction-Bertie Wooster and his man, Jeeves. (The included stories are parodic and not authorized by the Wodehouse Estate.) In the opening story, "By and By, Bertie," Bertie Wooster wakes up one morning to find himself changed in his bed into... a parakeet? Shades of Kafka!* Jeeves takes his annual vacation; the agency sends Bertie the only valet it has available, and that valet is a robot, in "G.E.V.E.". "Jeeves Your Own Adventure" allows the reader to play the role of Jeeves himself!* In "Back to the Wooster," Bertie, while in New York, is persuaded by a stranger to take a quick car ride... to the year 1967! And in "Jeeves and Wayne," Jeeves helps the Batman begin.
