The Instant When Everything is Perfect By Jessica Barksdale Inclan

Mia thought she had everything-a thriving career, a wonderful husband, and two beautiful sons. But illness shakes her out of her comfort zone when her mother is diagnosed with breast cancer. At her mother's bedside, she meets someone whose presence seems to fill a void in her, a void she wasn't even aware existed.

Robert is happily convinced he's going to spend his life alone until he meets Mia, who makes him question everything. As a surgeon, he's helped many women put their lives back together. And despite his compelling feelings about Mia, he doesn't want to make hers fall apart.

When You Go Away By Jessica Barksdale Inclan

**The above book is NO LONGER FREE** it was free for about 45 minutes, keep an eye on it as it might pop up again. THANKS for the warning kindlefan.

From the acclaimed author of The Matter of Grace and Her Daughter's Eyes-a novel about a mother of three who, abandoned by her husband, tries to run from her problems. But when she returns, it's only the beginning of her family's journey.

The Hush By William Flowers

From the older images of a sad, blue-eyed Jesus to the more recent, more violently graphic portrayals of his suffering, Hollywood has trained us to see the savior of the world as just another victim. To be sure, Jesus Christ endured terrible physical abuse and a barbaric death, but the night before it all happened, when he prayed in agony, alone in the garden, he was anticipating a much darker prospect, a terrible moment that according to Luke's Gospel would cause the sun's light to fail.

The Hush presents an alternative view, a much larger, more comprehensive look at the familiar story, combining a unique blend of speculation with the biblical record. Passion and humor and friendship are exchanged between Jesus and his disciples, while all around them danger and conflict and unseen posturing mounts. The week wears away, the hours tick down, the trials commence, and the abuse escalates. Evil is unleashed like never before.

And then comes the moment when the sun refuses to shine; as the Lord of the universe is nailed to a tree and lifted from the earth, the Hush descends.

Shadows & Secrets (Annals of Wynnewood) By Chautona Havig
No one knows what the cloaked creature is or why it is so terrifying. The villagers of Wynnewood only know that they must stay away from 'the creature' for fear of their physical and spiritual safety. An unfortunate encounter with a dragon introduces Philip Ward to the creature, and to his surprise, he finds a friend, confidante, and companion in more adventure than he'd ever dreamed possible. Follow Philip and the creature as they rescue a lame child, discover 'pirate treasure', and test the mettle of true friendship Shadows & Secrets is the first book in the Annals of Wynnewood

EDITED after kindlefan's warning

Texas Roads (A Miller's Creek Novel) By Cathy Bryant

City gal Dani Davis just wants a place to call home. With quirky residents, quaint country charm, and loads of business potential, Miller's Creek Texas seems like the perfect place to start over . . . except for the cowboy who gives her a ride into town. Dani secretly finances renovations to downtown Miller's Creek, but malicious rumors force her to choose between keeping her involvement a secret and the home for which she's always longed. Then a devastating discovery propels her down a road she never expected to travel.

Steve Miller is determined to rescue his dying hometown. When vandals jeopardize the renovation, he can't help but suspect Dani, whose strange behavior has become fodder for local gossips. Can Steve and Dani call a truce for a higher cause, and in the process help Dani recognize the true meaning of home?

Machiavelli's Desert By Lawrence Uhlin

Machiavelli's Desert is a book of espionage, intrigue and controversy where Canada's sovereignty is at risk because of a CANDU Reactor meltdown in the Pacific island country of Arnivan. Canada's prime minister, Nicholas Plato, is offered a solution that could be the country's salvation or its embarrassment.

National security agent Mari Volser searches for the reason why a disgruntled senior Canadian scientist's body was found floating in the Ottawa River. In Houston, a brilliant, quirky microbiologist disappears from the university where she leads research on carbon fullerene superconductors. Volser and her partner, Beau Metcalfe, hear an ex-con's story that suggests a link between their investigations and Canada's dilemma.

From the Atlantic to the Pacific Machiavelli's Desert takes the reader on a colourful voyage of mystery, intrigue and greed across Canada to Washington, Houston, Grand Cayman Island, the British Virgin Islands, and to the Hawaiian island of Maui where a surprising and unexpected conclusion is revealed. Machiavelli's Desert tests the strength of values existing in international and national politics, and asks - when does a profound wrong become a moral right?
*******************************************************

Too Many Lies By Daphine Glenn Robinson

Deidre Thompson believed her marriage was finally on the right track. After all, her husband, Stanley told her there would be no more secrets, no more lies. When they move back home to their hometown after being away for fifteen years, Deidre discovers a family secret that shakes the foundation of their unsteady marriage.

Through the pain, she remains committed to him because of her vows and faith, despite the evidence she holds in the palm of her hand.

When Stanley's lies and old secrets are uncovered, they are enough to send Deidre running-straight to Las Vegas-to an old friend and into the arms of another man.

Sometimes it takes a woman a long time to realize what everyone else has seen since the beginning. He's not the one.

Morning everyone!

Poison Oak Summer by AK Dawson is free until Friday.

Eighteen-year-old Lucy came to California to have fun. But within hours of arriving at the summer camp where she is supposed to work, she discovers the body of a boy floating in a nearby river. At least that's what she thinks she sees. The body disappears down a waterfall and no-one will believe her that it existed in the first place - not even the police. Lucy decides to find out the truth for herself. Along the way, she discovers that life is stranger than she thought possible and death stranger still.

Poison Oak Summer is a mystery in three parts. This is part one.

Thanks,
Andrew

Good morning everyone.
I was browsing through Amazon site and I found this one. It is written in the 1st person though but sounds good.

It's Always Five O'Clock

"It's Always Five O'clock" is a haunting story about the dark side of human nature, and the frailty of the human psyche, which will stay on your mind long after you've finished reading the book.''

What You Wish For
Carrie Preston is desperately trying to stand up to her pushy family and failing badly. When her favourite aunt dies she retreats into her favourite book, Elizabeth Gaskell's North and South, only to find herself suddenly stuck in that story and seriously messing with her favourite romance of all time!
When Carrie's kooky aunt bequeaths her a pair of amethyst earrings in her will and says that they will grant her her hearts desire, she has no idea that she will end up in the middle of the 19th century, slap bang in the middle of her favourite book. With nothing but the clothes on her back and her rucksack, she is taken in by the Hale family and soon finds herself living in the dirty, smoky industrial town of Milton.
......................
A Game of Proof (The trials of Sarah Newby) is back on free. I downloaded it a while back but it is not read yet.
A mother's worst nightmare - can her son be guilty of murder?

Sarah Newby, who left school at 15, and was living as a teenage single parent on an inner-city estate, has worked her way up to begin a career as a criminal barrister. Then in a terrible irony her own son, Simon, is arrested and charged with a series of brutal rapes and murders. The evidence against him appears so strong that his QC advises a guilty plea...

Love Unlisted: A Novel this sounds fun.

Grace Shields keeps her hectic life manageable one way and one way only: she makes lists, lots of them. Lists of her favorite Jackie Chan movies. Lists of her boyfriend's Pros and Cons. Lists about her favorite places to get a pizza. To Grace, each one is a very serious matter. And that's why no one ever reads the lists. Well, no one except for a few people who got a hold of them by accident...
1. Her best friend Bernsie, who understands the lists might be the only thing keeping Grace out of an asylum;
2. A child psychologist she was forced to see after her father passed away and the listing become more than just a hobby;
3. A very-nearly-almost fiancé who left Grace because of the lists.
Now, as Grace struggles to deal with a career that's getting away from her and the frustration of living with her brother George, the lists are all she can do to cope.
Enter Colin Kilbourne, a free-spirited musician with a knack for ruffling Grace's pristine feathers. And spilling coffee on her favorite work clothes. Immediately drawn to his carefree, stress-free attitude, Grace knows they'd be mismatched in every possible way. But that mischievous charm is hard to resist. What's a girl to do when the lists tell you to do one thing and your hearts tells you another?
