Free Fridays

Categories: Free Fridays



Always on the lookout for the next big scoop, reporter Kendall O’Dell jumps at the chance to help a young woman claim her intriguing inheritance—in exchange for an exclusive story. After her father’s death, it appears that Angela Martin is heir to an Arizona gold mining town, but she needs some help staking her claim. Kendall goes along for the ride, sniffing a chance at a unique story.


But the more the intrepid reporter finds out about the Martin family, the less likely it seems that everything about Angela’s acount is on the level. A single closet wouldn’t be big enough to hold all of the skeletons haunting the Martin clan, and soon Kendall wonders whether Angela’s father’s death may not have been an accident after all. Kendall might get the scoop, but now she’s wondering if she’ll live to tell the tale!


In her newest contemporary romance novel, A Scent of Jasmine, Nobel takes a step away from her popular mystery series, as she explores a strong friendship between two women that’s tested when an alluring man comes between them.

WOOHOO! Bonanza! I LOVE visiting my elibrary and choosing a book from among the HUNDREDS I have gotten free or bought on sale. If I lived in a mansion I could not wish for a better library of books. I can lift a thousand books with one hand!


THANKS to Jeremy, Jeff and Spec for making me rich in reading material.

Thanks Jeremy!  I LOVE mysteries and have never read a Kendall O'Dell mystery, so this is a great introduction for me this week!


Thanks also to Spec and JfroJeff for the additional lists.  As always, my waiting-to-read shelf continues to grow.

Thank you Jeremy &!  Great to find your comment first, Jeff!  (I was out of town during all the drama, but I'm happy you are posting again.) And special thanks from me to Spec for the vegetable book -- your timing couldn't have been better, as our family's first garden is coming up and I wasn't quite sure where to go from here!.. Love these Free Fridays!


PS Does anyone know if there's a juvenile/YA selection, akin to the "Daily Find for Families, that's free on Friday?  I frequently "borrow" my daughter's Nook Tablet, and I'd like to return the favor by filling it with titles she would enjoy, rather than clogging up her library with stuff for me...)
