The Marker (The Bridge Series Book 1), by Ann Howes. (Still 2.99?)
“Had a tough time putting this one down! Absolutely well written with a great story. Mystery and romance. Perfect combo!” — Amazon Reviewer
***Not a cliffhanger*** Although the first book in the series, it is a stand alone with a happy ever after ending.
Shelley De Luca has a problem. A large, man-sized one in the form of the older brother of her
dead high school sweetheart. She owes him a marker and he intends to collect. In the biblical
way. Sure, he’s dangerous, a jerk and a player but he’s also gorgeous, sexy and secretly the man
of her dreams. Except for the small matter of her heart, paying him back should be easy.
Gianni Cadora is Mafia trying to go legit. When Shelley stumbles back into his life, she comes
with bruises, a psycho ex and a spicy attitude he can’t resist. He’s an alpha bad-ass used to
getting his way, so why is it so difficult to convince her he’s what she needs?
Perhaps it’s their history or his reputation, but he isn’t above using his marker or a funny, flatulent dog to get what he wants.
348 pages, with a 4.6-star rating from 12 reviews.
The Munich Girl: A Novel of the Legacies that Outlast War, by Phyllis Edgerly Ring. (Still 0.99?)
“This novel is about women. About friendship. About the way we protect each others’ vulnerabilities. Of the secrets we keep. And about our loyalty to each other, though we carry out our daily lives supporting our men, as that’s what women did, especially back in the day.” — Amazon Reviewer
Anna Dahlberg grew up eating dinner under her father’s war-trophy portrait of Eva Braun.
Fifty years after the war, she discovers what he never did—that her mother and Hitler’s mistress were friends.
The secret surfaces with a mysterious monogrammed handkerchief, and a man, Hannes Ritter, whose Third Reich family history is entwined with Anna’s.
Plunged into the world of the “ordinary” Munich girl who was her mother’s confidante—and a tyrant’s lover—Anna finds her every belief about right and wrong challenged. With Hannes’s help, she retraces the path of two women who met as teenagers, shared a friendship that spanned the years that Eva Braun was Hitler’s mistress, yet never knew that the men they loved had opposing ambitions.
Eva’s story reveals that she never joined the Nazi party, had Jewish friends, and was credited at the Nuremberg Trials with saving 35,000 Allied lives. As Anna’s journey leads back through the treacherous years in wartime Germany, it uncovers long-buried secrets and unknown reaches of her heart to reveal the enduring power of love in the legacies that always outlast war.

The Haunted Inn (A Lin Coffin Mystery Book 8), by J A Whiting. (Still 0.99?)
“This is a great series. Loaded with touches of history, genealogy and terrific fiction. Sleuths are very likable and the dialog moves the action along.” — Amazon Reviewer

The main mystery is solved in each book but you will enjoy the stories more if they are read in order.

Two murders and a ghost who can’t cross over pull Lin and Viv into the mystery to find the killer and to figure out the connections between the victims, the murderer, and the ghost.

This story has ghosts and some mild paranormal elements.
262 pages, with a 4.8-star rating from 28 reviews.
Stranger in Town (Sloane Monroe Book 4), by Cheryl Bradshaw. (Still free?)
“What I most enjoyed was the simplicity, delight and ease of the experience. I did not notice the author’s craft as it gave way to invisibly support the drama itself. Ernest Hemingway’s famous statement that easy writing makes hard reading suggests that Cheryl Bradshaw draws on both genius and talent for story telling to hide the writing mechanics so well that in retrospect one wonders if they actually read the story or simply watched it unfold like a movie.” — Amazon Reviewer
