Leftover Girl, by C.C. Bolick. (Still free?)
“This book starts off telling about a contemporary teenage story where youngsters between 15-18 question many happenings from the past in order to unravel the truth and unveil secrets around the life of the left-over girl.
The author is well-versed in creating drama, building a fuzzy atmosphere covering layers of truth in darkness, building fear, guilt, anger into relationships.” — Amazon Reviewer
Jes Delaney can’t remember anything before she was found at four, barefoot in the headlights of an old Ford.
At fifteen, she has adjusted to moving without notice and never fitting in, but everything changes with her adopted mom’s hometown. There Jes falls for her mom’s nephew, a love she hides when his betrayal leaves her isolated and driven to unravel the past.
After Jes befriends a strange new student, she discovers an unbelievable secret: he’s from another planet and searching for a missing girl who just might be her. As Jes will learn, truth comes at a cost, but will she give up love to find out?
What makes this story different?
The mixture of realistic teen drama and lite sci-fi. Twists and turns will keep readers guessing until the end and leave some questions for the next suspenseful book in this series, Secrets Return. Think you know who Jes really is? Keep reading…

Mind’s Eye (Nick Hall Book 1), by Douglas E. Richards. (Still free?)
“The most intelligent book I’ve read in quite a while. Mr Richards imagines that a brain implant has been engineered, to allow the mind to surf the net directly without need for an external computer, and he explores the implications through this exciting story in great depth. The Bad Guys encourage spread of the use of the device, anticipating that they will be able to reverse the flow (direct the brain, instead of letting the brain direct the net) and so dominate the world.” — Amazon Reviewer
A breathtaking near-future thriller. From the NY Times bestselling author whose books have sold over a million copies.
When Nick Hall wakes up in a dumpster–bloodied, without a memory, and hearing voices in his head–he knows things are bad. But they’re about to get far worse. Because he’s being hunted by a team of relentless assassins. Soon Hall discovers that advanced electronics have been implanted in his brain, and he now has two astonishing abilities. He can surf the web using thoughts alone. And he can read minds. But who’s responsible? And why is someone so desperate to kill him?
As Hall battles for survival and races to find answers, he comes to learn that far more is at stake than just his life. Because his actions can either catapult civilization to new heights–or bring about its total collapse.
Based on actual research on thought-controlled web surfing, Mind’s Eye is a smart, roller-coaster ride of a thriller. One that raises a number of intriguing possibilities about a future that is just around the corner.
Be sure to look for BrainWeb (Nick Hall 2) and MindWar (Nick Hall 3)

The Butterfly Garden (The Collector Series Book 1), by Dot Hutchison. (Still 1.99?)
“The Butterfly Garden is a psychological thriller that makes you keep reading late into the night. The story starts with two FBI men interviewing a victim though there is some doubt that she possibly participated in the atrocities of the Butterfly Garden. Victor and Eddison play the good cop, bad cop routine in an effort to elicit Maya’s story which she tells in a series of flashbacks over two days.” — Amazon Reviewer
Near an isolated mansion lies a beautiful garden.
In this garden grow luscious flowers, shady trees…and a collection of precious “butterflies”—young women who have been kidnapped and intricately tattooed to resemble their namesakes. Overseeing it all is the Gardener, a brutal, twisted man obsessed with capturing and preserving his lovely specimens.
When the garden is discovered, a survivor is brought in for questioning. FBI agents Victor Hanoverian and Brandon Eddison are tasked with piecing together one of the most stomach-churning cases of their careers. But the girl, known only as Maya, proves to be a puzzle herself.
As her story twists and turns, slowly shedding light on life in the Butterfly Garden, Maya reveals old grudges, new saviors, and horrific tales of a man who’d go to any length to hold beauty captive. But the more she shares, the more the agents have to wonder what she’s still hiding…
