Yep, that got your attention didn’t it? I know, it’s one of my favourite things to hear too along with ‘open bar’ and ‘look, a dog!’. After telling myself that I didn’t need any more books with all these ARC’s I still have to read, I sort of maybe might have… Got another 8… I just couldn’t help it!
I bought them through amazon to read on my kindle, and at the time of writing this they are all absolutely free! So I thought I’d share them with all of you to enjoy as well. It’s lovely to get free books of course but don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon, Goodreads etc as it will mean a lot to the author – and encourage others to buy them! 🙂
An Affair to Dismember – Elise Sax
Get it here
Three months has been Gladie Burger’s limit when it comes to staying in one place. That’s why Gladie is more than a little skeptical when her Grandma Zelda—who is more than a little psychic– recruits her into the family’s matchmaking business in the quaint small town of Cannes, California. What’s more, Gladie is also highly unqualified, having a terrible track record with romance. Still, Zelda is convinced that her granddaughter has her clairvoyant “gift.” But when the going gets tough, Gladie wonders if this gift has a return policy.
When Zelda’s neighbor drops dead in his kitchen, Gladie is swept into his bizarre family’s drama. Despite warnings from the (distractingly gorgeous) chief of police to steer clear of his investigation, Gladie is out to prove that her neighbor’s death was murder. It’s not too long before she’s in way over her head—with the hunky police chief, a dysfunctional family full of possible killers, and yet another mysterious and handsome man, whose attentions she’s unable to ignore. Gladie is clearly being pursued—either by true love or by a murderer. Who will catch her first?
