Sorry, I have limited time to post today.
Author is offering book two in series today.
Bloodstone (A Reluctant Witch Mystery: Stacy Justice Book Two) by Barbra Annino
A long-lost sister.
A missing mother.
Stacy Justice finds herself caught in a web of deceit, betrayal and family secrets that run deeper than the Mississippi in this follow up to Annino's debut novel, OPAL FIRE.
Not only must the reluctant witch determine if the teenager on her doorstep is her sister--she's forced to confront her mother's disappearance--again. Add to that a dead guy in the kitchen and Stacy's at her witch's end. She's pretty sure the Blessed Book of her family's ancestry holds the key. Except she can't find it. And if the killer does--it may be over Stacy's dead body.
Is Ivy really her sister? Where is Stacy's mother? And what does the dead guy have to do with it all? Find out in Bloodstone.
Author's Note: It is highly recommended that you read the first book in the series, OPAL FIRE before reading BLOODSTONE.

Irreparable Harm by Melissa F. Miller. Mystery/thriller/adventure. May not be recommended for those afraid to fly. Good reviews.
There's a smartphone app capable of crashing a commercial jet. And it's for sale to the highest bidder . . .
Attorney Sasha McCandless is closing in on the prize: After eight years of long hours, she's about to make partner at a prestigious law firm. All she has to do is keep her head down and her billable hours up.
Then a plane operated by her client slams into the side of a mountain, killing everyone aboard. She gears up for the inevitable civil lawsuits.
But, as Sasha digs into the case, she learns the crash was no accident. She joins forces with a federal air marshal and they race to prevent another crash.
As they get closer to the truth, people start to turn up dead. And Sasha's next on the list.
She'll need to rely on her legal training and Krav Maga training in equal measure to stop a madman and save herself

On Little Wings by Regina Sirois. Sounds like contemporary fiction with a dash of romance. So many positive reviews. Might be something here for those interested.
Jennifer's mother is not an only child.
Jennifer's aunt has thirty seven freckles.
And life just stopped making sense for this sixteen-year-old girl from Nebraska.
It will take one forbidden journey, an octogenarian movie star, three old pirates, and one scarred genius to put all the pieces back together.
If that is even possible.
When Jennifer finds a dog-eared photograph of a freckled girl, she never dreams the innocent picture will tear open a gaping wound to her mother's secret past.
Jennifer must leave her home, parents, and best friend in the wheat fields of Nebraska and travel to the rocky shores of Maine to find the aunt she never knew she had. Her search for the truth is distracted by the strange and hilarious characters in the tight-knit town of Smithport. From the 88 year old movie star who likes to show off her tattoo, to the fishermen who have a passion for rockets, to the aunt who recites poetry in the long, Maine nights, Jennifer is intrigued by the lives swirling around her.
In the midst of madness she meets Nathan, the tight-lipped, reluctant prodigy who is surrounded by women who need him to be brother, father, protector, provider, and now, first love. With a restrained, mature, and uncertain voice, Jennifer shares her tale of family, love, loss, truth and beauty.
As Jennifer seeks to piece together her mother's shattered story, she inadvertently writes one for herself.

The Shopkeeper: A Steve Dancy Tale by James D. Best. Historical fiction. Published in 2007 by Wheatmark. Might be a pseudo vanity press. Amazon has a review blurb from Woman's Day. Sample seems unimpressive. This may all be hype. Sample first.
In 1879, Steve Dancy sells his New York shop and ventures west to explore and write a journal about his adventures. Though he's not looking for trouble, Dancy's infatuation with another man's wife soon embroils him in a deadly feud with Sean Washburn, a Nevada silver baron.
Infuriated by the outrages of two hired thugs, the shopkeeper kills both men in an impulsive street fight. Dancy believes this barbarian act has closed the episode. He is wrong. He has interfered with Washburn's ambitions, and this is something the mining tycoon will not allow. Is a New York City Shopkeeper tough enough to survive in the Wild West?
Pinkertons, hired assassins, and aggrieved bystanders escalate the feud until it pulls in all the moneyed interests and power brokers in Nevada.

James Best (see above) is also giving us Tempest at Dawn for free at least today.
The United States is on the brink of total collapse. The military has been reduced to near extinction, economic turmoil saps hope, and anarchy threatens, as world powers hover like vultures, eager to devour the remains. In a desperate move, a few powerful men call a secret meeting to plot the overthrow of the government.
Fifty-five men came to Philadelphia May of 1787with a congressional charter to revise the Articles of Confederation. Instead they founded the longest lasting republic in world history.
Tempest at Dawn tells their story.

I picked up the 2nd Barbra Annino-- have the first one waiting in my TBR pile, and not sure I would have noticed this on my own.
By the way, I like your new thread style, and I appreciate that your focus is a little different than some of my other favorite posters. Between you all, it's a rare day that something that looks good to me isn't brought to my attention!

Thanks, KentE. I am glad others appreciate it.
I have a few more minutes to post a couple more. No guarantees on how much free time is left.

Pandora's Succession by Russell Brooks. Mystery/thriller by a self-pubber who does the blogosphere. Reviews decent but mixed.
CIA operative, Ridley Fox, never stopped hunting his fiancée's killers--a weapons consortium called The Arms of Ares. When an informant leads him to an old bunker outside of Groznyy, Chechnya, Fox is captured, beaten, and left for dead. When the informant rescues him, Fox learns that his capture was no coincidence: someone had set him up--possibly another government agent. Fox barely escapes after learning that Ares has acquired a hyperdeadly microbe--called Pandora--that is believed to have wiped out ancient civilizations. The trail leads Fox to Tokyo where he discovers that people within the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Japanese Intelligence want Pandora for themselves. The only person Fox can trust is a woman from his past who he nearly got killed.

The 24th Letter ((Mystery/Thriller)) by Tom Lowe. Originally published by Minotaur Books in 2010. Description on Amazon is all reviews including PW. I hate that.
It happens to every homicide investigator. Even the best of the best. Sean O’Brien never thought it would happen to him. But there was something about the look in the accused man’s face that O’Brien could never quite forget. It was a look that haunted him in the dark hours somewhere between sleep and consciousness. Even a decade later he remembered the man’s face when the jury delivered the guilty verdict.
