Free (nook/Kindle) The Taken by Vicki Pettersson [Urban Fantasy]
The Taken by Vicki Pettersson is 1st in her Celestial Blues "together, they fight crime!"-looking urban fantasy series, free courtesy of publisher HarperCollins.
Currently free @ B&N as their Free Fridays selection of the week. (ETA now also Amazon after being glitched earlier; not available to Canadians or in the UK). Will probably drop elsewhere later, though likely not in all regions (for some reason, Amazon now likes to withhold HarperCollins freebies from Canadians which iTunes is still willing to give).
As always, B&N have a little featurette on their blog where they ask their Free Fridays author to provide an e-book recommendation and if you want to see what Pettersson's is, here's the relevant post.
I should probably note that as mentioned elsewhere, Pettersson's other urban fantasy series, Signs of the Zodiac, for which we've previously received the first one free, is on sale in multiple venues for 99 cents each for pretty much all the volumes in it.
Griffin Shaw used to be a PI, but that was back when gumshoes hoofed the streets . . . and he was still alive. Fifty years later, he's an angel, but that doesn't make him a saint. One small mistake has altered fate, and now he's been dumped back onto the mortal mudflat to collect another soul—Katherine "Kit" Craig, a journalist whose latest investigation is about to get her clipped.
Bucking heavenly orders, Grif refuses to let the sable-haired siren come to harm. Besides, protecting her offers a chance to solve the mystery of his own unsolved murder—and dole out some overdue payback for the death of his beloved wife, Evie.

Apparently the second in this series comes out mid-March, so I imagine that is the reason for the freebie (and possibly the reduction in price of the other series).
