Artemis Gordon Posted January 16 Share Posted January 16 Night Broken Night Broken by Patricia Briggs is $2.99! This is book eight in the Mercy Thompson series, which is a re-reading favorite among many, including people in my house who aren’t me. This book has a 4.4 star average (wow!) on GoodReads, too. If you’re looking to fill in your Mercy collection, here’s a great opportunity. An unexpected phone call heralds a new challenge for Mercy. Her mate Adam’s ex-wife is in trouble, on the run from a stalker. Adam isn’t the kind of man to turn away a person in need—and Mercy knows it. But with Christy holed up in Adam’s house, Mercy can’t shake the feeling that something about the situation isn’t right. Soon, her suspicions are confirmed when she learns that Christy has the farthest thing from good intentions. She wants Adam back and she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it happen, including turning Adam’s pack against Mercy. Mercy isn’t about to step down without a fight, but there’s a more dangerous threat circling. Christy’s stalker is more than a bad man—in fact, he may not be human at all. As the bodies start piling up, Mercy must put her personal troubles aside to face a creature with the power to tear her whole world apart.

This is book one in the Commissario Brunetti mystery series, which is now 32 books long. I’m featuring this one because I bought it because this was one of my late grandmother’s favorite mystery series. This book has a 3.8 star average, and rave reviews from Grandma H. I don’t see any price matching yet, but fingers crossed. Have you read this series? A conductor succumbs to cyanide at the famed Venice opera house, in the first mystery in the New York Times–bestselling, award-winning series. During intermission at the famed La Fenice opera house in Venice, Italy, a notoriously difficult and widely disliked German conductor is poisoned—and suspects abound. Guido Brunetti, a native Venetian, sets out to unravel the mystery behind the high-profile murder. To do so, he calls on his knowledge of Venice, its culture, and its dirty politics. Along the way, he finds the crime may have roots going back decades—and that revenge, corruption, and even Italian cuisine may play a role.

This is one of the most absorbing and atmospheric books I’ve ever read, and if you like time slip fiction, you’ll probably really enjoy this book. Back in 2011, it was my Sizzling Book Club pick. It has a 4.1 star average, and is book one in a three-book series. Have you read this book? History has all but forgotten… In the spring of 1708, an invading Jacobite fleet of French and Scottish soldiers nearly succeeded in landing the exiled James Stewart in Scotland to reclaim his crown. Now, Carrie McClelland hopes to turn that story into her next bestselling novel. Settling herself in the shadow of Slains Castle, she creates a heroine named for one of her own ancestors and starts to write. But when she discovers her novel is more fact than fiction, Carrie wonders if she might be dealing with ancestral memory, making her the only living person who knows the truth-the ultimate betrayal-that happened all those years ago, and that knowledge comes very close to destroying her… Add to Goodreads To-Read List → You can find ordering info for this book here. Darkfever Darkfever by Karen Marie Moning is $1.99! This is the first in the Fever series, and during the height of Urban Fantasy/Paranormal romance popularity, I think everyone I knew had read or was reading this book and exclaiming about it. Is it fair to say that some books imprint upon a readership? If so, I think this one did. Did you read this one, too? “My name is MacKayla, Mac for short. I’m a sidhe-seer, one who sees the Fae, a fact I accepted only recently and very reluctantly. My philosophy is pretty simple – any day nobody’s trying to kill me is a good day in my book. I haven’t had many good days lately. Not since the walls between Man and Fae came down. But then, there’s not a sidhe-seer alive who’s had a good day since then.” When MacKayla’s sister was murdered, she left a single clue to her death – a cryptic message on Mac’s cell phone. Journeying to Ireland in search of answers, Mac is soon faced with an even greater challenge: staying alive long enough to master a power she had no idea she possessed – a gift that allows her to see beyond the world of man, into the dangerous realm of the Fae… As Mac delves deeper into the mystery of her sister’s death, her every move is shadowed by the dark, mysterious Jericho…while at the same time, the ruthless V’lane – an alpha Fae who makes sex an addiction for human women – closes in on her. As the boundary between worlds begins to crumble, Mac’s true mission becomes clear: to find the elusive Sinsar Dubh before someone else claims the all-powerful Dark Book – because whoever gets to it first holds nothing less than complete control both worlds in their hands… Add to Goodreads To-Read List → You can find ordering info for this book here.
