A Bodacious Bounty of Free/99 Reading

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ August 27, 2019

This month I have a bounty of specials to offer. Readers liking a chilling edge to their reading will want to take a look at Summer Chills and Thrills offering 41 suspense novels all available for free download. As always, I remind you, check the ratings, there is a variety.

I offer An All-Consuming Fire, book 5 in my Monastery Murders: A Christmas wedding in a monastery—idyllic. If the groom can finish the film his predecessor was killed making and the bride can escape the murderer stalking the Yorkshire moors.

For the romantics among us, and who isn’t to some extent? Your Next Book Boyfriend offers 37 romances of ratings from all ages to adult.

My Where Love Triumphs is, of course, all ages: The brilliant, but lame, Cambridge scholar Sir Brandley Hilliard believes he can do very well without love of any kind—until his life is thoroughly disordered by the delightful Elinor Silbert. A debonair marquess also has designs on Elinor, but the real roadblock to Elinor and Brandley’s happiness is a deeper need than human love can meet. Brandley’s search takes a destructive turn until historic figures Robert Hall and Charles Simeon show Elinor and Brandley the only Love that can truly satisfy.

One more, for those who like samples: Take a Leap, Test the Waters with 24 samples of mystery novels: Crime. police procedural, cozy and thriller, all free, of course.

 

Check out my A Darkly Hidden Truth, #2 in the Monastery Murders: Lent and Easter in a monastery—a sacred, set-aside time—until a valuable icon goes missing. And Felicity’s impossible mother arrives unexpectedly. And a good friend turns up murdered...A clerical mystery in the classic English detective style.

Wait, there’s more! This week only .99 sale of 15 Sweet and Clean Romances.

Including my The Shadow of Reality: A week at a resort high in the Rockies, enacting and solving a Dorothy L. Sayers-style mystery—a perfect spring break for two English professors. And all the more perfect for Elizabeth when the man of her dreams enters the scene. Until the play-acting embroils them in a real-life murder and the lines between reality and fiction blur dangerously.

Yes, there is more to writing than giving away books—fun as that is. Many of you have been following my Jane Austen at the Seashore blog series. Thank you for your kind comments—I do love hearing from my readers! I concluded the series back where Jane ended so many of her travels at Chawton. Knowing Austen’s deep love for home, I thought of my father always saying, “The best part of any trip is getting home.” I hope you enjoyed the series. I’ll be starting another this fall on Jane Austen’s homes.

The writing life, like any other, is full of surprises. My plan was that by now I would be deep into writing my next Elizabeth and Richard literary suspense based on Jane’s seashore travels. I had even settled on the, I hope intriguing, title A Prodigious Sum of Corpses. But, surprise, surprise, the project that bubbled to the surface from that simmering stew pot that is most writers’ brains, is my next Monastery Murder. This will find Felicity and Antony whizzing across Canada on a train from monastery to monastery trying to save an ancient Gregorian chant manuscript. Which means that, for the sake of authenticity, next month my husband and I will journey from Vancouver to Toronto on the train—something I’ve wanted to do for many years--only slightly enhanced by the fact that our daughter and her family are moving to Victoria. So watch this space to follow my trans-Canada adventure.
