Wonderful Reads at Wonderful Prices

Instead of a guest blog post today, we’re talking about some of our favorite writers who are having a sale on one of their titles, or whose books are at a bargain price.

TMSFirst up is my dear friend, Therese Walsh, whose really amazing book, The Moon Sisters, is currently on sale for $1.99 at both Amazon and B&N until May 25th.

Book details: This mesmerizing coming-of-age novel, with its sheen of near-magical realism, is a moving tale of family and the power of stories.

After their mother’s probable suicide, sisters Olivia and Jazz take steps to move on with their lives. Jazz, logical and forward-thinking, decides to get a new job, but spirited, strong-willed Olivia—who can see sounds, taste words, and smell sights—is determined to travel to the remote setting of their mother’s unfinished novel to lay her spirit properly to rest.

Already resentful of Olivia’s foolish quest and her family’s insistence upon her involvement, Jazz is further aggravated when they run into trouble along the way and Olivia latches to a worldly train-hopper who warns he shouldn’t be trusted. As they near their destination, the tension builds between the two sisters, each hiding something from the other, until they are finally forced to face everything between them and decide what is really important.

THoBBLIf you feel like a (virtual) trip to sunny Australia, there are two great books that you should seriously consider, and neither of them will break the bank. First off, debut Australia author Jennie Jones’s book The House on Burra Burra Lane is $3.45 on Amazon. It is $4.99 over at B&N, but that’s still a bargain :)

Book details:

A dilapidated house, a city girl looking for a tree change, and a rugged vet with a past. Just another day in rural Australia . . .

Just ten days after her fresh start in the isolated Snowy Mountains, Samantha Walker trips over a three hundred pound pig and lands in the arms of Dr. Ethan Granger – and the firing line for gossip. It was hardly a ‘date’ but sparks of the sensual kind are difficult to smother in a community of only 87 people. Now there’s a bet running on how long she’ll stay and what she’ll get up to while she’s in town.

Ethan has his own issues – Sammy’s presence in his childhood home brings with it painful recollections of family scandals and a bad boy youth. When the gossip around them heightens, his life is suddenly a deck of cards spread on the table for all to see. Then Sammy’s past catches up with her… and it looks like all bets are off.

ildAnother book I can HIGHLY recommend, especially if you are in the mood for a spicy sweet love story all set in the sun and surf of Australia, is It’s Love, Dude, by Jenny Schwartz. I really loved this book. It’s cute, heart-warming and fun. At $2.69 on Amazon, what the heck are you waiting for? You can also find it at B&N.

Book details:

From our favourite short story writer comes a debut full-length novel about sand, sun, small towns, and surfing…

Zane Carlton is a World Champion surfer. Molly Georgiou is a shy, small-town girl. They have nothing in common except an instantaneous attraction and an impossible quest for a rare, endangered Australian marsupial. But Zane is determined to make it work, and invites Molly to take a step into his world. But Molly isn’t ready for the spotlights and attention — she loves her town, its quirks, its characters. Opposites attract, but can two such different people find both a woylie and forever?

TTAnother great bargain is the novella just out by frequent MM guest blogger Beverly Kendall, The Trap, which is only $1 at the moment on Amazon. What are you waiting for? :)

Book details:

Looking back, I should have seen it coming.

Paige didn’t like that I went so far away to university. But it was going to only be for two years. She’d join me after she did her two years at community college. I thought we could swing that no problem. We were solid.

But she hated the distance. She hated not seeing me every day. She complained that I didn’t come home enough. She hated that for months on end, texting and phone calls were our only form of communication. It wasn’t enough.

She’d ask about the girls on campus. She’d gotten it into her head that girls were always making a play for me. I laughed and told her, even if that were true, I’d never cheat on her. She didn’t seem completely reassured by that.

The bottom line is, Paige thought she was losing me. She wanted me home with her. But I could never imagine the level she’d sink to–the trap she’d set to make that happen.

And like an idiot I walked right into it.

And it’s a mistake I’m going to have to pay for the rest of my life.
