Free Friday: COOMBE’S WOOD by Lisa C. Hinsley

 Where to download for free:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

The Back Cover:

Izzy Santana and her 13-year-old son Connor move into a Reading Council-provided flat in the sleepy village of Cedham. Locals darkly warn her to stay away from nearby Coombe’s Wood, hinting first at elves, then at multiple murders… which may or may not have taken place in the woods hundreds of years ago. It’s all ludicrously superstitious, and Izzy is so delighted to have found a haven for her son – after being threatened by her sadistic ex-partner George – that she takes little notice. 

She meets a neighbour who seems kindly, if a trifle fey, and who takes a great interest in her son. Connor seems instantly comfortable with him. She begins to feel as if she is also falling under his spell. But Connor is bullied at school, and one night she finds herself tracking those bullies in the wood, where she believes they are waiting for him. She doesn’t find them, but something closes in on her – something that sounds like a savage animal. As she runs she realises she may have been set up – or Connor was – to be caught by whatever the animal was. She strengthens the barricades in her flat, no longer puts all the local tales about ‘danger in them woods’ down to superstition, and even begins to wonder about the way she was selected by the Reading Council officer to live in the village in the first place. 

Then a slit rabbit turns up on her doorstep, along with a distinctive cigarette butt, and she knows George has found her. Desperately compassionate, her neighbour calls the police, who turn up next day, harumph the ceiling, and take the attitude: You’ve not been attacked, then, Miss? You haven’t actually seen him? Why, if your ex-lover has tracked you down, do you suppose he would he dump a rabbit at your door…? Her own question, more urgent, is: if George can get in the front door of the building, can he get into her flat? 

What Izzy needs to do is protect Connor. She has already started to uncover the ancient secrets of the village, and now she works out the perfect way to get rid of George… for good.

Free Friday: WHEN GRAVEYARDS YAWN by G. Wells Taylor

     Where to download for free:

Smashwords

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

The Back Cover:

 A dead lawyer enters the office of Wildclown Investigations and hires the detective to find his killer.  Wildclown and his dead sidekick Elmo soon find themselves entangled in a battle for control of a secret that offers either hope or doom for humanity. The case takes us to a unique setting that mixes gothic horror with the two-fisted pragmatism of a hard-boiled detective novel.

The first in The Apocalypse Trilogy, I chose When Graveyards Yawn for two reasons: one being that tomorrow is the first day of October, which is my favorite month of the whole year because I love everything Halloween, creepy, and scary and it’s my birthday month and two being that I read some really amazing reviews about the book. The premise is totally off the wall, as are the characters and it has been said that there is plenty of creep and even humor within the pages. I’m excited to read this one! Happy Reading!

Free Friday: FROM ASHES TO HONOR (First Responders) by Loree Lough

Where to download for free:

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

The “Back Cover”:

Minutes before two jumbo jets changed U.S. history, New York police officer Austin  Finley ignored the call from his brother, who’d been bugging him for days. Trying to live  with his one regret causes hatred and bitterness to consume Austin, and when counselor  Mercy Samara recommends desk duty, Austin resigns. Haunted by her own memories of  9/11, Mercy takes a job as a school counselor in Baltimore. When Austin, now an EMT,  responds to an emergency at Mercy’s school, both are stunned and wary.

 Finally their common—and painful—memories turn suspicion into friendship, then  romance.

But hard questions linger: Can they truly move beyond their past harsh judgments and harsh words? Will their past finally bring them closer or—as the tenth anniversary of 9/11 draws near—drive them farther apart?

 

In honor of the tenth anniversary of 9-11, I thought this freebie was fitting. I had read lots of great reviews and a heart warming story of something good that comes from something so terrible. I’m sure each and every one of us can remember where we were that day and the emotions that followed. Lets never forget!

As always, I would love to know what you thought of the read and am always taking suggestions! Happy Reading!

 

Free Friday: PLAY DEAD by Anne Frasier

Where to download for free: 

 Amazon

Barnes and Noble

Smashwords

The “Back Cover”:

From Publisher’s Weekly…

Frasier (Sleep Tight, etc.) has perfected the art of making a reader’s skin crawl, which is  evident from this book’s very first scene, in which a medical examiner discovers in the  midst of an autopsy that the cadaver he’s working on is really a live person. Set in  Savannah, Ga., this exceptional thriller follows the hunt for the deranged person who’s  drugging people so that their minds remain wide awake even as their bodies resemble  death. The creepiness factor increases when Frasier introduces homicide detective Elise Sandburg, who was abandoned in a cemetery as a baby and who knows Gullah spells and culture. Elise’s partner, anti-social David Gould, is equally strange; his past holds secrets so dark he should be under psychiatric care. Formerly with the FBI, Gould currently lives in a rundown, foul-smelling apartment and sleeps with a prostitute who works for a voodoo priestess. As the two detectives follow leads to the priestess and the former college professor who researched the drug, they forge a tentative bond and come to terms with their own troubled pasts. Frasier’s characters are not only fully realized, but fascinating to boot, and she evokes the dark, mystical side of Savannah with precision and skill. Appropriately, this unsettling tale closes with a grim children’s rhyme and a spell for “Elise’s Follow-Me-Boy Mojo.”

Lot’s of 4 and 5 star reviews for this book plus the fact that it sounds like an excellent, creepy read makes Play Dead this Friday’s free read. I might save this one till closer to Halloween! Would love to hear your thoughts after you have read it! Happy Reading!

The “Back Cover”:

A year has passed since Lucy Darby’s sudden and unexpected death, leaving her husband      David and son Whitley to mend the gaping hole in their lives and carry on. David, a trauma-site  cleanup technician, spends his nights expunging the violent remains of strangers, opting to help  others move on with their lives while he is unable to do the same. Whitley—a social pariah  known simply as The Kid—hasn’t spoken for the better part of a year. Instead, he communicates  through a growing collection of notebooks, living in a safer world of his own silent imagining. As the impending arrival of Y2K casts a shadow of uncertainty around them, their own precarious reality begins to implode. Questions pertaining to the events of Lucy’s death begin to haunt David, and he slowly begins to lose his grip on reality. On top of that, The Kid believes that his mother is still alive and out there somewhere waiting to come home. Enlisting the help of his misfit friends from school, he devises a plan to send her a message and bring her back. As David descends further into madness and The Kid’s sense of urgency grows, they are sent hurtling towards a stunning conclusion that will force both of them to confront reality.

Because I was out of town Friday I am posting this week’s Free for all Friday selection today :)

The Free Stuff on Friday’s

Each Friday I  post e-books that I find interesting that are ,well, just as the title says…FREE! Below you will find some things that I can and can’t guarantee…

1) I can guarantee that I will have a new selection for you EVERY SINGLE Friday. I promise to try my best but sometimes real life gets in the way  of my new favorite hobby…my blog ;)

2) I can’t guarantee HOW LONG the e-book will be free. That of course is up to the higher powers that are giving us the free. My recommendation is to get it within a few days of my post :)

3) I can guarantee you I will not just post for the Nook (as I am a Nook owner and lover). I will also have some from Amazon. Usually (but not always) if the same book is found on both sites, it is the same price. If not on the same day, in the next couple of days after. I will have links for all outlets that I can find the book so my readers don’t have to go searching.

4) I can’t guarantee you will like the read I post. I most likely have not read any of the selections, just merely think they sound interesting. So don’t hold it against me and quit reading my blog…seriously :) Hey, it’s FREE. If you don’t like it, delete it. Simple.

5) I can guarantee that if my readers have found a freebie read and enjoyed it and would like me to feature it I will gladly do that! Either send me an email at jennyerin1077(at)gmail(dot)com or leave a comment below. Please include your name (so I know who to thank for sharing), the full book title, author, and where I can find this great, free read.

Ok, I think that’s all I can think of. Please feel free to come back and let me know what you thought of a book after you read it. Happy Reading and Happy Friday!
