With no means to support herself, Ellie Kilmer agrees to work as a housekeeper for the young widower who lives on Dillon Island, hopeful she can obtain a proper reference. But Jackson Smith quickly realizes that Ellie’s presence may solve his own problems–both the rearing of his young boys and the scandal that surrounds his first marriage.
When a marriage of convenience is offered, Ellie is initially humiliated. Though she is past the age most women marry, she has more pride than to agree to his outlandish suggestion. Yet what options does she have? To marry would mean a home and stability. So despite the rumors circling Jackson and his first wife, Ellie accepts this unlikely proposal…

While I didn’t download the sample to get a head start on this book, I do like the idea that Amazon is making it available. Have any of you taken advantage of this early start while you wait on physical delivery?
 
Hardbound Recycle
recyclart.org-books-into-stool-600x400Are you cleaning out your bookshelves? Or do you frequent tag sales, garage sales or other events where you might acquire hardbound books for a great price? Here’s a suggestion for recycling those books into a charming piece that would be a wonderful addition to a home’s library, den or any room that welcomes a bit of whimsy.
As noted in the website where I found these, “The stools have wheels – but they are quite heavy, so they don’t slip away.” You can read the article here.

Delivery is October 4.
The Dispatcher Description: Zachary Quinto brings his well-earned sci-fi credentials and simmering intensity to this audio-exclusive novella from master storyteller John Scalzi.
One day, not long from now, it becomes almost impossible to murder anyone – 999 times out of a thousand, anyone who is intentionally killed comes back. How? We don’t know. But it changes everything: war, crime, daily life.
Tony Valdez is a Dispatcher – a licensed, bonded professional whose job is to humanely dispatch those whose circumstances put them in death’s crosshairs, so they can have a second chance to avoid the reaper. But when a fellow Dispatcher and former friend is apparently kidnapped, Tony learns that there are some things that are worse than death and that some people are ready to do almost anything to avenge a supposed wrong.
It’s a race against time for Valdez to find his friend before it’s too late…before not even a Dispatcher can save him.

Housekeeping: Reality and a few changes; Same and Different, Free short listen and Cheap read 10 comments

broom.panReality and a few changes
Seven summers. This is our seventh summer of bringing great reads at great prices to you. Way back in the beginning, we were rookie bloggers and the Kindle 2 was the hottest e-reader ever. The novelty of the device and having an unlimited number of books at the touch of a button fueled buying sprees.
The newness and novelty have passed. Most of us have calculated that we will have to live into our 100s to read our archive inventory. We now hover over that one-click buy button a bit longer before buying.
That’s the natural maturation of any emerging technology – boom, then a decline to a level point. Daily Cheap Reads has run the cycle. After a time of boom, our sales have declined and have leveled to a much lower amount than our glory days. Amazon has made changes to the commission structure and their aggressive direct marketing to Kindle book buyers have also contributed to the decline.
dailycr[1]Because of the declining revenue, we decided to make a changes to reclaim a few hours of our time each week. For now the changes will be small, such as no bold type or italics in posts starting tomorrow. (I might forget since I’ve been doing it for a very long time. Patience please.)
Another change is that Housekeeping posts during the month of August will be on the first and third Thursdays.That may become the regular schedule.
We appreciate each person who comes by to visit and purchase through our blog. We rely wholly on Amazon commissions as we do not to sell advertising space, giving you an uncluttered browsing experience.
Thanks for your continued support of our site!
 
The Same Book, Different Covers

The Kindle version of Brave the Heat is currently available free. If you download it, you can purchase the companion audiobook for $3.49.
Audible.com (right above) has a very different cover than Kindle. You have to wonder which one is the more accurate portrayal. The audiobook gives the idea of a small town, sweet romance. The one of the left is edgier and gives the impression of a spicy romance.

Cheap Delectable Mystery
A runaway international bestseller and winner of Spain’s top literary prize, Little Indiscretions is part ingeniously entertaining whodunit and part sparkling social satire. Buy it today for only 99 cents.
Little Indiscretions (99 cents) Business is slow for Nestor Chaffino, pastry chef to the rich and famous, until he’s invited to cater a party in a villa on the Costa del Sol. When Nestor is found frozen to death in a walk-in freezer with a notebook in his hand, the party guests gathered that evening are the natural suspects. But who could have it in for a harmless cook?
The answer, it turns out, is just about everyone who happens to be staying in the house.

To what lengths would they go to ensure that Nestor maintained a more permanent sense of discretion?
