Free (Kindle/Kobo UK) A Night In With Audrey Hepburn [Chick-Lit Magic Realism Comedy]

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:08:59 GMT

*A Night In With Audrey Hepburn* by Wimbledon-resident British author Lucy Holliday, a pseudonym for YA sf novelist Angela Woolfe (ISFDB (http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/ea.cgi?34140)), is the 1st novel in her A Night In With series of contemporary chick-lit nostalgic humour with magical realism and f/m romantic comedy elements starring an aspiring actress who turns to the classic Hollywood stars of the past (who actually appear to her in some fashion) for inspiration, this installment featuring the spirit (whether ghostly or merely hallucinatory) of Audrey Hepburn showing up to guide her at an especially low point in her life, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher HarperCollins's uncollinated Harper imprint. For some reason this is filed under Time Travel Romance in the Amazon listings, but the customer reviews would seem to indicate that this is a slightly wrong categorization, unless the heroine gets a lot more hands-on love life guidance from the spirit of Audrey Hepburn than one would normally expect. Also, the concept of it looks pretty nifty and a nice way to stand out from the usual chick-lit crowd, although I may be somewhat biased since Audrey Hepburn has been my dad's third-favourite classic Hollywood actress for ages (first place goes to Maureen O'Hara, whose films I admit I have never seen, and second place is someone whose name I've completely forgotten). :2thumbsup Currently free @ Amazon UK (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Night-Audrey-Hepburn-Book-ebook/dp/B00Q28GY9A/}) & iTunes UK (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/a-night-in-with-audrey-hepburn/id949587607?mt=11) & Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Lucy_Holliday_A_Night_In_With_Audrey_Hepburn_A_Nig?id=H0mTBQAAQBAJ) & Kobo (https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/a-night-in-with-audrey-hepburn-a-night-in-with-book-1) (available to the UK, but decidedly unfree in the other regions I spot-checked, though YMMV) ETA: If you happen to like the cover art, it turns out you can read a piece written by the designer about her ideas and inspirations for illustrating the series here on the HarperCollins Design blog (http://harpercollins-design.tumblr.com/post/121024571329/a-night-in-with-the-designer-jane-harwood). *Description* Unlucky in love, failed actress Libby Lomax has retreated into the world of classic movies, where the immortal lives of the screen goddesses offer so much more in the way of romance than her own life. After a terrible day where she has embarrassed herself in front of heartthrob actor Dillon O’Hara, she plonks herself down on her battered couch in front of her trillionth viewing of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Libby is gobsmacked to find actual Screen Icon, Audrey Hepburn, sitting beside her. Dressed in her little black dress, wearing her trademark sunglasses, Audrey offers advice to the hapless Libby between ladylike puffs on her vintage cigarette holder. Has Libby got what it takes to turn her life from a Turkey to a Blockbuster? With a little bit of Audrey Hepburn magic, she might just pull it off…



Free (Kindle/Kobo/iTunes UK) Random by Craig Robertson [Award-Nom Police Procedural]

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:05:35 GMT

*Random* by UK author Craig Robertson (SYKM (http://www.stopyourekillingme.com/R_Authors/Robertson_Craig.html)) is the 1st novel in his Tony Winter series of police procedural mysteries co-starring the eponymous police photographer and a Detective Sergeant in Glasgow, Scotland, this installment establishing their working relationship by pitting them versus the obligatory senseless-seeming serial killer with a signature, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Simon & Schuster UK. This is the featured Free Book of the Week in the iTunes UK store, and was a finalist for the 2010 New Blood Dagger Award for debut novels. Currently free (probably just until Tuesday UK time, when the features usually rotate) @ Amazon UK (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Random-terrifying-highly-inventive-thriller-ebook/dp/B003FHMHS8/}) & iTunes UK (https://itunes.apple.com/gb/book/random/id389514493?mt=11) & Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/books/details/Craig_Robertson_Random?id=jDP60EJ0qDEC) & Kobo (https://www.kobo.com/gb/en/ebook/random-2) (available to the UK, and none of the other regions I spot-checked, though YMMV) *Description* Glasgow is being terrorised by a serial killer the media have nicknamed The Cutter. The murders have left the police baffled. There seems to be neither rhyme nor reason behind the killings; no kind of pattern or motive; an entirely different method of murder each time, and nothing that connects the victims except for the fact that the little fingers of their right hands have been severed. If DS Rachel Narey could only work out the key to the seemingly random murders, how and why the killer selects his victims, she would be well on her way to catching him. But as the police, the press and a threatening figure from Glasgow's underworld begin to close in on The Cutter, his carefully-laid plans threaten to unravel - with horrifying consequences. Brilliant crime fiction for fans of Stuart MacBride and Ian Rankin, Random is Craig Robertson's debut thriller and was shortlisted for the CWA New Blood Dagger. Look out for the new novel In Place of Death.

Learn how you too can lay down this burden and find rest in surrendering to the One who truly is in control.

This is B&N's featured Free Fridays selection, but unlike most of the ORM non-PD freebies we've gotten in the past, seems not to be available in all the US stores this time around, and is only price-matched at Amazon so far. Currently free, probably just for one day like other Open Road freebies, but possibly through the weekend as other B&N Free Fridays have been @ B&N (http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/heiress-janet-dailey/1102956738?ean=9781497615823) & Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/Heiress-Janet-Dailey-ebook/dp/B00J52FMNO/) (not available to Canadians).

Standing over her father’s coffin, Abbie Lawson wonders if he ever actually loved her. Yes, he’d given her wealth, a place in the top echelon of Houston society, and horses—a farm full of Arabians—but not his attention. On those important family occasions, he was always away on business in California. And then Abbie sees why . . . On the fringe of the crowd of mourners at the funeral is a woman whose face nearly mirrors her own—a second daughter. And, as if that betrayal isn’t enough, she discovers that her father has left his money to the interloper. Abbie has the Arabians, but not the money to support them. As she witnesses her rival’s rise in the Texas social scene, a tall, rough-hewn oil man named MacCrea Wilder enters her life. She doesn’t need the distraction, but there’s something about his sinewy arms that keeps her mind circling back to his kiss. Yet, as the years pass, even love may be sacrificed to the bitterness between these two women. With over 300 million books sold, Janet Dailey is one of the great names in fiction. In Heiress, she tells the story of half sisters trapped in a bitter rivalry, providing the “solid entertainment” that made her famous (Publishers Weekly).

Free (Kindle) The Bandaged Riders by Gordon Landsborough [Town Takeover Western]

Thu, 16 Feb 2017 06:53:21 GMT

*The Bandaged Riders* by the late British author Gordon Landsborough (Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gordon_Landsborough)), a prolific and pioneering multi-genre pulp fiction writer and publisher, is his vintage standalone western historical action adventure novel set in the aftermath of the US Civil War, as one entrepreneurial outlaw decides to unscrupulously take advantage of the post-war situation by declaring himself empowered to take over a town and remake it with the help of like-minded fellows, whether the inhabitants like it or not, and the amnesiac wandering gunslinger veteran who is the town's only hope of salvation, who cannot remember which side of the war he fought on, but is dedicated to the cause of justice nonetheless, free for a limited time courtesy of publisher Endeavour Press, who are e-printing it from its 1954 edition originally out from Hamilton & Co. as #130 in their Panther Books line using the Mike M'Cracken pseudonym.

These men had fought on no side in the Civil War, but had instead battened on the defenceless old people left at home. One such unscrupulous man, Reuben Slatt, along with his ragged scallawag followers, had a better idea. Why not adopt the flag of the victors and take over and run a town... for their own benefit? Why not bleed the town dry and shoot as traitors any Southerner who dared lift a hand against them? A great idea in theory. But trouble lay ahead… One man was not willingly to simply stand by and see defenceless people exploited and murdered. A man of resource and high courage. A man who was unafraid to use a gun for a just cause, with the charisma and motivation to encourage others to do the same. And yet this man knew nothing about himself. He could not even remember which side he had fought on in the Civil War, for he had lost his memory. Will this mysterious figure bring justice to the west?

Natal, South Africa Beautiful, free-spirited Sannie Riverwild has returned from years of schooling in Cape Town to find that little has changed in her home of Natal — including Pieter du Plessis, her childhood sweetheart who promised to love her forever. Her own devotion remains unshaken, and she dreams of the day that she and Pieter will become one and make all of her dreams come true. Two years later, Sannie’s feelings are no longer as clear as they were upon her return to Natal, and with the arrival of charming, dark-haired Scot Colin Stewart, she becomes even less certain of her feelings. But trouble will not stop for Sannie’s conflicted heart. Even the picturesque Natal is not exempt from the continuous expansion of Queen Victoria’s British Empire and the country is soon in crippling agony. As bold as any pioneer, and fiercely devoted to those she loves, Sannie is prepared to go to the ends of the earth to protect her family — and their land. For in Natal, the land is their promise, their power, and in their destiny. From the deep oceans of grass to the towering purple mountains, the colonists and Zulu warriors clash in bloodstained battle… Despite being surrounded by increasing conflict and turmoil, it is the war within that consumes the reckless Sannie, whose love and memories of Pieter, the lean, blue-eyed soldier who claimed her soul, and Colin, the handsome Scot who stole her heart, clash against each other. United against a shared enemy, divided by a shared love, they are hers to cherish and to command — until the day that she must choose once and for all…

Og hvad med det, vi ikke ved noget om eller ikke ved, at vi ikke ved? For slet ikke at nævne alt det, vi ikke må vide? Heldigvis kan Kristian Hvidtfelt Nielsen, vidende videnskabshistoriker ved Aarhus Universitet, gøre os klogere på alt det, der er værd at vide. Bare ikke lige, hvordan vi cykler.
