Jill’s Friday Kindle Steals

Instead of doing a monthly Kindle post I’m going to see how it goes spreading the deals over the month and also picking up on shorter term offers. Consequently the number of books on offer each day will vary and occasionally might include only one.

As usual the choices will reflect books that I’d be tempted by and not just any books that are on offer.

The price quoted is that given at time of posting, please always check before buying as some prices can change quickly.

This decision is also a result of Facebook having made my existing Jill’s Book Cafe Page into a separate entity from my personal page. This is a problem if I’m using a tablet (my normal medium) as I am forced to access it via the app. As this no longer links allows me to post directly from Amazon I have to copy and paste the details over, by going in and out of the app each time. The whole process is getting tedious, plus the Facebook algorithms mean that fewer people are actually seeing the posts anyway. This way, the post goes directly to Facebook, but also to Twitter so it becomes more visible. Time wise it might become unworkable but I’ll see how it goes.

Feedback always appreciated, especially as many of you will already be signed up to other offer sites and don’t want another ‘deal’ post clogging up your email each day.

The Most Fun We Ever Had by Claire Lombardo

MEET THE SORENSON FAMILY
MARILYN has somehow fallen into motherhood and spent four decades married to
DAVID, who’s pretty certain he loves her more than anyone has ever loved another person.
WENDY, their eldest, a cause for concern, soothes herself with drink after being widowed young,
while VIOLET, lawyer-turned-stay-at-home-mother, is disturbed by the reappearance of a son placed for adoption fifteen years earlier.
LIZA, a professor, is pregnant with a baby she’s not sure she wants by a man she’s not sure she loves
and GRACE, their dawdling youngest daughter, lives a lie that no one in her family suspects.


Christmas at the Crescent by Veronica Henry (novella)

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…

It’s only a month until Christmas and Josie Ballard is up to her ears in brandy, raisins and cherries as she battles to make forty Christmas pudding to sell at Bath Christmas market!

Ever since Giles walked out the day their baby son, Titus, was born, Josie has had to work twice as hard to make ends meet – and she can barely keep up with demand for her famous steamed puddings. Even worse, her handsome new neighbour, Harry, is proving quite a distraction.

Meanwhile, Giles is starting to wonder whether he made a terrible mistake in abandoning Josie and Titus – it turns out the grass isn’t always greener. And with one party blurring into another, he decides it’s finally time to head home to Pelham Crescent for the holidays.

But the last thing Giles expected was to find newcomer Harry on Josie’s doorstep!

Christmas just got complicated…


Suffer the Children by Cheryl Rees-Price

When Natalie Benyon’s eighteen-month-old daughter Ella disappears from a housing estate, the police and local community act quickly to organise a search.

Given the age of the child, once the local area is scoured, DI Winter Meadows draws the frightening conclusion that Ella has been abducted.

The attention of the police focuses on the family itself: the lifestyle of the mother, the boyfriend, the raucous party they had the night before Ella’s disappearance.

And a search in their garden reveals a chilling discovery that turns the case upside down and sends a shockwave through the community.

All of a sudden Meadows has a murder case on his hands – one that threatens to side-line the search for Ella. Can the detective join up the dots, solve the case and find the child?


The Winemaker’s Wife by Kristin Harmel

East of Paris in the sun-drenched vineyards of northern France lies the glamorous champagne house Maison Chauveau. But as the Nazis march closer and the Resistance builds strength, it becomes clear the grand house is not all it seems.

1940: When young Ines married into the famed Chauveau family she dreamt of peace and luxury. But with German occupation comes a life of fear: for herself, for family and friends joining the Resistance and for Celine, the Jewish wife of their chief vintner. As tensions mount and loyalties are tested, Ines will be faced with a terrible choice.

2019: Liv Kent has lost everything: her job, her husband and the family she thought they were building. Alone and adrift she leaps at the chance to join her eccentric grandmother on a trip to Champagne. But it’s not long before past and present collide, and in a desperate search for the truth, Liv is led straight to the Maison Chauveau.


Sugar by Bernice L McFadden

Soon Bigelow is alight with gossip and suspicion, and Sugar fears her past is catching up with her. Then she meets Pearl, a woman trying to forget her own traumas. As these next-door neighbours become unlikely friends, they wonder if their lives could finally be changing for the better. But small towns have long memories…


The Whole Truth by Cara Hunter

An attractive student. An older professor.

Think you know the story? Think again.

She has everything at stake; he has everything to lose. But one of them is lying, all the same.

When an Oxford student accuses one of the university’s professors of sexual assault, DI Adam Fawley’s team think they’ve heard it all before. But they couldn’t be more wrong.

Because this time, the predator is a woman and the shining star of the department, and the student a six-foot male rugby player.

Soon DI Fawley and his team are up against the clock to figure out the truth. What they don’t realise is that someone is watching.

And they have a plan to put Fawley out of action for good…
