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 might vary.

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.

A Girl Made of Air by Nydia Hetherington

This is the story of The Greatest Funambulist Who Ever Lived…

Born into a post-war circus family, our nameless star was unwanted and forgotten, abandoned in the shadows of the big top. Until the bright light of Serendipity Wilson threw her into focus.

Pippo and Clara by [Diana Rosie]

Pippo & Clara by Diana Rosie

A country torn apart by war. Two siblings divided by fate.

Italy, 1938. Mussolini is in power and war is not far away . . .

When Mamma goes missing early one morning, both Clara and Pippo go in search of her. Clara turns right; Pippo left.

As a result of the choices they make that morning, their lives will be changed forever.

A Spanish Lover by Joanna Trollope

TWO LIVES INTERTWINED AND SEEMINGLY HARMONIOUS. ONE DECISION THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING.

Lizzie and Frances are twins, together forming part of a unit. Or at least that’s the way Lizzie sees things. Lizzie is the twin who has everything: husband, children, a flourishing career and a beautiful house. She worries about Frances, who seems to lead a solitary life in London, ricocheting from one disastrous man to the next. Lizzie just wants Frances to have a complete and satisfying life, just like hers.

Then one day Frances announces she isn’t coming to Lizzie’s for Christmas as usual – she’s going to Spain instead.
Suddenly and equally unexpectedly, Lizzie’s world begins to tilt. Frances’s Christmas defection seems overwhelmingly threatening to their unity.

As Frances’s future begins to change into something exciting and Lizzie’s deteriorates as financial pressures eat into her ideal lifestyle, long held assumptions are called into question.


The Stranger Times: (The Stranger Times 1) by [C.K.McDonnell]

The Stranger Times by C K McDonnell

There are dark forces at work in our world (and in Manchester in particular), so thank God The Stranger Times is on hand to report them . . .

A weekly newspaper dedicated to the weird and the wonderful (but mostly the weird), it is the go-to publication for the unexplained and inexplicable.

At least that’s their pitch. The reality is rather less auspicious. Their editor is a drunken, foul-tempered and foul-mouthed husk of a man who thinks little of the publication he edits. His staff are a ragtag group of misfits. And as for the assistant editor . . . well, that job is a revolving door – and it has just revolved to reveal Hannah Willis, who’s got problems of her own.

When tragedy strikes in her first week on the job The Stranger Times is forced to do some serious investigating. What they discover leads to a shocking realisation: some of the stories they’d previously dismissed as nonsense are in fact terrifyingly real. Soon they come face-to-face with darker forces than they could ever have imagined.

A girl is taken from the streets of Oxford. But it’s unlike any abduction DI Fawley’s seen before . . .

What’s more, when DC Erica Somer interviews Faith, she quickly becomes convinced that Faith knows who her abductor is.

Yet Faith refuses to press charges.

Without more evidence, it’s looking like the police may have to drop the case.

But what happens if Faith’s attacker strikes again?
