Kindle Deals

Burn Baby Burn cover imageThis was so good and while it’s a coming-of-age story it’s set during the summer of Sam in New York and the tension between that and the volatile situation at home I think makes this a great read for fans of crime novels: Burn Baby Burn by Meg Medina is $1.99 –seriously, two dollars get this! ( I don’t remember trigger warnings but here’s my review.)

A very good legal thriller that is LITERALLY FREE, GET IT AND READ IT: Every Reasonable Doubt (Vernetta Henderson #1) by Pamela Samuels Young

From my cozy mystery TBR list: Dead As a Door Knocker by Diane Kelly is $2.99

From my thriller TBR list: The Third Victim by Phillip Margolin is $1.99
