First off, A very happy happy birthday wish going out to my brother, Rick! Rick was born when I was 15, and I remember his birth so vividly! He has a special place in my heart, he and I are two of a kind, and the further we get into our middle age years, the more we have in common! I love you baby, bro --- Hope your day is wonderful! ((Pic from my 2009 visit to Idaho.))
Where are we now? As this posts we are just completing our first workshop day at sea!! Class goes from 9am til noon, with a 2 hour break for lunch, resuming our sewing at 2pm and we go til 5! After that, it’s go change into something nice for dinner, and meet everyone up in the dining room ---
I’ll get LOTS of pictures! ((Yes, I can hear you grumbling from where you sit right now…pictures?! Either you love them or hate them, and I love them!))
Tomorrow is a class day as well, and then we hit our first port of call, San Juan, Puerto Rico around 3pm on Sunday Afternoon!
So on to our freebie book! It was free when I set this post to go live in the queue, I’m just hoping it is still free now! I downloaded this one for DH --- I think it’s one he’d enjoy reading. If it is too chic-bookie for him, I'm happy to read it myself!

Welcome to the beach–Virginia Beach to be precise.
The latest murder of a young woman in Virginia Beach has shaken both of his worlds. The FBI is in on the case for reasons they will not fully explain to Press. Determined to find the killer and cooperate with the beautiful FBI agent assigned to the case,
Press juggles the two sides of his life, but may find it is more than he can handle this time. Detective Preston Andrews (Press to his friends) comes from wealthy Virginia Society with a capital “S”. He is a man admired by women for his handsome face and well-toned physique. Men respect his opinion and skill on the job. Crooks cringe at his tough attitude and tenacity.
Despite his refusal to accept the FBI’s efforts to recruit him, he remains with the Virginia State Police as their senior detective.
His career is a great success–much to his father’s dismay. U.S. Senator Andrews would prefer his son go into Foreign Service or politics.
A year ago, Press helped the FBI solve the East coast’s worse series of murders since The Boston Strangler. He carries the bullet wound to prove it.
His personal life is a mess. His younger sister won’t speak to him (his own fault), his live-in girl friend moved out, his parents are disappointed in his career choice, and the 180 lb. dog, Jones, who shares his beachfront mansion has failed multiple attempts at obedience training.
A young girl’s murder brings these aspects of his life all crashing together.
I especially was intrigued by this review:
Linda's Preston Andrews series delivers for those who want mysteries that shock and entertain, and never fail to take you to the unexpected. Once in a while a strong character comes along and you are willing to see the world through his eyes - and it changes everything! Preston Andrews is one of a kind.
As always, double check the price before clicking, just because it was free for me on Wednesday morning when I wrote this post, doesn’t mean it still is on Friday afternoon, right? Right! But hopefully it is for you!
