Another Free Kindle Book!

Don’t you just love these?

I mean, even if it turns out to be a book you don’t like…just delete it. It was free! I was always leary of buying a book I wasn’t sure I would like. And I love to discover new authors, so sometimes you just have to go by the title, the description and hope for the best!

This one looks lighthearted and fun ((As much as lighthearted can be for a murder mystery?!?Who me?)) But I’ll give it a shot! It’s called Getting Away Is Deadly!

I downloaded it this morning. I have no idea how long it will be “free” but as with all links that I upload, please check the price to see that it hasn’t reverted back to an actual COST before you download. Prices are subject to change at any time.

Book Description:

Air Force wife and professional organizer Ellie Avery goes to Washington, D.C., expecting some R&R while her pilot husband attends classes - but it's Ellie who gets a deadly lesson when this getaway turns out to be murder...

With swollen feet and swelling belly, pregnant Ellie bravely joins the nation's tourists in seeing the sights in Washington D.C. Husband Mitch has to attend military training, but as Ellie visits monuments and museums, she has other Air Force wives for company, including her best friend Abby. She also plans to catch-up with Mitch's scatter-brained sister Summer, who is finishing college while working as a nanny for a Washington media star, and do a personal favour for her favourite cousin.Factor in some serious shopping, and this sounds like a fun trip. But before she can take care of her cousin's request, the man she is supposed to meet breaks their date...because someone tried to kill him on his way to see her.

Is it a random mugging? Ellie almost buys that explanation. Then a fatal incident at the Metro station, Summer's furtive behaviour, and too many people telling lies, as well as keeping secrets, convince Ellie that something is rotten in the nation's capital. Should she do the safe thing and pack her bags? Not likely when Ellie Avery is just the right woman to clean up the most mysterious cases of murder.

It might turn up at Barnes & Noble as free in the future, but right now it’s running at $9.99 there. Keep watching if you have a nook. I don’t have one, so that’s why my posts usually revolve around free kindle books!

SO! Guess what it is doing here today? Yes, in the beautiful state of North Carolina, where just last Wednesday I was running around Raleigh in SHORT SLEEVES with no sweater soaking up that bright warm yellow thing full of vitamin D called SUNSHINE?!? It’s..*cough*….SNOWING. Annoyed Thumbs down

Granted --- It’s wet and heavy and it’s too warm out there for it to stick, but the roads are slushy and wet and it has made my running to the gym and the bank and all the other errands I’ve run for my usual Monday be just a bit of a downer!lincoln lawyer

Yesterday DH and I wandered out to see an afternoon matinee. We saw “Lincoln Lawyer” and I really enjoyed it! ((But then what’s not to like about Matthew Mccouuughhnennnahhhehghhay?? Flirt male --yeah, I can’t spell it, but who can?!?)) It had a bit of a predictable courtroom drama type plot, but it did keep you engaged, and it wasn’t overly bloody, leaves you rooting for the good guys and booing for the bad guys and it was a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

A trip after that to Lowes for assorted household objects including a new dehumidifier in prep for the coming humid season ---This one is for the sunroom and the storage area beyond it, it just gets heavy-aired in there---and we spent the evening just doing little of nothing. Nice.

I love Mondays! It means a brand new week, a clean slate! Wishing y’all a great week!


  1. Right now B&N ebook for my Nook is 99 cents.
    Thanks for another tip.

  2. I ran right on over to Amazon and got the book right away I have liked the last several that you mentioned. Thanks. I have not seen the Lincoln Lawyer but I read the book ages ago - I would like to see it - I wonder how close to the book they followed. I read all of Michael Connely's books.

  3. Just downloaded the book - thanks for the heads up. I would like to see that movie too - who doesn't love Matthew what-ever-his-name is...

  4. I love to read and free books can't be beat but how is reading on a kindle? I'm not sure I could get used to it.

  5. Thanks for the tip...I caught that one in time. I missed the last one. Mysteries are my favorite. I do not have the kindle but got it for my laptop. It was FREE!

  6. Thank you for the tip on the free book! I have the app on my ipod and love being able to take it along and have something to read whenever I want.


  7. Thanks for the tip on the book, I have a few I haven't read yet but they are there when I'm ready. I read them with the kindle app on my Ipod touch. I was surprised how easy it is to read on and so handy I have a book whenever I need one such as when the hubby stops at an autoparts or Rv store and looks for an hour. I can go sit and read and he can be as long as he wants. Hope your snow goes quickly; have a great week. Arley(Sooke BC)

  8. Bonnie, I had to laugh at your spelling of Matthew McConaughey's name... the proper spelling is about 1.5 inches above on the photo of the poster...

    It must be that white stuff falling from the sky...

    I watched "Grown Ups" last night with my son while trimming HSTs and I must admit, I would have trimmed many more HSTs had I NOT been watching... Hilarious Movie. If you want to watch a comedy, I highly recommend it.
