And One For The Road!


I swear, I can’t resist these!

As I was downloading yesterday’s free book to my kindle, the little ad thing at the bottom showed me “other titles I might like” And this one came up as free as well!

I know I’ve posted a lot of foo foo light stuff lately, but occasionally I do like to get into more intrigue and who-done-it kind of books!

DH has taken to reading books on his iphone, and I thought this would be one he would also like!

A World I Never Made, by James Lepore, is free on Kindle and from Sony.


Book Description


Pat Nolan, an American man, is summoned to Paris to claim the body of his estranged daughter Megan, who has committed suicide. The body, however, is not Megan's and it becomes instantly clear to Pat that Megan staged this, that she is in serious trouble, and that she is calling to him for help.

This sends Pat on an odyssey that stretches across France and into the Czech Republic and that makes him the target of both the French police and a band of international terrorists. Joining Pat on his search is Catherine Laurence, a beautiful but tormented Paris detective who sees in Pat something she never thought she'd find--genuine passion and desperate need. As they look for Megan, they come closer to each other's souls and discover love when both had long given up on it.

Juxtaposed against this story is Megan's story. A freelance journalist, Megan is in Morocco to do research when she meets Abdel Lahani, a Saudi businessman. They begin a torrid affair, a game Megan has played often and well in her adult life. But what she discovers about Lahani puts her in the center of a different kind of game, one with rules she can barely comprehend. Because of her relationship with Lahani, Megan has made some considerable enemies. And she has put the lives of many--maybe even millions--at risk.

A World I Never Made is an atmospheric novel of suspense with brilliantly drawn characters and back-stories as compelling as the plot itself. It is the kind of novel that resonates deeply and leaves its traces long after you turn the final page.

  3. Don't resist - keep the freebies coming Bonnie! ;) Sounds like a really good story with lots of complex characters and background history with each of them.

    Glad I have both NOOK and Kindle aps for my phone and netbook... This is a great deal while it lasts b/c I checked and B&N's nook price is $14.97. That's approximately 2 yards of fabric! :P

    Enjoy your trip!! Love from Texas! ~bonnie

  4. I love the free books. Get all that look remotely interesting. Have only bought 2 at this point. I decided that it will be the same as going to the library when I actually quit quilting and start reading!

  10. I deleted my earlier popst because I gave the wrong name for the book I'm reading. Here's the corrected comment.

    You are hopeless. And so am I. Just downloaded 4 freebies. I'm going to have to take a slow boat to Kalamazoo in order read all the books loading up on my Kindle. I'm reading Paper Roses now, also a free download. Not bad.

  11. I don't know if I have asked you this already or not but is there a newsletter you get to notify you of the free Kindle books? Or do you just check each day on the special page?
    I check as often as I can but you seem to have found a couple that I did not.
    Thanks
