I habitually post reviews of books I’ve enjoyed reading here. It you like them too, good on you! But publishing a book is hard work. So if you like any book here, I encourage you to post a review of it. It helps readers know there’s a good or interesting book out there, or at the very least, you’re recommending a reasonably good read to your friends who are as anxious to find a pleasurable read as you are!

So please, don’t be shy. As difficult as it may be for your to find a good, satisfying read, it’s even more difficult for an unknown author to find a reader who’s willing say, “Dang, that book was good.”

If  you didn’t like it, feel free to post that opinion, too. All views matter. And thank you, for reading the blog and my books.

Best wishes, Anna Drake.

 

Mud Pie, a Delightful Free Novel

Tags

, , , , , ,

Oh boy, I  have another free book to recommend. It’s Mud Pie, written by Emma Lee Dole. It’s cute. It’s fun. And it’s a decidedly complicated mystery. I could not figure out who “dun” it  until the very last minute, and I read a LOT of mysteries.

It’s set in England, near Manchester, and features a young cook, Lannie Herron, being chased by an evil bunch of young thugs. They want to kill her for exposing their drug dealing. She is fleeing in hopes of escaping their retribution.

(Mud Pie, by the way, is a dessert, although I can’t really describe it since I’ve never had it. But needless to say, Lannie makes a great one.)

So there she is working in some small pub, praying to escape detection and death. Who said survival was easy?

The e-book is an engaging read full of rugby players, flirtations, and narrow escapes. I truly enjoyed it, and since it ended with her future not fully spelled out, I suggest Dole use this as the first  book in a series of Lannie adventures. I’d certainly read them for whatever that’s worth.

Mud Pie is available FREE for Nook, iTunes, and Kobo. I downloaded my copy at Smashwords.

I cannot end this post without also mentioning Widowmere, which is also written by Emma Lee Dole, and is also FREE. I read it. I loved it. But this book is heavy on description which bothers me not a whit. In fact, I reveled in the language used to tell this story. This tale features an artist as a protagonist who is as far removed from Lannie as possible. She’s sensitive, observant, romantic, and charming.

Widowmere begins when a beautiful young woman fills her pockets with pebbles and walks into the lake as the artist is painting the scene. It is more of a  literary mystery, but that bothered me not at all. This book is also available from the above outlets. Enjoy!

The Last Violin, a Tender Tale

Two men missing. A woman who cares for their fate. The Last Violin, by J. M. Davis, is a touching short story perfect for a quick lunchtime read. The e-book will be available from most digital outlets. I downloaded my copy at Smashwords, where it is currently free.

 

From the blurb:

A violin and three gold coins hold the key to solving a sixty-eight-year-old mystery. Hundreds of people have traveled to a small Southern town in America in hopes of proving the young man found dead in the city park in 1911 was their long lost relative. Or were they trying to make a claim on the gold the young man supposedly hid before his death? A young woman believes everyone had it all wrong.
