The first book in Jen William's second trilogy, The Ninth Rain is currently free - yes FREE! - on Kindle, Kobo and iBooks (maybe more, not sure!).

 

Ooh, I've just read the first couple of paragraphs and it looks really good. Thanks for the heads up. :)

^ She's very good.  Not got around to reading this one yet, getting it for free should spur me on!

Just bought part three of Paul Cornell's Shadow Police series, Who Killed Sherlock Holmes, for £1.19 (it's one of the sci-fi fantasy novels on offer this month that I referred to above!).

Patricia Wentworth

 

Lots of the Miss Silver mystery books are available for 99p - I`ve just taken 6 of them. I`ve read maybe 15 of them previously ; they`re Golden Age mysteries, a bit like a 1930`s Mary Stewart. :)

Ooh, I’m tempted with these! I’ve got a few Patricia Wentworth kindle books, but not any of the Miss Silver yet. And I loved Mary Stewart’s Madam, will you talk? These have luscious cover art too :D

Maybe read an excerpt and see how you like it ? The books have a retired Edwardian governess who sets herself up as an investigator, and ( usually ) have a woman in her 20s who gets drawn into a mystery and a romance. They're a nice read, though I wouldn't put them in the same class as authors like Margery Allingham or Ngaio Marsh. I do enjoy them enough to want to eventually read all of them though. :)

Also free atm for US Kindle.


It's not free for me for some reason, but maybe for those in the US (and UK) it is free :).

I'm into this type of genre at the moment (well more of an obsession really :blush:) I just "live" in a fantasy book world of the 1930 and 40s! :D. I loved Allingham's short stories. So I bought a couple of Patricia Wentworth's 99p too.

Hurray ! I have a long-running obsession with the American 30`s/40`s cosy mysteries - Richard and Frances Lockridge, Frances Crane, Stuart Palmer, Torrey Chanslor...:)

Six of SJ Rozan`s Lydia Chin/ Bill Smith PI books are available for 99p atm ( I`ve read the first 4 in the series and loved them ; I`ve just taken books 6-11 :) ).

 

They`re more expensive in the US. :(
