Literary Pursuits

Friday Freebies

And quick as that, it’s Friday again! Time for another list of free ebooks for your Kindle. I’m currently between books myself, so let’s see what’s available today.

Usual Disclosure: These are affiliate links which means I may earn a small commission on your Amazon purchase. Featured titles were all free when I listed them, but please double-check before you download them.

Raspberries and Vinegar

Update: No longer free, but available to borrow on Kindle Unlimited.

Raspberries and Vinegar by Valerie Comer is part of the Farm Fresh Romance series, which is a related series to the two books from the Urban Farm Fresh Romance series I shared a few weeks ago.

“An opinionated local-food advocate falls in love with the junk-food-loving reluctant farmer next door.”

Both the title and the cover appeal to me. I peeked at the first few pages and it’s got a border collie puppy… dawww… plus it takes place here in north Idaho! Yeah, I’ll be reading this one soon.

The Enchanted Barn

Update: No longer free.

The Enchanted Barn by Grace Livingston Hill popped up as a freebie this week. It’s one of my favorite GLH novels. If you aren’t familiar with it, check out my review.

“After the Hollister family is faced to relocate to the country, their eldest daughter Shirley manages to rent an old stone barn from a wealthy landlord. Slowly and gradually with their simple acts of kindness and unconventional living the landlord is won over. “

Whiter Than Snow

Update: No longer free, but available to borrow on Kindle Unlimited.

Whiter Than Snow by Yvonne Lehman is part of the Finding Love in the Blue Ridge Mountains. I’ve shared a couple of her books from her Finding Love in the Low Country series previously. I’m not sure if the series are connected. I think they may have been previously published as part of an inspirational paperback romance series back in the day. Here’s the synopsis for this one:

“Jennifer Collins, with a broken arm and cracked ribs. is trapped in her home by the blizzard of the century. Without power or telephone service, and with gale-force winds threatening to tear the roof off her trembling house, she waits for help. Assistance comes in the form of Rick Jenkins, a volunteer fireman with search-and-rescue certification. Rick seeks to take her to a shelter, but when a toppling tree crashes his truck, Rick and Jennifer must concentrate on simply staying alive until other help can arrive.”

Emergency Case

Update: No longer free, but available to borrow on Kindle Unlimited.

Emergency Case by Richard L. Mabry is a legal/medical thriller. It’s a novella (short novel) so should be a quick weekend read.

“Dr. Kelly Irving knew her husband, attorney Jack Harbaugh, was acting strangely, but figured they’d get through it. When she backed out of her garage that morning, she thought her car hit a bump. Instead, its progress was stopped by the body of a man her husband recently represented. Not only that, the dead man had been shot by her husband’s gun. The police who investigated made it clear that Jack was a primary suspect.”

Shelter

Update: No longer free, but available to borrow on Kindle Unlimited.

I picked up Shelter by Robin Merrill because I’ve read a couple other books by her and enjoyed them. Also, the premise piqued my interest:

“…she headed out into the blizzard. In a car that wasn’t exactly hers, with a dog who wasn’t exactly a rat terrier, she drove. Until she ran out of gas in the small Maine town of Mattawooptock. Mattawoopwhat? What on earth is God thinking? But it is there, in a weird little bathroom in a weird little church in a weird little town that Maggie Hansen finds herself. And as God would have it, she finds a lot more than that.”

Moondrop Miracle

Update: No longer free, but available to borrow on Kindle Unlimited.

The gorgeous vintage-style cover of Moondrop Miracle by Jennifer Lamont Leo is what first caught my attention. We’ve already established that I often judge books by their covers. An amateurish cover on a self-published book indicates to me that the author may not have had it professionally edited either. Whether that’s always true or not, I tend to avoid those. Anyway, besides the beautiful cover design, the plot also intrigues me:

“Chicago, 1928. Pampered socialite Connie Shepherd lives the kind of glossy life other women read about in the society pages. Engaged to a handsome financier, she spends her days and nights in a dizzying social round. When eccentric Aunt Pearl, an amateur chemist, offers her an unusual wedding present—the formula for a home-brewed skin tonic—Connie laughs it off. But when the Great Depression flings her privileged world into chaos and rocks her marriage to the core, will Aunt Pearl’s strange gift provide the key to survival for Connie and her baby?”

That’s it for this week. If you missed my previous lists of free ebooks check out these posts. I’ve updated them to indicate which titles are still free.

Have a great week!

I look forward to reading your comments. Thanks for joining in the conversation! ~Karla
