Friday Freebies

Several of the titles in this week’s selection of Kindle freebies have tie-ins with places we visited on our Big Adventure this summer. This is why I love to travel. I find it interesting to visit places or learn more about cultures I’ve read about… or to read about places I’ve visited.

Behind the Light of Golowduyn

Update: No longer free.

Behind the Light of Golowduyn is a Cornish Regency romance about a lighthouse keeper.

Side note that probably has nothing to do with the book: Did you know the Michigan pasties that we tried a few weeks ago originated in Cornwall?

Dead Wrong

Dead Wrong by Vannetta Chapman is a cozy mystery, Book 1 of the Agatha’s Amish B&B series.

And that vaguely ties in with our visit to Shipshewana, Indiana.

The Executions

The Executions by Sarah Elisabeth Sawyer is Book 1 of the Choctaw Tribune series and takes place in the 1890s in Oklahoma.

We didn’t drive through the Choctaw reservation on our Oklahoma road trip this summer, but it’s actually less than an hour away from where we live now.

In a Grove of Maples

Update: No longer free.

In a Grove of Maples by Jenny Knipfer is Book 1 of the Sheltering Trees series set in Wisconsin, also in the 1890s.

As we passed through the young forests of Minnesota and Wisconsin where the “big woods” once stood we talked about the massive logging that happened back in that era.


Update: No longer free.

Awakening by Tracy Higley is a thriller set in New York (with ties to ancient Greece) and an amnesia theme.

No connections to any of my travels this summer but the description intrigues me. Also, I’ve read other books by Tracy Higley in the past.

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