Friday Freebies

What have you been reading lately? Do you tend to stick with a particular genre? I tend to be a mood reader, myself. I like to load up my Kindle with a variety of books that appeal to me and then when I get ready to start a new book I have lots to choose from, depending on my mood.

We won’t talk about how many books I usually have going at once. Hint: I can’t count them on one hand, which is a little ridiculous.

In any case, here are a few more I added to my TBR collection this week.

Among Sand and Sunrise

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

An archaeology story set at the turn-of-the-century (the last century, not this one) is the premise of Among Sand and Sunrise by Stacy Henrie. It is Book 3 of An American Heiress series, but it looks it could stand-alone without having previously read the other two.

Carbon 14: The Shroud of Turin

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

For a contemporary archaeological story with more of a suspense plot I’m looking forward to trying Carbon 14: The Shroud of Turin by R. A. Williams. It is Book 1 of the Amari Johnston series.

Sarah’s Smile

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

Sarah’s Smile by Dawn Kinzer is also set at the turn-of-the-1900-century, about a missionary and a pastor. It is Book 1 of the Daughters of Riverton series.

I met Dawn at the most recent writer’s conference I went to in Seattle (in 2019), so I’m very excited to read this one.

A Nurse for Jacob

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

I can’t tell you how many “nurse novels” I read when I was a teen. At that point in my life, nursing seemed about the most glamorous and fulfilling career I could think of. Well, fulfilling it might be, but I’m pretty sure there is very little glamour to it. Particularly since nurses no longer wear those oh-so-professional-looking but impractical caps.

A Nurse for Jacob by Caryl McAdoo is a historical novel set soon after the Civil War when nursing first began to be a profession.

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