Literary Pursuits

Friday Freebies

Have you caught up on your reading yet? Me, neither! Yet still I add to my TBR list. In the back of my mind I know I’ll never read everything currently on my Kindle, but I sure do like having options to choose from as the mood strikes me.

Speaking of which, I read Grace Livingston Hill’s Miranda (which was free a few weeks ago) this week and it just hit the spot. Not what I would read voraciously at this stage of my life, but I needed something old-fashioned and gentle right now and it was the very thing. Plus, I found the historical aspect of westward expansion, the coming of telegraphs and railroads, and missionary Marcus Whitman to be fascinating. Maybe not as fleshed out as I would like, but an interesting subplot just the same.

On that note, this week’s freebies seem to be mostly of the gentle-read/romance genre. What can I say? Sometimes that’s just what I’m in the mood for.

Secrets of Sunbeams

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

Don’t you love the cover on Secrets of Sunbeams by Valerie Comer? It’s Book 1 of her Urban Farm Fresh Romance series. Fixing fences and runaway goats… in the city?! Sounds like a fun read!

If I’m not mistaken, I met Valerie at the Northwest Christian Writer’s Conference in Seattle a few years back. I know I’ve read at least one of her books before.

Butterflies on Breezes

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

Butterflies on Breezes is Book 2 of the same series and it is also free this week! This one features a community garden.

“These urban farming stories explore what a city neighborhood focused on local food might look like: raising goats, chickens, and bees in the heart of the city while sharing in food projects and engaging in each other’s lives. Oh, and falling in love!”

Blessed Arrangements

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

Blessed Arrangements by Angela Castillo is Book 2 of the Miss Main Street series. I shared Book 1 (Secondhand Secrets) a few weeks ago when it was free, so if you got that one you might want to add this one to your collection.

“Lila’s Flower shop and wedding business keep her plenty busy. Add in a handsome firefighter and crazy hits the fan. When Lila’s sister and nephew move back in and a terrible disaster threatens her tiny Texas town, Lila realizes she might not be able to fix everything on her own.”

Southern Gentleman

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

Southern Gentleman by Yvonne Lehman is Book 2 in the Finding Love in the Low Country series. I haven’t read Book 1, but it looks like it probably works as a stand-alone book. I’m pretty sure I’ve read other books by this author in the past.

“Baby Camille’s parents, Thornton’s brother and Norah’s sister, were killed in a terrible accident. Now both feel responsible for the baby. But by the time Thornton comes along, Norah has already formed a strong bond with Camille. Will Thornton try to take the baby from her? To keep her greatest fear from being realized, Norah reluctantly agrees to move with the baby to Thornton’s family home in South Carolina…”

Saratoga Letters

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

Saratoga Letters by Elaine Marie Cooper is a dual-time historical novel set in 1777 and 1977. Obviously, the 1777 storyline deals with the Battle of Saratoga, where the 1977 story is about a re-enactment of the battle. I’m interested to see how the stories tie together.

“Among the re-enactors are descendants of the original participants from both sides of the battle. One young American, Abby, meets the offspring of a British soldier.”

Summer of ’65

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

Summer of ’65 by Brooke St. James is Book 1 in the Bishop Family series. This one caught my eye because I was born… okay, not in the summer of ’65… but let’s just say I was “under development” at that time! (Since life begins at conception, I was actually alive then… I just hadn’t been born yet. How’s that for a funny thought?)

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
