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.

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.

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

Blessed Arrangements

Update: No longer free.

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.

Southern Gentleman

Update: No longer free.

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.

Saratoga Letters

Update: No longer free.

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.

Summer of ’65

Update: No longer free.

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!
