KND Kindle Free Book Alert, Friday, May 20: Over THREE DOZEN BRAND NEW FREEBIES today! plus … Forget the daily grind with Beth Orsoff’s HONEYMOON FOR ONE (Today’s Sponsor)

It may be a hidden back door, but after over a year of lobbying we’re glad to see that Amazon is finally cracking open the door to allow indie authors to offer their books free to the citizens of Kindle Nation, and especially glad to see freebies from past Kindle Nation sponsors like Scott Nicholson, David McAfee and Marsha Canham near the top of today’s additions to nearly 600 Kindle Free Book Alert listings….


But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor

Memorial Day is just days away, but your Kindle won’t be ready for your first trip to the beach until you’ve downloaded Beth Orsoff’s smart, funny, and suspenseful novel Honeymoon For One!

“This book is a perfect for a vacation or beach read, especially for when you want to forget the daily grind and just relax.”
–Dianne S. Tetro, Top 500 Reviewer

Suspense with a sense of humor”



Here’s the set-up:

There are worse things in life than being dumped at the altar. Like being accused of killing your fake husband in a third world country where you can’t speak the language, for example.

When Lizzie Mancini booked her honeymoon to the secluded Blue Bay Beach Resort on the small Caribbean island of Camus Caye she thought it would be relaxing to spend the week at an isolated couples-only retreat. But that was before she knew she’d be honeymooning sans groom. Touring alone, dining alone, and worst of all, having to explain to the resort’s thirty other guests why she was staying in the bridal suite alone—Lizzie was dreading it. But it still beat the alternative, eight more days hibernating in her empty apartment feeling sorry for herself.

Then Lizzie meets Michael, a gold-chained antiquities dealer who offers to play her husband for the week no strings (or sex) attached. The plan works perfectly until Lizzie spends the night with scuba instructor Jack, and Michael’s body washes up on Blue Bay’s pristine shore. Lizzie becomes Polizia Nationale’s number one suspect and the only way she can prove her innocence is to solve Michael’s murder herself.


What the Reviewers Say
“Have you ever made a single spur-of-the-moment bad decision that naturally led to a cascade of ever worsening choices? In her emotionally weakened post-altar-jilting state, protagonist Lizzie Mancini does just that. Even as you’re screaming inside, NO LIZZIE, DON’T DO IT, you have to keep reading. No one can turn away from a car crash or train wreck. Lizzie is too likable and you want to see her get out of this mess before the train completely jumps the track. Does she? Read it and see..”
–BigAl, Top 500 Reviewer


” The story grabbed me from the first page with its very likeable characters, the situations they find themselves in, and not knowing who the bad guy is because there are just so many to choose from. And it seems that no one is quite what you think they are.”
–C. Thilmany, Vine Voice


“This book is a fun action packed read filled with romance, murder, mystery, thieves, and a turtle named Fred. With many intriguing questions to be answered that keep you reading to figure it all out. With a great sense of humor to tie it all together into a fun filled book”
–Kipp Poe Speicher, Vine Voice

    Thanks for the mention, Stephen. I have no idea what the “back door” is for free books, as I never set Ashes to free and as far as I can tell, no other retailer as discounted it to free. It may be some kind of glitch, as it was temporarily free though some Smashwords outlets late last year. But heck, readers have been great to me, so if you can get a freebie on me, please enjoy it!
