Mystery+Female Sleuth+Cheap but Good= Happy Reader

by Deb Baker/Hannah Reed

Now that I've read all the Cozy Chicks' eBooks (if you haven't, click on Cozy Chicks E Books right above this post), I'm surfing for something new to dive into for the long weekend. Since I have a Kindle, Amazon is where I'll shop. And I'm in the mood for a specific type of story.

My first criteria - A mystery
Second criteria - with a female sleuth
Third criteria - really cheap

One thing I've noticed lately is how fabulous some of the indie authors are. The ones who are a little outside the box, with strong characters and unique voices. And some of the titles crack me up, make me have to try them, so without further ado, here's today's list of possibilities, all priced right at $.99:

Okay, I cheated on that last one, because I've read it. But it's really good, so you should check it out.

You can even download the very first Miss Marple mystery for FREE - The Murder at the Vicarage

I hope this doesn't open the ongoing debate about ebooks vs print books. I love them both, usually purchase traditionally published prints and read the indie stuff on my Kindle. If you are still on the fence, but want to try out an eReader, you can download a FREE Kindle to your pc or mac and take it for a test drive. And the titles you download to your computer will automatically transfer to a Kindle later on.

So then, have you discovered any new, exciting authors recently? Any fun titles to share?
