A DEAD RED ALIBI (The Dead Red Mystery series Book 4), by RP Dahlke. (Still 2.99?)

"The characters are bright and lively and somewhat unpredictable. Occasionally, Lalla and her sidekick Cousin Pearlie, seem to stumble into clues rather than ferreting them out. It’s good fun and a clever plot that keeps the reader guessing until the very end. Highly recommended." -- Amazon reviewer

A successful, but reclusive young artist with a secret life.
A wannabe lawman and his dotty gun-toting granddad.
An abandoned mine pit, a curious dad and the local police chief found with him.
 

When Lalla and her dad take a trip to Arizona to inspect her new property, Dad disappears. But when Lalla enlists the help of a local tracker she's relieved to find him unharmed, but in the bottom of a mine pit. Unfortunately, he's got company--a local police chief, and it looks like he's been murdered. Then too, a young woman artist living nearby has also been murdered. What're the chances that these two murders are going to be related? Well, if you're Lalla Bains, you don't guess, you start looking for the killer!

First Dawn (Freedom's Path Book #1) (Freedom's Path), by Judith Miller. (Still free?)

"Ms. Miller captured the dialect, culture, sights, smells and sounds of the time period expertly. The plot rolled smoothly and characters became real. I even found myself wanting to shake Jarena occasionally to get her to see Thomas. This is the first book by Judith Miller I have read, and definitely not my last." -- Amazon reviewer

Lured by the promise of "real" freedom and a new town to call their own, sharecroppers Ezekial Harban and his three daughters leave behind remnants of slavery in the war-torn south and set off for Nicodemus, Kansas. When they arrive, they are shocked to see that little of what they were promised actually exists. Many head back home, but Ezekial and his daughters are determined to build a new life in the stark territory. Dr. Boyle, a newly arrived doctor in neighboring Hill City, is called to deliver a baby in Nicodemus. He and his family are moved by the plight of the settlers there and vow to help. But the white pioneers of Hill City face problems, too. When the lives of these two families intersect, neither town will ever be the same. Freedom's Path Book 1.

Build Wealth & Spend It All: Live The Life You Earned, by Stanley Riggs. (Still 3.49?)

"Contemporary, well-researched and smartly written." -- Kirkus Reviews

"...certain to turn financial tradition on end and provide much food for thought." -- D. Donovan, Midwest Book Review

Dr. Riggs has been building wealth for over 50 years through several very different and very successful careers, each of which made him a multimillionaire. In this book he explains the three basic and easy-to-understand financial concepts anyone can use to both build and protect their wealth.

But it was only during this past year, while he was visiting his 96-year-old mother in a nursing home, that he gained insight into what awaits most of our retirement savings.

The money his mother had earned as a public school teacher and had frugally saved for over 50 years was rapidly being drained away as she dozed off in her chair. They were taking it simply because she still had it--while other residents who had already enjoyed spending their money, were now getting a free ride.


He had helped his mother to save and invest when he should have encouraged her to spend. He had failed his own mother by not encouraging her to spend all she had earned and saved, while she was still able to enjoy it.

But he was determined not to fail himself.

He needed a plan...a logical plan to enjoy strategically spending or gifting it all away over a predetermined period of time, before the private IRA, 401(k) and Roth retirement accounts are nationalized and redistributed. He needed a plan to spend it all and die broke--insolvent, but not illiquid or destitute.

Surprisingly, his plan for building wealth was simpler and came more naturally to him than his plan for spending it all.

Your grave stone will have two dates separated by a hyphen. You have no control over the dates but you do have control over the hyphen ... that's your life.

Let this book show you how to make that one great hyphen!

In two days...tomorrow will be yesterday...
So today...start to build wealth and to protect your retirement savings, and plan to strategically and responsibly spend it or gift it all away before you die.
...
This book will help you climb the "net worth mountain" and enjoy the view from the top, and it will be your guide as you descend, strategically spending and gifting away every single dollar you have earned and saved... spending it all!
