I love reading, it’s one of my favourite hobbies and you can often find me reading a few pages of a book in bed before I go to sleep. I have read and reviewed a few books on goodreads and a couple on my blog, but I will be sharing more with you soon.  I look reading actual paperback books, but I do also read some on my kindle. There are loads of great kindle books around and i often find some really cheap and even free ones. So I thought that every so often I would share these with you. Saves you having to go and find them yourself. But please note, that prices often change, so please check how much it is before purchasing in case it has gone up in price, you may also find that some go down in price too!

The Red Letter by Kate Riordan – 99p

Secrets and lies in the 1930s in an atmospheric short story from the bestselling author of The Girl in the Photograph

Marjorie knows that James has had affairs in the past but she believed him when he said it would never happen again. Then the old warning signs start to reappear. He stays late at work and seems distracted when he’s at home. That doesn’t stop her breath catching in her throat when she sees the letter inked into his diary. A red A – seemingly innocuous and yet devastating. Undeniable.

She was a clever, independent and desirable woman once. Not someone’s second best with a broken spirit. And as Marjorie looks at the red letter A – Amy? Angela? – she realises that it’s time to rediscover herself and take back control of her life.

The Girls in The Woods by Helen Phifer – £1.99 

Don’t go into the woods. Because you’re in for a big surprise…

In an old album there is a beautiful Victorian photo that captures three young sisters, staring silently at one another. Only the trained eye can see the truth hiding in plain view. One of the sisters is already dead.

Annie Ashworth is currently off duty. With her baby bump growing fast, she is under strict instructions to stay away from police work and look after herself, especially as she has a history of leading danger right to her door. So when her police officer husband, Will, is called to the discovery of a skeleton buried out in the local woods, Annie tries to keep out of the investigation. But as another body is discovered and her own niece suddenly goes missing, staying away just isn’t an option.

As Annie is soon to discover, a picture really does tell a thousand stories. But which one leads to a killer?

Annie’s Room by Amy Cross – FREE

1945 and 2015. Seventy years apart, two girls named Annie move into the same room of the same remote house. Their stories are very different, but tragedy is about to bring them crashing together.

Annie Riley has just broken both her legs. Unable to leave bed, she’s holed up in her new room and completely reliant upon her family for company. She’s also the first to notice a series of strange noises in the house, but her parents and brother think she’s just letting her imagination run overtime. And then, one night, dark forces start to make their presence more keenly felt, leading to a horrific discovery…

Seventy years ago, Annie Garrett lived in the same house with her parents. This Annie, however, was very different. Bitter and vindictive and hopelessly devoted to her father, she developed a passionate hatred for her mother. History records that Annie eventually disappeared while her parents were executed for her murder, but what really happened to Annie Garrett, and is her ghost still haunting the house to this day?

Annie’s Room is the story of two girls whose lives just happened to be thrown together by an unlikely set of circumstances, and of a potent evil that blossomed in one soul and then threatened to consume another.
