Freebie Friday – FREE Romance, Cozy Mystery and YA Books

Traitor's Masque by Kenley Davidson, Electric by E. L. Todd, Baking is Murder by Kathy Cranston - August 26 Freebies

There are three major problems that every reader faces: making time to read in today’s fast-paced world, having money to spend on books and running out of bookshelves. E-books solve the third one and since they are often much cheaper than paperbacks, they help dealing with the second. Actually, they sometimes even eliminate the second one. When?

When the e-book copy is free, of course!

I’m starting the Freebie Friday series to help you find free books. Each Friday, I’ll post the blurbs to a few books that seem promising and are currently free to download from amazon.

For how long will they stay at that price?

I don’t know.

The author might decide to keep them free forever, but it could also be a limited time promotion so make sure to swing by on Fridays and check the freebies while they are still available without paying.

For this first Freebie Friday, I’ve picked three books that I hope you’ll enjoy.

Traitor's Masque (The Andari Chronicles Book 1) by Kenley Davidson

Title: Traitor’s Masque

Series: The Andari Chronicles, Book 1

Author: Kenley Davidson

Genres: YA, Fairytales

Amazon Rating: 5 stars

Blurb:

What if Cinderella didn’t go to the ball to dance with the prince?

What if she went to betray him?

Trystan Colbourne never meant to be a traitor. All she wanted was to escape the suffocating walls of the place she used to call home, where her stepmother’s hatred has made her an unwilling prisoner.

Desperate for a taste of freedom, Trystan accepts an offer of sanctuary from an old family friend, and for a moment, it seems as though all of her dreams are about to come true.

But dreams are fickle, and neither politics nor princes are ever quite what they seem. When she agrees to attend the royal masque, Trystan is plunged headlong into a nightmare of conspiracy, espionage and intrigue. With lives and even kingdoms at stake, she may be forced to sacrifice everything she thought she wanted in order to save the man she loves.

Traitor’s Masque is the first book in The Andari Chronicles, a series of interconnected fairy tale retellings that evoke the glittering romance of the originals, while infusing them with grit, humor, and a cast of captivating new characters.

Have I read this book? No.

Electric (Electric Series #5) by E. L. Todd

Title: Electric

Genres: Romance, Suspense

Amazon Rating: 4.5 stars

Blurb:

White-hot, blinding, and dangerous.

That’s exactly what Volt is.

He’s electric.

The first time I met him, my body reacted. It coiled, sizzled, and sparked. I knew I wanted him because he was the first man to make me feel dead and alive at the exact same time.

But within a short conversation, I knew he was unattainable.

Unavailable.

Now we’re just friends.

But will we stay friends?

Have I read this book? No.

Why did I pick this book for Freebie Friday?

The first time I met him, my body reacted. It coiled, sizzled, and sparked – because of this part, I think that the descriptions in the book might be good.

Baking is Murder (A Bee's Bakehouse Cozy Mystery) (Bee's Bakehouse Mysteries Book 1) by Kathy Cranston

Title: Baking is Murder

Series: Bee’s Bakehouse Mysteries, Book 1

Amazon Rating: 4 stars

Blurb:

Newly redundant and recently divorced, there’s never been a better time for Jessie Henderson to pack up her life in the city and move to Springdale, the small town where she spent childhood summers with her Aunt Bee.

Luckily for Jessie, Springdale is every bit as quirky and idyllic as she remembers, and Bee’s baking is just as mouth-watering.

Then the unthinkable happens and there’s a murder on the outskirts of town. Worse still, Jessie’s new friend is the prime suspect. The cops think the case is cut-and-dry, but Jessie’s gut tells her there’s more going on than meets the eye. Can she get to the bottom of it?

Baking is Murder is the first book in the Bee’s Bakehouse Cozy Mystery series. Each book is a standalone mystery.

Have I read this book? No.

Why did I pick this book for Freebie Friday?

I like Cozy Mysteries and this one seems fun. Plus, baking; baking is fun.

This is it for this Friday.

Keep an eye on the Save Money on Books section of this blog as I will occasionally post about free or discounted books on days other than Friday. After all, if a good book is on sale from Monday to Thursday, why not give it a shout-out outside of the Freebie Friday series?
