Samsung Books Deal – kwiecień

Pierwsze ciepłe dni za nami. Oznacza to, że można odświeżyć balkony, tarasy i wszelkie dobrodziejstwa, które pozwolą nam poczytać w plenerze. Jest to także dobry czas aby sięgnąć po nowe wyzwania i nowe tytuły. Nic prostszego! Nowy miesiąc – nowa książka od Samsunga! Jedna z czterech do wyboru zupełnie za darmo (dla  posiadaczy Kindle for Samsung). Oto aktualne propozycje:

  • Regarding Ducks and Universes – Neve Maslakovic, ocena: 3,7/5, 345 stron, komedia Science Fiction,
    • On a foggy Monday in 1986, the universe suddenly, without warning, bifurcated. Fast-forward to 35 years later: Felix Sayers is a culinary writer living in San Francisco of Universe A who spends his days lunching at Coconut Café and dreaming of penning an Agatha Christie-style mystery. But everything changes when his Aunt Henrietta dies, leaving Felix a photograph of his father and himself–dated ten days beforeFelix was born. It can only mean one thing: Felix has an ‚alter’ in Universe B. Panicked that his mystery novel may exist already, Felix crosses to San Francisco B and proceeds to flagrantly violate the rules of both worlds by snooping around his alter’s life. But when he narrowly escapes a hit-and-run, it becomes clear that someone knows he’s crossed over… and whoever it is isn’t happy about it. Now Felix must uncover the truth about his alter, the events of one Monday, and a wayward rubber duck before his time in both worlds runs out.
  • Rite of Wrongs – Mica Stone, ocena 3,6/5, 370 stron, kryminał
    • Honor thy father and thy mother.Stress is a constant in Detective Miriam Rome’s life due to her heavy caseload. Now she’s facing an especially gruesome crime: a pediatrician’s wife has been brutally murdered, and a Bible verse written in her blood is found at the scene. As the tranquil city of Union Park, Texas, is left reeling, Detective Rome pursues every possible lead in her search for the murderer.

      When a second slaying—and second bloody quote—seems to confirm that a serial killer is at large, Rome is forced to turn to her former partner for his particular insight. Father Augustine Treece had walked away from police work, but now Rome’s request has drawn him back into the grisly world he thought he’d left behind.

      Working to stay ahead of the murders, Detective Rome and Father Treece must forgive their past to protect the next victim…a task that tests Rome’s limits when the killer hits too close to home.

  • Broken Pieces – Kathleen Long, ocena 4,5/5, 284 strony, literatura kobieca
    • Destiny Jones is doing just fine on her own, thanks. From her thriving one-woman carpentry business to the loving support of her small-town community, Destiny has constructed a life as sturdy and polished as her best cabinets. Twenty years ago, Destiny’s world collapsed when her mother died and her father, Albert, abandoned his daughter to pursue acting in New York. His devastating exit taught Destiny a lesson in self-reliance that has kept her safe—and alone—ever since.Now Albert Jones is back, begging for a second chance. Destiny suspects he’s simply staging another performance, starring himself as the prodigal father. Should she act on her misgivings? Or listen to her inner child, who still yearns for a family? When Albert divulges a shocking secret, Destiny’s life will again be turned upside down.

      Kathleen Long’s warm, wise novel reveals the armor that has protected us in the past is often the very thing we must shed to fully live and love.

  • Falling for Frederick – Cheryl Bolen, ocena 3,9/5, 302 strony, romans,
    • Her second day doing doctoral research in the basement archives of Siddley Hall, England’s grandest Tudor home, American Antonia Townley stumbles upon the hall’s curator with a knife plunged into his chest. Police suspect Antonia of being the killer because of two insignificant—to her—reasons: The first is the pesky matter of her fingerprints on the murder weapon. The second is the unfortunate email she had sent to her sister saying she would kill for the curator’s job.Handsome bachelor Frederick Percy, Lord Rockford of Siddley Hall, learns that the curator was on the trail of the Percy family monstrance, the most valuable monstrance in England before Henry VIII’s dissolution. Frederick becomes convinced that the curator’s death is tied to the priceless artifact, and he must find it before the killer does to free Antonia from suspicion of murder. More importantly, Frederick vows to protect the beautiful scholar against the menacing forces after her.But as Frederick and Antonia crisscross England seeking information on the Percy Monstrance, it becomes clear that someone is stalking her every move. Could Frederick, the man Antonia has fallen in love with, be the very person who is out to destroy her?

Tym razem wybór, jak dla mnie, mega trudny. Książki mało znane (nawet po tamtej stronie globu), z niskimi ocenami (poza jedną). Przyszło mi wybrać nietypowo: literaturę kobiecą: Broken Pieces – przynajmniej okładka ładna 😉
