We are supposed to go camping on Sunday. I just want to stay home and watch the news. Plus it’s going to be raining during most of our trip. Camping and rain is not a great combination as far as I am concerned.  Hubby says that is exactly why we need to go. He needs for me to get away from the news and relax for a bit. It’s hard to argue with that. You may have noticed that I had actually stopped posting books on the weekends, but I thought now of all times we could all use a few free books to get our minds off of the news. There are no crowds to fight to get these little gems I found, so relax, check them out and maybe even grab a few to enjoy. Plenty for all!!

Character-driven suspense rich on coastal atmosphere and dry humor. See why the Forgotten Coast Florida Suspense Series has garnered both critical praise and thousands of five-star reviews.

Book 1: Low Tide In the quaint coastal town of Apalachicola, sinister things are afoot, as sinister things tend to be.

Lt. Maggie Redmond is called to a crime scene on St. George Island, where she is met with the body of Gregory Boudreaux. The medical examiner calls it a suicide, but no one knows that Maggie has a horrible connection to the dead man.

When Gregory’s uncle, Bennett Boudreaux, the richest and scariest man in town, takes a sudden interest in Maggie, people start to wonder, Maggie included. Maggie knows he may suspect her of killing his nephew, but she finds herself slowly drawn to the man.

As Maggie fights to help a young girl escape the clutches of a volatile drug dealer who’d love to see Maggie dead, she also struggles to hide her dark link to a dead man, and her burgeoning relationship with her boss, Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton.

Unfortunately, secrets have a way of revealing themselves at low tide.

Book 2: Riptide Once again, sinister things are afoot in Apalachicola, FL, and one of them is an actual foot.

When a local fisherman finds a severed limb in his net, it sets off a chain of events that no one can anticipate

Lt. Maggie Redmond soon discovers that the foot belongs to the friend of another recently dead guy, Gregory Boudreaux, the man she never told anyone about. Gregory’s death was thought to be a suicide. That seems less likely, now that his best friend Sport’s foot has shown up out of the blue, as it were

When it starts looking like town villain Bennett Boudreaux might be responsible for eliminating Sport, things begin to get a little weird. Especially since Maggie’s started to take a liking to Bennett. She’s also taken a real liking to her boss, Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton, but her growing friendship to Bennett and her secret connection to the dead men threaten her and Wyatt’s relationship.

Is Bennett avenging Maggie for some reason, or does he have something altogether different on his mind?

Book 3: What Washes Up Karma’s alive and well in Apalachicola, Florida, and there are several people who are about to meet it face to face.

When more than a dozen bodies wash up on the beach of St. George Island, the residents of Apalach are outraged, and none more so than investigator Maggie Redmond and Sheriff Wyatt Hamilton. It’s time for the greedy to answer for the lives of innocents.

Meanwhile, a man is found tied to a burning boat in the middle of the bay, and Maggie’s instincts tell her Bennett Boudreaux is behind it.

If he is, Maggie has to decide whether she really wants him punished, or if justice has already been served.

Book 4: Landfall Two storms that nobody thought were coming just made landfall.

As a hurricane gathers its power just off Apalachicola’s shore, another storm comes to a head in Lt. Maggie Redmond’s home.

Held prisoner by a man bent on avenging the death of a son, Maggie must find a way to save herself and her two children. No one knows where they are. No one is coming to help.

Maggie and her children will have to find a way to survive both the madness inside their home and the madness raging outside.
