    Looks like I have lots of books to look up on Amazon this weekend. Good thing I still have money left on Christmas gift cards from Amazon. :)

    • Danna - cozy mystery list says

      You are so right, Diane. I got the order right, just didn’t change from Phryne to Corinna fast enough! Thanks!

  2. BB says

    Amanda Flower
    * A Plain Death: An Appleseed Creek Mystery – $2.99

    * A Plain Scandal: An Appleseed Creek Mystery – $4.99

    Hope some fellow mystery lovers can take advantage of all the bargains. Danna, the boxes are no longer there to receive new comments alerts. Is that permanently gone?

  3. Ann H says

    I do so much appreciate your doing this for us. I have gotten a couple of free books from Amazon; however, I try to get the “”free” books immediately upon receiving your blog and usually find that Amazon has them for .99. Now, that is still a good price but if their intent is to offer the first one free so that you buy the sequels, I think they are missing something. I do use your blogs to borrow Kindle books from my library. And again, I think Amazon is missing the point. Ann H

    Danna, You must be a mind reader. The day before you posted this list, I decided to check out Kienzle’s books for my Nook. I bought the first 5 of the series. I enjoyed them when I first read them. The Rosary Murder was first published in 1979 so I can’t even remember reading it. Now i am reading another series. By the way Maeve Binchy’s last book was very touching.

  7. Joshua says

    Thanks Danna – and, of course, BB – for this list. I am always picking up something from the freebies and cheapies that introduces to a fun new author. Wanted to add, I don’t know if they’ve been posted before, and I didn’t see them on her author page but Carola Dunn has three free short stories available on the Belgrave House website. Two of them, ‘Unhappy Medium’ and ‘Storm in a Tea Shoppe,’ are Daisy Dalrymple stories. And the third, ‘Miss Primrose and the March of Progress,’ is a 19th century set cozy. I really enjoyed all three. (And you can get them in all sorts of formats for Nook, et al not just Kindle’s mobi format.)

    Thanks, as always, for all the hard work on this terrific site!
