Joseph Boschi’s Frugal Find{s) Under Nine:

Conceived in Liberty:

Dreams of the future are generally for all ages. Eric Andros is the young son of a German fisherman who covets the power and riches to be had from life in the fast lane. Numbers always came easy to him and in the fertile environment of University life he is able to learn and test many of his theories about the path to becoming the richest and most powerful man in the world.

He befriends his classmate from the University of Hamburg, Raul Aboudi, and together they maintain a close relationship even after graduation. Eric goes on to a position at the Bank of Frankfurt and Raul takes a position at Brown University in the World History studies program.

Eric continues to apply his theories of leveraging financial manipulations and begins to amass a position of some substance. He begins to formulate a future plan for financial domination at the expense of the capitalistic systems in effect in the United States. Additional partners from around the world seek to associate with Eric as he plays upon the human frailties of the country’s leaders including the man sponsored by Eric and his associates, the President himself. This clandestinely organized group maintains a common hatred for America and would like nothing less than to see it buried under its own greed and corruption.

The puppet President is merely a figurehead for the financial cabal maintained by Eric. However, a patriotic group from across the business avenues of the United States has begun to organize in response to their fears of what they see taking place. The common opinion is that the presence and influence of Eric must be destroyed and they organize under the leadership of Roland Southfield to remove the President from office as he seeks a second term.

Southfield himself has had his own share of political problems and is anathema in many circles in the Washington area as a result of prior relations with the contras. None the less, the common wisdom is that he has all of the prior experience and less than savory affiliations to destroy the influential sway of Eric.

Southfield is able to create his own plan for the elimination of Andros and enlists assistance from a number of unlikely players-all with critical parts to play. The journey is much more important than the final destination as Southfield marshals his resources to accomplish what otherwise was beyond the boundaries of non-treasonous activities. The multiple journeys of “Conceived in Liberty” can best be summarized by the following:

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly unite in high table stakes Patriot Games where the prize is the preservation of American Sovereignty.

The follow up, Born of Necessity:

Grave situations require drastic actions. A conglomerate of twelve of the wealthiest men in the world, know as the Dozen, will do anything to destroy the basic principals on which the United States was founded… capitalism and democracy. They were successful in having their candidate, a mere puppet, elected President of the United States and were in the process of controlling the entire government and the rest of the world. A group of very concerned citizens formed a force to regain control of the presidency and preserve all that was sacred to the people of this great nation… no matter the cost. This group called themselves the Patriots. A plan was devised with the help of unidentified covert operatives, and the first half of the plan was carried out in Boschi’s previous book titled Conceived in Liberty. The financial leader of the Dozen was taken out by a sniper while giving an update to the Dozen. Now it is time for the second half of the plan to be implemented. If something is conceived, then there must have been a conception. A conception would demand a birth. Come along on the journey of Born of Necessity as these two forces seek to establish and maintain a new tomorrow for America

Searching for closure, Cassie returns to her childhood home on the Pacific Coast of Baja, Mexico, where she launches her own investigation into the accident. She never expected to find an adversary in the man who had once touched her heart with kindness in her darkest moment.

Rio’s been fantasizing about reconnecting with Cassie for months. But not here and sure as hell not now. As an undercover agent with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, he’s working the biggest sting operation in all of northern Mexico, and he definitely doesn’t have time for the wild attraction he feels for Cassie.

Not only is his cover on the line, so is his heart. Because as the end of a yearlong operation draws closer, Rio knows if he tells Cassie the truth about who and what he is, it won’t only jeopardize his mission, it may result in him losing her forever.

THE FRUGAL FIND OF THE DAY: Still Waters, Misha Crews {$2.99 or Borrow FREE w/Prime!}

Sponsored Post

Misha Crews‘ Frugal Find Under Nine:

Description of Still Waters:

A tragic death… A disturbing photo that can’t be explained… A woman drowning in an ocean of secrets…

In 1950s Virginia, Jenna Appleton seems to have found the life she’s always wanted. But underneath the shallow gleam of her bright suburban world, murky truths are waiting to surface.

On the morning that her husband dies in a tragic accident, Jenna finds a shocking photo of him in the arms of a beautiful woman. And before she can ask him about it, he’s gone forever.

Five years later, Jenna has buried her questions and remade her life. But the reappearance of an old love stirs up guilty questions, and she realizes that some secrets aren’t meant to be kept. The deeper she dives for answers, the darker the water gets. How will she find happiness for herself and her family, when every move she makes toward the strange and awful truth seems to lead her right back to her own home shores?

Accolades:

“I read probably between two to four books a month. This one stands out as a great read and one of the best all-round/mainstream books that I’ve read in ages. It’s a romance with a bit of mystery stirred in, but mostly it’s about family and love. What will people do for happiness, and what will they do to protect the ones they love?” – E.A.

“I like the way the author wrote the story like a Russian Matryoshka doll; open the doll and there is another doll inside, open that one and…well you get the idea. The tale rolls along, gaining mystery and suspense until the ending which is quite the eye opener.” – R.E.J.

“Misha Crews creates a book that keeps revealing different layers of truth under the lies and misconceptions. Her heroine is a flawed woman trying to make the best decisions as life presents its choices. Crews writes compelling scenes that kept me wanting to know what happens next – an entertaining work of women’s fiction.” – D.T.

An excerpt from Still Waters:

“You’re not the only one who regrets the things that were said the other day.” Jenna spoke softly for fear that her words would carry on the night air. She and Adam had reached the end of the drive and were turning right to walk down Lee Street. Jenna wasn’t altogether sure she should be taking this walk, but Adam was right: they needed to clear the air.

Crickets sang shrilly in the tall, sweet-smelling grass that grew along the railroad tracks. Beneath the leafy trees, the street was shadowed, making it hard to see where they were going. But Adam walked through the dark with confidence, and she tried to match his self-assurance step for step as she continued speaking. “I shudder when I think of the way I went after you. It was just the surprise of seeing you that did it. It caught me off-guard.”

“I know. I wish Kitty had told you that I was coming. Otherwise I would have called you myself.”

“It’s not Kitty’s fault. It’s mine.”

Adam stopped walking. “How do you figure that?”

“I should have answered your letters.” Jenna twisted her hands together. “I don’t know if I could have told you the truth about Christopher — I’m not that brave — but at least I should have had the nerve to tell you that I was engaged. After our night together, you had every right to expect me to wait for you.”

The silence stretched again. Jenna couldn’t make out Adam’s features, but she could sense him waiting, thinking. At last he started forward again, and she kept pace. “I don’t have any right to expect anything from you,” he said at length. “And you’re braver than you give yourself credit for.”

In spite of herself, Jenna found herself warming at Adam’s words of praise. She bit her lip and mentally shored up her earlier resolution: she had to define her position, to herself as well as Adam.

She said the first thing that came to mind. “How’s your Latin?”

Adam laughed. “What?”

“When I was younger, I used to sometimes get confused between the words ‘fidelity’ and ‘integrity.’ But then Lucien explained to me that ‘fidelity’ comes from Latin word fidelitas, which means faithful. And ‘integrity’ comes from the Latin word integritas, which means whole. That’s when I finally understood that in order to have integrity, one must maintain wholeness, the fullness of self. Do you know what I mean?”

“Not entirely,” Adam confessed.

A flush of frustration shot through her. She had never been any good at explaining herself. “I mean that life has many parts to it, and integrity is all about seeing how those parts of life fit together, and then maintaining it as a whole.” She heard the words come out of her mouth, and she knew she was making a garbled mess out of her metaphor. “Does that make any sense?”

“You’re saying that for you to keep your integrity, you need to maintain the life that you’ve made for yourself, and not let anything break it apart.” Adam’s voice was neutral.

“Exactly,” Jenna said gratefully. Adam always seemed to know what she meant to say. “Sometimes I feel like my life is a crystal ball: strong and solid, but full of hairline cracks. I have to be strong and hold it just right in both my hands, or the cracks will widen and the whole thing will fall apart.”

“And with you holding your world together so carefully, you’re not sure how I can fit in.”

“Well, it sounds pretty cold and awful when you say it like that, but you’re right as usual. I don’t know how you can fit in — or if you can at all, for that matter.”

He digested that with characteristic silence. “I understand.”

“Do you?” This time it was Jenna who stopped. They faced each other in the murky light. “I wish you could explain it to me, then. Because I seem to be in a complete mess about you.”

Hope flickered in his face, and she knew that she should have kept that last statement to herself.

“That’s encouraging,” was all he said.

She shook her head emphatically. “No, it’s not. At least, it wasn’t meant to be.”

Jenna looked up and down the empty street. Adam caught the meaning behind the gesture. Another metaphor. “Do we keep going forward, or do we go back?” He pointed up the street. “It’s dark up that way, and there’s no telling what we’ll find. Back that way” — he pointed the opposite direction, towards Bill and Kitty’s house — “we know the road. Me, you, Bud — we’ve been over it a million times, and it never really changes. Maybe it’s time we walked forward into the dark, to see what else might be out there.”

Jenna’s voice was hard. “After all these years of running, I would’ve thought you’d know what’s out there.” Memories glinted in the darkness: The silver badge of the kind officer who had knocked on her door one morning and told her that her husband had died. An old photo, showing the man she had loved embracing another woman and a child. A hole dug in the ground for Bud’s coffin, like the hole in her heart, filling up with pain. “It’s just more road, Adam. It’s just more road. I’m sick of the unknown. All I want now is to raise my son in peace.”

Tears threatened behind her eyes, and she summoned her anger to push them away. “You can go on exploring your dark paths if you want to. But I’m going this way.” She turned and started back towards Bill and Kitty’s house. Her words floated over her shoulder in the darkness. “I’m going back to my family. I’m going home.”

Adam watched her walk away. Her slender figure cut through the night like a sword, until she was swallowed up by shadows. Eventually he started after her, his footsteps slow and resigned. He had ruined the moment. Again.

Apolo Drakuvich, G.W. Jefferies {$2.99 or Borrow FREE w/Prime}

G.W. Jefferies’ Apolo Drakuvich captures the life of a petty criminal on a strange ride ranging from bizarre and senseless to utterly tragic. Revolving around parasitic journalism, media and government corruption, and a ruthless, conniving judge who milks the citizens out of millions of dollars, Apolo Drakuvich can be described as a compilation of untamed and sheer madness–captivating the readers’ attention from beginning to end. With its raw descriptions, penetrating dialogue and crisp writing, this book is like no other.
Within all the madness that so epitomizes the life of Apolo, G.W. Jeffries presents a life of regret in epic proportions. Sitting in a jail cell, Apolo reflects, “One thing is for sure, I let it all slip away…so many opportunities lost.” Apolo sadly examines the events and decisions of his life, and the paths he took and should have taken. Apolo seeks peace of mind and justice, but flashbacks of his past continuously haunt him; moreover, he seems to be victimized by a corrupt justice system everywhere he goes.

As an offender, Apolo discusses pertinent issues of today’s society, where it is next to impossible for offenders to live normal lives, despite the desire to do so. Essentially, law enforcement and authorities seem to systematically destroy the offender by placing constraints on the offender such as restrictions on where to live, GPS monitoring, registering as offenders on websites, and more.

Apolo Drakuvich is a microcosm of numerous real-life issues encompassing the wild, the bizarre, and the tragic.

An Amazon Best Seller: United States Drama

What readers are saying:

The thing I liked most about this book was that it was different and not formulaic. This book is at it’s heart, a character examination. The author has a real talent for setting up scenes and sometimes it almost reads like a screenplay. The main character Apolo Drakuvich has a philosophy that rings loud and clear as the book goes along and each chapter adds a new layer to the character. I am looking forward to more of Jefferies’ work and I would recommend this book if your looking to read something challenging and different. – J. Malliet

A good tale. Gripping in places and emotionally freeing in some unique ways. When we find ourselves identifying with a repeat offender criminal our perspective is bound to be tweaked quite a bit. – David C.

The average Amazon review rating is currently 4.5 stars {38 reviews}.

A Lovely, Indecent Departure, Steven Lee Gilbert {FREE!}

A Lovely, Indecent Departure is the riveting and emotionally-charged debut from a promising new voice in literary thrillers, and a captivating story of a mother’s love and desperation set amidst the heart wrenching landscape of child custody.
Anna Miller wants only one thing, her son, and she will do anything to keep him. When a district court awards custody of Oliver to his father, she abducts the five year old and flees to Italy where with her family’s help they disappear into the fabric of her native homeland. Told in prose that is both stripped-down and overpowering, Gilbert shapes the everyday conflict of child custody into a stunning search for sense of worth. Standing in the young woman’s way is Evan Meade, the boy’s guileful and mean-spirited father, who hires a private investigator when the efforts of the embattled local sheriff, Monroe Rossi, fail to track them down. But as the investigation draws them all closer to Anna, Evan’s true nature betrays itself and the question of what’s in the child’s best interest becomes not so clear anymore.
Objectively detailed, in a voice that refuses to intrude on the minds of its characters, A Lovely, Indecent Departure
, captures in stark detail a world in which modern archetypes are turned upside down and shows what an extraordinary splash Steven Lee Gilbert has made with his first novel.

What readers are saying:

“The well-crafted plot is meted out at a steady pace, continually feeding readers’ need to know and simultaneously whetting the appetite for more.”—Kirkus Reviews

“A ringside seat to a drama whose tensions are racheted higher and higher as we near the denouement…An impressive debut.”—Judy Hogan, Founder Carolina Wren Press

“The quality in this book is a perfect example of Indie authors being able to hold their own in regards to larger publishing house authors.”—Naomi Blackburn, Founder Sisterhood of the Traveling Book

“This novel brings together many genres, effortlessly. Merging crime, family drama, action, chic-lit, and intoxicating landscapes, A Lovely, Indecent Departure is captivating…No matter what side of the custody battle you identify with, you will be riveted to the very last page.”—The Literary R&R

The average Amazon review rating is currently 4 stars {22 reviews}.

Angry Mobs and Founding Fathers, Michael E. Newton
~ Free!

Angry mobs launched the American Revolution when they protested against British acts of tyranny. These rebels threatened, harassed, and chased away British officials and Loyalists. The Founding Fathers agreed with the goals of these Patriots, but not with their methods. Fearing anarchy, the Founders channeled the passion of the mobs toward independence.

Working together, the angry mobs and Founding Fathers defeated the mighty British army and won independence, but the new nation that emerged was anarchic and chaotic, much like the angry mobs themselves. Meeting behind closed doors, the Founding Fathers conspired to depose the Confederation government, wrote a new constitution, and created the world’s most successful republic.

Angry Mobs and Founding Fathers tells the little-known story of how these two groups fought for control of the American Revolution.

When he learns what happened to Gabriella’s family, and what she plans, he knows a young woman like her will have no chance against the outlaws, and vows to save her the way he couldn’t save his own family. But the price of vengeance is high and Gabriella’s willingness to sacrifice everything ultimately leads to the book’s deadly and startling conclusion.

This is a harsh and gritty tale of the old West, somewhat reminiscent of Charles Portis’ True Grit or Nancy Turner’s These is My Words.

Ethan Justice
, Simon Jenner ~ Free!

He’s a new kind of hero. Join him for his very first adventure.

John Smith’s life is dull and uneventful. Despite a privileged upbringing and education, he is an underachiever of the highest calibre. When Smith wakes up with Savannah Jones, an escort provided by his best friend, Mark Bradshaw, his life is changed forever. Eager to pay Jones, to avoid her pimp breaking his legs, he confronts his friend for the money – but there is one small problem – Bradshaw is dead. But what was the murderer after?

Fisher has lost his job and wants payback. Bradshaw had the one weapon that could grant him the ultimate revenge but torture hadn’t loosened his tongue. Smith and Jones are dragged into Fisher’s grand plot to destroy the bureaucrats responsible for taking the one job where his lust for murder was an asset. No longer part of the elite SAS, Fisher’s licence to kill is revoked. With only vengeance and an unnatural lust for his sister on his mind, Fisher will relish the destruction of anyone that stands in his way.

Jones, an escort for less than a day, must pay her pimp a thousand pounds or be sold to an interested third party with highly unsavoury tastes. Jones needs Smith to pay the money and Smith needs Jones to… well he’s not quite sure, but he clearly likes having her around. Together, armed with nothing but their wits, they become the pawns of an anti-terrorist agency in a plan to capture Fisher before he exacts a revenge that will take thousands of innocent lives.

Can the underachiever become the hero, save the day and get the girl? Find out in this dark story of murder, deceit, lust and revenge. It’s a fun and wild ride into a disturbing world.
