Fresh Fiction Box Not To Miss is a monthly book subscription that sends 5-7 new release books for $25.95. Shipping is free to the U.S. and extra to Canada. You can choose from a 1 or 3 month plan and both plans auto renew. Alternatively, you can also buy a one-time box from their online shop. They send 3-5 new release print books and codes for some downloadable ebooks! Most of the books will be from the romance genre but they may occasionally send mystery, erotica, YA, and paranormal books too.
My box had a simple presentation: items were wrapped in tissue paper and sealed with a sticker.
I found a stack of books inside!
Everything in my box!
I found a card inside the box.
The back of the card listed some social media sites and had a coupon code for new subscribers.
I even found two cookies to snack on while reading my books!
Dark Ambitions by Irene Hannon ($15.99 list price, now $12.39) is Book 3 in the Code of Honor series. It is a mystery, one of my favorite types of books to read, although I feel like I might need to read books one and two first to get the back story!
Former Army Night Stalker Rick Jordan usually has his camp for foster children to himself during the winter months. But someone has visited recently–leaving a trail of blood. One of the two clues left behind tips Rick off to the identity of his visitor, who soon turns up dead. The police deem it an accident, but Rick isn’t convinced. With the help of private investigator Heather Shields, he sets out to decipher the remaining clue. Except someone doesn’t want them to succeed–and will stop at nothing to keep them from finding the truth.
With her trademark psychological suspense ratcheting up the tension on every page, bestselling and award-winning author Irene Hannon takes you on a search for a cold-blooded killer with an ambitious goal and deadly intent.
A Distance Too Grand by Regina Scott ($15.99 list price, now $13.09) I like historical fiction too, and it’s a romance as well, plus it takes place at one of our national parks! Sounds like an informative read as well as entertaining.
Meg Pero has been assisting her photographer father since she was big enough to carry his equipment, so when he dies she is determined to take over his profession–starting with fulfilling the contract he signed to serve on an Army survey of the North Rim of the Grand Canyon in 1871. What she doesn’t realize is that the leader of the expedition is none other than the man she once refused to marry.
Captain Ben Coleridge would like nothing more than to leave without the woman who broke his heart, but he refuses to wait even one more day to get started. This survey is a screen for another, more personal mission, one he cannot share with any member of his team.
As dangers arise from all sides, including within the survey party, Meg and Ben must work together to stay alive, fulfill their duties, and, just maybe, rekindle a love that neither had completely left behind.
The Words Between Us by Erin Bartels ($15.99 list price, now $12.10) Hmm, a book about books, I like the sound of that! It mentions books from the main character’s past and maybe that will inspire me to read some of them in the present day.
Robin Windsor has spent most of her life under an assumed name, running from her family’s ignominious past. She thought she’d finally found sanctuary in her rather unremarkable used bookstore just up the street from the marina in River City, Michigan. But the store is struggling and the past is hot on her heels.
When she receives an eerily familiar book in the mail on the morning of her father’s scheduled execution, Robin is thrown back to the long-lost summer she met Peter Flynt, the perfect boy who ruined everything. That book–a first edition Catcher in the Rye–is soon followed by the other books she shared with Peter nearly twenty years ago, with one arriving in the mail each day. But why would Peter be making contact after all these years? And why does she have a sinking feeling that she’s about to be exposed all over again?
With evocative prose that recalls the classic novels we love, Erin Bartels pens a story that shows that words–the ones we say, the ones we read, and the ones we write–have more power than we imagine.
Stitches In Time by Suzanne Wood Fisher ($15.99 list price, now $14.93) is Book 2 of 3 in the Deacon’s Family series. I know absolutely nothing about the Amish so it will be interesting to see how they live and I look forward to getting a (fictionalized) look in to their lifestyle and beliefs.
Detachment had worked well as a life strategy for horse trainer Sam Schrock. Until he met Mollie Graber . . .
New to Stoney Ridge, schoolteacher Mollie has come to town for a fresh start. Aware of how fleeting and fragile life is, she wants to live it boldly and bravely. When Luke Schrock, new to his role as deacon, asks the church to take in foster girls from a group home, she’s the first to raise her hand. The power of love, she believes, can pick up the dropped stitches in a child’s heart and knit them back together.
Mollie envisions sleepovers and pillow fights. What the 11-year-old twins bring to her home is anything but. Visits from the sheriff at midnight. Phone calls from the school truancy officer. And then the most humiliating moment of all: the girls accuse Mollie of drug addiction.
There’s only one thing that breaks through the girls’ hard shell–an interest in horses. Reluctantly and skeptically, Sam Schrock gets drawn into Mollie’s chaotic life. What he didn’t expect was for love to knit together the dropped stitches in his own heart . . . just in time.
Suzanne Woods Fisher invites you back to the little Amish church of Stoney Ridge for a touching story of the power of love.
Always Look Twice by Elizabeth Goddard ($15.99 list price, now $14.39) is Book 2 of 3 in the Uncommon Justice series. It is a suspenseful romantic novel and again, I can’t wait to get started on this thriller!
At the advice of her therapist, homicide survivor Harper Reynolds has traded her job as a crime scene photographer for a more peaceful life taking photographs of the natural world. But her hopes for a life surrounded by the serenity of the outdoors are dashed when she inadvertently captures a murder being committed in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. She flees the scene in fear–and loses the camera.
Former Green Beret Heath McKade is a reserve deputy in an understaffed county who has been called in to protect Harper, a childhood friend he is surprised to see back in the area. When Harper learns that the sheriff’s department can’t find any evidence of the murder she witnessed, she is determined to do what she can to see that justice is done. What neither Harper nor Heath could know is how many explosive secrets from the past will be exposed–or how deeply they will fall for each other.
In this suspenseful page-turner, bestselling author Elizabeth Goddard keeps you on the edge of your seat as you discover that uncommon justice lies just on the other side of fear.
Fresh Fiction sent a good selection of books this month, with a focus on mysteries, which I really appreciate. I always have a hard time deciding what to read first but the book about books really caught my attention, but then so did the one abut the Grand Canyon. The value for my November box, using current selling prices on Amazon, is about $66.90!
