12 Kindle Freebies: Cookbooks, Chick Lit, Mysteries & Thrillers, Writing

Even if I don't have a chance to make daily posts about the Kindle freebies I purchase, I do actively search them out every day. Some I find on my own; some come from my subscriptions to freebie websites. Here are some gems I found over the past several days and look forward to devouring.

Please remember that while they are all free at the time of this posting, prices can change without warning. Always check the "Buy" price and not the "Prime" price prior to making your own purchase.


35 Scrumptious Cookie & Bar Recipes

You can't go wrong with cookies! This collection of 35 recipes is a collection of some familiar ideas, and some that are a little more out of the box. (At least I have never seen them before!) I'm liking the sounds of Cherry Cheesecake Bars, Frosted Fruit Bars, Nut Goodie Bars, Chocolate Chip Cereal Bars and Creamy Cookies. This book already has an average of 5 stars from readers, which I take as a good sign.

50 Cupcake Recipes

This collection of 50 cupcake recipes also includes 35 tips for baking the perfect cupcakes. Cupcakes are great fun for parties or for sharing. And they are a hot commodity with the advent of shows such as "Cupcake Wars." Specific recipes that caught my eye include the following: Baked Cream Cheese Cupcakes, Cinnamon Chocolate Cupcakes, Cream Cheese Pecan Cupcakes, Iced Carrot Cupcakes, PB and Chocolate Cupcakes, Velvet Red Cupcakes and Whipped Mocha Cupcakes.

Healthy Chicken Dishes That Keep You Feeling Full and Help You Lose Weight

Chicken is one of the most versatile dishes around, and we are always looking for new ways to make it. The bonus with these recipes is that they are supposed to be healthy for you. Included are Weight Watchers points for each dish, for those of you who are keeping track of those. Recipes are supposed to be representative of numerous world cultures. I always say, even if I can find one new dish that is worthy of eating and repeating, it makes the purchase worth it!

The Wife of Reilly

Jennifer Coburn's main character Prudence ends up in a whirlwind romance with an old flame, Matt, after the two reunite at a reunion. They very quickly fall in love and get married. Only a short time later, Prudence realizes that she has made a mistake. She doesn't want to leave Matt all by himself, so she embarks upon a quest to find him a new wife. Marion Keyes, one of my favorite "chick lit" authors recommended this book. I am hoping she is right.

Golden Lies

Best-selling author Barbara Freethy stole my heart in another novel of hers that I read some months ago. So, when I saw this one offered for free, I had to grab it. Three women from different backgrounds have their lives changed forever as they follow a trail through the streets of San Francisco. They have to choose between romantic love and family loyalty, while coming to terms with the past.

Fools Rush In (Weddings By Bella, Book 1)

This is one of the first freebies I ever got for my Kindle app on my Droid. And I fell madly in love with it. I really need to give in and purchase the remaining books in the series. But because it has recently popped up again in the Top 100 list, I thought I would bring it to your attention in this collection.

Bella Rossi is pushing 30 years old. Her Italian parents have recently given her control of the wedding planning business. When a mix-up gets her involved in working with a southern hunk named DJ, hilarity and culture clashes ensue.
