    My mom is so smart and wrote a book that's been on Amazon this year. Amazon is promoting it so it's free this week til Saturday. I would love for you to download it and tell me what you think!

    Where There's a Will, There's a Murder

    And while you are at it, her brother (my uncle) wrote Sound of Blood and several others. Sound of Blood is free this week too (for Prime members).

    They write so differently, but I enjoyed both these books a lot. I'm kinda in both of them - my likeness in one, and my name in the other. :wave2: Keepin' it in the family!

    I hope you guys will read and enjoy them. If you do, please write a review.

    Thanks.
    Love the free books too at Amazon. Some are stinkers, but I love it when someone recommends one.

    I'm sure you and your family have been to WDW. Have you written any TR's lately?

    Thanks guys! I don't think you'll be disappointed. Both are mysteries but have differing subject matters. My uncle wrote for the NYT so his are more financial-based. My mom's book is more breezy.

    I haven't written any trip reports. So sad! I enjoyed doing them but I just don't have enough time to devote to them. Thanks for remembering me though. :)

    Just got your moms book, can't figure out how to borrow your uncles! I have never borrowed one before, so I will have to read how to do it when I have time!

    Thanks!! I will go download right now. Free Kindle books are my favorite way to find new authors. I usually get one book free and then buy up everything else by the author.

    Thanks for letting us know about your Mom's book. I just snagged it!

    I don't have a Kindle, but use the Kindle app on my tablet, so your Uncle's books aren't free for me. Bummer! I may try one of them though. They sound very interesting.

    Since we are doing shameless plugs, I am adding here. Hope you don't mind!!

    A stop in the park by Peggy Panagopoulos Strack. Her first novel, an old friend of my moms, has been getting great reviews on amazon!

    I think the OP linked it in the first post - click on the underlined title, brings you right to it.

    Nevermind, already answered.
