This was a slower week for me. I was mostly tempted by cheap or free downloads.

The Deepest Cut by J.A. Templeton

The Deepest Cut (MacKinnon Curse #1) by J.A. Templeton

Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother’s life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she’s somehow responsible for her mom’s death, Riley is desperate to see her mother’s elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness. When her father moves the family to Scotland so that they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn’t get worse – that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into a quick friendship and soon Riley’s falling hard for Ian. Riley believes her gift could help Ian and the curse that has kept him tied to the land for centuries, but that would mean letting him go forever and she’s not strong enough to do that. As if her life wasn’t complicated enough, the spirit of the woman who killed Ian returns and she’ll stop at nothing to keep Riley from helping Ian find eternal peace.

What The Dead Know By Laura Lippman

What The Dead Know By Laura Lippman

This stand-alone thriller from Laura Lippman revolves around the mysterious disappearance of two young sisters in a Baltimore County shopping mall on Easter weekend in 1975. Still unsolved more than three decades later, the cold case suddenly become red-hot when a middle-aged woman involved in a car accident informs police that she is one of the Bethany sisters who went missing 30 years earlier. But her disjointed story, while factually accurate, raises concerns with Baltimore County cop Kevin Infante, who intuitively knows something isn’t quite right.

Magyk by Angie Sage

Magyk by Angie Sage (Septimus Heap #1)

The seventh son of the seventh son, aptly named Septimus Heap, is stolen the night he is born by a midwife who pronounces him dead. That same night, the baby’s father, Silas Heap, comes across a bundle in the snow containing a new-born girl with violet eyes. The Heaps take this helpless newborn into their home, name her Jenna, and raise her as their own. But who is this mysterious baby girl, and what really happened to their believed son Septimus?

The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde

The Last Dragonslayer by Jasper Fforde

I won an ARC from goodreads.

In the good old days, magic was indispensable – it could both save a kingdom and clear a clogged drain. But now magic is fading: drain cleaner is cheaper than a spell, and magic carpets are used for pizza delivery. Fifteen-year-old foundling Jennifer Strange runs Kazam, an employment agency for magicians – but it’s hard to stay in business when magic is drying up. And then the visions start, predicting the death of the world’s last dragon at the hands of an unnamed Dragonslayer. If the visions are true, everything will change for Kazam – and for Jennifer. Because something is coming. Something known as…Big Magic.
