Kindle Kandy is a Friday weekly bookish feature hosted by The Book Dame. We scan our shelves and e-readers to rediscover books we own that have not yet been read, and have thus far been little more than shelf or Kindle Kandy. Too many books…too little time…..and all that jazz. Please list one or two of your Kindle Kandy books in the comments or leave a link to your Kindle Kandy post below. Don’t forget to link up at The Book Dame so you can check out all of the Kindle Kandy participants.
The Goddess of Fried OkraJean BrashearPub: March 17, 2010Grief. Hope. Love. Sword fights. And the crisp glory of fried okra.Ex-cocktail waitress and "convenience store professional" Eudora "Pea" O'Brien is filled with grief and regret, low on cash and all alone. Headed down the hot, dusty back roads of central Texas, Pea is convinced she'll find a sign leading her to the reincarnated soul of the sister who raised her. A sign that she's found her place in the world of the living again.
At least that's what the psychic promised.
In an unforgettably funny and poignant journey, Pea collects an unlikely family of strays-a starving kitten, a pregnant teenager, a sexy con man trying to go straight, and a ferocious gun dealer named Glory, who introduces Pea to the amazing, sword-wielding warrior goddesses of Texas author Robert E. Howard-creator of the Conan the Barbarian novels-and celebrated in festival every year.
Six foot tall, red-headed Pea looks good with a sword in her hand. Glory, the goddesses, and a grandmotherly café owner become Pea's unlikely gurus as she struggles to learn swordplay and the art of perfect fried okra. She'll have to master both if she's going to find what matters most-her own lost soul.
I got this as a freebie from Amazon back in July 2010 and completely forgot that I had it.. It does sound like a fun book so I'm definitely keeping it and going to try to squeeze it in somehow.
Whisper of ScandalNicola CornickPub: October 1, 2010
Lady Joanna Ware has no desire to wed again but that doesn't stop the flurry of suitors knocking on her door. Desperate to thwart another proposal, Joanna brazenly kisses Arctic explorer Alex, Lord Grant. Unable to deny the blazing attraction that flares, Joanna knows she's just set the gossip mill turning.
After suffering countless infidelities during her marriage, she's accustomed to scandal. But nothing prepares her for the shocking news that her deceased husband has bequeathed his illegitimate child to her and his friend Alex. As rumors run rampant in the ton, Joanna and Alex travel to the Arctic to claim the orphan. Battling blizzards, dangerous wildlife and a treacherous plot, Alex must protect Joanna, but not before he wickedly seduces her….
I purchased this on October 17, 2010 because I had read the first two books in the series and enjoyed them. I forgot I had this and it has been sitting on the Kindle since then. Hopefully I will be able to dive into this book soon so that I finish the series.
Have you read either of these books? If so, what did you think?
