August 2019 Additions to My eBook Stockpile

Sometimes it's dangerous to go window shopping online. That's what I did late one night in August, and I wound up going on a spree-- mainly with books from two different authors. At least no one can say that my literary security blanket is looking threadbare!

I've grouped the additions to my stockpile by genre or subgenre, and if you click on the title of the book, you'll be taken to Amazon US to learn more about it, so beware if you're a reader in a different country and wish to make a purchase. I am not affiliated with Amazon; I just own one of their Kindles.

Let's take a look at the list and see if I managed to purchase any titles that tickle your fancy...


Moab Is My Washpot by Stephen Fry. Memoirs. England.
Red Light Women of Death Valley by Robin Flinchum. History. California.

~~~Historical Fiction~~~

The Foreign Field #31 by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. England, France, Belgium.
The Fallen Kings #32 by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. England, France, Belgium.
The Winding Road #34 by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. England, USA.
The Phoenix: The Morland Dynasty #35 by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles. England.
Huachuca Woman by Arletta Dawdy. Arizona.

~~~Short Stories~~~

Grab Bag: A Collection of Stories by Charlotte MacLeod. Various locations.
Jimm Juree Case Files #11: Whale Vomit by Colin Cotterill. Thailand.

~~~Science Fiction~~~

Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes. New York City and Chicago.

~~~Cozy Mystery~~~

 Picture Miss Seeton by Heron Carvic. England.

~~~Historical Mystery~~~

Tribute of Death by Simon Levack. Mexico.

~~~Amateur Sleuth~~~

Death's Favorite Child by Frankie Y. Bailey. England.

~~~Private Investigator~~~

A Blind Eye by Jane Gorman. Poland.

~~~Law Enforcement/Working Dogs~~~

Lost Creed by Alex Kava. Florida and Nebraska. 

~~~Police Procedural~~~

Off the Grid by Robert McCaw. Hawaii.
Summerchill by Quentin Bates. Iceland.
Winterlude by Quentin Bates. Iceland.
Thin Ice by Quentin Bates. Iceland.
Cold Steal by Quentin Bates. Iceland.
Cold Breath by Quentin Bates. Iceland.

As you can see, the spree I went on consisted of books by Cynthia Harrod-Eagles and Quentin Bates, and if any of you were sharp-eyed enough to see that #33 was missing from my Harrod-Eagles spree, that's because I already own a copy of that particular book in the series. (Fabulous series, by the way!)

Did any of the titles tickle your fancy? Which ones? Inquiring minds would love to know!


  1. You have some nice additions there, Cathy. I want to check out that Frankie Y. Bailey. I liked The Red Queen Dies, and haven't had a chance to read her since.

    1. I've been wanting to read Bailey for a long time.

  2. I had to take a look at which of Quentin Bates' books were on my Kindle. I was a missing a couple, so guess what happened? Ha!

    1. See what happens when you read other people's book blogs? LOL

  3. I had an earlier series of Cynthia Harrod Eagles which I loved to read (again).

    1. I know she writes the Bill Slider mystery series, but I discovered that Morland Dynasty series back in the 1980s and have been a fan ever since.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
