Free Reads

The Best Things in Life are Free
That sentiment is true when it comes to the free reads the Petit Fours and Hot Tamales blog authors have to offer. Previews include our “book on a blog” – our first Blog Novel Aspen Exposé – and the long-awaited sequel, Atlanta Exposé, as well as links to spooky stories from our October Treasure Hunt, Fairy Tales from the Petit Fours and more. Whether the reads are hot or sweet, you won’t want to miss them. Did we mention, they’re FREE?

The Undercover Librarian

Our December, 2011 free read:
Désirée Devereaux is not your average librarian. She can judge a book by its cover. In fact, every time she picks up a book, she picks up vibes, flashes, emotions-even crimes committed by the last patron who checked it out. When Désirée’s boss, the Branch Manager , turns up dead in the Mysteries section of the new branch of the Harrow County Public Library, Désirée is at the head of a list of suspects, which includes FedEx guy, Skirt Boy and a member of the Hookers.

Dead bodies start turning up all over the stacks and that spells Murder with a Capital M right here in Harrow County. But Hunky Detective Danny Bonner is on the case and as he gets close to Désirée, he begins to realize there’s more to the sexy librarian than meets the eye. This laugh-out-loud cozy mystery/romance is a suspenseful read you’ll definitely want to check out.
