Treat yourself to some laughs for only $0.99! For Rent by Erin Huss is on sale today through May 7th on Amazon. The deal is also available on Amazon UK.

A sweet, klutzy apartment manager takes on neighborhood crooks and catches the eye of a handsome handyman in this "uproariously funny" (InD'Tale Magazine) blend of chick lit and cozy mystery.

When Cambria Clyne—a 28-year-old single mom—gets the job of apartment manager at an L.A. complex, she thinks her run of bad luck is finally over. And the cute maintenance guy is certainly a nice perk. But the job is nothing like she'd imagined, especially once a crime spree takes over the community.

Cambria, confident the crime shows she’s watched on TV will help her, dons her detective hat and embarks on adventure. As the case unravels, Cambria finds that perhaps she's been a naïve accomplice all along...

Looking for a touching and suspenseful story of friendship? Letters for Scarlet by Julie C. Gardner is on sale for $0.99 today through April 30! Check out the novel on Amazon. The offer also is available in the U.K. (The novel has more than 100 five-star reviews on Amazon!)

A touching story of friendship, loss & redemption…

Twenty-eight-year old Corie Harper is visited by a ghost—in the form of a graduation letter she forgot she wrote. Although she spent a decade burying that desperate girl and her regrets, each page resurrects the past, dragging Corie back to a time when all she craved was Scarlet Hinden's friendship and Tuck Slater's heart. But she couldn't keep them both and keep her word.

Scarlet is haunted in her own way, by memories of Corie and of a night that left her wishing she were dead. But Scarlet is not only alive, she's carrying new life: a baby she never wanted and is terrified to have. Convinced she would be a disastrous mother, she questions whether or not she deserves the love of any man. Especially the father of her child.

Can the two right old wrongs and move forward together? How can friendship torn by betrayal be repaired?
