I think it's time for another round of Indie Gems!
See my previous installment.
Again, I dug for--and found--some shiny nuggets of gold in the giant mine that is Amazon:
Remember When by T. Torrest
Young Adult Contemporary. This one was a rare find. I downloaded this as a freebie a while ago, not expecting much. But what I got was a sweet, sexy, well-written romance that I could not put down. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a pleasure to spend time with these characters. And it's set in the 90s, when I was a teen. The sequel to this is out today and I can't wait to read it.
Branded by K.L. Hawker
Young Adult Fantasy. This one has romance, adventure, mystery, and a fast-moving, engaging plot. Really fun, well-written read. There are virtually NO typos in this book, which I always appreciate. Branded is the first in a trilogy. Part two, Stranded, is already out. I haven't had a chance to read it yet but I'm looking forward to it.
The Answer to Your Question by Paulette Alden
Adult Thriller. I got this as a freebie as well, again not expecting much. I knew from the first chapter that I'd like it. It has kind of a creepy feel to it, and the story is very compelling. I read it in one sitting. It's set in 1968, and there are a couple of problems with 21st-century-sounding dialogue, but it doesn't take away from the story. Worth the read, for sure.
And that concludes another edition of Indie Gems. Stay tuned for more.
