Psychological Fiction
Tips for Living by Renee Shafransky
https://www.amazon.com/dp/1503949...lp_tb_cv_0

On the day Nora discovered that her husband, Hugh, had gotten another woman pregnant, she made a vow: I will come back to life no matter how long it takes…

It's taken Nora three years. With the help of her best friend, she fled New York City for a small resort town, snagged a job as the advice columnist for the local paper, and is cautiously letting a new man into her life. But when Hugh and his perfect new family move into a house nearby, Nora backslides. Coping with jealousy, humiliation, and resentment again is as hard as she feared. It's harder still when Hugh and his wife are shot to death in their home.

If only Nora could account for the night of the murders. Unfortunately, her memories have gone as dark as her fantasies of revenge. But Nora's not the only one with a reason to kill—and as prime suspect in the crime, she'd better be able to prove it.




Historical Fiction
As Good as True by Cheryl Reid
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071JXW...lp_tb_eb_1

A powerful and haunting novel of a woman's broken past and the painful choices she must make to keep her family and her home.

August 1956. After a night of rage and terror, Anna Nassad wakes to find her abusive husband dead and instinctively hides her bruises and her relief. As the daughter of Syrian immigrants living in segregated Alabama, Anna has never belonged, and now her world is about to erupt.

Days before, Anna set in motion an explosive chain of events by allowing the first black postman to deliver the mail to her house. But it's her impulsive act of inviting him inside for a glass of water that raises doubts about Anna's role in her husband's death.




Thriller
Punishment (Detective Barnes Series)
by Scott J. Holliday
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072K45...lp_tb_eb_2

Detroit-based homicide detective John Barnes has seen it all—literally. Thanks to a technologically advanced machine, detectives have access to the memories of the living, the dying, and the recently dead. But extracting victims' experiences firsthand and personally reliving everything up to the final, brutal moments of their lives—the sights, the sounds, the scents, the pain—is also the punishment reserved for the criminals themselves.

Barnes has had enough. Enough of the memories that aren't his. Enough of the horror. Enough of the voices inside his head that were never meant to take root…until a masked serial killer known as Calavera strikes a little too close to home.

Now, with Calavera on the loose, Barnes is ready to reconnect, risking his life—and his sanity. Because in the mind of this serial killer, there is one secret even Barnes has yet to see…





Contemporary Fiction
Not Perfect: A Novel by Elizabeth LaBan
[https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074CFP...lp_tb_eb_3

From Elizabeth LaBan, the acclaimed author of The Restaurant Critic's Wife, comes a captivating and very funny novel about a wife and mother's fall from grace, and why keeping up appearances is not her biggest secret.

Tabitha Brewer wakes up one morning to find her husband gone, leaving her no way to support herself and their two children, never mind their upscale Philadelphia lifestyle. She'd confess her situation to her friends—if it wasn't for those dreadful words of warning in his goodbye note: "I'll tell them what you did."

Instead, she does her best to keep up appearances, even as months pass and she can barely put food on the table—much less replace a light bulb. While she looks for a job, she lives in fear that someone will see her stuffing toilet paper into her handbag or pinching basil from a neighbor's window box.

Soon, blindsided by catastrophe, surprised by romance, and stunned by the kindness of a stranger, Tabitha realizes she can't keep her secrets forever. Sooner or later, someone is bound to figure out that her life is far from perfect.






Mystery
Twist of Faith Hardcover by Ellen J. Green
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071FT6...lp_tb_eb_4


When family secrets are unearthed, a woman's past can become a dangerous place to hide…

After the death of her adoptive mother, Ava Saunders comes upon a peculiar photograph, sealed and hidden away in a crawl space. The photo shows a shuttered, ramshackle house on top of a steep hill. On the back, a puzzling inscription: Destiny calls us.

Ava is certain that it's a clue to her elusive past. Twenty-three years ago, she'd been found wrapped in a yellow blanket in the narthex of the Holy Saviour Catholic Church—and rescued—or so she'd been told. Her mother claimed there was no more to the story, so the questions of her abandonment were left unanswered. For Ava, now is the time to find the roots of her mother's lies. It begins with the house itself—once the scene of a brutal double murder.

When Ava enlists the help of the two people closest to her, a police detective and her best friend, she fears that investigating her past could be a fatal mistake. Someone is following them there. And what's been buried in Ava's nightmares isn't just a crime. It's a holy conspiracy.

Literary Fiction

The Birdwoman's Palate
by Laksmi Pamuntjak
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B071HXV...lp_tb_eb_5

In this exhilarating culinary novel, a woman's road trip through Indonesia becomes a discovery of friendship, self, and other rare delicacies.

Aruna is an epidemiologist dedicated to food and avian politics. One is heaven, the other earth. The two passions blend in unexpected ways when Aruna is asked to research a handful of isolated bird flu cases reported across Indonesia. While it's put a crimp in her aunt's West Java farm, and made her own confit de canard highly questionable, the investigation does provide an irresistible opportunity.

It's the perfect excuse to get away from corrupt and corrosive Jakarta and explore the spices of the far-flung regions of the islands with her three friends: a celebrity chef, a globe-trotting "foodist," and her coworker Farish.

From Medan to Surabaya, Palembang to Pontianak, Aruna and her friends have their fill of local cuisine. With every delicious dish, she discovers there's so much more to food, politics, and friendship. Now, this liberating new perspective on her country—and on her life—will push her to pursue the things she's only dreamed of doing.

No. It's been around for at least a year (how long I've been getting them).

It used to be called Kindle First if that rings any bells. It's been available for awhile.

Or you could checkout a book you actually want to read using Overdrive ebooks from your local library and read it on your kindle. A selection of thousands you can keep checking out from and picking a new one when finished.

Most libraries have Overdrive now and if they don't surely one nearby does.

Actually lots of libraries are dropping overdrive, they're owned by rakuten now, same company that owns Kobo. Don't know if it's because they (overdrive) don't want to support Kindle/Amazon or increased fees, etc. Kobo readers have built-in overdrive. I do know the libraries near me no longer offer overdrive. We have Hoopla for right now.
