Dad Like a Mystery?

If your father commutes or has eyesight problems, but loves to read, then he's probably already discovered audio books. My father listened to books on tape the last few years of his life. He worked through dozens of books. Thank you to the Library System for providing this free service to the blind. I imagine the old tape players from the library are most likely gone, being replaced with audio books which are downloaded to computers, ipad, or even smart phones. That's when audio bookstores are most important. What library can keep up with all the books being produced in print and ebook format?

Anyway, maybe your dad (or uncle or mom or yourself) is a fan of audio books. If they (or you) also like a mystery, then I've got the book for you. It's got a western vibe as well. Modern western, that is. My father would have enjoyed it immensely. Of course, he might have had some bias in my favor.

When Kameron McBride receives notice she’s the last living relative of a missing man she’s never even heard of, the last thing she wants to do is head to some half-baked Oregon town to settle his affairs. But since she’s the only one available, she grudgingly agrees.

En route, she runs afoul of a couple of hillbillies and their pickup in an accident that doesn’t seem...accidental. Especially when they keep showing up wherever she goes. Lucky for her, gorgeous Deputy Mitch Caldwell lends her a hand, among other things. Her suspicions increase when the probate Judge tries a little too hard to buy the dead man’s worthless property.

Working on a hunch and trying to avoid the Judge’s henchmen, Kam probes deeper into the town’s secrets and finds almost no one she can trust. With Mitch’s help, she peels away the layers of prejudice, suicide, murder, and insanity. But someone in town doesn’t like her poking around, and when they show their intentions by shooting her through the police chief’s office window, the stakes are raised. Kam must find out what really happened to her dead relative before someone in this backward little town sends her to join him.

And she thought Oregon was going to be boring.

Amazon offers a discounted price ($13.08) if you purchase from their store. It just sends you to Audible anyway. The book is also available in ebook and print formats from Amazon (and other on-line stores which seldom sell any of my books).

Audible has the higher price ($14.95), but "Missing" can be your book of the month if you're a member or you can get it free if you sign up to be a member. That's what I made my hubby do. He got two book by signing up.

iTunes also carries Missing,

So, what are you waiting for? Oh, right! You're waiting for those freebie promo coupons. Just comment on or reply to this post wherever you see it (my blog, on G+, Facebook, or Twitter) and I'll give you a coupon for a freebie. Say Happy Father's Day and forget buying that tie or aftershave lotion.
