In Times Like These - Nathan Van Coops

In Times Like These is a the first novel in the Time Travel Adventure series. This book is free for the kindle.
Benjamin Travers works on boats at a marina in St. Petersburg Florida. Ben also plays in a Wednesday night softball league. When Ben and some friends on his softball team are hit by lightening, they wake up confused. The good news is Ben and his friends weren't seriously hurt. The bad news is they were zapped back in time to 1985. The lightening strike took place during an experiment by the St. Petersburg Temporal Studies Society. How Ben and his group survive, and some of them eventually get back to their homes in 2009, is a great story. Very highly recommended.

The Last Airship - Christopher Cartwright

The Last Airship is a Sam Reilly book. This book is available through kindleunlimited.
Sam Reilly is rich. So rich he never worries about what anything will cost. Yet Sam is an ex-navy seal and works the salvage end of his father's shipping business. Very believable. Sam is being hunted because he came into some information that other rich people want to suppress. Sam uses this information to thwart the plans of the other rich people. Sam falls in love while he's doing it. Blah blah blah. I finished the book. I won't read any more in this series, if the author decides to write some. Barely recommended.

Dear Departed - Enes Smith

Dear Departed is the second novel in the Serial Killer Chronicles. This book was free when I downloaded it. This book is still available through kindleunlimited.
The author's has an annoying tendency to leave little spoilers to future events at the end of chapters. This almost made me stop reading this book before I got a good start. I won't be reading more in the series. There are too many good books out there to waste time reading ones that annoy you.

That said, this is an engaging story. Homicide Sergeant Natalie Collins is the unknowing target of a serial killer. Unfortunately, her sister was staying with her and the killer got the wrong woman. Now Natalie has to find the killer, while she's the main suspect in her own sister's murder.

And then there's Daniel McClellan Harris. He saved Natalie's life, but he's on the run for murder too. Natalie trusts him, but should she? Together they will do their best to bring down the killer. It had a good ending anyway. Recommended.

A Death in Sweden - Kevin Wignall

A Death in Sweden is a spy thriller with a great ending. This book was free as a Kindle First selection for December. It's now $5.99.
Dan Hendricks is a free agent now. Dan is an expert at finding people who don't want to be found. Usually bad people. It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it. The CIA and other agencies around the world use people like Dan. Now someone in the CIA is trying to kill all the free agents that could be tracked back to them. Dan is on the list. Dan's going to have to find a way to stop them. Permanently. This is a great spy thriller. Plenty of mysteries to solve, bad guys to eliminate, and a little romance. Very highly recommended.
