    Thank you, Michae,l for sharing. I received an email from Amy Reade this morning saying that the free download had expired. Apparently there was some miscommunication between her and her publisher. Sorry for any inconvenience this could cause.

    Good Afternoon Colleen,

    No inconvenience to me. I have NEVER taken advantage of ‘free’ book downloads. I prefer to BUY my books, and support Authors I feel I will enjoy reading their work. Although I have Kindle, I am ‘old fashioned’, I like a BOOK in my hands that I can read and add to my library!

    Thanks again,
