Deal of the Week: Tragedy at Two, Dead In Red, Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott

As I surf the Web for book deals, I share my favorite purchases with you. I am not affiliated with any of the companies in this post.

Any fans of writer Ann Purser? Her ninth book in the Lois Meade series, Tragedy at Two, was released in December. I bought a new hardback copy from PBS Market for $3.09 and one credit. As of press time they still have copies available. Amazon wants $16.29 for the same book so this is a good buy.

My next deal is an autographed copy of Dead in Red written by L.L. Bartlett. You can buy a new copy directly from the author, before it goes out of print, for $14.00 which includes postage (compared to $23.12 on Amazon). This Agatha Award nominee also has a popular Booktown Mystery series written under the name Lorna Barrett.

I've been looking for a deal on The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott by Kelly O'Connor McNees. The best value so far is from Strand Books in New York City. They are selling new copies for $12.47 (postage extra). When I checked this morning there were 8 books left.

Did you find any deals this week?


  1. No deals for me this week... yet! I had a great coupon for Half Price Books last week but couldn't make it. Darn.

  2. I'll get back to you on book deals (I get them all of the time) after my book-buying moratorium is over.

    I'm so jealous!

  3. Great deals. Thanks for sharing.

    I have an award for you on my blog

  4. Bookmooch is my favorite "book deal"- new-to-me books for the price of shipping my used books out. This is the first time I noticed you live on Kauai- lucky! I visited there several years ago and loved it. So beautiful!

  5. Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a follower now. I love this feature and look forward to seeing more of your deals.


Aloha! Thanks for taking time to talk story. Your comment will be posted soon.
