Please Note: This is an old post, but my FREE ebook store on Amazon is always updated on a weekly basis, with over 50 FREE ebooks for Kindle. I have a separate category for fiction and nonfiction. And I only include books from reputable authors and publishers :) I hope you enjoy!
You can find my most recent top 10 list here, or by searching “free books” on the site.
I have to admit that I am really a print book gal. I love to feel the book in my hands while I’m reading. However, there are many advantages to eReaders. And one of them is the abundance of free books!
The only problem with that is wading through all of them to find the good-quality ones. I have tried to do that for you, with an Amazon store that I update at least weekly full of the latest and greatest high-quality ebooks, from trusted authors and publishers.
Last time, I highlighted a bunch of light-hearted, Christian historical romance (which is MY preferred genre), but today I’m sharing some mystery/crime/action books, because I know some of you enjoy those as well.
Note: I have not read all of these books, but they are categorized as Christian books, and they are free so I am sharing them. This is an affiliate link, so if you go on to purchase something else after the free book, I may receive a small percentage. Thank you for your support. All books were $0.00 when added (6/15), but the price is subject to change, so please double check before purchasing.
Top 5 FREE Fiction
1. Relentless by Robin Parrish. Published by Bethany House.
“In the space of a breath, what he thought was his life…shattered. Grant Borrows has been Shifted- in the silence between heartbeats, his whole life fundamentally altered. There’s another man in the world wearing his face and living his life. What’s more, the man staring back from his mirror is a stranger. But the changes don’t stop at skin-level. Inexplicably, he’s able to affect objects around him by simply thinking about them. And as he soon learns, he’s become the central figure in a vast web of intrigue that stretches from an underground global conspiracy to a prophecy dating back over seven thousand years. Enemies and allies find him at every turn, but one thing they learn all too soon is that you don’t want to push Grant Borrows too far…”

Despite her oddball humor and unconventional snooping, Ivy soon becomes discouraged by her failure to turn up any solid clues. And after Ivy witnesses something ominous and unexplained, she can’t resist putting her investigative powers to work again. Even the authorities’ attempts to keep Ivy out of danger and her nosy neighbor’s match-making schemes can’t slow her down. But will the determination that fuels this persistent, quirky sleuth threaten her very safety?

3. Can I have Joy in My Life? By R. C. Sproul. Reformation Trust Publishing (Note: The entire Crucial Questions Series is free)
Joy is a popular topic in Western culture today. Books explain how to find joy in a wide variety of activities. We speak of “joyous” occasions such as weddings and births. We sing about “Joy to the World” at Christmas. “Joy” remains a popular name for girls. But given the extent to which joy seems to be on our minds, few people seem to have it or even know what it is. In this Crucial Questions booklet, Dr. R.C. Sproul cuts through the confusion surrounding this popular but misunderstood attribute, showing the one sure path to deep, lasting joy—a relationship with God through Jesus Christ. By abiding in Christ, Dr. Sproul shows, we may experience fullness of joy—a joy that transcends unhappy circumstances and even permits us to rejoice with others because of the blessed hope Christ provides.
