Pre-order price drop and a review preview

Cast Iron CookingCast-Iron Cooking by Rachel Nairns is scheduled for release 9 August 2016, but both the ebook and the paperback editions are discounted today. I received an advanced reading copy several weeks ago, and my review will be posted next week. I love cast-iron cookware, and so does Rachel Nairns.

The book includes a bit of history, several tips on preparing, rescuing and using cast iron, and a lovely collection of recipes. I never even thought of baking apples in cast iron, but I’ve been eagerly anticipating apple season since I saw the recipe here for doing so.

Description:  Get the most from your cast-iron cookware with 40 fabulous recipes especially designed for cast iron, from a full English breakfast to chilaquiles, pan pizza, cheesy beer fondue, Korean fried chicken, vegetarian chili, mango curry, party nuts, two kinds of cornbread, baked apples, gingerbread — and the perfect grilled cheese sandwich! You’ll also learn how to buy the cast-iron pots and pans that are right for you and how to care for them successfully. Digital list price:  $9.99 (USD), pre-order for $6.99 (USD). Paperback list price $12.95 (USD), pre-order for $10.99 (USD).

Previously reviewed, now reduced

Reining in Murder (A Carson Stables Mystery) by Leigh Hearon is now

Kindle edition now discounted to $1.99
Kindle edition now discounted to $1.99

discounted to $1.99. I reviewed this one prior to its release, and, although I recommended it, I did so with reservations because I think readers who aren’t horse crazy like me might have some trouble with some of the vocabulary.  So, I defined all those equine terms for my readers. If you like cozy mysteries but passed when it was first released, you might want to reconsider now that it’s on sale.

See my earlier review, especially if you need help with the lingo: Sis’s original review.

Description:  When horse trainer Annie Carson rescues a beautiful thoroughbred from a roadside rollover, she knows the horse is lucky to be alive…unlike the driver. After rehabilitating the injured animal at her Carson Stables ranch, Annie delivers the horse to Hilda Colbert–the thoroughbred’s neurotic and controlling owner–only to find she’s been permanently put out to pasture. Two deaths in three days is unheard of in the small Olympic Peninsula county, and Annie decides to start sniffing around. She’s confident she can track down a killer…but she may not know how ruthless this killer really is…
