Free Fridays: All He Saw Was the Girl + English Speed Reading

Posted by  × April 4, 2014 at 7:37 am


April 4, 2014: Today’s Free Fridays book selection is ALL HE SAW WAS THE GIRL by Peter Leonard (son of Elmore) — an intriguing crime novel Carl Hiaasen called “Great storytelling.” Happy Friday, and happy reading!

Rome: McCabe and Chip, two American exchange students, are about to become embroiled with a violent street gang, a beautiful Italian girl, and a flawed kidnapping plan.

Detroit: Sharon Vanelli’s affair with Joey Palermo, a Mafia enforcer, is about to be discovered by her husband, Ray, a secret service agent.

Brilliantly plotted and shot through with wry humor, ALL HE SAW WAS THE GIRL sees these two narratives collide in the backstreets of Italy’s oldest city.


April 4, 2014: Today’s Free Fridays app selection is ENGLISH SPEED READING – a handy app that’s perfect for book lovers!

Learn how to speed read — and actually remember what you read! With ENGLISH SPEED READING, you’ll learn to use your peripheral vision to quickly grasp large text portions and  increase your speed of perception by means of what’s called “tachistoscopic recognition.”



 ”John Grisham has written another beauty in SYCAMORE ROW,” says today’s Free Fridays author Peter Leonard. “He brings Jake Brigance back from A Time to Kill in what is a highly-charged, tremendously suspenseful morality tale that’s impossible to put down. I highly recommend it.”





In celebration of today’s Free Fridays offering, Peter Leonard’s publisher, The Story Plant, is discounting six additional titles featuring great characters to just $1.99 this weekend:

ANYTHING, Michael Baron

Acclaimed author Michael Baron again draws readers into a world of deep emotion, compelling relationships, and heartfelt humor — and this time, he adds a touch of fantasy. Ken and Melissa are at the dawn of a magnificent life together. While searching for the perfect wedding present for Melissa, Ken stumbles into a mysterious shop. There, he is given the magical opportunity – to look in on Melissa when she was a girl — what seems like an incredible blessing. Until he discovers a terrible secret in Melissa’s past….

GOODNIGHT, BRIAN, Steven Manchester

Fate was working against little Brian Mauretti. The food that was meant to nourish him was poisoning him instead, and the doctors said the damage was devastating and absolute. Fate had written off Brian. But fate didn’t count on a woman as determined as Brian’s grandmother, Angela DiMartino – who everyone knew as Mama. Loving her grandson with everything she had, Mama endeavored to battle fate. Fate had no idea what it was in for.
