Diane | 5651 comments Who doesn't love cheap travel deals? Travel through books to your favorite destinations for free or dirt cheap!

Post any information for finding free and inexpensive e-books, Kindle, or Nook books here.

Check back often, because some e-book price changes are very time-limited!

Dee (austhokie) | 399 comments i read these ones not long ago and they were cute -

Death By Honeymoon - Barbados (.99 cents)

DEATH BY DIVORCE (Book #2 in the Caribbean Murder Series) - Grenada (3.99) - I was willing to pay a little bit more for this one since the first was soo cheap...

it looks like she might be writing more in the series based on how the 2nd one ended
