“Alone” Tops This Week’s Top 25 Under $5

Every Sunday, we offer up a list of the Top 25 Bargain Bestsellers in the Kindle Store: the bestselling fiction for $5 or less.

This week, Lisa Gardner’s Alone moves up three spots to claim the #1 place as the bestselling fiction title priced at $5 or under in the Kindle Store.  From Booklist:

It was bad enough that Catherine Gagnon survived a horrible childhood abduction where for a month she lived in a cave and was the plaything for her sicko abductor. But now, 25 years later, she faces tragedy again as she fights to keep her son, Nathan. One chilly November night, a police sniper kills her husband, Jimmy, in response to her 911 call claiming he was about to hurt Nathan. Jimmy’s death means that his parents, an influential judge and his blue-blooded wife, are more determined than ever to take Nathan from Catherine, whom they see as unfit to mother their only grandchild. True, the birth of Nathan mentally paralyzed Catherine, who could not get past the memories of her abduction and her emotionally absent parents. But is she really the monster the Gagnons and their PI make her out to be? Massachusetts state police special-ops officer Bobby Dodge, the sniper who took out Jimmy, doesn’t think so, and unwittingly falls under the spell of the manipulative widow. A twisted, effective psychological thriller.

Amanda Hocking continues to dominate bestselling bargain-priced fiction in the Amazon Kindle Store, with all three of her Trylle Trilogy paranormal romance series, as well as all four of her My Blood Approves vampire series represented in the Top 25.
