Definition of "Action and Adventure Genre": You may ask yourself, how does an Action and Adventure ebook differ from a Thriller ebook? Fair question. They may seem similar, but the main aspect of an Action and Adventure ebook is the element of consistent physical danger as a main part of the storyline. So, while our reference to Tom Cruise and, for instance, his Mission Impossible series was slightly tongue-in-cheek, those stories would actually fall into the Action and Adventure genre. Another important aspect of the Action and Adventure genre is that the pace of the novel using action is actually just as important as character building and setting--which makes the genre differ from others in a significant fashion.
Some examples of Action and Adventure bestselling ebooks are James Patterson (most of his Alex Cross novels), Pierce Brown (Red Rising), Tom Clancy (most of his Jack Ryan novels), and A.G. Riddle (The Atlantis Gene).

Sheriff Frank asks newly-minted private detective Charlotte to help him crack the case, but she has no idea those darn gingerbread men will start showing up everywhere. What did Santa do that made them so angry? And what's the secret in his colorful Christmas-themed bureau?
"LOL Funny! I loved this book. Charlotte gets to help Frank on a case. Let's just say Gingerbread Men Reindeer and a whole lot of crazy. Oh I forgot the possum!! Read this book Janet Evanovich fan's will love this book." ~ Deborah Kesner ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Charlotte is forced to split her time between searching for Santa's killer and helping Declan's crazy ex-Stephanie stop a corrupt district attorney in exchange for a book that could help solve more crimes in the future. She never thought she'd help calculating Stephanie with anything...but as this story comes to it's shocking ending, you'll find it could be Stephanie who's finally bitten off more cookie than she can chew...
If Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum and the Golden Girls had a baby, it would be the Pineapple Port series! Fans of Lilian Jackson Braun, Jana DeLeon and Rita Mae Brown won’t be able to get enough of this wild, funny, thrilling corner of Florida!
(There is no cliffhanger for the Christmas mystery in this book. There are ongoing story sub-plots that run through the entire series, but all books in the series can be enjoyed as standalone.)
"This is such a witty episode. I actually laughed aloud at the opossum scene. The Christmas theme is an added plus that features heavily in the plot. I loved that the plot held 2 mysteries. Declan's psycho ex draws Charlotte into one of her court cases, and a dead body turns up. By the end of the book, that thread is left open, but doesn't detract from the read. As usual, this is a clean read with no sex and few curse words. It's also well-edited. Highly recommended." ~ Author Felicia Mires ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

When a local art shop owner is murdered, Jessica Fletcher is surprised to once again be working alongside her old friend MI-6 agent Michael Haggerty to solve the case in the newest mystery in this USA Today bestselling series.
When Nelson Penzell, co-owner of a local art and treasure store in Cabot Cove, is murdered, the nail tech from Jessica Fletcher's favorite beauty parlor is the main suspect. After all, she's the one who ran out of the store screaming, covered in blood, and holding the murder weapon. Jessica is positive that despite the circumstances, Coreen can't possibly be guilty, and is determined to prove it.
When Michael Haggerty, handsome MI-6 agent and Jessica's old friend, is caught snooping around the victim’s home, it's quickly apparent to her that she was right. Nelson has always had a bit of a reputation for being a rake, but Haggerty is sure his sins go far beyond what anyone in town imagined. If she wants to clear Coreen's name, Jessica will have to work alongside Michael to find out who killed Nelson—and maybe help bust a crime ring in the process.
A girl who uses her illusions to fool the world into thinking she's just like all the other magi.
A dragon who sees through her lies.
Together they just might survive a world that wants to control or destroy them both.
Kimberly may wield ultimate cosmic power, but even a mage has to pay the rent. No one will hire her for her magic talents until she's got the credentials, so she’s stuck in a crappy rent controlled apartment with her mother, yearning for treats she can't afford at her part time job in a café, counting down the days until she graduates the secret Blackhollow Academy school for magi. Only then will she have the certificate she needs to land her dream job in a coven.
The problem? She needs a familiar to graduate.
As an illusionist, she doesn't have the ability to summon or create a familiar of her own. Her only option is to convince a supernatural creature to let her bind it instead. Since having a powerful Other at her beck and call would guarantee her a place in a coven after she graduates—and legendary treasure hoards are an added bonus—she thinks binding a dragon as her familiar will solve all her problems...
Because sometimes a girl needs a dragon, not a knight.
"It was an interesting mix of Harry Potter meets Lost Girl, meets Dresden – and it worked."

"Magic, dragons, romantic tension. What more could you ask for? I am a sucker for most fantasy but it's been a long time since I found I book I couldn't put down and I could not put this book down!"
-Amazon Reader ★★★★★
"Part of having a successful book or series that deals with magic or fantastical things is creating a believable world, and the author did just that. There are the obvious things like whether magical creatures are out in the open or hidden, and who the different beings are (from vampire to dragons to your average magical human), but the book went beyond those details and dealt with discrimination, slavery, powerful leaders that could misuse their influence, and the taboo-ness of magical and non-magical co-mingling. This was a well developed world and I loved to soak in all the details of it."
-Amazon Reader ★★★★★
"I love the writing style. I love the plot line, I love the surprises. Yeah I just loved this one."
-Amazon Reader ★★★★★
"This was a strong start to a new series. I think that fans of the Other books, Kim Harrison The Hollows series, Kelly Armstrong Otherword series, and Jeanne Stein's Anna Strong Vampire series will enjoy this book."

They say everybody has a double. What if yours is hunting you?
A cynical detective. A dangerous beauty. Estranged twins, one a recluse, the other a playboy — at least one of them insane.
McBride is an aging Boston private eye. Sylvia is his threatening and seductive partner. Gray hires them to find his brother before his brother finds him. The only clue is an unsourced photo of the twin in the stands at a Bruins game — or is it Gray himself? Increasingly convinced their client is either insane or playing a double game — or both — McBride and Sylvia chase dead-ends across Boston, New York, and hockey — and when Gray's doppelganger finally turns up (with the equally colorful name of Brown), Gray vanishes. The Brown version is every bit as odd as the Gray: but where Gray is paranoid, rootless, and secretive, Brown lives amidst an endless party in a suburban mansion. McBride arranges a meet — and that's when the cat-and-mouse game really gets weird.
In The Brothers Brown & Gray, Gary Glass twists noir fiction into strange new shapes that make for compulsive reading.
