Nook Daily Find 4/21

Like Dandelion Dust ($6.64 Kindle, $6.99 B&N), by Karen Kingsbury [Hachette], is the Nook Daily Find, better than price matched on Kindle, where the companion audiobook is $3.49. I actually suspect that B&N is just late changing the price of their book (and that Amazon will price match, if it does drop).

In any case, you might bet a better deal with the omnibus edition of Like Dandelion Dust & This Side of Heaven ($8.89), just one of several omnibus editions by Kingsbury that drop the per-novel price to the $3-$5 range.
Book Description
Kingsbury delivers a powerful new novel about two parents' love for their child and the surprising lengths they will go to keep their family together when a judge rules that their adopted son must be returned to his biological father.

Jack and Molly Campbell are right where they want to be, enjoying an idyllic life with their four-year-old son Joey, and the close family and friends who live in their small hometown just outside Atlanta. Then the phone call comes from the social worker the Campbells never expected to hear from again. Three states away in Ohio, Joey's biological father has just been released from prison. He is ready to start life over, but not without his son.

A judge's quick decision deals a devastating blow to the Campbell family: Joey must be returned to his biological parents. The day after the ruling, in the silent haze of grief and utter disbelief, they watch their son pick a dandelion and blow the feathery seeds into the wind.

In the days that follow the ruling, Jack Campbell has a desperate and dangerous thought. What if they can devise a way out? Then they could take Joey and simply disappear . . . LIKE DANDELION DUST.
