April Titles - Part 1

I will be gone to the Public Library Association meeting next week and hope to come back with lots of news about new titles arriving in the spring and summer. The entry for this week will begin with the titles that are arriving in April.

The first title that I'm excited about is Afterwards by Rosamund Lupton. Lupton's first novel was Sister which I raved about in a prior post. Her second movel is due out on 4/24 and I have my name on the list for it. Grace tries to reach her daughter, Jenny, in a blazing school. She wakes up in the hospital badly burned along with her daughter and discovers that the fire was no accident but an attempt to end Jenny's life. The press in the U.K. have raved about the book calling it 'compulsive', 'compelling', 'searing' and 'extraordinary'. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

For cozy lovers, Rita Mae Brown & Sneaky Pie Brown are coming out with thier 20th title, The Big Cat Nap, on 4/3. Too many car accidents occur - is it extraordinarily bad luck or is something sinister going on. All Mary Minor "Harry" Harristeen's animal friends help her solve this one.

Eric Jerome Dickey's title that comes out on 4/17 is An Accidental Affair. Hollywood star Regina Baptiste's viral video starring a leading man causes her husband to physically assault him. Typical Dickey material for those who look forward to his next one.

Lastly, another thriller that looks like it will be the start of a series, The Professionals by Owen Laukkanen. Four unemplyed recent college grads turn to kidnapping to make some money. Unfortunately, they kidnap the wrong person and become the targets of both organized crime and the FBI. The beginning series stars are Kirk Stevens a veteran state investigator and Carla Windermere, a rookie investigator. Looks like a real promising start for a long run with the two.
