April and May are big publishing months. No doubt in preparation for summer. I promise to do better about adding entries for these months. Today I will start with the big names that are coming out with titles in April. Some I may try to sell more than others who need no selling.
The first is one that needs no selling. David Baldacci comes out with The Target in April. This is the third in the Will Robie series. Robie and his partner Jessica Reel, hit men extraordinaire, are given an assignment by the President. If they are successful - it will remove a great evil but if they aren't - the President will face impeachment.
Mary Higgins Clark, although she is taking more time between books, is still quite popular. I've Got You Under My Skin is coming out in April. This one sounds good too. Laurie Morgan is the producer of a true crime, cold case television series. She has tragedy in her past also. Five years ago, her husband was murdered and the only witness was their three year old son. Their son still has nightmare about the killer and his blue eyes. The first murder they are covering for the show was a murder of a socialite 20 years ago. Laurie is being watched by a person with blue eyes.
Iris Johansen is another favorite. Live To See Tomorrow comes out in April also. Catherine Ling, a CIA operative was introduced in the Eve Duncan series title Chasing the Night when her 2 year old son was kidnapped. Catherine has her own title here. Since his kidnapping, Catherine, who has been a CIA operative since the age of 14, has not wanted to leave her son in any one's care except her mentor - Hu Chang. When Chang asks her to rescue a friend who has been imprisoned in Tibet. This will put her up against a known powerful assassin.
For those who love Downton Abbey, Barbara Taylor Bradford gives us Cavendon Hall. Taking place in Edwardian England is is the story of the sixth Earl of Mowbray and his family and the Swanns, the family that serves them. Hanging in the distance is World War I and this will change their life forever.
Next, Nevada Barr has Destroyer Angel: An Anna Pigeon Novel. Pigeon is the U.S. Park Services ranger that stars in Barr's series. She is off on a canoe trip with a paraplegic friend and his daughter plus another friend who is testing camping equipment designed for the disabled with her daughter. Armed thugs invade their campsite while Pigeon had been out on a solo canoe trip. How can she rescue her friends?
Briefly here, Lisa Scottoline has Keep Quiet coming out this month. It is a story about how a father's split second decision to protect his son changes their family life. And last but not least, Stuart Wood has Carnal Curiosity coming out. It is a Stone Barrington suspense and surprise, Stone is in love again - this time with an insurance adjuster who isn't quite yet formally divorced.
