I am off on vacation for a week but wanted to get another blog entry done before leaving. Some of these are even Christmas themed.
Rhys Bowen has Away in a Manger coming out on November 17. This is from her Molly Murphy Sullivan series. Molly now has a family and they are out listening to carolers in 1905 New York when she hears a little girl singing Away in a Manger in a doorway. Dirty and unwashed, the little girl is yet well spoken and along with an older brother, is living with a nasty aunt. Molly has to investigate, doesn't she?
Charles Finch has the ninth in the Charles Lenox series coming out on November 17, Home by Nightfall. Lenox has two cases he is working on for his thriving detective agency. A famous foreign pianist has disappeared and numerous small crimes around his brother's home in Sussex. When visiting his brother, Lenox realizes just how strange these small crimes are. He is racing before either investigation turns deadly.
Richard Paul Evans has the second in his holiday love story Mistletoe Collection, The Mistletoe Inn, scheduled for release on November 17. Kimberly Rossetti has had two broken engagements and a divorce and is ready to fulfill at least one dream when she signs up for a 9 day romance writing workshop in Savannah, GA. There she meets Zeke, another aspiring romance writer, and together they begin to realize what is holding them back both in writing and personally.
Sherrilyn Kenyon has Born of Betrayal coming on November 3. Kenyon is a very popular urban fantasy or paranormal romance author. Her first series, Dark Hunter, was overwhelmingly popular. This is the 10th in her The League series.These are slightly more fantasy romance than paranormal. I would suggest reading the whole series in order as if you jump into the middle, you will not have the background on the characters. Fain Hauk has left his military career, planet and fiancee behind for the sake of his family. He has made a life for himself but the past is catching up to him.
Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child get together again for the number 15 in the Pendergast series, Crimson Shore, which comes out on November 10. Investigating the theft of a wine collection in the seaside village of Exmouth, MA, Pendergast and his ward Constance Greene discover a bricked-up niche that once held a crumbling skeleton.They know this because of the shackles and an overlooked finger bone. Can he possibly not investigate? Of course he has to.
Hopefully this will hold you till next week. Hope the rain has gone away for now.
