The official patter:
"Paris, 1923

The daughter of a scandalous mother, Delilah Drummond is already notorious, even amongst Paris society. But her latest scandal is big enough to make even her oft-married mother blanch. Delilah is exiled to Kenya and her favorite stepfather's savannah manor house until gossip subsides.

Fairlight is the crumbling, sun-bleached skeleton of a faded African dream, a world where dissolute expats are bolstered by gin and jazz records, cigarettes and safaris. As mistress of this wasted estate, Delilah falls into the decadent pleasures of society.

Against the frivolity of her peers, Ryder White stands in sharp contrast. As foreign to Delilah as Africa, Ryder becomes her guide to the complex beauty of this unknown world. Giraffes, buffalo, lions and elephants roam the shores of Lake Wanyama amid swirls of red dust. Here, life is lush and teeming-yet fleeting and often cheap.

Amidst the wonders-and dangers-of Africa, Delilah awakes to a land out of all proportion: extremes of heat, darkness, beauty and joy that cut to her very heart. Only when this sacred place is profaned by bloodshed does Delilah discover what is truly worth fighting for-and what she can no longer live without."

Woo hoo! More Africa from another of the great Historical Romance authors we have right now! Also, I adore completely that lush cover. Want it as a painting on my wall!

The official patter:
"It's finally time! Detective Lindsay Boxer is in labor--while two killers are on the loose.

Lindsay Boxer's beautiful baby is born! But after only a week at home with her new daughter, Lindsay is forced to return to work to face two of the biggest cases of her career.

A rising star football player for the San Francisco 49ers is the prime suspect in a grisly murder. At the same time, Lindsay is confronted with the strangest story she's ever heard: An eccentric English professor has been having vivid nightmares about a violent murder and he's convinced is real. Lindsay doesn't believe him, but then a shooting is called in-and it fits the professor's description to the last detail.

Lindsay doesn't have much time to stop a terrifying future from unfolding. But all the crimes in the world seem like nothing when Lindsay is suddenly faced with the possibility of the most devastating loss of her life."

For all those Women Murder Club addicts out there... I know there are a lot of you, one of them I'm even related to.

The official patter:
"The Dragon Rebellion has begun, bringing the Vikings' darkest hour upon them. Hiccup has become an outcast, but that won't stop him from going on the most harrowing and important quest of his life. He must find the Dragon's Jewel in order to save his people...but where should he begin?

Don't miss Hiccup's most dangerous adventure yet!"

Oh, I really have to get to these books. I loved the movie and I generally love books more then movies, so yeah, I really have got to read these...


I had no idea there were "How to Train your Dragon" books! How cool. I loved the movie, and Toothless reminds me oddly of my dog...

I am pumped for "A Spear of Summer Grass." I really enjoyed the Lady Julia books, even though I wasn't a huge fan of "The Dead Travel Fast." I'm also really excited that Susanna Kearsley's "The Firebird" is out tomorrow in Canada. I think I'll be making an account just so I can get my hands on it a few weeks before the US release.

Oh yes do! Also the "How to Train Your Dragon" books come in really cool boxed sets... so they're even harder to resist. Jealous you get Kearsley's new book early, I was lucky enough to meet her last year in Chicago, she's so nice.
