Nine New Novels Nicely Narrowed Near Novice Knockers


The Race For Paris by Meg Waite Clayton. Two women reporters in 1944 rush to document the liberation of Paris.

Everybody Rise by Stephanie Clifford. Manhattan social climbers.

The Girl with Deep Blue Eyes by Lawrence Block. Hard Case Crime publishes a brand new novel by the always excellent Block.

Murder House by James Patterson Literary Industries and David Ellis. Your quarterly Patterson delivery. 

The Art of Crash Landing by Melissa DeCarlo. DeCarlo lives in East Texas, I wonder is she knows Joe R. Lansdale. The novel is about broke and pregnant woman heads to her mom's hometown for possible inheritance.

Pretty Girls by Karen Slaughter. Slaughter writes a lot of books. Hey, that's the same author photo as the last book. The photo is quite nice and done by Alison Rosa. Rosa's web page has an Slaughter photo, at least it looks like her anyway.

Did You Ever Have A Family by Bill Clegg.  Woman's family all die in sudden disaster. Woman takes a road trip. Do other cultures celebrate the road trip as much as American writers? Kirkus gave this a starred review, that's a big deal.

Sweet Caress by William Boyd.  I read Boyd's Restless, I liked the book.  Woman photojournalist lives through the 20th century.  Boyd lives in London and France. I wonder if he drives back and forth. Seems like that would be easier than flying, the distance cannot be that long and he could take the chunnel.

Come Rain or Come Shine by Jan Karon. Has Karon slowed down her publishing rate? This is a Mitford novel and people sure do enjoy these. Karon's photo was taken outside. It looks hot out.
