Welcome to…
Read All About It – Look Who Has A New Book Coming Out!

I am always on the hunt for new books that I “must read” and new releases by my favorite authors. Rather than keeping these books all to myself I decided to make a blog post to share the good news with you.

*Please keep in mind, as most of the release dates are pretty far into the future, that the release date, cover, and even working title are not always set in stone.


Black Summer (Washington Poe, #2) by M.W. Craven

Publication Date – 6/20/2019 (UK, US – ?)

Amazon Synopsis

Jared Keaton, chef to the stars. Charming. Charismatic. Psychopath . . . He’s currently serving a life sentence for the brutal murder of his daughter, Elizabeth. Her body was never found and Keaton was convicted largely on the testimony of Detective Sergeant Washington Poe.

So when a young woman staggers into a remote police station with irrefutable evidence that she is Elizabeth Keaton, Poe finds himself on the wrong end of an investigation, one that could cost him much more than his career.

Helped by the only person he trusts, the brilliant but socially awkward Tilly Bradshaw, Poe races to answer the only question that matters: how can someone be both dead and alive at the same time?

And then Elizabeth goes missing again – and all paths of investigation lead back to Poe.


Someone We Know by Shari Lapena

Publication Date – 7/30/2019 (US & UK)

Goodreads Synopsis

Maybe you don’t know your neighbors as well as you thought you did . . .

“I’m so sorry. My son has been getting into people’s houses. He’s broken into yours.”

In a quiet, leafy suburb in upstate New York, a teenager has been sneaking into houses–and into the owners’ computers as well–learning their secrets, and maybe sharing some of them, too.

Who is he, and what might he have uncovered? As whispers start to circulate, suspicion mounts. And when a woman down the street is found murdered, the tension reaches the breaking point. Who killed her? Who knows more than they’re telling? And how far will all these very nice people go to protect their little secrets?

In this neighborhood, it’s not just the husbands and wives who play games. Here, everyone in the family has something to hide . . .

You never really know what people are capable of.


The Last Widow (Will Trent, #9) by Karin Slaughter

Publication Date – 8/20/2019 

Goodreads Synopsis

Investigator Will Trent and medical examiner Sara Linton must stop a mysterious group of domestic terrorists planning to unleash a deadly epidemic in this electrifying and all too plausible thriller.

On a serene summer Sunday, a routine admission for a run-of-the-mill surgery at Atlanta’s Emory Hospital goes tragically wrong, setting off a catastrophic wave of destruction that sends the facility and the surrounding area into lockdown. One of the city’s largest and most prestigious institutions, Emory is situated near the Centers for Disease Control, the FBI counter-terrorism headquarters, and a large children’s hospital. Anything that happens there has repercussions for the entire city, the state of Georgia, and possibly the entire nation.

A few miles away, medical examiner Sara Linton is enduring an awkward lunch with her mother, her aunt, and her boyfriend Will Trent, an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. But the sudden wail of sirens blaring in the distance cuts the uncomfortable get-together short, drawing her and Will to the scene.

Both Sara and Will are seasoned public servants trained to help in an emergency. Dedicated and courageous, they run towards a crisis while others are running away. But on this warm summer day, that instinct will lead them into lethal danger. Within an hour the situation at Emory has spiraled out of control—Sara has been taken prisoner and Will forced undercover, on a case in which thousands of lives are at stake.

That “routine admission” at Emory was the opening maneuver in a perilous game of hunter and prey that leads him out of Atlanta into the Appalachians, to a remote compound where a radical group has hatched a diabolical plan for murder on a massive scale that will rock the nation if it isn’t stopped.


The Butterfly Girl (Naomi Cottle, #2) by Rene Denfeld

Publication Date – 10/1/2019 (US & UK)

Goodreads Synopsis

A year ago, Naomi, the investigator with an uncanny ability for finding missing children, made a promise that she would not take another case until she finds the younger sister who has been missing for years. Naomi has no picture, not even a name. All she has is a vague memory of a strawberry field at night, black dirt under her bare feet as she ran for her life.

The search takes her to Portland, Oregon, where scores of homeless children wander the streets like ghosts, searching for money, food, and companionship. The sharp-eyed investigator soon discovers that young girls have been going missing for months, many later found in the dirty waters of the river. Though she does not want to get involved, Naomi is unable to resist the pull of children in need—and the fear she sees in the eyes of a twelve-year old girl named Celia. Running from an abusive stepfather and an addict mother, Celia has nothing but hope in the butterflies—her guides and guardians on the dangerous streets. She sees them all around her, tiny iridescent wisps of hope that soften the edges of this hard world and illuminate a cherished memory from her childhood—the Butterfly Museum, a place where everything is safe and nothing can hurt her.

As danger creeps closer, Naomi and Celia find echoes of themselves in one another, forcing them each to consider the question: Can you still be lost even when you’ve been found? But will they find the answer too late?


What Happens in Paradise by Elin Hilderbrand

Publication Date – 10/8/2019 (US & UK)

Goodreads Synopsis

A year ago, Irene Steele had the shock of her life: her loving husband, father to their grown sons and successful businessman, was killed in a plane crash. But that wasn’t Irene’s only shattering news: he’d also been leading a double life on the island of St. John, where another woman loved him, too.

Now Irene and her sons are back on St. John, determined to learn the truth about the mysterious life -and death – of a man they thought they knew. Along the way, they’re about to learn some surprising truths about their own lives, and their futures.

 


The Night Fire (Harry Bosch/Renèe Ballard) by Michael Connelly

Publication Date – 10/22/2019 (US & UK)

Goodreads Synopsis

Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case. Now that mentor, J.J. Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow hands Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before — the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals.

Bosch brings the murder book to Renée Ballard and asks her to help him find what about the case lit Thompson’s fire all those years ago. That will be their starting point.

The bond between Bosch and Ballard tightens as they become a formidable investigation team. And they soon arrive at a worrying question: Did Thompson steal the murder book to work the case in retirement, or to make sure it never got solved?


Nothing More Dangerous by Allen Eskens

Publication Date – 11/12/2019 (US & UK)

Amazon Synopsis

The summer of 1976 is a turning point for 15-year-old Boady Sanden. He’s managed to outrun and outwit the bullying seniors throughout his freshman year at St. Ignatius High; he’s working multiple jobs for Wally Schenicker’s ( construction company; and he finally makes a friend his own age–Thomas Elgin, son of the only black family on Boady’s side of town.

The first sign that things are shaking up is the disappearance of Ms. Lida Poe, the African-American bookkeeper at the local plastics factory. Word is that Ms. Poe split town, along with a hundred thousand dollars of company money. A new factory manager, Charles Elgin, comes down from Minnesota to clean house and track down the money–moving in right across the road from Boady and his mother.

On an overnight camping trip, Boady and Thomas make a horrible discovery in the woods: the remains of Ms. Lida Poe, who never actually left town. Furious at the sheriff’s half-hearted investigation, the boys set out to see justice done as best they can.

But in a small town like Jessup, Missouri, where family roots run deep and family grudges run long, you never can tell when the bad things from the past will seep through and poison the present.
