Laydown Lowdown

With just two weeks to go before Valentine's Day, love is the air with a plethora of new releases in Romance today.  "A Town Called Valentine," by Emma Cane seems the most appropriate for the upcoming holiday. Meanwhile other contemporary romances include: "Lucky Penny," by Catherine Alderson; "Nauti Deceptions," by Lora Leigh and "Secrets of the Lost Summer," by Carla Neggers.

If you like your romance with a bit of suspense you may enjoy "Before She Dies," by Mary Burton; "Last Man Standing," by Cindy Gerard; "Next of Kin" by Sharon Sala; or "If You See Her," by Shiloh Walker. 

Supernatural romance lovers may want to warm up with "Darkest Highlander," the latest "Dark Sword" novel by Donna Grant or "Third Grave Dead Ahead" by Darynda Jones and history buffs may savor, "My Wicked Little Lies, " by Victoria Alexander.

Science Fiction fans may want to check out "Shadow Ops: Control Point," by Myke Cole; "Wrong Side of Dead" by Kelly Medig or "Article 5," by Kristen Simmons.

And we've got yet another mystery on our hands.  There were no new releases in mystery to be found last week, and all we've got for this week is "Crunch Time," by Diane Mott Davidson, the 16th entry in her "Culinary Mystery Series."  Crunch on that.

Also puzzling is the fact that there are no releases in Young Adult today either.

Perhaps YA fans could take solace with best-selling YA author Shannon Hale's latest novel, "Midnight in Austenland, " a follow-up to "Austenland."  Other fiction new releases include "Homefront," by Kristen Hannah. 

Finally, if you're not sure what to get the Sheldon Coopers in your life for Valentine's Day, you may want to consider, "Star Wars: Millenium Falcon Owner's Workshop Manual."

Happy Reading !  Don't forget to support your local bookstores whenever possible.  Just because our blog is online, it doesn't mean your shopping has to be.
