Laydown Lowdown

Are you as burnt out by taxes as I am ?  Today is the due date for filing your income taxes.  I took it down to the wire and just finished my paperwork last night.  Hopefully, you can relax now with some of today's new releases.

First up in YA is "The Last Echo," the latest in "The Body Finder," series by Kimberly Derting.  Fortunately for fans, the title is deceiving and this is not the last story about teenaged Violet and her uncanny ability to sense dead bodies.  In this installment Violet advances from helping her local police department to working for a FBI style investigation team to stop a serial killer.  This series mixes a lot of heart with thrilling mystery.  The previous installment, "Desires of the Dead," is new in paperback today. 

Meanwhile, over in Romance you'll find "Fifty Shades Darker," and "Fifty Shades Freed," the second and third novels in EL James', best-selling "Fifty Shades" trilogy.  In case you missed it, check out my review of the first installment here and for and alternative review, check out my best friend's review on her site, Chicks Dig Books.  Best-selling author, Nora Roberts' latest novel, "The Witness is available today along with "An Accidental Afffair," by Eric Jerome Dickey.

Moving over to the Mystery section, you'll see "Unnatural Acts," the 23rd "Stone Barrington" novel by Stuart Woods, "Pirate King," the 11th entry in Laurie R. King's  "Mary Russell" series and "The Snowman," by Jo Nesbo now in paperback.

Head on over to Sci-Fi and you'll find that the entire "Acacia" trilogy by David Anthony Durham has been released in paperback.  This includes "Acacia," "Other Lands," and "Sacred Band."  "Roboapoclaypse" by Daniel H. Wilson is also new in paperback today.

Chick Lit fans will want to check out "More Like Her," by Liza Palmer and "Garden of Happy Endings," by Barbara O'Neal which are new today.

That's your Laydown Lowdown for the week of April 17th !  Happy Reading !  Remember to support your local bookstore whenever possible.  Just because our blog is online, it doesn't mean your shopping has to be :)  Also, please check back tomorrow for details on an exciting GIVEAWAY !
