Laydown Lowdown

I normally don't include e-books in the Laydown Lowdown but today I have to make a special exception.  Caroline B. Cooney, the best-selling author of "The Face of the Milk Carton," (and its three sequels about heroine Janie's struggles to reconnect with her birth parents after being kidnapped as a toddler) has written an all new short-story "What Janie Saw," this e-book exclusive is a bridge between the fourth novel, "What Janie Found," and the forthcoming fifth novel, "Janie Face to Face," which will be available in early 2013! The previous novels are also all being re-released today with sleek new covers. 

Other new releases in YA include "Alice on Board," the penultimate book in Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's "Alice" series.  "Soul Seekers: Fated," the first in a new series by best-selling author Alyson Noel and "Taken by Storm," by Jennifer Lynn Barnes are also available today.

Over in Romance, you'll find the latest novel by best-selling author Cherry Adair, "Vortex," along with "Midnight's Master," by Donna Grant, "Lethal Rider," by Larissa Ione, and "Beautiful Sacrifice," by Elizabeth Lowell

Travel into the Sci-Fi/Fantasy section and you'll see "2312," by Kim Stanley Robinson, "Dark Magic," by James Swan, and the latest "Adversary Cycle," novel, "Nightworld," by F. Paul Wilson.

Moving onto Mystery, you'll find "Cliff Walk," by Bruce DeSilva, "A Beautiful Death," by Charles Finch, "Don't Ever Get Old," by Daniel Friedman, and " Red Means Run," by Brad Smith.

Happy Reading !  Remember to support your local bookstores whenever possible.
