Laydown Lowdown

Valentine's Day is just three days away and there are just three new releases in Romance today:  "Heart Trouble," by Mary Kay Andrews, "Taming a Gentleman Spy," by Maggi Andersen, and "If You Only Knew," by Dixie Lee Brown.

Meanwhile, if you're a  Mystery/Thriller fan, you're in for a treat this week as there are many new titles to chose from.  James Patterson started things off early as usual with "Private: LA," being released  yesterday. "Where Monsters Dwell," by Jorgen Brekke, "The Deliverance of Evil," by Roberto Costantni, "Killer," the 29th "Alex Delaware" novel by Jonathan Kellerman, "Nothing Personal," by Mike Offit, "She's Leaving Home," by William Shaw, and "The Cat, The Devil, and Lee Fontana," by Shirley Rousseau Murphy are all available today.

Over in Science Fiction/Fantasy, you'll find "The Waking Engine," by David Edison, "Wild Cards III: Joker's Wild," by George R.R. Martin, "The Martian," by Andy Weir, and "Judge of Ages," by John C. Wright.

If you're looking forward to the "Divergent" film but haven't read the book yet, you'll be pleased to find the novel by Veronica Roth, now in paperback with a spiffy new movie-tie-in cover.  Other new releases in Young Adult include "The Tyrant's Daughter," by J.C. Carleson, "Lady Thief," by A.C. Gaughen, "All That Glows," by Ryan Graudin, and "Split Second," by Kasie West.
