While I was traveling last month a lot of new books showed up in my mailbox. Some of these I had already heard about and some are nice new discoveries. There are a couple that are at the very top of my must read list and I would love to hear what you think.

The Emerald Lie by Ken Bruen. The latest Jack Taylor novel.
Amour Provence by Constance Leisure. A lush, evocative, debut novel set in Provence about the people who grow up and live and remain in two tiny neighboring villages—from the Nazi occupation to the present day—in particular, one man and one woman who have yet to find love.
The Bourbon Thief by Tiffany Reisz. A 150-year-old mystery involving a million-dollar bottle of bourbon.

That’s a lot of books! I wish I could jump in and start one of these over the weekend but I have a friend in town this weekend and I need to finish a book for my book group next week. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
