Treasures from My Closet

There are some interesting titles coming out in June. They might not be destined for the bestseller lists, but I'm looking forward to some of these more than the guaranteed hits. And, you never know when you'll make a fun discovery. These are the titles hiding in my closet, due for release in June.

Whack A Mole by Chris Grabenstein
The Short Bus by Jonathan Mooney
Raven Black by Ann Cleeves
Thirst by Pete Larson
Death at the Old Hotel by Con Lehane
The Takedown by Patrick Quinlan
City of Fire by Robert Ellis
Majestic Descending by Mitchell Graham
Volk's Game by Brent Ghelfi

For June, why don't you check out at author you're unfamiliar with? You might find a treasure.

Hi Lesa,

best, Con Lehane

I'm lucky! That's how I heard of your book. Actually I have an ARC from St. Martin's. I have a great relationship with a library marketing rep who sends me ARCs of books they want to promote.

Majestic Descending - Lesa, I completely agree with you. i had a chance to read the ARC of this book and was really impressed. Graham may not be the next Grisham, but he's not far behind. The story was fun and it held my interest right up the the surprise ending. I think female readers are going to love the character of Katherine Adams and the men will definitely go for John Delaney. Graham is definitely an author to watch.

Mogulman - Thanks for the heads up about Majestic Descending. I'm looking forward to it. I don't like to review them here too far before publication because readers can't get them. Thanks!

My husband is a librarian and recently brough home a publisher's galley of MAJESTIC DESCENDING because he knows I enjoy mysteries. I absolutely loved this book. It was fun from beginning to end. There were touches of humor, romance, and the plot kept me turning pages until 3:30 in the morning, ughh. In fact, I liked it so much, I went out and bought Mitchell Graham's first three fantasy books and began reading them the next day. He's an incredibly talented author, who is going to have a big hit on his hands. I'd definitely put this story up against anything out there. If it doesn't make a best seller list there ain't no justice in the world.

Sue, Thanks for the note on Majestic Descending. The notes about it are making me very eager to get to it. Thanks!
