Yesterday it was Treasures in My Closet. Now, here are the May titles I suspect will be hot. They might not all make the bestseller lists, but they'll probably be in high demand.
The Columbus Affair is Steve Berry's latest thriller. Disgraced journalist sets out to save his daughter from a ruthless zealot, only to find a treasure that will change everything we know about Christopher Columbus.
Rumors are that Charlaine Harris' Deadlocked will be the last Sookie Stackhouse novel. Eric Northamn needs help from Sookie to solve the death of a woman whose body was found in his front yard. He insists she was still alive after he drank her blood. Sookie learns that the dead woman's fate has just as much to do with her as it does Eric.
And, of course there's a James Patterson release. (What month isn't there a novel by Patterson?) He joins forces with Maxine Paetro for 11th Hour, the latest Women's Murder Club book. Detective Lindsay Boxer is trying to solve the case of a murdered millionaire, discover who two headless bodies are that are found in a famous actor's garden, and find out why a reporter is trying to destroy her.
Many of you may not have heard of one of my favorite authors, Jeanne Ray. (She's Ann Patchett's mother.) Ray's latest novel is Calling Invisible Women. At fifty, Clover feels unappreciated. Then one morning, she wakes up to discover she's invisible. And, she discovers there are other women like her who were "invisible" even before they were invisible.
John Sandford's Stolen Prey takes Lucas Davenport into one of the darkest nightmares of his life as he investigates the slaying of an entire family. (Warning to dog lovers - you might not be happy with this crime scene).
Women's fiction, thrillers, lighter mysteries. There might be a book here to meet your fiction reading tastes. Anything I missed for May that you're waiting to read?
