In the "By the Book" feature in the New York Times Book Review, a trio of HarperCollins authors received a hefty dose of love from Chelsea Clinton! See the excerpt below and read the full feature here.
"...and everything the mother-son team of Charles Todd writes — I love both their Inspector Rutledge and Bess Crawford books. Jacqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs has a special home in my heart, as her books were the last I shared with my grandmother in our book club of three (with my mom) before she passed away. I just finished Deborah Crombie’s “Garden of Lamentations,” the most recent Duncan Kincaid/Gemma James novel, and stayed up far too late for someone who has to wake up early to breast-feed my son, Aidan. But it was just that good a story and that good a read."
The latest Ian Rutledge mystery, Racing the Devil, just went on sale this month. Booklist says, "[Racing the Devil]...boasting a clever story with some interesting twists, will do nothing to diminish readers’ enthusiasm for a fascinating character and some first-rate historical writing." You can get your copy here. The next Bess Crawford mystery, Casualty of War, is due in September. Visit its Edelweiss page for more details.
The next installment in Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs series, In This Grave Hour, goes on sale March 9th. There's still time to download the egalley from Edelweiss for an early read—just click here. Library Journal gave it a starred review, exclaiming, "Winspear’s compelling series entry feels very timely in light of our current political climate over issues of refugees and immigration. Fans will line up to get this installment, but it also serves as a good introduction for new readers."
Garden of Lamentations by Deborah Crombie, a LibraryReads pick for February, received a starred review from Booklist, who raved, "The strength of this series is in its characterizations, particularly those of James and Kincaid, as they balance the demanding work that they love and their family life. Another winner in a series that goes from one high point to another." Pick up your copy here.
