Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that book bloggers are eagerly anticipating.
This week, I’m waiting rather impatiently on Murder on the Hoof by Kathryn O’Sullivan. My copy should be arriving in the mail any day now. Hooray for fun mail!
This is the second installment of her Colleen McCabe mystery series set in a picturesque beach community in North Carolina, where wild horses roam free along the ocean waves. Go here to read my review of her debut mystery, Foal Play.
Check out the book sizzler!
Looks like the perfect beach read for my upcoming trip to San Diego! What book are you waiting for this week?
“Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. This week I’m waiting on the first installment of Nora Roberts’ paranormal triology: Dark Witch (Oct. 29, 2013). Just in time for Halloween, it’s full of witchcraft, Irish legends and saucy love scenes with a swashbuckling wild tribal horseman! Yes, her books are rather predictable and formulaic, but I’d be lying if I said that her paranormal trilogies aren’t entertaining.
From the publisher: With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations—and where her destiny awaits. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package. Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself—and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope—and love—alive…
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted over at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights exciting upcoming releases. This week I’m waiting on Murder by Mocha by Cleo Coyle. It is the 10th book in the Coffeehouse Mystery series, and it just looks fabulous!
Publication date: Aug. 2, 2011. Just one day before my birthday!
A divorced, single mom in her forties, Clare Cosi is a coffee shop manager by day, an irrepressible snoop by night. When something is wrong, she considers it her mission in life to right it–and murder is as wrong as it gets.
Can coffee enhance your love life? Coffee and chocolate have long been considered aphrodisiacs. Now Clare’s Village Blend beans are being used in conjunction with a proprietary formula of exotic herbs to create a lucrative new product, Mocha Magic Coffee, billed as “a miracle brew” that will put the “magic moments” back into your relationship. Clare even plans to test this very special chocolate coffee on her boyfriend, NYPD detective Mike Quinn–when he’s off duty, of course.
The product was developed by an old friend of the Village Blend’s flamboyant, elderly owner, Madame Dreyfus Allegro Dubois. Madame’s friend is also the food and beverage editor of Aphrodite’s Village, one of the web’s most popular communities for women. This Internet site will be the exclusive place to buy Mocha Magic, which is expected to rake in millions, but not all goes well with the rollout of this product. At the launch party, the Mocha has far too many people acting loco! Then one of the website’s editors is found dead. When more of the website’s Sisters of Aphrodite start to die, Clare is convinced someone wants control of the coffee’s secret formula and is willing to kill to get it. Can Clare stir up some evidence against a bitter killer? Or will she be next on the hit list?
