I've finished my book (Sea Glass by Maria V Snyder) and was hoping you could recommend new books for me to read. I like all Trudi Canavan books and Maria V Snyder and Kristin Cashore as well as Carola Dunn's Daisy Dalrymple series and Karin Slaughter and Patricia Cornwall. What other good books are out there??

Ruth Dugdall is a relatively new British crime writer who you may like. The Woman Before Me won the CWA Debut Dagger & Luke Bitmead Award. Here's the pitch:
They came for me, just like I knew they would. Luke had been dead for just three days.
Rose Wilks life is shattered when her newborn baby Joel is admitted to intensive care. Emma Hatcher has all that Rose lacks. Beauty. A loving husband. A healthy son. Until tragedy strikes and Rose is the only suspect.
Now, having spent nearly five years behind bars, Rose is just weeks away from freedom. Her probation officer Cate must decide whether Rose is remorseful for Luke s death, or whether she remains a threat to society. As Cate is drawn in, she begins to doubt her own judgement.
Where is the line between love and obsession, can justice be served and, if so... by what means?

If you're interested in reading 'historical' fantasy, try this Scottish epic:

"BRAVEHEART meets THE LORD OF THE RINGS."

That's how a Hollywood producer has described THE SCYTHIAN STONE series. Episode 1, THE BLACKGLOOM BOUNTY is now available in the UK Kindle format (or hardcover) followed by episode 2, THE REGENTS OF RHUM.

Highly touted in the U.S. national media, this medieval fantasy series appeals to the whole spectrum of fantasy readers but particularly to those seeking an extended story arc, a bit of romance and more 'realism' in their fantasy fare. Try a free Kindle sample on your PC, iPhone or Kindle Reader.

The Blackgloom Bounty
The Regents of Rhum

Episode 1: Pilot (What Happened on Virgil Avenue)

I posted this in another forum just because I really can't recommend this writing enough to people. "What Happened on Virgil Avenue," by Alex Lamont is a wonderful piece of urban-noire writing. He's currently releasing them all in kindle format in episodes (each episode is about 30-40 pages) weekly and episode 1 - "pilot," is really great. I'm holding out until next week for Episode 2 to be released to make a general decision but I highly recommend you check out Episode 1 now while it's on it's promotional offer!

Not so much that it's arrogant, but it is against Amazon's rules against self-promotion outside the MOA.

I've just started reading Beverly Barton's books. I've only read 2 of hers so far, but I give them 5 stars. She writes along the lines of Tess Gerritson ( also a great writer) and Karin Slaughter and I think if you enjoy reading Karin Slaughter you'd enjoy hers.
