Sunday Salon: Tahoe Ghost Boat by Todd Borg

Welcome to the Sunday Salon where bloggers share their reading each week. Also visit It's Monday: What Are You Reading hosted by Book Journey, and Mailbox Monday each week.

New books that arrived last week include one from thriller writer Todd Borg that I've been looking forward to: 
Tahoe Ghost Boat
This is the 12th in the Owen McKenna series set in Tahoe NV and Tahoe CA. Of course they do not have to be read in sequence as each is a complete mystery novel. It will be published in August, 2014 by Thriller Press.  Book description: When a gang led by a killer the FBI calls Mikhailo the Monster takes 15-year-old Gertie as the centerpiece of an extortion plot, the girl's mother calls Tahoe Detective Owen McKenna for help.

Stanley's Garage
Stanley's Garage came as a surprise from the publisher, a children's picture book to show what a gas station and garage does and the tools it uses for fixing and maintaining cars. It was published May 8, 2014.

Fatal Fortune
Fatal Fortune is the 12th in the Psychic Eye mystery series and it too can be read out of sequence as a complete cozy mystery novel. Abby Cooper, a psychic, heads to Las Vegas to prove that her friend did not shoot a man in cold blood, as a video tape seems to suggest.

Books for book tours have been arriving also:

Dark Aemilia

Picador published Dark Aemilia on May 27, 2014, the story of William Shakespeare's Dark Lady, his Muse and one true love who inspired many of his sonnets. A tale of passion and sorcery in 17th century England.

The Ghost Bride

The Ghost Bride: In colonial Malaya in the sleepy town of Malaya, Li Lan's family wants her to become a ghost bride for the Lim family's only son, who recently died in mysterious circumstances. A traditional ghost marriage is used to placate a restless spirit and Li Lan would be trapped in this ghost marriage for life. Night after night, she is drawn into the shadowy parallel world of the Chinese afterlife.

Bitter Greens

Bitter Greens is based on the Rapunzel fairy tale...French novelist Charlotte-Rose de la Force has been banished from the court of Versailles by the Sun King, Louis XIV, after a series of scandalous love affairs. At the convent, she is comforted by an old nun, Sœur Seraphina, who tells her the tale of a young girl who, a hundred years earlier, is sold by her parents for a handful of bitter greens...

I am reading a bunch of cozies as well, including
