A Cup of Jo (Maggy Thorsen Mysteries) by Sandra Balzo, an ARC to be published Oct. 1, 2010. Coffeehouse owner Maggie Thorsen is a suspect in the death of her chief rival in a barista competition. She has to solve the mystery, clear her name, and "heat up her love life" at the same time.
And what I brought home from the library:
TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD (The Jake Lassiter Series) by Paul Levine, published 1991, introduced readers to linebacker-turned-lawyer Jake Lassiter.
Priced for a limited time at $2.99, Levine is donating all royalties for TO SPEAK FOR THE DEAD to the Four Diamonds Fund, which supports cancer treatment and research at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital. http://www.paul-levine.com/content/jake-lassiter.asp.
PAUL LEVINE worked as a newspaper reporter, a law professor and a trial lawyer before becoming a full-time novelist. Two of his other books, Night Vision, and 9 Scorpions are also being made into e-books.
