Library Finds: Two New Releases

I found two books in the New Releases section of the library today! There was no plan to borrow books, just to browse, but I couldn't resist these.

Murder at the Lanterne Rouge: An Aimee Leduc Investigation set in Paris by Cara Black

Book Description:
Private investigator Aimée Leduc is happy her business partner René has found a girlfriend. Aimée’s instincts tell her Meizi, the supposed love of René’s life, isn’t trustworthy. Meizi disappears during a Chinatown dinner to take a phone call and never returns to the restaurant. Minutes later, the body of a young man, a science prodigy and volunteer at the Musée, is found shrink-wrapped in an alleyway—with Meizi’s photo in his wallet.

I've Got Your Number: A Novel by Sophie Kinsella

Book description:
Poppy Wyatt is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. She lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill and her phone is stolen. She spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Perfect! Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life.

Find any good books at your library recently?


  1. I have been trying to read from my bookshelves since the first of the year in order to whittle down my stacks, but like you, I just can't resist picking something up at the library every now and then :)

    I like Sophie Kinsella's books -- but I like the ones she writes as Madeleine Wickham even more -- they are Brit Chick Lit, and tend to be a bit snarkier than her Kinsella books.

  2. I've Got Your Number is definitely on my list!

  3. Sophie Kinsella books are always good for a laugh. Enjoy!

  4. I love Kinsella books and as someone said the ones she writes at Wickham as well. Now I have to find this one.
    THanks for the heads up. Didn't know she had a new one.
    Blessings, Barb
    my novel VADA FAITH is available as an ebook on Kindle at Amazon free this week end.
    If you don't have kindle you can download one free to your computer. I did and I love it!

  5. I try to stick to audio books from the library, but every once in a while, I'll grab a few others as well. ENJOY!

  6. Browsing is so much fun....that's part of the allure of the library for me!

  7. I read The Shopaholic series when I went through post-partum depression and they made me laugh!
