Reading Ahead: August 2014, part 3

Here we are with the wrap-up of suspense, thrillers and mysteries slated for August release.  I would like to say that publishers often will change release dates, and in double-checking, I found several of the novels I was hoping to share with you for next month will have to wait--they've been moved to fall or winter release dates.  All's fair in love and publishing, I guess.  Not to worry--there's still plenty to keep you occupied until then! 

Top Secret, by W.E.B. Griffin and William E. Butterworth IV

Close to Home, by Lisa Jackson

Shots Fired, by C.J. Box

Mean Streak, by Sandra Brown

Designated Daughters, by Margaret Maron

Her Last Whisper, by Karen Robards

If you're looking for an easy-reading suspense with a bit of romance in the mix, you can count on Karen Robards for that.  And if you're a mystery reader, Margaret Maron's Deborah Knott series is extremely popular.  Finally, I'd like to point out that if you're a fan of C.J. Box's Joe Pickett novels, please don't be put off by this new title, which is a collection of ten short stories about Joe Pickett and his corner of Wyoming.  Short stories are particularly perfect for summer, as you can read one in a short time, or read several together if you have a lazy afternoon free.  And if you're a fan of the series, these will give you a greater sense of the characters and the spaces that inhabit his novels.  

Wondering what's made my list for August?  I'll be back on Tuesday to share.  In the meantime, happy reading!
