Two Good Books Out this Week!!

Two of my favorite author's have new books out this week. That old mystery digger herself, Mary Higgins Clark has Just Take My Heart coming out today. I've only read a few of her books, but I have many family members who adore her mysteries. A brief synopsis:

In her new thriller, America's #1 bestselling Queen of Suspense delves into a legal battle over the guilt or innocence of a man accused of murdering his wife. Woven into her plot is an eerie, little-understood but documented medical phenomenon -- the emergence of a donor's traits and memories in the recipient of a heart transplant.

This looks like a good one and is already getting great reviews.

Also out today, the return of my favorite crime-fighting caterer, Goldy Schulz in Fatally Flaky by Diane Mott Davidson. That link also includes an excellent radio interview with Diane about this upcoming book. A synopsis:

Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz encounters Bridezilla—and murder—in another delectable novel by the New York Times bestselling author of Sweet Revenge, Dark Tort, and Double Shot.

It's been a long, rainy summer for Goldy Schulz, who is engaged in planning wedding receptions for what seems to be all of Aspen Meadow. It's bad enough that Billie Attenborough, the bride from hell, wants to move the location to the Gold Gulch Spa just a scant two days before tying the knot to her doctor fiancĂ©. Then Doc Finn, best friend of Goldy's godfather Jack, is killed when his car tumbles into a ravine. But Jack thinks Doc was murdered because of research he was doing at the spa—allegations that are confirmed when Jack himself is attacked. So Goldy dons chef's whites and goes undercover at the spa. Add in the obstreperous owner, who years ago tried to sabotage Goldy's fledgling business, and she's got her hands full.

Above all, there seems to be a clever killer on the spa grounds, watching her every move. After what befell Jack, Goldy knows that she might be next. Catering weddings, and cooking low-fat food, could be killing her—literally.

I really like this series and am looking forward to, of course, the recipes she'll have woven into her story line. They are often as good as the stories themselves!
