Quicksand – Carolyn Baugh

The beginning of an engrossing new suspense series featuring Philadelphia policewoman Nora Khalil

Officer Nora Khalil is used to navigating different terrains. As part of a joint task force set up by the Philadelphia Police Department, the FBI, and the local sheriff’s offices, she works to keep Philly’s mean streets safe from gang violence, while trying to honor the expectations of her traditional Egyptian-American family. She can hold her own against hardened murderers and rapists, and her years as a competitive runner ensure that no suspect ever escapes on foot.

Nora tries to keep her professional and personal lives separate, but when a mutilated body is discovered in a tough section of town, Nora must rely on both her police training and her cultural background to find out whether this is another gang-related killing or the grisly evidence of something even darker and more disturbing.

Pirateship Down – SUzanne Johnson

French pirate Jean Lafitte is tall, cobalt-eyed, broad-shouldered and immortal. What’s not to love? But New Orleans’ most esteemed member of the historical undead is headed for trouble: He’s determined to reclaim Le Diligent, his gold-laden schooner lost at sea in 1814 and recently found at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico near Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana.
The U.S. Coast Guard might beg to differ.

New Orleans’ wizard sentinel DJ Jaco and her merman friend Rene Delachaise can either lock Lafitte up or save him from himself, joining him on a road trip to Cajun country. Terrebonne Parish—not to mention its jail—might never be the same after the events of the all-new novella Pirateship Down.

Wizards and Cajun mermen, sexy shifters and undead French pirates. Welcome to the world of the Sentinels of New Orleans in this first collection of new and revised stories, along with a little Louisiana lagniappe.

The Passenger – LisaLutz

In case you were wondering, I didn’t do it. I didn’t have anything to do with Frank’s death. I don’t have an alibi, so you’ll have to take my word for it…

Forty-eight hours after leaving her husband’s body at the base of the stairs, Tanya Dubois cashes in her credit cards, dyes her hair brown, demands a new name from a shadowy voice over the phone, and flees town. It’s not the first time.

She meets Blue, a female bartender who recognizes the hunted look in a fugitive’s eyes and offers her a place to stay. With dwindling choices, Tanya-now-Amelia accepts. An uneasy―and dangerous―alliance is born.

It’s almost impossible to live off the grid today, but Amelia-now-Debra and Blue have the courage, the ingenuity, and the desperation, to try. Hopscotching from city to city, Debra especially is chased by a very dark secret…can she outrun her past?

With heart-stopping escapes and devious deceptions, The Passenger is an amazing psychological thriller about defining yourself while you pursue your path to survival. One thing is certain: the ride will leave you breathless.

  1. Le premier a l’air original, il me semble avoir entendu parler du second en bien. Nous avons plusieurs livres de Lisa Lutz à la bibliothèque, mais je n’en ai encore lu aucun. Ca viendra 😉 Profite bien de ta nouvelle récolte littéraire !

  2. Comme d’hab tu me nargues avec tes rentrées de livres, et tous en anglais bien sûr! Histoire de m’inciter à tomber du côté obscure de la force! Meg Corbyn pourrait bien m’y pousser… (et là, tu jubiles! lol)

  3. Oh un livre sur les pirates. Cela a l’air rigolo. J’aime bien les pirates.
    Je suis contente que Freak’s Squeele t’ai plu. 🙂 et que ta maman ait aimé aussi. J’espère que ce sera le cas pour ton copain également ^^ Le tome 7 (dernier tome) va justement sortir fin octobre, à mon plus grand bonheur et mon plu grand malheur car c’est vraiment ma série préférée. ^^
    Bisous Melliane.

  4. Great haul!!!! I actually haven’t heard of any of these yet. However I do think I need to add a couple to my TBR list. Hope you enjoy all your lovely new books. Have a great week and happy reading!!! STS
