Day 9 of Blogging the twelve days of Christmas #blog12daysxmas

It's a New Year - a great time to get into some New Fiction!

Have a look a these books just out and reserve them today on your library catalogue.

A common loss - Kirsten Tranter.  Four friends come together to mourn their lost leader.  A captivating tale of friendship, loss, loyalty and grief told in Tranter's impeccable literary style.

Foal's bread - Gillian Mears.  It's been some years since Gillian published a novel but it has been worth the wait. The Nancarrow family exist at the mercy of the harsh New South Wales bush. They are a horse jumping family tossed about by scandal, war and superstition.

Poor man's wealth - Rod Usher. El Gordo is the mayor of Higot, a dusty village in an unnamed Spanish-speaking country under military rule. He and the secret Marisol Committee dream up a plan to save the village from economic death and the exodus of its young people. They start a hoax.

The nightmare thief - Meg Gardiner. If you don't know what a psychological autopsy is you should read this book.  A crime thriller with a spin. Autumn Reiniger's birthday 'crime spree weekend' turns bad and forensic psychologist Jo Beckett has to sort out fact from fiction; killer from actor!  

The devil's queen - Jeanne Kalogridis   Confidante of Nostradamus, scheming mother-in-law to Mary, Queen of Scots, and architect of the bloody St. Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, Catherine de Medici is one of the most maligned monarchs in history. In her latest historical fiction, Jeanne Kalogridis tells Catherine’s story—that of a tender young girl, destined to be a pawn in Machiavellian games.
