Coming March of 2010...

Yep, another book nerd post, folks. Obviously, this is going to be a theme here.

Anyway, just a quick bit of excitement to share: Carol Goodman, one of my favorite authors, is releasing a new book in March! It's called Arcadia Falls and sounds quite good.

I've read all 6 of Goodman's novels and have been impressed with each one. She is, above all, a mystery writer, but there's always an overarching theme of family; often a single parent (typically a mom) due to the loss, either physically or mentally, of the other parent. The mystery in Goodman's novels usually require knowledge of a character's past so she frequently switches between present time and past vignettes, which I love. I'm intrigued when books have dual time periods and character's discover things about themselves with memory flashbacks. I guess it's just kind of my thing.

I highly recommend checking out any one of Carol Goodman's novels. They've been released for a while, so local libraries and used book stores typically seem to carry her work. No need to spend $15.00 on a book (unless it's a perfectly beautiful story that speaks to your soul and must have a place of honor on your bookshelf) when you can just hit up your local library!

Has anyone else read anything by this author?

ps- The Lake of Dead Languages was my first Goodman read and I was hooked immediately! The minute I finished it I hopped online and searched for any other titles by this talented began my need ( it what you will) to read every one of her books.


  1. I have not read anything by this author, but I am going to the library this week and will check her out! Thanks!

  2. Ashley- you'll have to let me know what you think if you do read her. :-)

    Emily Anne- Thanks!


Thanks for stopping by!
