New Jodi Picoult and P.D. James books to gobble up

I know there are legions of Jodi Picoult fans out there, and I'm excited to tell you that she has a new book coming out at the end of February. It's called Lone Wolf and it's about an estranged son who has to decide whether or not to terminate his comatose father's life support.

I didn't know that P.D. James is a Jane Austen fan. Her latest book, Death Comes to Pemberley, is a mystery set six years after Pride and Prejudice. Wickham is the victim!

An homage to scrapbooking, The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt by Caroline Preston tells the story of young aspiring writer/flapper through a collection of more than 600 pieces of 1920s memorabilia.

In January, you can delve into Joshaua Jackson's A Grown-Up Kind of Pretty, a book about a line of Southern women who each had their daughters at 15. The current 15 year old is getting anxious, but then the long-buried body of a baby is found in the back yard, the baby her mother actually gave birth to 15 years ago.
