The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale: I read Austenland by Hale and really enjoyed it. Here's a little blurb (from Barnes and Noble) about her newest book, available June 9th --
Mormon housewife Becky Jack is seven months pregnant with her fourth child when she meets celebrity hearththrob Felix Callahan. Twelve hours, one elevator ride, and one alcohol-free dinner later, something has happened…though nothing has happened. It isn’t sexual. It isn’t even quite love. But a month later Felix shows up in Salt Lake City to visit and before they know what’s hit them, Felix and Becky are best friends. Really.
The Last Bridge by Teri Coyne: This sounds like a fantastic thriller / mystery. Only one problem -- it doesn't come out until July. Here's a little blurb (from Barnes and Noble) anyway --
After a ten-year absence, Alex “Cat” Rucker returns to her Ohio hometown because of a letter left on her mother’s kitchen table—a suicide note, carefully preserved in a Ziploc® bag, that reads:“He isn’t who you think he is. Love, Mom”Thus opens this stunning debut novel from author Teri Coyne, who, with wry humor and sharp wit, follows Alex’s journey through the traumatic experiences of her youth and the haze of her adult life.
