I usually give you a heads up as to prospective bestsellers a month out so you have time to order them from your favorite bookstore or library. To be honest, August looks a little boring this year. Once you get past Faye Kellerman's new Decker/Lazarus novel, The Burnt House, and Play Dirty by Sandra Brown, there isn't much that I expect to see on the bestseller lists.
So, do yourself a favor. One of my favorite authors has a new book coming out in August. I can't recommend him in my Treasures from My Closet post because I don't have an ARC. Jonathon King's fifth Max Freeman mystery, Acts of Nature, is due then.
If you haven't read any of the previous books, start with his first, the award-winning The Blue Edge of Midnight. No one captures the atmosphere of Florida the way Jonathon King does. He writes descriptive, intriguing mysteries. You might have time to get through the first four books before Acts of Nature is released.
