Santa Claws by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown is another light and very entertaining mystery that takes place in Crozet, Virginia featuring "Harry" Haristeen and her animal friends-cats Mrs. Murphy, Pewter , and the corgi dog Tucker.

Bones by Jonathan Kellerman is a novel of suspense featuring psychologist Alex Delaware. Set in Los Angeles, the plot centers around Bird Marsh Preserve, where several bodies of mainly prostitutes are found.

If you like long books (500 pager) and Patricia Cornwell, you should enjoy Scarpetta featuring forensic pathologist, Kay Scarpetta in a murder mystery. Some other new fiction books are Poe's Children, a collection of horror stories by Peter Straub and others, and Michelle by Liza Mundy.
