We’ve collected the hardcover books debuting on Indiebound’s Indie Bestseller List for the week ending March 27, 2011–a sneak peek at the books everybody will be talking about next month.
(Debuted at #3) The Saturday Big Tent Wedding Party by Alexander McCall Smith: “As the countdown to Mma Makutsi’s wedding begins, all is not as it should be at the No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. While investigating unpleasant occurrences on a southern cattle-post, Mma Ramotswe, always on the side of the weak against the strong, has reason to reflect on Rule No.3 of The Principles of Private Detection: never lie to the client.” (March 2011)
(Debuted at #4) A Lesson in Secrets by Jacqueline Winspear: “Maisie Dobbs’ first assignment for the British Secret Service takes her undercover to Cambridge as a professor—and leads to the investigation of a web of activities being conducted by the emerging Nazi Party … Posing as a junior lecturer, she is sent to a private college in Cambridge to monitor any activities “not in the interests of His Majesty’s government.”
(Debuted at #6) Live Wire by Harlan Coben: “When former tennis star Suzze T and her rock star husband, Lex, encounter an anonymous Facebook post questioning the paternity of their unborn child, Lex runs off, and Suzze – at eight months pregnant – asks Myron to save her marriage, and perhaps her husband’s life. But when he finds Lex, he also finds someone he wasn’t looking for: his sister-in-law, Kitty, who along with Myron’s brother abandoned the Bolitar family long ago.” (March 2011)
