Dot Scribbles Suggests

I am really looking forward to these two books being published! Very different but they will both be added to the pile! What do you think, have you heard anything about them?

Curse of the Spellmans by Lisa Lutz, published by Simon & Schuster on August 6th, 2009.

When private investigator Izzy Spellman is arrested for the fourth time in three months, she writes it off as an occupational hazard. She's been keeping surveillance on her new next-door neighbour (suspects name: John Brown), convinced he's up to no good- even if Spellman Investigations Management (Izzy's parents) disagree. When the displeased management refuse to bail her out, it's Morty, Izzy's octogenarian lawyer, who comes to her rescue. But before he can build a defence, he has to know the facts. Over weak coffee and pastrami sandwiches, Izzy unveils the whole truth and nothing but the truth- as only she, a licensed 30-year-old professional, can.

Friends Like Us by Caitlin Davies, published by Simon & Schuster on September 3rd, 2009

1989. At the end of an idyllic summer holiday, four teenage girls swear to be 'blood sisters', sticking with one and other through thick and thin, sharing their secrets, come what may.
2005. The four friends' lives have followed very different paths. Single mother-of-two Loreen is struggling to make ends meet, endlessly searching for love via the Internet. Just back from California, Karen can finally introduce her friends to her long-term lover. Bel has embarked on a controversial new career as a paparazzi, anxious to make her way in a tough man's world. And Ashley has not been in touch. Just why is she keeping so quiet about her new boyfriend?
Despite their pledge, all four women have been keeping secrets from one another. Secrets that finally burst into the open- with surprising and shocking results.
