New Releases 7.15.14
Since no plane tickets have been purchased for Shelf Pleasure staffers this summer, we’ll be armchair traveling—from Provence to Paris, Italy to Austria—through this week’s best new releases.
Olivia and Brody’s excitement over their upcoming nuptials in the romantic French province come to a halt when their wedding guests arrive. Arriving first are Olivia’s daughters from her first marriage, brash and impetuous Nell, along with her mysterious date, and Carly, who decides it’s time to shed her serious, always-responsible persona. Adding to the mayhem is womanizer Jake, Brody’s best man, and Franny, Brody’s mother who has her own issues. Will this dysfunctional crew be able to pull it together before they ruin the big day? A warm and witty novel about love, family and starting over.
We love Silva’s taught and suspenseful thrillers and can’t wait to lose a few nights sleep following the latest adventures of art restorer and spy Gabriel Allon. When a British spy is found dead in Lake Como, Allon’s friend, London art dealer Julian Isherwood, is named a suspect. Trying to save Julian, Allon learns that the dead man was trafficking stolen artwork. Now, Allon’s investigation will take him from Paris and London to Marseilles and Austria in search of the real killers—and the most famous missing artwork in the entire world: Caravaggio’s Nativity with St. Francis and St. Lawrence.
