Susanna - Censored by GoodReads (susannag) | 463 comments Dreaming Spies by Laurie R. King is out the middle of February (the 17th, I think).

It's one of her Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes series (GR's database says 13th), and set in 1924/1925. It's set on a steamship to Japan, in Japan, and also in Oxford. (I had an ARC and really enjoyed it.)

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 691 comments Who Buries the Dead (Sebastian St. Cyr #10) by C.S. Harris comes out March 3rd. I will be attending an author signing in Houston on the 5th so I am very excited!

The Lady Darby series is coming up fast in my, admittedly flexible, reading plans. And I'm excited to see what Deanna Raybourn does with a new series. And her new heroine shares my name! :)

I just discovered Lady Darby at the end of December and have caught up on it already. I'm not sure how I missed it before; it's fast become a favorite as well!

Veronica  (readingonthefly) | 691 comments What a coincidence, I just started The Other Side of Midnight The Other Side of Midnight by Simone St. James over the weekend. I didn't have a lot of time for reading so I'm still only a few chapters in but I'm liking it so far. That said, it's set in 1925 and I don't really have a strong sense of the time period yet.

Gretchen (eab2012) | 249 comments Fiona Buckley has a new Ursula Blanchard novel coming in October. It's titled A Perilous Alliance but I can't find a title on Goodreads for it yet. I am hesitant to read another Blanchard novel as I'm of the belief this series needed to end about six books ago. My curiosity will more than likely get the better of me and I'll read it anyway.
