Waiting on Wednesday (3)

Death by Denim by Linda Gerber
Even though Aphra Connolly knows there are some very dangerous people on their tail when she met her mom, Natalie, in Paris, she envisioned the two of them strolling along the Champs-Elysées, sharing Nutella-smeared crepes and mother-daughter bonding. But the only strolling they’ve been doing is from one cheap hostel to another, and the “moments” they share consist of Natalie instructing Aphra on the finer points of anonymity and survival. When Natalie’s CIA contact in Paris is found floating in the Seine with a deadly message stuffed into his mouth, Aphra realizes that, like Seth Mulo and his family, she will never be able to stop running unless she confronts the situation head-on. Sneaking away from her mom and her CIA protector Ryan, Aphra tracks down a criminal mastermind in Italy, only to discover that Seth had the same idea, and her presence may have just put Seth in mortal danger...

My Thoughts: The final book in the Death by... trilogy is one I've been eagerly waiting for. I absolutely loved the first two books and am excited to see what happens next as well as see how everything ends. Gerber's done a great job with this series, and Puffin's done a fantastic job with the covers! I love the whole stepback/hole-in-the cover thing. This book will be released in May.

For those wondering when the final part of In My Mailbox will be up, I'll try and do it either tomorrow or Friday. I just don't have the time to do it today. This week is shaping up to be a one-parter (though I got a fun surprise in the mail yesterday) so that'll be up on Sunday as usual.
