Friday Finds (05.15.09)

FridayFindsFriday Finds is hosted by MizB at Should Be Reading.

Ah, the joys of being able to schedule a blog post. As you read this, I'm at Callaway Gardens, probably not even thinking about writing a blog post right now. But I still wanted to share with you a couple of books I decided to add to my wish list this week...

Face of Betrayal coverFace of Betrayal by Lis Wiehl. My mom has actually been after me to read this one, as well, and after reading a few reviews I decided to add it to my list. Synopsis from

While home on Christmas break, a seventeen-year-old Senate page takes her dog out for a walk and never returns. Reporter Cassidy Shaw is the first to break the story. The resulting media firestorm quickly ensnares Federal Prosecutor Allison Pierce and FBI Special Agent Nicole Hedges. The three unique women are life-long friends who call themselves The Triple Threat—a nickname derived from their favorite dessert and their uncanny ability to crack cases via their three positions of power.

Though authorities think Katie might have been kidnapped or run away, those theories shatter when Nicole uncovers Katie's blog. They reveal a girl troubled by a mysterious relationship with an older man. Possibly a U.S. Senator.

As the three women race against time to find Katie alive, their increasing emotional involvement brings out their own inner demons and external enemies. There are many faces of betrayal, but they must find the one face in a crowd of growing suspects before they become the next victims.

In Face of Betrayal, Lis Wiehl's expertise in law, politics, and criminal investigation merges with April Henry's narrative genius to create a gripping mystery filled with rich characters, real danger, and a shocking yet satisfying final twist.

Fairy Tale coverFairy Tale by Cyn Balog. This should also be a "Waiting On" Wednesday item, as it isn't due out until June 23rd. Synopsis from

Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.


  1. Fairy Tale looks interesting. Different but interesting.

  2. Fairy Tale sounds very interesting... I am very interested to hear what you think of it.

  3. Fairy Tale looks great! I can't wait to read your review on it!

  4. Fairy Tale looks like my kind of book. Sounds very similar to Tithe, where Kaye was switched at birth.

  5. Fairy Tale looks good! Thanks for the heads-up on that one!
