BOOK REVIEW

ROSEMARY by Kate Clifford Larson
BIOGRAPHY & MEMOIR
Released: Oct. 6, 2015

"A well-researched, entertaining, and illuminating biography that should take pride of place over another recent Rosemary bio, Elizabeth Koehler-Pentacoff's The Missing Kennedy."
In-depth coverage of one Kennedy daughter who never gained the spotlight like her siblings. Read full book review >

BOOK OF MOONS by Rosemary Edghill
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Nov. 1, 1995

"But if you're reading to find out whodunit, you can knock off 50 pages early."
You'd think occultists would be able to keep track of their gear, but as Changing coven member Bast (known to the uninitiate as graphic artist Karen Hightower) circulates from coven to coven preparatory to the Ecumenpicnic celebrated on May Day, she keeps hearing that witch after witch—her friend Glitter, statuesque Xharina, the sleazy bookstore Snake's all-purpose priestess Lorelli Lee—has each lost her copy of the Book of Shadows.

SPIRITS WHITE AS LIGHTNING by Mercedes Lackey
SCIENCE FICTION & FANTASY
Released: Dec. 1, 2001

"Harmonizing with an Irish jauntiness, Lackey and Edghill jam each page with a spirit-crushing good humor that solves one of Life's Great Mysteries about grinding out sorcery series: know your elfin addicts."
Lackey, well known for using various collaborators for her Heralds of Valdemar and Bardic Voices series (Brightly Burning, 2000), joins forces with Edghill once again (Beyond World's End), this time for the fifth installment of Lackey's Bedlam's Bard series. Read full book review >

ROSEMARY REMEMBERED by Susan Wittig Albert
MYSTERY THRILLER
Released: Nov. 1, 1995

"The ingredients in Bayles's fourth case (Hangman's Root, 1994, etc.) are familiar enough, but they're combined with an herbalist's taste—and with enough humor and deftness to make this Albert's strongest book yet."
It isn't bad enough that lawyer-turned-herbalist China Bayles discovers the body of her accountant Rosemary Robbins; she also has to deal with her live-in Mike McQuaid's suspicion that Rosemary was shot by recently freed wife-killer Jake Jacoby—who just might have tried to get at McQuaid, the ex-cop who arrested him, by killing the woman he thought was Bayles.
