New audiobooks

Last Tuesday you may have caught the NPR profile of author John Burdett, who takes readers into the seamy (and steamy) streets of Bangkok with his Detective Sonchai Jitpleecheep series. His newest title in the series - Bangkok Haunts - is here on CD. Sonchai must investigate the death of a woman he once loved.
Another book you have probably heard a lot about lately is A Thousand Splendid Suns, by Khaled Hosseini. It has been on the New York Times bestseller list for 13 weeks now, and is currently occupying the top spot. It's a poignant story about the friendship between two women in Kabul.
If you're a quilter, we have two different quilting-themed stories for you. One is by Jennifer Chiaverini. A Quilter's Homecoming is the tenth installment in her popular Elm Creek Quilts series, and this time she creates a cozy story set in 1924 and enchants readers with a love story between Elizabeth Bergstrom and Henry Nelson. For a slightly different tone, try Tumbling Blocks by Earlene Fowler. The protagonist of Fowler's mystery series in Benni Harper, an ex-cowgirl and quilter. She has moved to a small town in California following the death of her husband, and is the curator of the local quilting museum. Her boss asks her to investigate the death of a local socialite (we call these kind of job requirements "other duties as assigned").
We have 6 more hot new titles on audio as well - a little something for everyone!
