In this newsletter, you will find books releasing the weeks of March 27th and April 3rd that we think will be of interest to Bookreporter.com readers, along with Bonus News, where we call out a contest, feature or review that we want to let you know about so you have it on your radar.

This week, we are calling attention to the hardcovers and paperbacks releasing in April, which you can find in our Coming Soon feature.

We also are spotlighting THE ATOMIC WEIGHT OF LOVE, a Bookreporter.com Bets On selection that is now available in paperback. In her debut novel, Elizabeth J. Church takes us from the World War II years in Chicago to the vast sun-parched canyons of New Mexico in the 1970s as we follow the journey of a driven, spirited young woman, Meridian Wallace, whose scientific ambitions are subverted by the expectations of her era. Click on the image above for more info about the book.

In the “life is not dull” category, one morning this week I got a text from my next-door neighbor that read, “There is a bear running in the woods behind your house.” I jumped out of bed tossing my book aside to throw open the drapes to see if I could catch a glimpse of him, but she later told me that she screamed so loudly he took off in a full sprint. When I texted my son, Cory, that this had happened, he asked if there was a piglet, a tiger and a rabbit with him. Loved the book tie-in!

Editorial Content for Vicious Circle: A Joe Pickett Novel

Reviewer (text)

Joe Hartlaub

Joe Pickett was introduced to the world by author C. J. Box in 2001 with OPEN SEASON. One would never expect that a Wyoming game warden would have enough adventures to sustain interest over the course of many novels --- of which the newly published VICIOUS CIRCLE is the 17th --- but Box has accomplished this, and then some. He has done it by aging his characters in real time and resisting the temptation to keep Joe vulnerable on several fronts. Read More

About the Book

The past comes back to haunt game warden Joe Pickett and his family with devastating effect in the thrilling new novel from the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

The plane circled in the dark. Joe Pickett could just make out down below a figure in the snow and timber, and then three other figures closing in. There was nothing he could do about it. And Joe knew that he might be their next target.
