RA Alert — Darling Jim

In Sunday’s NYT BR, Marilyn Stasio gives a stellar review to a book we love at EarlyWord (Lisa Von Drasek even took off her kids hat to rave about it), Darling Jim by Christian Moerk (Uses of Enchantment, NYT BR, 5/3). It gets an equally strong review in South Florida’s Sun-Sentinel (Oline Cogdill, Darling Jim) and a review in the 4/20 issue of People called it “a chilling bedtime story for adults.”

Most libraries are showing low holds, but one has ten to one holds; it’s likely the staff got the word of mouth going.

As the reviews indicate, Darling Jim has appeal for readers of many different genres, since it combines “murder mystery, romantic suspense, psychological thriller, [and] folk legend.”
