Providence Journal praises Thief’s Mark 

Jon Land raves about Thief’s Mark in his thriller roundup in the Providence Journal: 

“Carla Neggers has long excelled at forging neo-gothic, brooding tales rich in setting and atmosphere. With Thief’s Mark (Mira, $26.99, 332 pages), though, she ups the ante in fashioning a crime thriller of rare depth and complexity…an exquisite portrait in classic mystery storytelling.”~Providence Journal

The River House now available for pre-order

Carla’s next Swift River Valley novel, The River House, goes on sale in late March, but you can pre-order your copy today. It’s summer in little Knights Bridge, and Gabe Flanagan is back in town, ready to see Felicity MacGregor again after three years, when she stalked out of his Boston apartment on a cold winter day. They’ve known each other since kindergarten and there’s nothing he won’t say to her and she won’t say to him…except, maybe, what matters most.

A Note from Carla

As 2017 winds down, I’m thankful for so much this year but especially having another holiday season with my mother, who turns 83 in February. She’s something. She can do anything with a needle and thread, and she can head into the woods at our family homestead on the edge of the Quabbin Reservoir and come back with enough for beautiful Christmas centerpieces. She whips them together with a few ribbons and bauble. I need instructions! She can’t go into the woods anymore, but we can. We’ll get a list of what she needs, and we’ll make the centerpieces together. Maybe I’ll learn something.

I’m working on Impostor’s Lure, next up in the Sharpe & Donovan series, and I’m gearing up for The River House, the next Swift River Valley novel, which goes on sale March 27. You’ll notice the cover’s a bit different. I’d love to hear what you think.

My very best to you and yours this holiday season.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Take care,
