I haven't read any of those 5 but I do have a Victoria Hamilton book to try :)
I read two books by her this year and loved both of them!!
I've read "Bran New Death" and really liked it!
Two of your new authors have been on my to be read list for a while. I must find time to bump them up.
I love finding new authors, but it sure does add to the TBR list!
