Going slightly off topic here even though Joanne Harris's last book - 'Gentleman and Players' - was a crime novel and naturally (!) I have a copy in the tbr.
From Publishing News:
"TRANSWORLD HAS SIGNED two more novels by Joanne Harris from Serafina Clarke. The first, The Lollipop Shoes, will be published by Doubleday in May 2007 and sees the reappearance of Vianne Rocher from the bestselling Chocolat. Larry Finlay, Transworld MD, commented: "Joanne Harris is one of the most precious jewels in the Transworld crown. Her return to France, specifically Montmartre, will delight her legion of existing fans but, as we have come to expect from this extraordinary novelist, there is an extra dimension to intrigue and satisfy new readers.""
