AMAZON BOOK BLURB:
An old letter, discovered in Normandy, sends Jean de Charney, a young Frenchwoman, to present-day Israel, in pursuit of a 200 year old family secret. She teams up with local private-eye Yossi Luria and the two quickly realize that the old mystery is lethal and still claiming victims. Their quest takes them back into the Holy Land's history, through the Napoleonic era and the Crusades, right into the origins of Christianity and of Kabbalah – the Jewish mystical tradition. What is this old secret that people in the 21st century are ready to kill for? It turns out to be startlingly more profound than a family mystery, with direct impact on Jean and Yossi’s personal lives.
Murder embedded in a historical mystery...surprising, thought-provoking, thrilling, controversial

Anging my reading repertoire. I used to prefer historical romances, but I'm leaning towards the Witches, Vampires, and like at the moment. And some normal fictions like the one I mentioned above.
I did just get American Dreamer from Pixel of Ink's free books for my Kindle. It's fiction, but seems pretty normal; murder, mystery, etc.

Great books. The Bean Trees is a fave of mine.
If you like history and Biographies, check out Phillipa Gregory. She wrote "The Other Boleyn Girl" and many MANY other great historical fictions.
Sarah Dunant is a good historical fiction writer. I recommend "The Birth of Venus" and "In the company of the Courtesan".
And Water for Elephants is one of my all time faves. Its about a traveling circus in the 30s. Very good book.
