Remember back in 2018 that I discovered the phenomenon of so many of my upcoming books with a Tuesday release date?
It’s happened again with my February books, but not just with a Tuesday release date—all scheduled to release February 22, 2022. There is something magical about that date!
I have four and didn’t realize the commonality until I was surveying my upcoming review dates for NetGalley. But I’m not going to wait for February. These are all scheduled for my reviews in January (two are mine, two from the CE). Oh. My. Gosh! I’m thinking you have to check these out—they will be special. (Blurbs are excerpts.) Links on pics.

The Berlin Exchange by Joseph Kanon
From “master of the genre” (The Washington Post) Joseph Kanon, an espionage thriller set at the height of the Cold War, when a captured American who has spied for the KGB is swapped by the British and returns to East Berlin needing to know who arranged his release and what they want from him.

How many books will you review that also have a release date of 2-22-22?
I think it calls for a collective raise of glasses—a special toast—how often can that happen? Cheers!!
