Gail Bowen was featured on Reading Recommendations in March 2015 when she released the 15th book in her Joanne Kilbourn mystery series set in Regina, SK. She’s back now, almost a year later, to tell us of the next book in the series just being released today! Yay! Gail! It gives me great pleasure, after 25 years (gasp!), to still be your cheerleader!

What’s Left Behind
by Gail Bowen
Published by McClelland & Stewart

From the “Queen of Canadian crime fiction” (Winnipeg Free Press) comes the 16th installment of the much-loved Joanne Kilbourn series.

The latest novel in the Joanne Kilbourn Shreve series opens in the month of May, a time of beginnings when all things seem possible. Joanne’s husband, Zack, recently elected mayor of Regina, is optimistic that he can garner the public support necessary to make Regina a city that works — not just for the few, but for the many. Their oldest son Peter is marrying Maisie Crawford, a woman as clever and forthright as she is lovely. Their lakeside wedding is a dream come true, but when a former lover of a member of the bridal party shows up, the dream becomes a nightmare. Before the bride’s bouquet has wilted, there’s an act of sickening cruelty; soon afterwards, there’s a murder.

Devastated, Joanne and Zack search for answers. As it becomes increasingly unclear whether political agendas, shattered romance, or a secret buried deep in the past have motivated the crimes, the loyalties of the Shreve family are tested. A gripping mystery with a social conscience, this is a novel of high stakes and innocence lost.
