New in Paperback: Arcadia Falls by Carol Goodman

A year ago when it was published in hardcover, January Magazine editor Linda L. Richards liked Carol Goodman’s Arcadia Falls quite a lot.

“I’m never sure where to place Carol Goodman’s work,” Richards wrote at that time. “And I’m not the only one. Though she tends to weave elements of suspense into her novels -- books that have included the luminous The Ghost Orchid and the lovely The Seduction of Water -- it’s a mistake to say she writes novels of suspense or that she only writes novels of suspense. Goodman’s voice is mature and strong, her work is masterful, her confidence complete and her work tends to be about much more than we see at first glance.”

Out today in trade paper from Ballantine Books, Arcadia Falls is still, as Richards described, an “atmospheric and magical book.”
