This is great news! I need the first three on the list.   I'll definitely be hitting the Book Depository in June. The UK books have such pretty covers, that's a plus. ;-)

Since Plaidy's death, who is now writing the books? Has anyone read any of her books penned under the names Phillipa Carr and Victoria Holt?

Eve, they aren't new books per se, just re-releases of her older works.  I do have many of the Carr and Holt books but they are in my tbr mountain and I haven't read any of them yet!
