I didn't know where else to post this so I thought I would try it here.

I've had The Rose Garden at Castle Callaghan on my WL for a looonnnng time. I was trying to clean up my WL and decided I might as well just buy it. I cannot find it anywhere, not Amazon, not Amazon UK, not Abe's Books...it just isn't available.

Does anyone know why this is? It was at 2006 copywrite so it should be out there somewhere. Was it a very small printing or what?

Thanks for any info :)

Thanks for the suggestions. I hadn't tried ebay or fetch books but I just did and no luck there either :(

Okay, I tried both alibris.com and bookfinder.com but nothing in either place. Thanks for the suggestions though.

I had this problem with Crucifix Lane by Kate Mosse. I tried to find it for months. Then a wish list swap buddy was able to find me a UK copy that I had somehow missed, I have no idea how.

Had a similar problem finding a Lawana Blackwell book and finally contacted the author directly via her web site only to find out that the book had never been published...

I would try just typing in the title and author in Google and see what comes up. Also have you tried just clicking on the Buy It New button here at PBS to see if that finds a copy? I know some people simply haven't noticed that the feature is there...

OK I just googled it and found the web site for Sharon Owens. The book is not listed in her titles list. I would guess that either it was never published or else the title was changed. She doesn't have a book listed for 2006 at all. Sometimes a publisher will assign an ISBN to a title and later change the title or the author will decide not to write the book at all, but the ISBN remains assigned to that title. It's kind of a pain. But if you want to find out for sure, you can go to her web site and contact her from there...
