Item Name & Description: an ARC of Alien Diplomacy by Gini Koch (forthcoming April 2012 in paperback).
Fifth book in the series started with Touched by an Alien, which was one of Booklist's Top 10 SF/Fantasy books for 2010. About the prior book, Alien Proliferation, Publishers Weekly said, "This is a hyperspeed-paced addition to a series that shows no signs of slowing down."
Kitty’s brand of diplomacy isn’t quite as smooth as Jeff’s -- parties, lobbyists of all stripes, and politicians from all over present challenges a well-stocked iPod and quirky sense of humor aren’t up to handling. But when a shadowy assassination plot and new anti-alien conspirators are identified, Kitty’s the diplomat for the job -- in between ‘Mommy and Me’, ‘Diplomacy for Beginners’, and ‘The Washington Wife’ classes.
