Our lounge area is drawing readers, computer users, and a couple of Minnesota visitors celebrating the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day! LOL, maybe a set-up by myself with relatives but I want you all to know that we’d love to see you at the library!
Five best sellers were purchased for your library in February. First is The Hollows, by Jess Montgomery, which is set in 1926 in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in southeast Ohio. This book has mystery, labor organization, racial integration, prohibition, women’s rights, and incredible historical detail. Genine Babakian has written a wonderful review for the book, published under the Associated Press in the Arizona Republic last Sunday. We briefly had the novel on our shelf but it has since been checked out, so I would suggest readers sign up on our waiting list. I think we have another story as popular as Where The Crawdads Sing!
Another new purchase, When You See Me, by Lisa Gardner, published January 2020, will keep Gardner fans glued. The prologue alone will have you on the edge of your seat. A single mother, working as a maid, tired on returning home after her shift, cooks for her five year old daughter with a hum and tells her, “You do not have to be rich to eat like a king.” Mother’s homemade salsa and special mole sauce are sought by many. Now keep reading and I promise you won’t be able to put this novel down!
Number three on our list is Lost, by James Patterson and James O. Born. Patterson’s reputation speaks for itself, and this is another fast-paced thriller with humanly believable characters!
Golden in Death, by JD Robb, is book 50 in Robb’s “In Death” series. Even after 25 years, Roberts says is still challenged and entertained him to write an ‘Eve Dallas Mystery.’
Hunter Killer, a Pike Logan novel by Brad Taylor, is a book I’m promising myself to read ASAP. Mr. Taylor, a former special forces officer, writes within the thriller, suspense, adventure genres (my favorite). Hunter Killer is now available at the library.
Last month I mentioned Jack Higgins, and I wish I had more to tell you. We have a couple of his novels and we hope to have more. Please read up on his career on Google. He has been a prolific writer, and I’ve enjoyed his writing for years.
We’d like to give huge thank you to all of our volunteers, both registered and just visiting. The library is dependent on contributions and book donations and we thank you in advance.
Happy reading and I hope to see you at the library.
