Happy End-of-Winter! Hopefully we will be done with this cold weather and in some warm Spring weather soon, but until then, I hope you’re keeping warm with some great books.
While we’re all confined to staying warm inside, are you binge-watching the series Pieces of Her on Netflix? This series is from Karin Slaughter’s thriller by the same title. Slaughter has become one of my new favorite writers, and this title does not disappoint. If you want to read it before or while watching the series, we have the print book in the library. It is also available in both downloadable audio and ebook formats on the Libby app, and it is available in audio on Hoopla, with no waiting.
We have some new titles by your favorite authors coming soon. Some of the new thrillers include Quicksilver by Dean Koontz, an exciting story of a danger-filled road trip; a new J.P. Beaumont novel by J.A. Jance, Nothing to Lose; City of the Dead: An Alex Delaware Novel by Jonathan Kellerman; Diablo Mesa by Douglas Preston; Steal by James Patterson, which is the 3rd book in the Instinct series; Gwendy’s Final Task by Stephen King; The Last House on the Street by Diane Chamberlin; and lastly, Abandoned in Death by J.D. Robb. This is book number 54 of 55 Eve Dallas novels.
In the historical fiction/romance category, readers will enjoy the second book in Janet Dailey’s Calder Brand series, Calder Grit: A Sweeping Historical Ranching Dynasty Novel. It’s very sweeping – it covers the period of American Westward expansion with farmers and cattlemen. It has also been described as “Romeo and Juliet meets Legends of the Fall,” so it should be dramatic and riveting! Other historical fiction titles include Her Hidden Genius by Marie Benedict, an historical novel about Rosalind Franklin, who began the path of DNA studies as a modern-day science; and The Lady’s Mine by Francine Rivers, a romance set during the Gold Rush Days in California.
These books will be in the library very soon, so place your requests now so you can be the first to read some of them!
