March 8th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Maggie Toussaint-Doggone it ( Dreamwalker;#3)

March 8th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Dreamwalker Baxley Powell can’t remember the last time she had such a crappy weekend. A twilight encounter with a ghost dog left her numb and disoriented, her dreamwalker abilities are wiped out, and the sheriff just summoned her to a double homicide. With no access to the spirit world, Baxley bluffs her way through the crime scene where a movie star’s assistant and a charter boat captain were strung up and bled dry. In a haunted house, no less.   c. 2016

Sophia Kinsella-My not so perfect life

March 8th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Everywhere Katie Brenner looks, someone else is living the life she longs for, particularly her boss, Demeter Farlowe. Demeter is brilliant and creative, lives with her perfect family in a posh townhouse, and wears the coolest clothes. Katie’s life, meanwhile, is a daily struggle – from her dismal rental to her oddball flatmates to the tense office politics she’s trying to negotiate. No wonder Katie takes refuge in not-quite-true Instagram posts, especially as she’s desperate to make her dad proud.  c. 2017

John Grisham-The whistler

March 8th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Lacy Stoltz never expected to be in the firing line. Investigating judicial misconduct by Florida’s 1,000 judges, her cases so far have been relatively unexciting. That’s until she meets Greg Myers, an indicted lawyer with an assumed name who has an extraordinary tale to tell.   Myers is representing a whistle-blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime. Along with her gangster associates, this judge has facilitated the building of a casino on an Indian reservation. At least two people who opposed the scheme are dead.   c. 2016

Stuart Woods-Sex, lies and serious money (Stone Barrington; #39)

March 8th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

James Patterson-Cross the line (Alex Cross; #24)

March 8th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Shots ring out in the early morning hours in the suburbs of Washington, DC. When the smoke clears, a prominent police official lies dead, leaving the city’s police force scrambling for answers. Under pressure from the mayor, Alex Cross steps into the leadership vacuum to investigate the case. But before Cross can make any headway, a brutal crime wave sweeps across the region.   c. 2016

Fredrik Backman-And every morning the way home gets longer and longer

March 8th, 2017 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Grandpa and Noah are sitting on a bench in a square that keeps getting smaller every day. The square is strange but also familiar, full of the odds and ends that have made up their lives: Grandpa’s work desk, the stuffed dragon that Grandpa once gave to Noah, the sweet-smelling hyacinths that Grandma loved to grow in her garden. As they wait together on the bench, they tell jokes and discuss their shared love of mathematics. Grandpa recalls what it was like to fall in love with his wife, what it was like to lose her. She’s as real to him now as the first day he met her, but he dreads the day when he won’t remember her.   c. 2015
