Need to know/ Karen Cleveland

June 1st, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Vivian Miller. High-powered CIA analyst, happily married to a man she adores, mother of four beautiful children. Until the moment she makes a shocking discovery that makes her question everything she believes.  She thought she knew her husband inside and out. But now she wonders if it was all a lie.

The good daughter/ Karin Slaughter

June 1st, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Andrea knows everything about her mother, Laura. She knows she’s spent her whole life in the small beachside town of Belle Isle; she knows she’s never wanted anything more than to live a quiet life as a pillar of the community; she knows she’s never kept a secret in her life. Because we all know our mothers, don’t we?  But all that changes when a trip to the mall explodes into violence and Andrea suddenly sees a completely different side to Laura.  c. 2017

The nearness of you/ Dorothy Garlock

June 1st, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

New York City. The hustle and bustle. The people and the excitement. It’s all Lily Denton dreams about. But ever since her mother died, her overprotective father won’t ease up on her. So she spends her days working at the library and her nights hoping life doesn’t pass her by…until the Fall Festival. As tourists fill the streets, the crisp autumn air sneaks in – as does the thrill of a far more dangerous kind.   c. 2017

Bringing Maggie home/ Kim Vogel Sawyer

June 1st, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

When cold case agent Meghan DeFord is forced to take a six-week leave of absence after a traffic accident, she chooses to spend the time with her grandmother, whose 80th birthday is approaching. Meghan has wonderful memories of childhood summers with her Grandma Hazel and anticipates a time of relaxation and filling a scrapbook with pictures of their time together.  Meghan’s mother, Diane, arrives unexpectedly and brings her long resentment towards Hazel for her overprotectiveness and near paranoia.  c. 2017

The best cook in the world/ Rick Bragg

June 1st, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

Margaret Bragg does not own a single cookbook. She measures in “dabs” and “smidgens” and “tads” and “you know, hon, just some.” She cannot be pinned down on how long to bake corn bread (“about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the mysteries of your oven”). Her notion of farm-to-table is a flatbed truck. But she can tell you the secrets to perfect mashed potatoes, corn pudding, redeye gravy, pinto beans and hambone, stewed cabbage, short ribs, chicken and dressing, biscuits and butter rolls. Many of her recipes, recorded here for the first time, pre-date the Civil War, handed down skillet by skillet, from one generation of Braggs to the next. c. 2018

The Darling Dahlias and the unlucky clover/ Susan Albert Wittig (Darling Dahlias; #7)

May 21st, 2018 by Susan Rowe, Library Director

It looks like the music has ended for Darling’s favorite barbershop quartet, the Lucky Four Clovers, just days before the Dixie Regional Barbershop Competition. Another unlucky break comes when there’s a serious foul-up in Darling’s telephone system – and not a penny for repairs. And while liquor is legal again, moonshine isn’t. Sheriff Buddy Norris needs a little luck when he goes into Briar Swamp to confront Cypress County’s most notorious bootlegger – and what he finds upends his sense of justice.   c. 2018

They fall in love, despite Hamilton’s bastard birth and the uncertainties of war.   c. 2018
