With the cold and snow this winter, we watched patrons walk out with armfuls of books! Here are few titles we heard rave reviews about:
First to Kill by Andrew Peterson. Hopefully, just the first in what promises to be an exciting new series featuring a former Marine sniper and covert CIA operative.
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Alexander Brown (970.00497 BRO). “Everyone should know more about this part of American history”
The Other Woman by Hank Ryan. A suspenseful mix of mystery and political intrigue.
Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero by Chris Matthews (B Kennedy). Although there are many books about Kennedy, this one is particularly insightful and stirring.
Two patrons told me I had to try Charles Finch’s great historical mysteries featuring a “gentleman sleuth” in Victorian England. Be warned, however: They both said they “stayed up all night reading.” Start with A Beautiful Blue Death.
The Tiger’s Wife by Téa Obreht. Debut novel with “amazing writing, especially for such a young author.”
One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. “So good I want to check it out a second time to refresh my memory.”
In Malice, Quite Close by Brandi Lynn Ryder. Try this if you enjoy literary suspense. “Such wonderful writing; I’m sorry it’s her first book, I want to read more by her.”
Coral Glynn by Peter Cameron. Don’t let either the cover image or the romance genre label determine whether you try this hard-to-describe but very enjoyable book.
