New Books

We are pleased to announce the following additions to our collection:

Adult fiction, large print:  James Lee Burke, New Iberia Blues (A Dave Robicheaux Novel); Lisa Jewell, Watching You; Amanda Quick, The Other Lady Vanishes; and Stuart Woods, A Delicate Touch (A Stone Barrington Novel).  These are terrific choices for our readers who like mysteries and thrillers.  New Iberia Blues:  The shocking death of a young woman leads Detective Robicheaux into the dark corners of Hollywood, the mafia, and the backwoods of Louisiana in this gripping mystery.  Watching You:  Melville Heights is one of the nicest neighborhoods in Bristol, England—not the sort of place where people are brutally murdered in their own kitchens.  The Other Lady Vanishes:  After escaping from a private sanitarium, Adelaide Blake is desperate to start over in 1930s California, in a seaside resort town frequented by Hollywood movers and shakers, where the most dazzling of illusions can’t hide the darkest secrets.  A Delicate Touch:  Stone Barrington uncovers a societal minefield in this exhilarating new adventure, a decades-old scandal involving numerous prominent New Yorkers who would prefer that the past stay buried.

Adult fiction, regular print:  Susan Anne Mason, Love’s Faithful Promise:  This novel completes the Courage to Dream trilogy; our library has the complete set.  When her mother suffers a stroke, medical student Deirdre O’Leary makes the difficult choice to put her career on hold to care for her.  She approaches Dr. Matthew Claiborne who is renowned for his amazing results with patients, but he is surly and uninterested in helping.  He is a widower devoted to his daughter, Phoebe.  When a health scare with Phoebe causes him to turn to Deirdre for help, a bargain is struck that includes his caring for Deirdre’s mother.
