New Book News!

Some favorite authors have new books out in October!  Here are some of the ones we think you might like:

Back in 1977, there weren’t many female detectives outside of Nancy Drew or  nosy little old ladies in English villages.  That was the year Marcia Muller debuted her detective Sharon McCone, a hard-boiled private eye in San Francisco. In  City of Whispers, a search for her half-brother leads her to two murders and a race against time.  This series just keeps going strong!
If you love English historical fiction, you’re in for a treat!  Philippa Gregory has a new book out, The Lady of the Rivers.  It’s set just before the War of the Roses, and the main character is Jaquetta, who will be the mother of Elizabeth Woodville.  Passion, power, and the fate of a nation—what more could you ask for?
For years, Eve Duncan has tried to discover what happened to her seven year old daughter.  Now at last, Iris Johansen gives fans the answers in a three book arc:the first book is  Eve, followed by Quinn and now at last comes Bonnie. Yes, we do get the answers we've waited for; and no, it is not the end of the series.  
Lethal is the new book by Sandra Brown and it's another thrilling page-turner!  Honor Gillette finds her world turned upside down when an accused mass murderer shows up in her yard, claiming that he was framed and that Honor's late husband's death was no accident.  There are twists and turns aplenty, just as we've come to expect from Ms. Brown!

You can tell the holidays are fast approaching when the publishers start putting out the Christmas books!  Debbie Macomber fans are already on reserve for 1225 Christmas Tree Lane, the latest in her popular series set in Cedar Cove.   Glenn Beck has followed The Christmas Sweater with another holiday tale, Snow Angel.  The publisher describes it as a tale about family, forgiveness and "a future free of the past."  Donna VanLiere's 2011 book is The Christmas Noe, which tells the story of an unlikely friendship between two women as one searches for a family she didn't know she had. Christmas Treasures is the title of the new Cape Light book Thomas Kinkade.  It's due out in November. Last but certainly not least, there's The Christmas Wedding which sounds as if it should be the new Nora Roberts or Danielle Steel.  Surprise!  It's the new book by James Patterson and Richard DiLallo.  As the title suggests, it's a family drams about a widow who announces that she is going to remarry at Christmas-- but she won't tell her children the identity of the groom.

You can reserve these books online, in person at the library or by calling 276-645-8780.
