Nancy's Notes - December 9, 2010

New decorations and plans for Santa visit, “Indulgence in Death” by J.D. Robb, “Ice Cold” by Tess Gerritsen.

It looks like Christmas at the library. Linda and I spent the afternoon hanging up greens and decorating here and there.

We’ll be enjoying an evening with Santa on Monday, December 20. Mark your calendar and bring your children into the library between 6:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Children can wear their p.j.s and enjoy a story, a craft, and a bedtime snack. Santa will probably arrive around 6:30. So have your kids get their list ready.

J.D. Robb is the pseudonym for Nora Roberts. The popular Eve Dallas suspense series is written under the Robb name. The latest in that series is “Indulgence in Death”. When a murder disrupts the Irish vacation Eve is taking with her husband, she realizes that no place is safe. But nothing prepares her for what she discovers upon her return to her New York City cop shop. A driver for a top-of-the-line limousine service is found dead. The car was booked by an executive at a security company whose identity had been stolen. Days later, a high-priced escort is found killed at Coney Island. Again the trail leads to a CEO whose information has been hijacked. Eve begins to fear that she has come across the most dangerous of criminals, a thrill killer with a taste for the finer things in life.

Tess Gerritsen is also popular with our mystery readers. Her newest is entitled, “Ice Cold”. The story takes place in Wyoming where Maura Isles joins a group of friends on a spur-of-the moment ski trip. When their SUV stalls on a mountain road, closed by a recent snow, they’re stranded with no help in sight. As night falls, the group seeks refuge from the blizzard in a remote village where twelve identical houses stand abandoned. Something terrible has happened there, meals sit untouched and cars are still parked in garages. The town’s previous residents seem to have vanished into thin air, but footprints in the snow betray the presence of someone who still lurks in the darkness, someone who is watching Maura and her friends.

Stop in and see us Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m. or Thursday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
