Nancy's notes - March 24, 2011
We have now held our final session of computer classes. Enough people were interested that we held two different class sessions. It was fun to work with those involved and luckily they didn’t expect professional guidance from us, so no one seemed too disappointed with what they learned. Our ancestry.com class seemed to pique everyone’s interest.
My first book today, “Fatal Error”, is written by J.A. Jance. Ali Reynolds begins the summer thinking her most difficult challenge will be surviving a six-week-long course as the lone forty-something female at the Arizona Police Academy. However, when Brenda Riley, a colleague from Ali’s old news broadcasting days in California, shows up in town with an alcohol problem and an unlikely story about a missing fiancé, Ali reluctantly agrees to help. The man posing as Brenda’s fiancé is revealed to be a cyber-sociopath who has left a trail of broken hearts. When he is viciously murdered, the women he victimized are considered suspects. The police soon focus their investigation on Brenda, who is already known to have broken into Richard’s home and computer before vanishing without a trace.
Ken Follett’s new historical epic, “Fall of Giants”, is the first novel in The Century Trilogy. The story follows the fates of five interrelated families-American, German, Russian, English and Welsh as they move through the dramas of WW I, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women’s suffrage. The characters find their lives entangled as the story moves from Washington to St. Petersburg.
The newest novel written by Harlan Coben is “Darkest Fear”. It begins when Myron Bolitar’s ex tells him he’s a father of a dying thirteen-year-old boy. The surprise visit is unsettling enough, but Emily Downing’s news brings him to his knees. The boy was conceived the night before her wedding to another man. Now their son Jeremy is dying and needs a bone-marrow transplant, but the donor has vanished without a trace. Myron plunges into a search for the missing donor.
Come 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.
