Remember in this hot weather, the library is nice and cool. Stop and use a computer, browse through a magazine, or check out a book or movie. If you are heading out of town on vacation you can check out audio books for your trip.
Susan Wiggs will entertain readers with, “The Goodbye Quilt”. Linda Davis’s local fabric shop is a place where women gather to share their creations: quilts commemorating important events in their lives. Now, as her only child readies for college, Linda is torn between excitement for Molly and heartache for herself. Mother and daughter decide to share one last adventure together, a cross-country road trip to move Molly into her dorm. During their travels Linda stitches scraps that make up Molly’s young life, pieces from her christening gown and snippets from Halloween costumes. Linda discovers that the memories of a shared journey can come together in a way that will keep them both close in the years to come.
Jayne Ann Krentz’s, “In Too Deep” begins when Fallon Jones takes over the family business and moves the headquarters to Scargill Cove. The confirmed recluse and investigator of the paranormal finds comfort in the northern California coastal town. Isabella Valdez is used to changing her name, job, and social security numbers. Now she has been framed by some dangerous men. They may be behind the disappearance of her grandmother. Now she would be dead if her intuition hadn’t told her to run. So she’s fled to California and found employment with Fallon Jones.
In Michael Connelly’s “The Fifth Witness”, Mickey Haller has fallen on tough times. Criminal defense in Los Angeles has virtually dried up so he has had to expand his business into foreclosure defense. Just when Mickey thinks criminal court is in his past, one of his new clients is accused of killing the banker she blames for trying to take away her home. He puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, despite what seems to be a mountain of evidence against her, and his own suspicions that his client is guilty.
