Nancy's Notes - October 6, 2011

Freegal music service, “Crunch Time” by Diane Mott Davidson, “The Ninth Wife” by Amy Stolls.


    We have a new and exciting service at the library. It is called Freegal music. The program allows our patrons to download three free music selections per patron, per week. Not all artists are listed at this site, and not are all the latest hits, but there are thousands of musical selections from which to choose. To receive this service you must hold a card from our library and register for the service at our library. You will be given a username and password. The patron can then go online and download to their computer, a CD, or a MP3 player.
    Diane Mott Davidson, author of the Goldy Schulz Culinary series, has written her next installment, “Crunch Time”. The Colorado caterer becomes involved in big trouble when she tries to help longtime friend Yolanda Garcia. When the rental house shared by Yolanda and her aunt Ferdinanda is destroyed by arson, the pair moves in with cop-turned-PI Ernest Mcleod. But then Ernest is shot dead and his house is set on fire, nearly killing Goldy, Yolanda, Ferdinanda, and nine beagle puppies. Concerned for her friends, Goldy invites them to stay with her while the sheriff’s department investigates. Then a second body is found. Swapping her chef’s hat for a sleuthing cap, Goldy steps up the investigation. It’s crunch time to close in on a killer, before he can close in on her. 
    In Amy Stolls’ “The Ninth Wife”, Bess Gray is a thirty-five-year old amateur martial artist living in Washington, D.C. She’s about to give up all hope of marriage until she meets Rory, an Irish musician, and they fall in love. But Rory has a secret, which he confesses to Bess when he asks for her hand: He’s been married eight times before. Bess then begins a quest to delve into his past before she can give him her answer. She sets off with her grandparents, her gay neighbor, a shar-pei dog, and a mannequin on a cross-country journey to question his past wives.
