Nancy's Notes - June 7, 2012

“Copper Beach” by Jayne Anne Krentz, “The Last Boyfriend” by Nora Roberts, “Brush of Angel’s Wings” by Ruth Reid.
I’d like to remind those of you with young children about our first summer reading program. Dan Wardell, from Iowa Public Television, will come to town with his Reading Road Trip. Join in his adventures when he brings stories to life on June 18 at 1:00 p.m. in the library meeting room.
    Jayne Anne Krentz has written, “Copper Beach”, the first in her Dark Legacy Trilogy. Within the pages of very rare books, some centuries old, lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell’s unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes, and sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of a collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old text known as The Key has reappeared on the black market. A number of ruthless people are searching for the book. Some believe that Abby can find it for them.
    Nora Roberts fans will be happy to know we have recently purchased, “The Last Boyfriend”, her latest novel. Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist. Though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish. Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a chance to look at its renovation and a newfound appreciation for Owen. Since he was her first boyfriend when they were kids, Owen has never been far from Avery’s thoughts. But the attraction she’s feeling for him  now is far from innocent.
    Ruth Reid’s, “Brush of Angel’s Wings”, is the newest inspirational fiction novel in our large print collection. The youngest and last unmarried of four sisters, Rachel Hartzler spends most of her time helping with barn chores. When her father hires Jordan Engles to help on the farm, Rachel’s role changes, and her father seems to be treating Jordan as a part of the family. As Jordan takes on brotherly roles around the house, the hostility between the two continues to grow. Rachel is angry that Jordan has commandeered so much of her territory. Jordan is determined not to get involved with an Amish girl. 
    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.
