“Kate the Future Queen” by Katie Nicholl, “River Road” by Jayne Ann Krentz, “Dragonfly in Amber” by Diana Gabaldon.

If the cold and snow have you hibernating, you might want to come in and check out a good movie or two. We have several hundred movies available for FREE. There is only a charge if they are returned late. New additions include:  “The Butler”, “The Lone Ranger”, “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2”, and “Last Vegas”.
    You would think we were still British colonies when it comes to the royal family. We are all intrigued by the lavish lifestyle and the ancient traditions their position holds. Who has gotten more press time in the past few years than Kate. We have “Kate the Future Queen” on our shelves. It is an inside look into the life of the future Queen of England, Kate Middleton. Since becoming Duchess Catherine of Cambridge in 2011, Middleton has captivated royals fans around the world. The author tells the story of her early life, first romances, and love with Prince William. She will also reveal new details on Middleton’s initiation into royal life and her first pregnancy.
Jayne Ann Krentz will entertain you with her latest, “River Road”. It’s been thirteen years since Lucy Sheridan was in Summer River. The last time she visited her aunt Sara there, as a teenager, she’d been sent home suddenly after being dragged out of a wild party by the guy she had a crush on. Mason Fletcher was only a few years older but somehow a lot more of a grown-up and the overprotective type who thought he had to come to her rescue. Now, returning after her aunt’s fatal car accident, Lucy is learning there was more to the story than she realized at the time. Mason had saved her from a very terrible crime that night and soon afterward, Tristan, the cold-blooded rich kid who’d targeted her, disappeared mysteriously, his body never found.
    Diana Gabaldon is popular with many of our readers, she returns with, “Dragonfly in Amber”.  For twenty years Claire Randall has kept her secrets. But now she is returning with her grown daughter to the hills of Scotland. Here Claire plans to reveal a truth about the mystery of an ancient circle of standing stones, about a love that transcends the boundaries of time, and about James Fraser, a Scottish warrior whose gallantry once drew a young Claire from the security of her century to the dangers of his.
