Nancy's Notes - December 8, 2016

Christmas at the library - and Dec. 6 and 20 events., “A Fool’s Gold Christmas” by Susan Mallery, "Missing” by James Patterson and co-authored by Kathryn Fox.

        It looks like Christmas at the library The greens are now hung. Tuesday evening we had a fun as we kicked off the season by reading the “Polar Express” at the downtown story night. Missy and I had a lot of fun building a train for our “passengers” who enjoyed the story with a cup of cocoa. They also had time to write a letter to Santa. Bring your youngsters back on December 20 when Santa himself will be on hand to read a story and listen to their wish list. Bring a camera to get a picture.
        I’ve read several holiday stories already this season. They are usually short and quick reads so great for the busy season. If that sounds good to you, why not check out “A Fool’s Gold Christmas”, by Susan Mallery. The cheer in Fool's Gold, California, is too much for dancer Evie Stryker. An injury has forced her to return home to her estranged family. When she's recruited to stage the winter festival, she vows to do as promised, then move on, anywhere but here. Jaded lawyer Dante Jefferson is getting used to the town he now calls home, but the pounding of little dancers' feet above his office is more than he can take. When he confronts their teacher, he's unprepared for their attraction. Evie is his best friend's sister, off-limits unless he's willing to risk his heart.
        The newest James Patterson book, “Missing” is co-authored by Kathryn Fox. It is the latest in his Private series. Craig Gisto has promised Eliza Moss that his elite team at Private Sydney will investigate the disappearance of her father, a high profile CEO of a research company. He figures Eric Moss shouldn't be difficult to find. Except it's not just the man who's gone missing. Using the most advanced technology at their disposal, they find every trace of him has vanished too. They aren't the only ones on the hunt. Powerful figures want Moss to stay "lost," while others just as ruthlessly want him found.

        Stop in and see us: Monday through Wednesday between noon and 8:00 p.m., Thursday and Friday between 10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., or Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
