New At The Library

Kidnapping, murder, extortion, and destruction all with an ominous calling card: The symbol of a Black Hand. Enter “The Italian Sherlock Holmes” Joseph Petrosino. Can this detective and his handpicked squad counter The Black Hand?

"Confessions of a Domestic Failure" by Bunmi Laditan. If there are “good moms” and “bad moms” then there must be “hot mess moms”. Meet Ashley Keller, who has gone from career centered to stay at home mother. She tries to keep up with the seemingly fabulous moms on the internet, but it isn’t that easy. But when a chance to attend an event by her online idol comes up, will she sink or swim?

"The Stars Are Fire" by Anita Shreve. Its October 1947 and fires rage in Maine. While their husbands fight the out of control fires, two friends band together to protect their families. Homes destroyed, no money, and awaiting word of their husbands these women will face even more challenges.
