How long has it been since you checked out our Finley Library Facebook page?  If you haven't you are REALLY missing something!  There are lots of fun things going on there these days plus info on what is going on at the library.  Wondering what new books are going on the shelves?  Finleypubliclibrary on Facebook is the the place to find out all the latest info!  And you do not have to have be on Facebook to look at the library's page.  I am not on Facebook and I check it out all the time!

Also remember that Finley Library has a website as well where you can check to see if we have a particular book, a particular author, or read back issues of these Steele County Press articles!  Check it out!

Finley Library has received two of the ordered large print books:  The Bitter Season by Tami Hoag and See Me by Nicholas Sparks.  The third book, The Rumor by Elin Hilderbrand will be coming soon.  Also received three new books from Bill Devlin:  The Bone Labyrinth by James Rollins, Commander  in Chief by Tom Clancy and The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto by Mitch Albom.  (These are regular print books.)  Thanks for these books, Bill!

Once again I have been having so much fun that I only have one review, so bear with me, please!  We will be back to wintertime soon!  Here it is:

Devil's Corner by Lisa Scottoline.  (PB) (no series) (2005)  Assistant District attorney Vicki Allegretti is almost killed when going to meet a confidential informant (CI), but her well-loved and respected partner, an ATF agent, is killed.   Because she saw the killers, she is the one that can find them and catch them she thinks, but no one else in the police hierarchy seems to agree.  When the drug-addled woman who stole her purse, money and ID is also killed, Vicki knows she is next on the killer's agenda.  She teams up with the daughter of the dead woman and together they have more fun than they should going after the killers and those involved in the drug ring that has caused this entire debacle!  There is also romance involved in this story and though not a cozy mystery, this one is certainly not so "in your face" as most other crime novels.  I especially enjoyed the banter between Vicki and the daughter of the murdered woman.
