July 2017

Thanks to all of you that stopped in during our open house/book sale. Many books found new homes. Everyone’s name was entered into a drawing and Donna Bremer was the winner of a $25.00 Town & Country gift card. Congratulations!

A memorial was received in Ray Christian’s name from the Citizens State Bank and memorials for Joe Dekker and Rose Ostenson came from Underwoods. Thank you for thinking of the library for your memorials.

With the Finley Improvement donation, we bought several hard cover, large print books. They are:
Where the Lost Girls Go by R J Noonan – A rookie cop gets her first case, a teenager burns in a car. Who is she? The lost girls are runaway teens who go to Portland OR and subsequently disappear. Are these tragedies tied together?

The Broken Road by Richard Paul Evans – If you read The Walk series, you’ll enjoy this new series by this author. This first book asks “What if you could start over?”

Little White Lies, a Robert Parker novel written by Ace Atkins – Connie thought she met the man of her dreams on line but he conned her out of $300,000. Enter Spenser to make sure this con is his last. Witty, Taut & suspenseful.

The Night the Lights Went Out by Karen White – A young, single mother trying to escape her scandalous marriage finds that, to her friends, appearance is everything but some friends are quick to deceive.
Shallow Grave by Brad Theim – One reviewed writes “If you like mystery, suspense, drama, a tough approach with a tender underside, then try this book & you’ll find you want to read more by him”.

More books, mostly hard cover, regular print are:

The Hanged Man’s Song by John Sandford (#4 in the Kidd and LuEllen series) – Sandford’s “Prey” fans also enjoy his other hero, Kidd and his partner LuEllen. Kidd’s friend, a super hacker, has disappeared from cyberspace. Kidd finds him dead and his laptop missing. Secrets abound!
The Lake House by Kate Morton – A baby is taken. Clues are dropped. You think you have it figured out and you don’t!

Indestructible by John R Bruning (non-fiction) WWII renegade pilot Pappy Gunn tries everything possible to get back to the Philippines to rescue his family who were interned there by the Japanese.

Keep Quiet by Lisa Scottoline – Her best ever if you’re a fan. How far would you go to protect your family?
No middle Name by Lee Child – a fun read of the complete Jack Reacher series in short stories plus 1 new novella.

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts – A novel including suspense and family ties. It’s set it western Montana and it grabs you right away I couldn’t stop reading and couldn’t predict the ending.

Nighthawk by Clive Cussler – The most advanced aircraft ever designed vanishes over the South Pacific. Fast paced with unusual twists and turns.

Tuesday’s Child by Fern Michaels – A legal melodrama/contemporary fiction with surprising plot twists that will keep you turning pages.

Magic by Danielle Steel – Explores what it really means to have magic in our lives.

Bear Town by Fredrik Backman (the author of A Man Called Ove) Bear Town is a hockey town that has a culture of silence to foster a culture of winning. Are the hockey stars above the law?

Takedown Twenty by Janet Evanovich – Stephanie Plum must take down a mob boss before he takes her out.
