Library Notes for October 26, 2011

October gave a party

The leaves by hundreds came

The ashes, oaks and maples

And those of every name.  by George Cooper

Then, there is that SCARY day called Halloween! You all know me by now so what kind of books would “Pam’s Pick” for that spooky, scary week but MYSTERIES! My first pick is not really a mystery per say, some would say better than, full of suspense, intrigue, swash-buckling action, some romance and that Hero’s name is “REACHER” the author, Lee Child, the title, “The Affair.” Everything starts somewhere. For Jack Reacher it was Carter Crossing, Mississippi. That’s all I am going to say, because that’s my Big Bang for mystery week.

New Fiction: “Cat in a Vegas Gold Vendetta” by Carole Douglas, this is a Midnight Louie mystery. It’s murder and mayhem on all fronts for Temple and Louie and the ones they love.

“Spider Web” by Earlene Fowler, this is a Benni Harper mystery. Folk art museum curator and sometimes sleuth Benni is organizing a Memory Festival. A sniper threatens to make it a day to remember in the worst way.

“Bones of a Feather” by Carolyn Haines, this is a Sarah Delaney mystery. PI Sarah and her best friend, Tinkie, take on a new client. A four million dollar necklace, a family heirloom, has been stolen. In order to get the insurance the client needs a PI to investigate.

“English Tea Murder” by Leslie Meier, this is a Lucy Stone mystery. Lucy is on her way to jolly old England. But murder seems to follow her when the tour leader dies after a mid-flight asthma attack. Or was it an asthma attack?

“The Dog Who Came in From the Cold” by Alexander McCall Smith, this is a Corduroy Mansions novel. Follow the further adventures of the Pimlico terrier Freddie de la Hay. Freddie infiltrates a Russian Spy ring.

“Theodore Boone: The Abduction” by John Grisham. This is the second book in the new juvenile fiction series.  When his best friend April disappears in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo knows the answers. These books have more adult following then young adults.

New Non-fiction: “Black Dahlia” by James Ellroy, this is the story of the tortured young woman found in a LA vacant lot in 1947. The papers called her the Black Dahlia.

“A Rose for Her Grave” by Ann Rule, this is vol. 1 in her true crime series. It contains six of her true crime cases.

“Abraham Lincoln: His Life and Time an Illustrated History” by Time Magazine. This book was donated to the library by the Trigg County Extension Homemakers. I would like to say a very special Thank you for this wonderful donation to our collection.

New Cookbook: “The Deen Bros.: Get Fired Up” by Jamie and Bobby Deen, this book is just in time for grilling, tailgating, picnicking and more.
