Between the Covers – December 5th

New Books – New books on the Seven Day Shelf this week are: “Racing to the Finish-My Story” by Dale Earnhardt Jr.; “Dark Sacred Night” by Michael Connelly and “Kingdom of the Blind” by Louise Penny!  Come on in and browse through all of the great books on the Seven Day Shelf!


Staff Picks for the Month of December are “The Rules of Magic” by Alice Hoffman; “Terri’s Journey-the Colour of Rain” by Jacqui Morrison; “Room” by Emma Donoghue; “Home From the Vinyl Café” by Stuart McLean and this week’s feature is “Mean Streak” by Sandra Brown (from book jacket):

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.

While police suspect Jeff of “instant divorce,” Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won’t even tell her his name. She’s determined to escape him and willing to take any risks necessary to survive. 

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can’t turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law. Wrong becomes right at the hands of the man who strikes fear, but also sparks passion.

As her husband’s deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wish her dead – and from heartbreak.

Combining the nail-biting suspense and potent storytelling that has made Sandra Brown one of the world’s best-loved authors, MEAN STREAK is a wildly compelling novel about love, deceit, and the choices we must make in order to survive.
