Between the Covers – February 20

THERE WILL BE NO PROGRAMMING THE WEEK OF FEBRUARY 25TH.  WE APOLOGIZE FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.

NEW BOOKSOur New Books on the 7-Day Shelf this week are; “In Bloom” by C.J. Skuse, “Turning Point” by Danielle Steel, “The Gown” by Jennifer Robson, “Liar Liar” by James Patterson.  Come on in and check out all of the great reads on the 7-Day Shelf!

STAFF PICKS FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY ARE; “The Late Show” by Michael Connelly, “The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules” by Catharina Ingelman-Sunderg, “The Impossible Dead” by Ian Rankin and this week’s feature is “Day Into Night” by Dave Hugelschaffer.  (from book jacket) When forest fire forensics expert Porter Cassel is called in to help catch a serial arsonist who goes by the name “Lorax”, he must juggle his official investigation with a personal one: the Lorax’s modus operandi resembles that of a long-dormant ecoterrorist who planted the bomb that killed Cassel’s fianceé. His personal investigation creates friction with the Mounties, who have jurisdiction over the latest series of murders.

As the search continues, Cassel finds he has more to worry about than just a turf battle, when he is framed for the murder of one of the suspects in the case. How will he prove his innocence, as well as discover the identity of the arsonist?

Check out a Staff Pick and let us know what you think!
