Staff Pick of the Week is “Say Goodbye” by Lisa Gardner. From the book jacket:

Come into my parlor . . .

For Kimberly Quincy, FBI Special Agent, it all starts with a pregnant hooker. The story Delilah Rose tells Kimberly about her johns is too horrifying to be true—but prostitutes are disappearing, one by one, with no explanation, and no one but Kimberly seems to care.

Said the spider to the fly . . .

As a member of the Evidence Response Team, dead hookers aren’t exactly Kimberly’s specialty. The young agent is five months pregnant—she has other things to worry about than an alleged lunatic who uses spiders to do his dirty work. But Kimberly’s own mother and sister were victims of a serial killer. And now, without any bodies and with precious few clues, it’s all too clear that a serial killer has found the key to the perfect murder . . . or Kimberly is chasing a crime that never happened.

Kimberly’s caught in a web more lethal than any spider’s, and the more she fights for answers, the more tightly she’s trapped. What she doesn’t know is that she’s close—too close—to a psychopath who makes women’ s nightmares come alive, and if he has his twisted way, it won’t be long before it’ s time for Kimberly to . . .

New Movies on the shelf are “Downton Abbey A New Era” starring Maggie Smith and Dominic West, “Stephen King’s The Langoliers” starring Stephen King and Tom Holland,  the complete first season of “The Last Of Us” starring Bella Ramsey and Pedro Pascal, and for the kids, we have “Paw Patrol the Mighty Movie” starring McKenna Grace and Kim Kardashian. Come on in and check it out!

Here’s a little Pocket Hug. Keep it close, all warm and snug. So even when I can’t be there, hold this tight and know I care.

The Wawa Public Library’s staff and friends have been busy making these adorable Pocket Hugs. Pocket Hugs would make a lovely addition to an Easter Basket. The cost of a Pocket Hug is $2.00, and they are available at the Circulation Desk at the Wawa Public Library. Thank you for the yarn donations and for your support!
