Giddings Library News Corner

by Loree Rost

Topping the list of mystery books this week at the library is A Wrongful Death by Kate Wilhelm (also in cassette). Who knew that being a Good Samaritan would lead Barbara Holloway to face her biggest challenge ever: being named prime suspect in a high-profile kidnapping? But the more she learns, the more questions she has, and troubling obstacles continue to thwart her every move—from the justice system that employs her, to the false identities of those around her. Yet none of these things compares to the shocking murder scene that awaits her; With unrelenting pacing, stunning reversals, and two of the most compelling characters in modern fiction Stone Cold, (also in CD), is David Baldacci writing at his breathtaking best; In Blood Dreams by Kay Hooper (also in CD), a killer without boundaries, without conscience, without fear of being caught and his latest victim, the daughter of a powerful U. S. senator, is terrified that no one is safe; and in the large print section, mystery book An Ice Cold Grave by Charlaine Harris (also in CD), tells of a missing boy in North Carolina, Harper Connelly and her stepbrother, Tolliver, discover that the boy is only one of the several who have disappeared over a five year period. The library has three other new large print books in the general fiction area. In the large print novel Family by Karen Kingsbury, Baxter looks for a way to tell his other children the truth about a secret he has kept from them all their lives; Home To Holly Springs by Jan Karon is the first of the Father Tim novels. Jan Karon takes her celebrated Mitford character to territory he has long avoided, the uncharted territory of family, giving us a spellbinding and poignant narrative laced with the wisdom and forgiveness; and The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold is an unforgettable story of passion and redemption written with the strength of voice that only Alice Sebold can bring to the page. Stop by the library and pick up one of these good reads.

The library hours are 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays. They are closed on Sunday.
