The Giddings Public Library welcomes the New Year of 2013 with a good selection of our latest books.

Range of Ghosts by Elizabeth Bear features Temur, the grandson and heir of the Great Kahn. He teams up against an enemy cult with former princess Samakar, who after a series of bitter betrayals, has pursued a life of magical study. So Pretty It Hurts by Kate White involves true crime journalist Bailey Weggens, who finds her relaxing getaway turning into a murder mystery when supermodel Devon Barr is found dead. That’s How I Roll by Andrew Vachss, the master of hardboiled fiction, returns with a deeply revealing new novel about an assassin whose love forced him to kill his own conscience. First, Best, And Only by Barbara Delinsky features CEO Marni Lange, who is finally persuaded to be the cover model for her company’s magazine. The photographer turns out to be Brian Webster, her first and best lover, who rekindles the flame of their long-smoldering passion and helps Marni overcome the ghosts of the past that threaten to tear them apart.

Blue Monday by Nicci French is about Psychotherapist Frieda Klein. She is placed at the center of a national investigation involving the abduction of a fiveyear old child and a client who harbors an obsessive longing for a child with the missing boy’s physical appearance. Death of an Artist by Kate Wilhelm (in CD also) takes place in Silver Bay Orgeon, a small coastal resort town. It is home to three generations of women: Marnie, the widowed owner of a gift shop; Van, her granddaughter who is about to graduate from medical school; and Stef, mercurial and difficult, a brilliant artist who refuses to sell her work.

Other books of interest are: The Fiddler by Beverly Lewis; Kingdom Come by J.G. Ballard; Mudwoman by Joyce Carol Oates; Poison Flower by Thomas Perry; Sidney Sheldon’s Angel of the Dark by Tilly Bagshaws; Second To None by Stella Cameron and Born to Darkness by Suzanne Brockman.

Be sure and help yourself to a cup of coffee located in the foyer of the library.
