So many books-so little time!

by Linda, Central Reference Librarian

It's almost spring and lots of my favorite authors have new books coming out soon-Jacqueline Winspear, Nancy Atherton and Joanne Fluke this month! Winspear writes about the psychologist and detective Maisie Dobbs in post World War I Britain-I think it's her insights into human nature that attract me the most, Maisie sees behind all the pain that the war caused and right into the person's soul. Nancy Atherton's mostly happy (sometimes nobody dies!) cozy mysteries featuring Lori Shepherd and the ghostly Aunt Dimity are charming-set also in Britain (the Cotwolds). Lori is a usually level headed mom of twins-but she does talk to dead Aunt Dimity thru a blue notebook. Joanne Fluke's mystery solving baker-Hannah Swensen lives in Lake Eden, Minnesota and has a cast a likable characters-mostly Hannah's hilarious family! Fluke always includes lots of great recipes-I've made several of her cookie concoctions and my family and friends love them.If you want to keep up with your favorite author, checkout the Coming Soon link on the library's web page-you can find it under Find Library Books and more.
