I know that our tagline says “More Than Just Books,” but c’mon, working in a library one can’t help but like reading and recommending books! Old books, new books, bad books, and good books – they are all fair game.
So, keeping that in mind here is a group of titles submitted by one of our Reference Librarians and fearless book club leader, Cathy R. Stay tuned for Part Three next week. Happy reading!
Lost Lake, by Sarah Addison Allen – a bit magical
Suley, Georgia, is home to Lost Lake Cottages and not much else, which is why it’s the perfect place for newly-widowed Kate and her eccentric eight-year-old daughter Devin to heal. Kate spent one memorable childhood summer at Lost Lake, had her first almost-kiss at Lost Lake, and met a boy named Wes at Lost Lake. It was a place for dreaming. But Kate doesn’t believe in dreams anymore, and her Aunt Eby, Lost Lake’s owner, wants to sell the place and move on. Lost Lake’s magic is gone. As Kate discovers that time has a way of standing still at Lost Lake can she bring the cottages—and her heart—back to life? (From www.goodreads.com)

Alice is forced to become truly beneath anyone’s notice. Invisible, in fact, because she’s accused of murder. (From www.goodreads.com) Continue reading
