A Deep Sadness

Like the rest of the Aldine community, we were shocked and saddened by the death of Stovall Middle School student, Jose Luis Meraz. When someone so young dies, it is such a great tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Meraz family and  the staff and students at Stovall Middle School.

 

The Long Way Home

This is one of my favorite mystery series, partly because of the beautiful Canadian settings, but also because of the personality of Armand Gamache and the other characters.

The Accident

I wanted to read The Accident after reading Pavone’s best seller, The Expats. This story isn’t as compelling as The Expats but it was entertaining. Isabel Reed, a New York literary agent, receives a manuscript from an anonymous author. It is sure to be a best seller, but since it reveals secrets kept by powerful people, she is afraid that it will be dangerous to publish the book. Sure enough, her assistant is murdered and soon Isabel and her associate Jeff are running for their lives.

Every summer, our kids love to see Ronald McDonald coming. He tells corny jokes and does some magic. Most of all, he makes our kids laugh! So come see him, this Wed. at 3 pm in the children's area.

 

Sidetracked

Swedish inspector Kurt Wallander is called out to a farm where a young girl has been seen hiding in the field. He is stunned when she sets herself on fire. While he is dealing with the aftermath of that, a former justice minister is found murdered and scalped. Soon he and his team are searching for a serial killer who has murdered four men, seemingly unconnected with each other.

A Pedigree to Die For

I picked this up as it’s featured on our e-book page as a Big Read. This means that the library has been provided with unlimited copies of this e-book. If you like to download your books, A Pedigree to Die For is a quick, fun read.  It all starts when show dog owner Max Turnbull dies, leaving his wife and seven pedigreed poodles. His wife, Peg, suspects murder and the only clue is that one of the dogs, Beau, is missing.
