The holiday season is fast approaching! Get into the spirit of the season by reading some of the great new fiction that has recently arrived at the library. New titles by your favorite authors include:
The Dogs of Christmas by W. Bruce Cameron is the story of Josh Michaels who is at home alone recovering from a recently broken heart. When a neighbor abandons a very pregnant dog on his doorstep in the middle of a harsh Colorado winter, Josh learns to care for her tiny puppies with the help of a local animal shelter worker whose quick wit and fierce love for animals catches Josh’s attention.
In A Seaside Christmas by Sheryl Woods, Jenny Collins, now a highly successful Nashville songwriter, finds the memories of her lonely childhood as the only child of a single mother coming back to her as she prepares to return to Chesapeake Shores in order to collaborate on a Christmas production.
Duck the Halls by Donna Andrews finds Meg Langslow trying to stop a group of vengeful holiday pranksters from destroying the annual pre-Christmas concert after they rig a cage full of skunks to the church choir loft. But when murder enters the festivities, Meg finds her job getting harder as she tries to save Christmas from being ruined by a vengeful killer.
New picture books that have been donated to the library include Pippin the Christmas Pig by Jean Little, which was given in honor of the birth of Cole David Hare by his parents Mike and Dee. Dejected by tales from the other animals about the gifts their ancestors brought to the baby Jesus, Pippin wanders into the cold, snowy night and is compelled to perform his own act of kindness as he and the other animals discover the true meaning of Christmas giving.
In Priscilla and the Great Santa Search by Nathaniel Hobbie, which was given in honor of Eudora Kemp’s birthday by Bonnie and Chyene Kemp, Priscilla and her best friend set out on cross-country skis to find the North Pole and the real Santa Claus.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon at the library.
