More great new Christmas and holiday titles that we have recently received at the library include:
As single father Logan O’Donnell prepares to give his son Charlie the best Christmas ever in Candlelight Christmas by Susan Wiggs, his family members converge on the shores of Willow Lake to share the magic of the season. Logan himself may even be in for a holiday surprise of his own in the form of independent and sharp-witted Darcy Fitzgerald.
Silent Night, the new Spencer holiday novel, was finished by Helen Brann from drafts the late Robert B. Parker left behind. When Spencer is approached by a homeless boy who has found refuge with a Boston shelter, Spencer and Hawk agree to uncover why the founder of the shelter and boy’s mentor is being threatened by a local drug lord.
Hard times have fallen on Tinker’s Cove in Christmas Carol Murder, the latest installment of the Lucy Stone mysteries by Leslie Meier. Lucy normally loves the holidays but this year the profit hungry partners at Downeast Mortgage are determined to rake in as much money as they can from half the town’s misfortune. When one of them is murdered, can Lucy uncover the culprit before he strikes again?
Starry Night by Debbie Macomber finds a young writer desperate to prove herself as a serious journalist trekking off to the wilds of Alaska in order to track down a notorious recluse. But as she gets closer and closer to understanding Finnegan Dalton and the life he has chosen, she must decide whether to respect his wishes and abandon the story that is sure to make her reputation.
More new children’s picture books include:
The Christmas Quiet Book by Deborah Underwood is filled with beautiful illustrations of special Christmas moments such as searching for hidden presents and listening for sleigh bells. In Dinosaur Christmas by Jerry Pallotta, Santa Claus reminisces about the year dinosaurs were called in to pull his sleigh.
We look forward to seeing everyone soon at the library.
