The Summer Reading Program --Make a Splash Read @ Your Library--begins this week. We will be decorating t-shirts, doing fish prints, deocrating wind chimes, and all kinds of fun things. All the activities will be on Thursdays at 10 a.m. Pick up a schedule at the library or check our website http://www.lclib.lib.wa.us/ for a complete list.
We have some new books you may be interested in reading. Check out one of these the next time you are in.
Wrecked by Carol Higgins Clark. During a storm, Skip, a local caretaker, finds Adele lying in a heap outside the house she's renting, her face bloody, her rowboat banging against the rocks in the nearby bay. By the time Skip returns with help, Adele is gone. As Regan and Jack aid the authorities in locating Adele's next of kin, clues surface that suggest Adele has been the victim of foul play. The two co-owners of the boutique Pillow Talk, who knew Adele as one of their best customers, offer Regan and Jack an important lead, while a visiting theatrical troupe lends a bizarre plot twist.
The Burning Wire by Jeffery Deaver. Forensic expert Rhyme takes charge of looking into a fatal blast at a Manhattan electrical power substation that destroys a bus, aided by his partner, field agent Amelia Sachs. Rhyme is able to glean many clues from the scant trace evidence left by the elusive killer at the crime scene. Meanwhile, Rhyme is also staying in close touch with Mexican army and police commander Rodolfo Luna, who's tracking dangerous assassin Richard Logan (aka the Watchmaker) in Mexico City. The twin investigations take an increasingly dangerous toll on quadriplegic Rhyme's precarious physical health.
Heart of the Matter by Emily Giffin. Tessa Russo is celebrating her wedding anniversary with her handsome husband, Nick, a pediatric plastic surgeon, when his pager goes off. At the hospital, he meets his new patient, six-year-old Charlie, who has been badly burned while roasting s’mores. Charlie’s mother, Valerie, a high-powered lawyer who has raised Charlie on her own, is wracked with guilt. As Charlie goes through various grafts and surgeries to repair the damage done to his face and hand, Nick and Valerie become close. Tessa, a stay-at-home mom who has misgivings about leaving her professorship, recognizes the distance growing between her and Nick but isn’t sure what to attribute it to or what to do about it.
