New items for your back-to-school reading

  • New Fiction
  • Fatal harbor by Brendan DuBois. Find it at F DUB Le.8. This is a great novel by a NH author and all-around decent fellow. We have almost all the series if you want to start from the beginning… and we’ll be pleased to get you the one we are missing too.
  • Purity by Jonathan Franzen. Find it at F FRA. Remember The Corrections? This is the new one by the same author.
  • The nature of the beast by Louise Penny. Find it at F PEN Bk.11. Another popular series for all types of readers and this is the very latest, but we have almost all of them.
  • Girl waits with gun by Amy Stewart. Find it at F STE. I happened to run across the review and this sounds delightful. Hopefully one of you will let me know soon!
  • Starlight on Willow Lake by Susan Wiggs. Find it at F WIG La.11. Also the latest in a series, but they can be read individually too.
