Posted on December 24, 2016 at 2:47 PM by Rosella Tesch

Cold winter days. Snow, snow and more snow. It is time to curl up on the couch in the company of a good book. Rejoice! We have many new titles for you.

 Here are some good fiction titles to check-out this week-end.
The Healing by Jonathan Odell. An interesting story, rich in mood and atmosphere, set in Mississippi. After the death of her only child, a plantation mistress takes a new born slave babe as her own. The new baby will revels herself to have a gift for healing. Jealousy from other slaves will complicate matters. A novel hard to put down.
On Obvious Facts by Craig Johnson. Another mystery from the author of Dry Bones. This is the twelfth installment of the Longmire series. A hit and run accident involving a young biker will drag Walt, Henry and Vic in the dangerous territory of motorcycle gangs rivalry. The novel mentions Sturgis’s rally.
Razor Girl by Carl Hiaasen. Crazy characters are at play in another of Hiaasen hilarious novels. You will be surprised from the very first page. Let’s just say that all starts with a shaving. 
Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.  Picoult writes, mostly, about the complexity of human relationships and the intricacy of ramifications that a single choice may produce. This book follows the usual structure of Picoult productions. 
True Faith and Allegiance by Tom Clancy. A Jack Ryan novel. Navy Commander Scott Hagen is attacked by an armed man in a busy restaurant. Hagen is able to fight off the assault and discovers the man is Russian. More deadly events, involving assaults of American military and intelligence personnel, follow.
 The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead. Cora and Caesar, slaves in a cotton plantation in Georgia decide to escape and find freedom.  Things go very wrong and Cora kills a white boy who tries to capture her. Though they manage to find the under-ground railroad, they are being hunted. In this imaginative tale, the Under-ground Railroad is not a mere metaphor. It is made of a secrete network of railroad tracks and stations underneath the Southern soil. This is a heart rendering but powerful story.
 In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware. After a week Nora, a reclusive person, finds herself in a bed hospital with the feeling that she might have done something awful.

 Other arrivals include:
Nutshel l by Ian McEwan
Curious Minds by Janet Evanovich and Phoef Sutton
