The Summer Books are (almost) Here!

If you are lucky enough to have more reading time during the summer, you may want to reserve a copy of one of these new books today.

Janet Evanovich continues her wildly popular series featuring New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum with "Top Secret Twenty-One." In this caper Plum juggles several dangerous assignments while helping her Grandma Mazur with her bucket list.

You may remember that Robert Galbraith's "The Cuckoo's Calling" received good reviews but little attention until it was revealed that Robert Galbraith was actually J. K. Rowling. The new Galbraith book "The Silkworm" features the same detective now investigating the murder of a novelist.

"Mr. Mercedes" by Stephen King is described as a hard-boiled detective thriller. Retired policeman Bill Hodges has given up on life until he receives a taunting letter from a lunatic who previously drove a car into a crowd people and is now planning large-scale mayhem.

On a lighter note, Elin Hilderbrand's "The Matchmaker" presents the story of Nantucket resident Dabney Kimball Beech. After parting with her own true love, she has spent 27 years helping couples with her unusual ability to predict compatibility. Now that her long-lost love is back on the island, she must attend to her own happiness.
