[ARCHIVED] New Book Spotlight for December

If you love a good mystery try Dust by Patricia Cornwell (M/Cornwell), Christmas based Spirit of Steamboat by Craig Johnson (M/Johnson), Anne Perry’s annual holiday offering of A Christmas hope (M/Perry), Accused by Lisa Scottoline (M/Scottoline), Janet Evanovich’s Takedown twenty (M/Evanovich), or White fire by Douglas Preston (M/Preston).

A Santa’s bag full of new fiction includes: Jeeves and the wedding bells (an homage to P.G. Wodehouse) by Sebastian Faulks (F/Faulks), The best of Wodehouse anthology by P.G. Wodehouse (F/Wodehouse), Nancy Thayer’s A Nantucket Christmas (F/Thayer), the All-Girl Filling Station’s last reunion by Fannie Flagg (F/Flagg), Wally Lamb’s We are water (F/Lamb), Dark witch, the first of a new trilogy by Nora Roberts (F/Roberts), Tatiana by Martin Cruz Smith (F/Smith), King and Maxwell by David Baldacci (F/Baldacci), and Robert Stone’s Death of the black-haired girl (F/Stone).

Stumped by what to prepare for holidays? Check out The complete America’s Test Kitchen TV show cookbook (641.5/C). A word of caution: this volume weighs 8 pounds. Ree Drummond’s latest cookbook is aptly named The Pioneer Woman cooks a year of holidays (641.568/D). For light fare try The afternoon tea collection (641.53/A).

For those fascinated by history, we’ve got you covered. Check out Tim Cope’s On the trail of Genghis Khan (915.04/C), Vanished: the 60 year search for the missing men of World War II by Wil S. Hylton (940.54/H), Eastern Europe: everything you need to know about the history of a region by Tomek Jankowski (947/J), History decoded: the 10 greatest conspiracies of all time by Brad Meltzer (001.9/M), The discovery of Middle Earth: mapping the lost world of the Celts by Graham Robb (940.049/R), or Carol Reardon’s A field guide to Gettysburg (973.7349/R).

The above titles are just a sampling of all that is new to our shelves. The complete list is included in this month’s Reader.

From all of us at the Library, we wish you all the joys of the season.

Happy reading!
