Glass Houses by Louise Penny

When the village of Three Pines sees a mysterious robed figure standing on the village green little do they know it is all tied to drug running through their little Canadian town to the U.S., following an old liquor prohibition route.

 A good mystery starring Penny's character Armand Gamache, chief Superintendent of the police force of Quebec.

Tiger's Prey by Wilbur Smith

Here is a swashbuckling adventure story that is full of pirates, merchants, family rivalry, battles, and romance. It has everything to keep you entertained from the first page. Tiger's Prey would make a better movie than Disney's "Pirates of the Caribbean". Enjoy!!

Heather, the Totality by Matthew Weiner

Busy with the Holidays approaching and figure you have no time to read? Here is a little book, only 138 pages, that can be read in one sitting. A marriage, then a daughter, who is everything to this family of wealth. A father who will do anything to keep them all together. The conclusion will stun and astonish!

Braving It by James Campbell

Image
It's not easy finding good adventure stories anymore, so I was delighted to find this true story about a father taking his fifteen year old daughter into the Alaskan wilderness. They not only had one adventure but went back to Alaska two more times. Braving Alaska means not only dealing with the climate but also the terrain, the wildlife, and its remoteness. And it helps to have friends in the right place at the right time. I recommend this book!

A Novel
by Andy Weir
(Crown) “Weir’s second book does not disappoint! The setting is Artemis, a city on the moon where a young woman named Jazz is a smuggler and a courier trying to eke out a living. Adventure unfolds as Jazz is asked to do a different sort of job by her millionaire employer. He asks her to sabotage the mining operation that provides the city's entire oxygen requirements. She works out a plan, but several calamities befall and all is not what it seems. A fast paced adventure from start to nail-biting finish!” Cynde Suite, Bartow County Library, Cartersville, GA
