New Books at the Library

Ready for a new book to read? The Library just shelved some new mysteries, all written by some of Long Islander’s favorite mystery writers:

Camino Island by John Grisham, Y is for Yesterday by Sue Grafton, I know a Secret by Tess Gerritson, and Beneath the Depths by Bruce Robert Coffin (a new Maine writer who is a retired Portland Police detective, whose novels are set in and around Portland. This is his second book: the first was In the Shadows.) Glass Houses by Louise Penny is on order and should be in imminently.

And for some variety we have Ken Follett’s new one, Column of Fire, and Tom Perrotta’s Mrs. Fletcher that is causing quite a stir. The most talked about book of recent months is My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent, and a highly praised book in the Maine Sunday Telegram is Salt House by Lisa Duffy. Maine author Bill Roorbach’s Girl of the Lake Stories and Peter Heller’s Celine round out the list.

If none of these sound interesting, there are many more new books that came in late spring and early summer, so come on in and look around.
