The Vanishing

Author: Wendy Webb

Review by: Denise C, (Sturgeon Bay) Door County Library

I now read all 3 of Wendy Webb's books and hopefully she will come out with a new book soon.

Julia's life is collapsing around her until a stranger shows up on her doorstep and offers her a a job to be his mother's caretaker. She arrives at Havenwood and starts to live a life in luxury. And to make things more interesting her new charge is her favorite author the world thought was long dead.

The Quest

Author: Nelson DeMille

Review by: Audreyperry, Algoma Public Library

Loooong book. 16 discs. There were parts of it that I thoroughly enjoyed and other parts that were really off the storyline and very long in unnecessary detail. Not my favorite Mr. DeMille book.

Spilled Blood

Author: Brian Freeman

Review by: Audreyperry, Algoma Public Library

This is my first time with this author. I usually listen to or read thriller genre, but I will say this was a fairly disturbing book. Pushed me right to the point of thinking I may not finish it. I did finish and it was worth the listen, but parts were hard to get through.

The First Rule of Swimmimg

Author: Courtney Angela Brkic

Review by: PacaLipstick Gramma, Appleton Public Library

First of all, the cover is intriguing. And you shouldn't judge by it's cover, but had it not been for the cover, I am sure I would have passed it over a few times.

I rated this book 5 stars ~ a book that was closer to 5 stars rather than 4, and so much more deserving of the...

The Cold Nowhere

Author: Brian Freeman

Review by: khauer, Shawano City-County Library

Uganda Be Kidding Me

Author: Chelsea Handler

Review by: Denise C, (Sturgeon Bay) Door County Library

Chelsea Handlers new book is just as hilarious as her other books. This time she writes about traveling and the hilarious things that happened to her that probably were not funny when they actually happened. Chelsea's first adventure is a safari in Africa where she does not bat an eye when an elephant comes...
