New to Our Collection

New to Adult Fiction: To Senior Midwife Lucy Ryan in The Midwife Murders (James Patterson), pregnancy is her life’s work. But when two kidnappings and a vicious stabbing happen on her watch in a university hospital in Manhattan, her focus abruptly changes. Something has to be done, and Lucy is fearless enough to try. Rumors begin to swirl, blaming everyone from the Russian Mafia to an underground adoption network. The feisty single mom teams up with a skeptical NYPD detective to solve the case, but the truth is far more twisted than Lucy could ever have imagined

Also new to Adult Fiction: The Vanished (Brett Battles), The Arrivals (Melissa Marr), Indelible (Karin Slaughter), Say You’re Sorry and Watching You (Michael Robotham) #6 and #7 in the “O’Loughlin” series.

New to Adult Non-Fiction: The Invention of Miracles (Katie Booth), 2015 North American Coins & Prices (David C. Harper), and Monument of the Unsung Heroes.

New to Easy Readers: The Amazing Spider-Man : Hanging Around, The Balloon Tree (Phoebe Gillman) and Roots (Brie Phillips), a gift to the Library from the Retired Teachers’ Association of Manitoba in celebration of Manitoba 150. In Roots, the author’s warm and caring message speaks wisely to all cultures about the sanctity of the earth and our need to respect and care for it.
