Julie Wendland, Readers’ Services Coordinator for the County Libraries, recently enjoyed Unleashed by local author Sally Barnes. It is a witty mystery novel set against the backdrop of a dog park.

Set in a small English town in Post-WWI era, a trio of likeable characters in young temp Sarah, ghost hunter Alistair, and his charming assistant Matthew encounter suspicious types like a snobby aristocrat, a wary gravedigger, and a shadowy stranger. Our amiable trio aims to unravel the source of the spirit Maddy's distress who intensifies her haunting of a barn where she allegedly killed herself.

November's Goodreads Book Club: Birds!

November 1, 2017
Catherine

The County of Lennox & Addington Public Libraries has its very own online book club via the bookish social networking site Goodreads. Anyone is welcome to join and you can participate as much or as little as you they like. This club doesn't read one book, rather we read by monthly theme. The themes allow for a lot of flexibility and creativity, so generally you are able to avoid books that don’t appeal to you – a common book club pitfall.
