Erin Kernohan-Berning, Branch Services Librarian: Hello I’m Erin Kernohan-Berning from the Haliburton County Public Library and this is Library Moments. Once a week, some of us from the library will come and talk about books, events, or the services we offer at the library.
Summer is here and so are summer reads! This summer on Library Moments, Sherrill Sherwood and I will be sharing with you some of the most anticipated books of the summer. Whether relaxing on the dock, or curling up to wait out a summer rain, there is a book out there for you to enjoy.
On this final installment of Library Moments: Summer Reads, Sherrill Sherwood and I will each talk about an upcoming book for you to enjoy this summer.
Sherrill Sherwood, Collections Development Coordinator: From New York Times bestselling author Elin Hilderbrand, comes a novel about the many ways family can fill our lives with love…if they don’t kill us first. In The Perfect Couple, it’s Nantucket wedding season, also known as summer. The sight of a bride racing down Main Street is as common as the sun setting at the beach. The Otis-Winbury wedding promises to be an event to remember: the groom’s wealthy parents have spared no expense to host a lavish ceremony at their oceanfront estate. But it’s going to be memorable for all the wrong reasons after tragedy strikes: a body is discovered in Nantucket Harbor just hours before the ceremony and everyone in the wedding party is suddenly a suspect. As the Chief of Police interviews the bride, the groom, the groom’s famous mystery-novelist mother, and even a member of his own family, he discovers that every wedding is a minefield and no couple is perfect. Featuring favorite characters from her previous novels The Castaways, Beautiful Day, and A Summer Affair, The Perfect Couple proves once again that Elin Hilderbrand is the queen of the summer beach read.
Erin: In The Other Woman by Daniel Silva, a mysterious woman begins work on a dangerous memoir in an isolated village in the mountains of Andalusia. The woman is the keeper of the Kremlin’s most closely guarded secret – a mole inserted into the West who now stands on the doorstep of ultimate power. Only Gabriel Allon, legendary art restorer and assassin, can unravel the conspiracy. He has battled dark forces before, and is lured into the hunt for the traitor after his most important asset inside Russian intelligence is brutally assassinated while trying to defect in Vienna. Now he and the Russians will engage in a final epic showdown, with the fate of the postwar global order hanging in the balance. The Other Woman is Daniel Silva’s eighteenth installment of his Gabriel Allon series.
