On the Book Cart

Sports fans, rejoice! Two contemporary romances on the cart this week have sports themes. Near and dear to this hockey loving librarian’s heart is Chasing Stanley by Deirdre Martin, here just in time for the Eastern Conference Finals. We also have Squeeze Play, another baseball romance featuring Kate Angell’s Richmond Rogues.
Kasey Michaels’ Dial M for Mischief is a romantic comedy caper featuring actress Jolie Sunshine investigating her father’s suspicious death. This is the first of a trilogy featuring the Sunshine sisters, and it looks full of the author’s signature wit. Billionaires Prefer Blondes by Suzanne Enoch is another blend of romance, murder and mayhem, this one featuring art theft and the supposedly dead reappearing alive and well. Erin McCarthy’s You Don’t Know Jack is a humorous tale of mistaken identity that begins with an ominous prediction by a cross-dressing psychic. Romantic suspense is represented by Anne Stuart’s Fire and Ice, full of kidnappings, assassination attempts and international intrigue, and Jordan Dane’s No One Left to Tell, in which tragedies past and present must be examined to reveal a heartless killer. This week’s only historical entry is the last of Celeste Bradley’s Heiress Brides trilogy, Duke Most Wanted. The one and only paranormal on the cart is Stephanie Rowe’s Date Me Baby One More Time, a story revolving around the search for the Goblet of Eternal Youth, a magical artifact currently masquerading as an espresso machine. Lots of fun reading, check the catalog to request any or all.
