Gardening and more at the Library

Why not pick up a few gardening books from the Barriere library to get you in the mood

The days are getting a little longer and it’s not quite so cold outside.  This means it’s time to start thinking about your garden.  Why not pick up a few gardening books from the library to get you in the mood and start off the upcoming growing season on the right note. There are things you can start doing now, that will make your gardening chores that much easier… such as deciding what types of things you will want to plant, and if they can be started inside, and when to plant in order to have them ready for transferring to the garden in the spring.

Of course, if you’re not a gardener, you can always pick up a book or two to read just for the shear enjoyment of it.

Eggs In A Casket by Laura Childs – While Petra handles the breakfast rush at the Cackleberry Club, the café’s other two owners, Suzanne and Toni, head to Memorial Cemetery to help prepare for its 150th anniversary celebration. But as they search the winding paths for the historical society tent, they discover something else out of place: the body of ex-prison warden Lester Drummond lying facedown in someone else’s freshly dug grave.

Forget Me Not by Fern Michaels – With a popular comic strip, card line, and children’s cartoon to her name, Lucy Brighton should be in a happy place. But the ache of a cold, lonely childhood lingers on. Even though she still lives in the New Jersey house where she grew up, Lucy has had little contact with her parents since they moved to Florida five years ago. Then Lucy receives a call that her parents have been killed in a car crash. While settling their affairs in Florida, Lucy begins to realize how little she really knew about their lives. She has no way to explain the mysterious safe in their bedroom, with its cache of fake passports, cash, and weapons. What secrets were the Brightons keeping? Were they even who they claimed to be? The answers will shatter everything she once believed about her parents – and about herself.

Standup Guy by Stuart Woods – Stone Barrington’s newest client does not seem the type to bring mayhem in his wake. A polite, well-deported gentleman, he comes to Stone seeking legal expertise on an unusual—and potentially lucrative—dilemma. Stone points him in the right direction and sends him on his way, but it’s soon clear Stone hasn’t seen the end of the case. Several people are keenly interested in this gentleman’s activities and how they may relate to a long-ago crime . . . and some of them will stop at nothing to find the information they desire.
