The Curiosity

by Stephen P. Kiernan

Adult Summer Reading 2017

Review by Anne Coughlin of The Curiosity by Stephen Kiernan

Kiernan is my new favorite fiction author. This debut novel tracks the finding and reanimation of a man frozen over a hundred years ago in the arctic ice. Kiernan uses contrast so well - yesterday and today; human rights and science; privacy and the public's insatiable need ofr drama. 2 thumbs up

Review by Anne Coughlin of The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

I have been looking for an engaging mystery series for a long time. I have found it in the engaging, curious, brave, Flavia de Luce. She is only 11 years old but her thought processes and imagination bring lide and delight to the reader. I have started the second book in the series and am already delighted. 2 thumbs up!

Review by Anne Coughlin of Down a Dark Road by Linda Castillo

This audio book follows Chief of POlice Kate Buckholder into a heart-rending stand-off between an escaped convict, Joseph King, and those committed to capturing him. King, a childhood friend of Burkholder, insists on his innocence. What is the truth? Only Kate Burkholder is spurred into reinvestigation of the circumstances. 2 thumbs up!
