Kudos and our sincere thanks to Carol Tucker. She taught Basic Computer classes last fall and is teaching them again now. She finished January classes and is already booked for Feb. and half of March, so she must be doing a great job! As a volunteer her service goes “above and beyond” expectations. Those of you who have been or will be her students, be sure to smile and tell her thank you—she deserves it! We also thank and hope you appreciate Tom Titus, who taught his first classes for us on Using the Internet in January. Tom is also a volunteer who gave of his time and talents to help our community be more technologically educated.

Fiction:

Proof of Guilt by Charles Todd (F TOD Rut.15)

“London, summer 1920. An unidentified body appears to have been run down by a motorcar and Ian Rutledge is leading the investigation to uncover what happened. While the signs point to murder, who is the victim? And where, exactly, was he killed?”

Out of Warranty by Haywood Smith (F SMI)

“If you’ve ever struggled with a health insurance claim, you’ll love this witty send-up of the health insurance industry, the drug companies, the medical profession, and falling apart ten years before Medicare.”

Gods Without Men by Hari Kunzru (F KUN)

Jaz and Lisa Matharu are plunged into a public hell after their son vanishes during a family vacation in the California desert. However, The Mojave is a place of strange power. Raj-reappears—inexplicably unharmed—but not unchanged.”

Footprints in the Sand by Mary Jane Clark (F CLA Pip.2)

“It’s the dead of winter and struggling actress and wedding-cake decorator Piper Donovan is thrilled to be in warm, romantic Sarasota, Florida to celebrate a cousin’s wedding. But a cloud seems to be hovering over the whole affair.”

The Devil All the Time by Donald Ray Pollack (F POL)

“Set in rural southern Ohio and West Virginia, the story follows a cast of bizarre characters from the end of WWII to the 1960s. There’s a tormented veteran and his beautiful wife who is dying of cancer. There’s a husband-and-wife team of serial killers. There’s the spider-handling preacher. And caught in the middle is an orphaned boy.”

Looking for Yesterday by Marcia Muller (F MUL McC 29)

“Sharon McCone investigates an unsolved murder—while someone adds to the body count to stop her.”

Beyond Hope’s Journey by Tricia Goyer (F GOY Big.3)

“Marianna Sommer returns to Indiana for two reasons: to help her brother and his girlfriend prepare for a baby and their wedding and to plan her own wedding.”

Umbrella by Will Self (F SEL)

“. . . a stream of consciousness tour de force and a heartbreaking mosaic, a sardonic critique of the woefully misdirected treatment of the mentally ill, the futility of war, and, above all, a summation of the human condition.”

Death in the Floating City by Tasha Alexander (F ALE Ash.7)

“Emily’s childhood nemesis, Emma Callum, scandalized polite society years ago when she eloped with an Italian count. Now her father-in-law lies murdered, and her husband has fled, making him the prime suspect. Emma realizes there’s no one but Emily to turn to for help.”

The Third Bullet by Stephen Hunter (F HUN Swa.2)

“A thriller fifty years in the making. It’s not not even a clue—it’s a ghost echo drifting down through the decades. But it’s enough to get legendary former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger interested in the events of November 22, 1963, and the third bullet that so decisively ended the life of John F. Kennedy and set the stage for one of the most enduring controversies of our time.”
