If you’ve been in the library during the past few days, don’t you think it looks pretty? The colorful and cute Easter bunnies, candy, and bulletin board reflect the season, and Nancy must be a decorator at heart because she does the shopping for the decorations, and, sometimes, like this month, even has to put them up by herself. Be sure to thank her next time you come in—I know you appreciate her efforts as much as I do!

“A letter from her long-lost cousin Elsie informs her that Elsie’s granddaughter is on a bus headed to Abbotsville that very day. Reminding Miss Julia of an old family debt, Elsie proclaims that she is sending Trixie to Miss Julia’s to learn to become a lady. The nerve of some people! When the rude and unkempt Trixie arrives, even Sam and Lloyd agree that Miss Julia faces quite a challenge.”

Night Diver by Elizabeth Lowell (F LOW)

“After a family tragedy, Kate Donnelly left the Caribbean behind forever. But a series of bad management decisions has left her family’s diving and marine recovery business drowning in red ink. Without Kate’s financial expertise, the iconic treasure-hunting enterprise started by her grandfather will go under. Unable to say no to the little family she has left, Kate heads back to the beautiful and terrifying ocean that still haunts her nightmares.”
