Hot Sun… Blue Skies… Desert Sands…Tropical Breezes …

It’s warmer this week than last week, but we still have a lot of winter ahead of us. So, to make everybody feel better, the card catalog display features books set in places where the sun is shining and the skies are blue: Miami, Hawaii, Arizona… Singapore and Mexico… Saudi Arabia and the Caribbean…

Read about romance, solve a mystery, or learn something new about a warmer latitude.

Or you can check out the featured titles for this week:

The All You Can Dream Buffet –Barbara O’Neal
Lavender Wills has spent most of her life on her Oregon farm, creating a legacy within the organic food movement. When she realizes that her heirs will be her nephews, who will sell the farm to the highest bidder, she invites her three closest online friends to visit her, without telling them that she plans to leave her farm to one of them.

Vanessa and Her Sister – Priya Parmar
Vanessa has always made her sister Virginia the focus of her support and attention, even after they move to London in 1905 and form a bohemian group of friends known as the Bloomsbury Group.

The Scent of Death – Andrew Taylor
During the Revolutionary War, while Manhattan is held by the British, Edward Savill arrives in the city from London. He will be investigating the claims of loyalists dispossessed by the rebellion, but his overall orders require the ‘administration of justice in the city in all its aspects.’ He believes, even though British military authorities disagree, that this includes the investigation of murder, especially when that murder could affect the outcome of the war.
