PROPERTY OF A LADY FAIRE by Simon A. Green
Eddie is an enforcer for the Drood family, a black sheep, a man with a conscience, a powerful human being with unusual gifts. The love of his life, wild witch Molly Metcalf, accompanies him in a most dangerous game: the hunt for the Lady Faire who happens to be in possession of the Lasarus Stone. This is the first sci-fi novel I have read by Green. It reminds me of the Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher, thus an enjoyable read.
BLACK ICE by Becca Fitzpatrick
Britt has something to prove, both to herself and her former boyfriend and she has chosen the Grand Tetons as the place to do it. On spring break with her best friend and her friend’s brother, who also happens to be Britt’s ex, Britt has decided she will hike to places unknown by herself. Before that happens, however, the two girls are kidnapped by two men and the terror begins. This reads somewhat like a Nora Roberts novel, but it’s an easy read and fairly entertaining.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Shawnee Library. The tree is up and decorations adorn the customer service and information desks. In the FFF corner you will find Christmas fiction on display as we near the holidays. On one of the end displays are selections from authors similar to Debbie Macomber and on the other are books from spotlighted western author Max Brand.
