Reading Ahead: December 2016, part 2

Already feeling the need for a holiday escape? I am! Here are a couple of titles to consider escaping with.

Expecting To Die, by Lisa Jackson. Some places earn their bad reputation through tall tales or chance. Grizzly Falls is different. Here, killers aren’t just the stuff of legends and campfire lore. Someone is in the nighttime shadows, watching the local teens play around in the moonlit woods. Waiting for the right moment, the right victim. Detective Regan Pescoli, distracted by family matters, is not on her A-game to outwit a serial killer, but that's just what she and her partner, Selena Alvarez, must do. But dissecting fact from fiction is easier said than done, even as the death toll steadily rises. Sometime a great thriller is just what you need to lose yourself for a few hours--this might be just what you need!

Island of Glass, by Nora Roberts. This final installment of The Guardians trilogy (following Stars of Fortune and Bay of Sighs) finds the six Guardians hunting the Star of Ice in Ireland, where Doyle must face his tragic past. Three centuries ago, he closed off his heart, yet his warrior spirit is still drawn to the wild. And there’s no one more familiar with the wild than Riley—and the wolf within her... Roberts mixes love, legend and fantasy in this latest series, and fans are devouring them!
