New Fiction: Monday, March 14

The Macedon Public Library is fully open for in-person visits. Computers are available and the Discovery Room is also open. Masks are strongly encouraged for all patrons, even if you have been vaccinated. We will continue to offer “Grab and Go” services for those who prefer to place their books on hold online and then pick them up in the cabinet outside the library.

Here are a few of the new books that have come in to the library recently. We invite you to check them out!

One Night On the Island

Spending her thirtieth birthday alone is the last thing that Cleo wanted, but she is going on a solo retreat in the name of re-energizing herself. The remote Irish island she’s booked is a chance to hunker down in a luxury cabin and indulge in some solitary self-care. Mac is also looking forward to some time to himself. With his life deteriorating, his soul searching has brought him to the same Irish island in search of some clarity. Unfortunately, a mix-up with the bookings means both have reserved the same dates. Instantly at odds with each other, Cleo and Mac don’t know how they’re going to manage until the next weekly ferry arrives.

This Might Hurt

Natalie Collins hasn’t heard from her sister in more than half a year. The last time they spoke, Kit was slogging from mundane workdays to obligatory happy hours to crying in the shower about their dead mother. And then she found Wisewood. On a private island off the coast of Maine, Wisewood’s guests commit to six-month stays. During this time, they’re prohibited from contact with the rest of the world. The rules keep guests focused on achieving true fearlessness. Six months later Natalie receives a menacing e-mail threatening to reveal the secret she’s been keeping from Kit. Panicked, Natalie hurries north to come clean to her sister and bring her home. But she’s about to learn that Wisewood won’t let either of them go without a fight.

A Call to Insurrection: A Novel of the Honorverse

Yesterday, the Star Kingdom of Manticore was a small, unimportant interstellar backwater. A quiet little star nation, only recently recovered from the devastating blow of the Plague Years. But Manticore has now become a target. The Star Kingdom isn’t certain who is attacking it, or why, or what its mysterious foe can possibly want, but Queen Elizabeth I knows she has to find out. And she knows that whatever her subjects think, Manticore needs a navy. And it needs allies, friends like the dynamic Republic of Haven and the Andermani Empire. It needs their trade… and to learn from their more experienced and powerful navies. It is the job of officers like Travis Long and his wife, Lisa, to acquire that experience.
