Title
The Preacher's Bride
Author
Jody Hedlund
Review
Interesting read from a period I've not read much in - the 1650's. Set in England, there are sometimes old English words that I don't recognize but, from the context, figure out. This is the story of a Puritan girl who sets out to save a motherless child from death by neglect. Working in the home of an unlicensed preacher, she finds herself in danger. Good story and hard to put down.   Reserve it!

City of Ashes
Author
Cassandra Clare
Review
This is the second book in the “Mortal Instruments” series that begins with “The City of Bones.” That first book was made into a movie that I didn’t think was too bad (for what it was), so I decided to give the series a try. It just wasn’t for me. I occasionally read “teen” fiction, and I find some enjoyable. This book seemed like derivative fan fiction to me; and because the characters behave like teenagers (which would be interesting if you were a teenager), for an adult it all seemed quite trite and trivial. Teenagers with crushes, identity crises, and authority issues can be trying enough – but when many of them have supernatural powers or are involved in supernatural events, it gets a bit much.  Reserve it!

Killing Cupid
Author
Laura Levine
Review
This is book 12 in the series. Jaine is hired to write a brochure for a dating service “Dates of Joy.” When the horrible owner is poisoned by one of her chocolates, Jaine finds herself as one of the top suspects. Now Janine must find the killer to clear her name. This one is very funny.  Reserve it!
