Greetings, librarians. The Library Love Fest team has made it back safe and sound from ALA Midwinter in Atlanta, Georgia and we're eager to kick off a new round of LibraryReads suggestions! Fresh debuts, the return of old friends, love, mystery, and some far-out speculative fiction, there's something here for every reader. Remember, the deadline to vote for the April LibraryReads list is February 20th. Happy reading!
Miss You by Kate Eberlen
For fans of: Jojo Moyes, Elin Hilderbrand, and Nick Hornby
A wryly romantic debut novel with echoes of One Day that asks, what if you just walked by the love of your life, but didn’t even know it?
"An unashamedly romantic novel, but one that also deals with the ongoing and deep-seated effects of grief. Both intricate and engrossing, its real pleasure lies in Eberlen’s assured writing with its level of detail and rich characterization."
—Sunday Express (London)
Song of the Lion by Anne Hillerman
For fans of: Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn and Chee novels
A deadly bombing takes Navajo Tribal cops Bernadette Manuelito, Jim Chee, and their mentor, the legendary Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn, back into the past to find a vengeful killer in this riveting Southwestern mystery from the bestselling author of Spider Woman’s Daughter and Rock with Wings.
Praise for Rock with Wings, the previous entry in the Leaphorn, Chee & Manuelito series: "Hillerman uses the southwestern setting as effectively as her late father did while skillfully combining Native American lore with present-day social issues."
