Game of Thrones Season 3, Gothic and Feel Good Stories highlight Baldwin New Titles 4/28/2014.

A Family Affair by Fern Michaels:  In a city built on dreams, Trisha Holiday makes her living moving like one. But out of her dancer's costume, she's as down-to-earth as they come. That's why she ignores the admiring note--and the accompanying $1000 bill--that arrives backstage after one of her ethereal performances. Yet the sender, a wealthy foreign prince, isn't easily dissuaded. Seven years living and studying in the United States have made Malik long for the freedom to choose his own bride--and the woman he wants is Trisha. After a breathtaking visit to Malik's kingdom culminates in a marriage proposal, Trish attempts to adjust to an opulent new lifestyle complete with servants, sumptuous surroundings, and vast wealth. None of that matters to Trish as much as Malik's love. With Malik's sister Soraya proving a trusted new friend, they plan a lavish wedding surpassing anything she could have imagined. Yet Trish's new life will have challenges too--adjusting to a new and complex culture, to the myriad demands of Malik's royal position, and to the expectations she faces as his wife. In the midst of her own major changes, Trish vows to help her sister, Emma, whose marriage has ended in a bitter breakup. And through it all, Trish will strive to stay true to what matters most--love, true friendship, and the ties that hold family together across the miles and the years.

Live to See Tomorrow by Iris Johansen:  Catherine Ling: raised on the streets of Hong Kong, she has been a shadowy CIA Operative since she was fourteen years old. Now, years later, Catherine is as lethal as she is beautiful. There are only a few things in life she cares for. One is her son. Kidnapped when he was only two, Catherine has only recently been reunited with him and the vow of her heart is never to let him face danger again. The other is her mentor, Hu Chang. Mysterious, brilliant, and deadly, Hu Chang taught Catherine everything she knows and she is loyal to him. Now, Hu Chang is calling Catherine to a new task: rescue an imprisoned journalist in Tibet--a woman who has been subjected to unspeakable horrors. Her connection to Hu Chang is unknown. What's also unknown is that Catherine will be going up against a man so evil, his crimes have stretched back into this area for forty years. Is Catherine being used as a pawn by Hu Chang? Can she save a woman she's never even met? And will either of them live to see tomorrow?  

 Natchez Burning by Greg Iles:  As a former prosecutor and writer living in the small town of Natchez, Mississippi, where he grew up, Penn Cage has always been a fighter. He's never been one to see injustice and do nothing about it. He learned it from his father, Tom Cage, a beloved family doctor who spent decades taking care of folks no matter their origin or circumstance, rich or poor, black or white. Penn has always thought of his dad as a kind of Atticus Finch-like character, a man who had guts and backbone, even when his friends and neighbors didn't. And the old adage couldn't be more true: "Like father, like son". Or is it?
In a place like rural Mississippi, when the issues are race and crime, the pressures are formidable and the risks no less life-threatening. So when Tom Cage finds himself on the verge of being charged with murder-of his long-time nurse assistant and friend Viola Turner-Penn knows he must find the truth and rescue his father. The catch: his father believes client privilege forbids him from talking about the night in question and so refuses to say anything to help himself or Penn.
Penn soon learns that Viola's death is only the tip of the iceberg-for it brings into question several horrific, unsolved murders in the 1960s, one of which was her brother's. And it points to a group of secretive KKK members who call themselves the "Double Eagles", a crew that has cut a swath across the area for decades and includes Brody Royal, one of the wealthiest and most ruthless businessmen in the state, and brothers Frank and Snake Knox, men who have been born and bred to always get their way. Until now.  Check Availability

But this prince, Hercules, knows nothing of his real identity or his destiny. He desires only one thing: the love of Hebe, Princess of Crete, who is promised to his brother.

Baldwin  Public Library About  Us  is interesting and heart warming story that begins as a penny dreadful when needed library  renovations and  expansion  is reported to cost  $21.5 million dollars.  Curiously that  is  also what a three deck parking garage  would cost. The town divides in regards to what to do. Peace is restored when residents realize  they can have their cake and park it too. As a  community  served by a library the 12.5 million works out to  $124 a year or just over $10 a month which by itself won't buy much in the way of entertainment or information. 

Worse  where you get either ? Kroger's ?  The Video stores are gone, replaced by Red Box. Barnes Noble is the last of the book stores. Newspapers and Magazines are disappearing.

The popular HBO series Game of Thrones draws 5 million viewers a week and is also reportedly the most  bootlegged  program on television. Video pirates say they copy the show  because they can't afford HBO which costs approximately $15 a month  and requires an approximate $50.00 plus monthly cable or satellite subscription. "The Baldwin  Public Library About Us" concludes  with residents  happy to live in a community with a library which (yes) has seasons I , II,  and III, of....
