Sheila Roberts ABFAS Book-Signing

Saturday, May 11, 1-3pm

What "do" women want? Come find out from Sheila as she meets and greets folks at ABFAS as she signs her latest book, What She Wants.

Jonathan Templar and his poker buddies can''t figure it out. Take Jonathan, for instance. He''s been in love with Lissa Castle since they were kids but, geek that he is, she''s never seen him as her Mr. Perfect. He has one last shot-their high school reunion.

When Jonathan stumbles on a romance novel at the Icicle Falls library sale, he knows he's found the love expert he's been seeking-Vanessa Valentine, top-selling romance author. At first his buddies laugh at him for reading romance novels, but soon they, too, realize that these stories are the world's best textbooks on love. Poker night becomes book club night...and when all is read and done, they're going to be the kind of men women want!

Her latest series set in Icicle Falls is based on Leavenworth, Washington.

Life After Life

9780316176484

By Kate Atkinson


What if you could live again and again, until you got it right?

On a cold and snowy night in 1910, Ursula Todd is born to an English banker and his wife. She dies before she can draw her first breath. On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, in a variety of ways, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.
Life After Life, darkly comic, startlingly poignant, and utterly original is Kate Atkinson at her absolute best.
