Large print books are popular with many of our patrons. Some readers have visual difficulties that make reading regular print impossible. Others just prefer the larger type and feel that it makes reading more enjoyable for them. Either way, the library is constantly adding new books to our large print collection. Check out a few of the ones we added this past week.
Bridged by Kendra Elliot. This is the latest romantic suspense book from an award winning, bestselling author. It tells the thrilling story of FBI Special Agent Ava McLane and police detective Mason Callahan, the man who has stolen her heart. Ava is recovering from a bullet wound when she is called to help in the investigation of a congressman whose tortured body is found dangling from a bridge. When two more bodies are found, they realize they are dealing with a serial killer and the public is desperate for answers. Then Ava’s mentally ill twin spins out of control, which makes her worry that maybe she shares her sister’s self-destructive streak. Ava and Mason have their work cut out for them.

Remember that large print novels are shelved separately from regular print and have a green dot on the spine. Happy reading!
