Saturday September 29th 1:00 PM – 2:30 PM

Best-selling author Carla Neggers will be visiting the Nevins Library to talk about her new book, IMPOSTOR’S LURE, the latest in the popular series featuring FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan.

About the book:

Newlyweds Emma and Colin are suspicious when prosecutor Tamara McDermott is a no-show at a Boston dinner party. Matt Yankowski, head of HIT, Emma and Colin’s small, elite Boston-based team, is a friend of Tamara’s, and he needs them to find her.  In London, a woman who was supposed to meet Emma’s art-detective grandfather to talk about forgeries is discovered near death. Her husband, who stayed behind in Boston, has vanished. The couple’s connection to Tamara adds to the puzzle.  As the search for Tamara intensifies, a seemingly unrelated murder leads Emma, Colin and HIT deep into a maze of misdirection created by a clever, lethal criminal who stays one step ahead of them.  As Emma draws on her expertise in art crimes and Colin on his experience as a deep-cover agent, the investigation takes a devastating turn that tests the strengths of their families and friendships as well as their FBI colleagues as never before. Impostor’s Lure is full of clever twists that will keep readers guessing right to the stunning conclusion!

Carla is the author of more than 75 novels, which have been translated into dozens of languages and sold in over 35 countries.  Copies of this book and others will be available for purchase and signing.  Refreshments will be served.

Author Visit: Peter Swanson

Author Event: Peter Swanson

Wednesday August 1st, 2018 6:30pm – 7:30pm

 

Best Selling author Peter Swanson is returning to the Nevins Library with his latest thriller ALL THE BEAUTIFUL LIES.

A bit about this page-turner, which has been called “a diabolically clever tale of obsession, revenge, and cold-blooded murder”:

Harry Ackerson has always considered his stepmother Alice to be sexy and beautiful, in an “otherworldly” way. She has always been kind and attentive, if a little aloof in the last few years.  Days before his college graduation, Alice calls with shocking news. His father is dead and the police think it’s suicide. Devastated, Harry returns to his father’s home in Maine. There, he and Alice will help each other pick up of the pieces of their lives and uncover what happened to his father.

Shortly after he arrives, Harry meets a mysterious young woman named Grace McGowan. Though she claims to be new to the area, Harry begins to suspect that Grace may not be a complete stranger to his family. But she isn’t the only attractive woman taking an interest in Harry. The sensual Alice is also growing closer, coming on to him in an enticing, clearly sexual way.

Mesmerized by these two women, Harry finds himself falling deeper under their spell. Yet the closer he gets to them, the more isolated he feels, disoriented by a growing fear that both women are hiding dangerous—even deadly—secrets . . . and that neither one is telling the truth.

Local Author Event: “Implant” by Dr. Robert E. Kellan

Local Author Event: Dr. Robert E. Kellan

Wednesday June 6th, 6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Dr. Robert E. Kellan has been practicing opthamology in Methuen for just over 30 years.  He has now taken his personal experiences from developing an implant for cataract patients to setting up an eye center in Lithuania and put them into his first book IMPLANT.

A bit about this espionage thriller:

Internationally acclaimed eye surgeon Alex Kirby designed his cataract intraocular lens to help people recover their sight.  He never thought it could be adapted for surveillance or that he’d find himself deeply involved in the tangled world of international espionage.  In the field for the first time, Kirby quickly learns no mission goes according to plan, especially in a world of beautiful CIA agents and Russia’s brutal Federal Security Force.  For the State Department’s audacious plan to succeed, sacrifices will be required – possibly including Kirby’s own life.

Come hear Dr. Kellan talk about this book, and the events that inspired him to write.  He is generously donating 20 books that will be signed to the first 20 people to arrive at this event!  Refreshements will be served.

Author Event:  Nancy Thayer

Tuesday Jun 5, 2018   6:30 PM  –  7:30 PM

Please join us as we welcome Nancy Thayer back to the Nevins Library!  She will be talking about her latest book:  A Nantucket Wedding.

About the book:

A few years after losing her beloved husband, Alison is doing something she never thought she would do again: getting married. While placing the finishing touches on her summer nuptials, Alison is anxious to introduce her fiancé, David, to her grown daughters: Felicity, a worried married mother of two, and Jane, also married but focused on her career. The sisters have a somewhat distant relationship and Alison hopes that the wedding and the weeks leading up to the ceremony will give the siblings a chance to reconnect, as well as meet and get to know David’s grown children.

As the summer progresses, it is anything but smooth sailing. Felicity stumbles upon a terrible secret that could shatter her carefully cultivated world. Jane finds herself under the spell of her soon-to-be stepbrother, Ethan, who is as charming as he is mysterious. And even Alison is surprised (and slightly alarmed) by her new blended family. Revelations, intrigue, resentments—as the Big Day approaches, will the promise of bliss be a bust?

Books will be available for purchase.  Refreshments will be provided.
