About the program
Warm up with a good book this winter at Troy Public Library's
3rd Annual Adult Winter Reading Program: Hot Reads for Cold Nights, from January 5 through March 12.

To participate, submit a brief review of each title you read or listen to during the program period. You don't have to write a novel, but please include enough information for the review to be helpful to someone who is thinking about choosing that title. A short paragraph will do.

Each week, two lucky readers will receive a prize, and a Grand Prize of a Kindle Paperwhite eReader and case will be awarded at the conclusion of the program. Prizes will be awarded by random drawings from all reviews submitted, and are provided by the Friends of the Troy Public Library.

So warm up the long, cold Michigan winter nights with some hot reads from the Library. Stop by the Adult Information desk for suggestions, or check out our Bookletters booklists.

Happy reading!

Title
Annie's Ghosts
Author
Steve Luxenburg
Review
It is hard to image a secret as confounding as the one the Luxenburg family discovered, in this age of social media and reality television. The author, a former Washington Post reporter, went on a mission to find the who, what, and most importantly, the why of his mother's secret. While the writing may be too detailed for many fiction readers,the story, set in early, bustling Detroit, is an interesting look at our past attitudes regarding physical and mental challenges.

A holiday for murder
Author
Agatha Christie
Review
In this book, Poirot solves the mystery of who murdered a rich, cranky old man, who has all his children and grandchildren assemble at his house, and pretends to be about to sign a new will. That same night, he is murdered in a room that appears to be locked from the inside, and where the windows are all closed and shuttered.

Title
The Cinderella Murder
Author
Mary Higgins Clark
Review
This book of fiction drudges up an unsolved murder from 20 years ago. The main character, Laurie, is a producer of a TV show called "Under Suspicion," and in this case the show title rings true for everyone involved. The plot thickens as more and more information is uncovered, but in the end the true killer is identified in the nick of time.
