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!

Burning Angel
Author
James Lee Burke
Review
Our characters grew up in some rough parts of New Orleans. Some became paid soldiers in Latin American, some became hitmen for the Mob, but some became detectives like Dave Robicheaux. A family of sharecroppers are ordered off their land, which they have lived on for over a 100 years. Burke weaves a tale that shows the ways of the Old South and how it affects the residents today. A story of cruelty and greed with the old theme of good battling evil. A little difficult to keep the characters straight, but worth the effort.
