Ann-Marie Anderson is the adult services librarian at Tigard Public Library. She is lucky to select the general adult fiction books for the library’s collection. She works on programs, such as author talks, tech classes and craft workshops. She also connects patrons with information and resources when working at the reference desk, and schedules displays and exhibits.
The Unkindness of Ravens by M. E. Hilliard published this past April 2021.
The rave book reviews grabbed me with the comparisons to the novels of Louise Penny, Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes. I’m 100 pages in and so far the librarian heroine has stumbled upon the body of the president of the friends group in the brooding gothic library building (a former manor) and appears to be intelligent, dryly witty, very fashion conscious and has a tragic past. I’m on board.
Snuggled up in the easy chair in my living room with a goldendoodle next to me, getting her head scratched. It’s a very meditative ritual.
Hmm, probably fictional amateur detective Ruth Galloway, who is actually a forensic archaeologist and enjoyably misanthropic. She’s the star of a series by Elly Griffiths.
Wildlife biologist! Or goldendoodle wrangler?
