Third Tuesday Book Club

Join us for a discussion of Home Waters by Elizabeth Devlin.  FINALIST for two National Excellence in Romance Fiction Awards (Best Mainstream and Best First Book)!  In a second-chance story with a waterview, a renowned oceanographer and a non-profit expert - linked by two little girls - fight environmental disaster and their own demons.  He has a deep hole in his heart … can his fight to protect the ocean fill it?

World-famous oceanographer Becket Fallon plunged himself into work after his son’s death. But just when he discovers toxic algae threatens the entire East Coast, his sharp tongue costs him his research funding. And as he struggles to find a solution, the three-year-old grandchildren he’s felt duty-bound to avoid show up on his doorstep… in the arms of their attractive step-aunt Lainey Carmichael.

Copies will be available for checkout at the adult circulation desk.  No sign up is required to attend in person.  If you would like to attend the 4:30 PM discussion remotely, please register so that a meeting link can be sent to you.
