New at the library – “The Darkest Corners” by Kara Thomas. Fayette, Louisiana is a town with a lot of secrets. That’s why Tessa hated it, and tried not to think about what had happened there that last summer she was there, or the deadly secret that only she and her best childhood friend Callie shared. Now, she has to go back to Fayette, and to the one other person who may have answers to her questions. The problem is, she’s also getting closer to a killer who will not be so easily escaped a second time.

Well, that’s all for now – see you at the library!
