New at the library – “Crazy Like a Fox” by Rita Mae Brown. Crisp October winds bode well for the annual hunting season… until Sister Jane visits the Museum of Hounds and Hunting for a board meeting and stumbles across a mystery. An antique hunting horn has disappeared, and the only clue seems to be a selfie of the horn’s former owner, who disappeared and was declared dead in 1954. Now Sister and her faithful hounds are sniffing around the history of the Jefferson Hunting Club, and someone doesn’t want her to follow the trail which will lead her to the identity of a murderer.

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