DIXFIELD – The Adult Reading Group at the Ludden Memorial Library met the first Tuesday of October in a conference rooms downstairs at the library. Due to the Fryeburg Fair, there were only a few present. Tea and coffee were served.

The first book discussed was “Lilibet” by Erickson. It is a memoir of Queen Elizabeth the Second and reminded the reader of Scarlet O’Hara.

“The Hills at Home” by Clark was the next work discussed. A first novel, it is about an old maiden aunt whose home is invaded by relatives. There are multiple characters in the novel, with two Beckys and a Betsy. The reader said the multiple characters were a bit confusing, but the novel contained lots of humor and was a delightful read.

The Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovitch was also discussed as a nice read. The series does not have to be read in order. Each novel is a separate incident.

“Harvest” by Tess Gerritsen, a Maine author, is filled with medical background while spinning a tale of intrigue that carries the reader rapidly through to the end.

“The Night Time is My Time” by Clark is one of her typical suspense novels, full of clues as the reader tries to solve the mystery along with the main character.

“The Note Book,” “Bend in the Road,” “Guardian” and “Nights in Rodanthe,” all by Nicholas Sparks, were thought to be wonderful reads.

“Five Days in Summer” by Kate Pepper was again reviewed as a great read. Last month reported that the author was Lori Pepper. It is in the fiction-mystery category and delves into the make-up and personality of a serial killer.

The reading group meets the first Tuesday of each month from 11 a.m. to noon. All adults are welcome.
