Cozy winter reads

Owen County Public Library’s Becky Doolin and Susan Hampton share their top-four books to read this winter. Drop us a line at and let us know your favorite.

"Forbidden Fruit: Sin City’s Underworld and the Supper Club Inferno" by Peter Bronson is an “amazing history of Northern Kentucky’s ‘Sin City’ underworld beginning as the first match was struck in 1936, and follows 40 years of crime and corruption up to the Supper Club fire of 1977.”

"The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek" by Kim Michele Richardson is a novel “inspired by the true blueskinned people of Kentucky and the brave and dedicated Kentucky Pack Horse library service of the 1930s.” It’s a “story of raw courage, fierce strength, and one woman’s belief that books can carry us anywhere.”

In "Fear No Evil: An Alex Cross Thriller" by James Patterson Alex Cross enters the final battle with the all-knowing genius who has stalked him and his family for years. With Detective John Sampson, Cross ventures into the rugged Montana wilderness—where they will be the prey. They’re not on the job, but on a personal mission.”

"The Wish" by Nicholas Sparks follows Maggie from age 16 when she was far from home, waiting to give her baby up for adoption and falling for Bryce, who teaches her the art of photography, to the present day when she is asked if she had one wish, what would she wish for this Christmas?
