Cozy Winter Reads


Contributor, Owen County Public Library

Owen County Public Library’s (OCPL) Becky Doolin shares her top-four books to read this winter. Drop us a line at, and let us know your favorite.

Triple Cross by James Patterson is the 30th in the Alex Cross series. Detective Alex Cross hunts down a serial killer

who targets entire families—and who next will be coming for Cross. OCPL’s Becky Doolin says, “The series is becoming a Prime video series soon. Great to read this winter if you need a long series to read.”

Celebrate the Christmas season with Holidays in Virgin River: Romance Stories for the Holidays by Robyn Carr. Released Oct. 4, this special edition contains two fan-favorite stories from the Virgin River series. Includes exclusive recipes inspired by the Virgin River characters.

Waxing On is the autobiography of Ralph Macchio. Since the Karate Kid first crane-kicked its way into the pop culture stratosphere in June 1984, there hasn’t been a week Ralph Macchio hasn’t heard friendly shouts of “Wax on, wax off” or “Sweep the leg!” Now, with Macchio reprising his role of Daniel LaRusso in the No. 1 ranked Netflix show Cobra Kai, he is finally ready to look back at this classic movie and give the fans something they’ve long craved.

Christmas in the Cottage is a keepsake collection of holiday homes bedecked in festive decor to celebrate the most magical season of the year. Thoughtfully compiled, this book shines with 400 beautiful photographs across 220 pages, each filled with ideas for hosting the loveliest season at home.
