Now that the temperature has taken a downward turn, it’s a great time to cozy up with a new book.

Riley Sager is the author of “Home Before Dark.” Maggie Holt and her family moved into Baneberry Hall twenty-five years ago. They spent twenty days there before fleeing in the dead of night. Maggie’s father told the tale of the ghostly happenings in the horror memoir “House of Horrors.” Now she has inherited Baneberry Hall in intends to renovate and sell it. When she starts to experience occurrences straight from her father’s book, she wonders if what he wrote was more fact than fiction.

“No Offense” is new novel by Meg Cabot. Molly Montgomery has moved to Little Bridge Island in the Florida Keys to head the children’s services in the public library and to forget a broken engagement. What she hopes will be a less messy existence takes a turn when a newborn is left in the library restroom. Adding more complications is John Harwell, the sheriff who comes to investigate.

A new science fiction series is “Earthsinger Chronicles” by L. Penelope. The three installments include “Song of Blood and Stone,” “Whispers of Shadow and Flame,” and “Cry of Metal and Bone.”

Two new nonfiction selections are “Grant Writing for Dummies” by Beverly A. Browning and “The Lakota Way” by Joseph M. Marshall III.
