Calling All Romantics

First in the new Nantucket Brides Trilogy, True Love by Jude Deveraux combines a little mystery, a ghost, a big family, with some reincarnation mixed in to make this a perfect choice for all you hopeless romantics out there. The Taggerts and Montgomerys from the author's Velvet series are together again in this magical tale set on the island of Nantucket.

Time to Chillax. Teens in grades six to 12 are invited to do just that at 1 p.m. Sunday, December 8, at the Fond du Lac Public Library.
