The Guardian Series by Karen Robards
This series is just good escapist fun! If you want something that makes you put the real world on hold for a little bit this is it! The first book is called the Ultimatum. The second book, The Moscow Deception, is just as good as the first! Move over James Bond meet your female counterpart with a little more heart and conscience. Bianca St. Ives has learned to make the most of of what she's been dealt. Learning that you're not like everyone else, that you're part of a secret government experiment that certain parties want to make sure stays secret can put kind of a damper in your spirits, but it doesn't stop Bianca from getting the job done even if that means staying on high alert 24/7 and using every trick in the book that she'd been taught by the person she use to know as Dad. She's going to need every one to stay alive because just about every killer for hire wants her dead. She does get a little help from her friends, one in particular that seems to show up at just the right time. And who may be turning out to be more than just a friend. There is just enough of everything in this book. There's humor and drama and the hint of a romance heating up. I have found a new best author.

Things are looking bright in the library due to an Ameren grant, which allowed us to change out our florescent bulbs with energy efficient, LED light bulbs. The new lights are brighter and use half the watts—a great savings for the library! Thank you Ameren for contributing $2,790 towards our project.
