This is Kelsey Patterson with the Sioux City Public Library and you’re listening to Check It Out. Probably best known for his No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency series (which is one of my personal favorites), Alexander McCall Smith dives into a new mystery series set in Sweden in The Department of Sensitive Crimes. Dubbed “Scandi-Lite” by his publisher, this book doesn’t have the bleakness of Scandinavian noir, but it isn’t quite a cozy mystery either.

This is Kelsey Patterson with the Sioux City Public Library and you’re listening to Check It Out. Today, I’m changing things up a little and recommending you check out one of my new favorite rom-com writers, Jasmine Guillory. A Bay Area native who has towering stacks of books in her living room, a cake recipe for every occasion, and upwards of 50 lipsticks, Guillory is an author after my own heart. As a debut author, she hit the ground running by publishing not one, but two books in 2018—The Wedding Date and The Proposal, respectively.

Today I would like to take a dive into high fantasy with a twist as I recommend Brandon Sanderson’s novel Final Empire, the first installment of the iconic Mistborn series.
