New, gently used & out-of-print books for readers of all ages.

Saturday, September 7, 2019

Join us on Saturday, September 7th at 7:00 for a presentation by Bill Liggett, author of Watermelon Snow. The presentation will be followed by an author reception.
Deep within the melting Blue Glacier in the Washington wilderness, climate scientist Dr. Kate Landry makes a remarkable discovery. Determined to conceal it from colleagues eager to steal her work, she must somehow distract the behavioral scientist NASA sends to study her team.

From the moment he sets foot on the ice, Dr. Grant Poole finds himself in a strange world of unexpected beauty but fraught with extreme dangers he has tried his whole life to avoid. Greeted with suspicion, he soon realizes Kate is hiding something.

When a mysterious illness strikes her crew and an intense storm engulfs their tiny research station, Kate can no longer shield the truth from Grant. Thrown together in a struggle to survive, they are trapped between keeping Kate’s secret and protecting the lives of thousands, even millions. Their time is running out. Can they find a way to save everyone and still preserve Kate’s discovery?

Fans of Michael Crichton and Robin Cook will enjoy this fast-paced cli-fi novel full of suspense and surprises.

Praise for Watermelon Snow

"Liggett does a first-rate job of building suspense as his story unwinds . . . If you like chill-worthy excitement balanced with cold reality, chances are you’ll like this icy adventure." — Joe Kilgore, US Review of Books

"This novel blends climate science, adventure, and a love story into a true page turner. I appreciated the realism and the detailed portrait of the work that climate scientists engage in. The depiction of the female scientist (main character) was quite realistic and could potentially inspire younger women to pursue science careers." — Jadwiga (Yaga) Richter, Scientist, National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)
