Hey there, I’m Dexter. I serve as the lead circulation clerk at the Valdez-Perry Branch Library. We are located at the corner of Vine Street and East 47th Avenue in the Elyria neighborhood.

In addition to our traditional library services, we host Kids Club, a fun, hour-long craft program, at 11 a.m. on Tuesdays and at 4:30 p.m. Thursdays. We also have an hour-long adult craft hour on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:30 a.m.

‘Paradox Hotel’ by Rob Hart, Adult Fiction

In this sci-fi mystery, we meet the ever-snarky January Jones, special security for the Paradox Hotel. This hotel serves the super rich who are on their way to and from their luxury time-traveling vacations. 

The Paradox Hotel is hosting a summit of the most influential people in the world, but things are getting weird.

After encountering an invisible corpse, Jones’ battle-tested instincts tell her that there is more at play than just the summit. But we quickly discover that Jones’ instincts are compromised by a time-travel sickness that causes her to see visions of past and future events. 

Jones investigates corruption, murder, dinosaur smugglers and the biggest mystery of them all: Who are the ghosts that haunt the Paradox Hotel?

I found this time-travel book to be very accessible. As a reader, I appreciated that this sci-fi mystery was more mystery than sci-fi.
