Friday Mystery Book Discussion & Lunch
Our next discussion & lunch will Friday, June 28, at the library from 11:40 am to 12:50 pm. We'll provide the books prior to the meeting, but you'll need to bring your own lunch and drink... and, of course, your thoughts and opinions on the reading selection!
Book Discussion: Matrimony and Murder by Lois Lamanna.
| Two sisters, Marlene and Bethany, attend the wedding of a distant cousin hoping to find information about the family tree. What they discover is a body in the church basement, a tactless police officer, a cosmetics case containing fifty thousand dollars, and a hidden family secret.
When the groom is arrested at the reception, the sisters are challenged with the task of proving his innocence. After all, no family member of theirs would commit murder -- or would they?
Mystery Book Discussion Group has read many great stories over the years and, on occasion, been fortunate enough to visit with the author! In June, we'll have the pleasure of meeting author Lois Lamanna. She'll talk about a variety of topics, including how she got started writing and her next book in the mystery series.
As a special treat for February's discussion, members had lunch with author Brad Parks via Skype!
Members had read either the first or second books in his Carter Ross series (Faces of the Gone and Eyes of the Innocent, which can both be found in the Ligonier Valley Library's collection).
The 4th book in the Carter Ross series "The Good Cop" was released in March of 2013.
Does the idea of discussing
books over your lunch break sound interesting?
Are you a lover of the mystery/thriller genre?
New members are always welcome and joining is easy!
Every other month, a book is selected and listed on this web page. In order to join, you simply need to read the book (a copy can be reserved for you, see below), and then show up on the day of the "discussion & lunch" with your lunch and beverage and thoughts on the book! The group usually meets in the downstairs community room of the Ligonier Valley Library from 11:40 am to 12:50 pm. Don't worry if you can't get here right at 11:40 am, just get here as soon as you can.
