Mystery Book Group

magnifying glassThe Mystery Book Club meets at the store on the second Thursday of every month with Barb as the fearless leader. A small group, discussion books range from historical mysteries to contemporary thrillers. Books are usually picked a couple months in advance, but sometimes the group goes crazy and lines up books for several months.

As with all of our groups, the Mystery Book Club is open to anyone interested and can be a great place to meet fellow readers. We’ve seen wonderful
friendships form and grow while discussing murder and mayhem – as it should be.

An Unexpected Corpse, A White Mountain Mystery by Cathy Strasser
Thursday, April 13 at 7pm

An Unexpected Corpse, A White Mountain Mystery by Cathy StrasserIn the second of the White Mountain Mysteries, the investigative team of State Troopers Cliff Codey and Mike Eldrich are summoned once again to the scene of a murder out in the "North Country" of New Hampshire—that sparsely settled area north of the Franconia Notch.

A midnight distress call comes from an old acquaintance of Cliff's named Duane, reporting he's found a body during a late-night hike. While not the brightest bulb in the pack, Duane has no trouble determining the man is dead after observing the large gunshot wound to his chest. Complicating things further, the body is lying in the field of the town's nastiest family, famous for their temper and tendency to fight at the slightest provocation. Cliff and Mike set out to identify the victim and his killer while being both helped and hindered by a host of local characters. They need to keep a sharp eye on the information they're given, since several suspects have secrets they don't want to share.

The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte
Thursday, May 11, 7 p.m.

We are celebrating our 25th Anniversary here at the bookstore so we decided to do a little time traveling back to 1992, when the store first opened to read one of the hot books of that year!

A provocative literary thriller that playfully pays tribute to classic tales of mystery and adventure.

The Club Dumas by Arturo Perez-Reverte Lucas Corso is a book detective, a middle-aged mercenary hired to hunt down rare editions for wealthy and unscrupulous clients. When a well-known bibliophile is found dead, leaving behind part of the original manuscript of Alexandre Dumas's The Three Musketeers, Corso is brought in to authenticate the fragment. He is soon drawn into a swirling plot involving devil worship, occult practices, and swashbuckling derring-do among a cast of characters bearing a suspicious resemblance to those of Dumas's masterpiece. Aided by a mysterious beauty named for a Conan Doyle heroine, Corso travels from Madrid to Toledo to Paris on the killer's trail in this twisty intellectual romp through the book world.
