Do you love mysteries? Join this lively club!
The Mystery Book Club has chosen Tourist Season by Carl Hiaasen for their next meeting, Thursday, October 15th at 12 PM (Noon) via Zoom. All are welcome to join us. Please email us at email@example.com and we will email you a Zoom invite.
The first sign of trouble is a Shriner's fez washed up on a Miami beach. The next is a suitcase containing the almost-legless body of the local chamber of commerce president found floating in a canal ... The locals are desperate to keep the murders under wraps and the tourist money flowing. But it will take a reporter-turned-private eye to make sense of a caper that mixes football players, politicians, and one very hungry crocodile in this classic mystery.
For October we will be reading and discussing Circe by Madeline Miller.
Follows Circe, the banished witch daughter of Helios, as she hones her powers and interacts with famous mythological beings before a conflict with one of the most vengeful Olympians forces her to choose between the worlds of the gods and mortals.
