Join us at The Nightbird Mystery Book Club, a club for mystery lovers of all kinds, meeting monthly on the 2nd Thursday at 6:30. We plan to read a variety of mysteries, from classic authors like Agatha Christie to moderns like Ian Rankin and Louise Penny. We won’t leave out the cozies either, so warm up your teacups! Members will choose a book to read (available through Nightbird for a 10% discount) and discuss each month.
The July selection is A Lovely Murder by Lori Ericson.
Evil tends to snatch away the best-laid plans. Life is finally coming together for reporter Danni Edens. Her mother's mental illness seems to be under control, her career is taking off after a major setback, and she's found love. But a mistake from her past comes back to rob her of that newly found happiness and possibly more. As Danni struggles with the biggest loss of her life, the challenges start piling up. She fights to keep her grief at bay while searching for the killer who took her fiance, but soon realizes the culprit wants more blood. Her vehicle is deliberately sabotaged causing a wreck that injures her best friend. Then she's accused of murder and forced to defend herself. All the while, more bodies are piling up. How can she prove her own innocence, protect her family and friends, and rebuild her life when a killer lurks? Will she lose all she holds dear, including her dream of a happy future? Or even her life?"
