Results of May 20014 Series Share gathering

June 01, 2014 by sdc
Hey, mystery fans! Looking for something good to read? The May 2014 Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group meeting was our annual "Series Share" night. Group members did not all read the same book, but instead were encouraged to read the first or second volume in ANY new mystery/thriller/suspense series that had begun in the past 3 to 4 years. All attendees had a chance, then, to describe whatever series they had chosen, and to offer up their opinions about the characters, writing style, etc.

Here’s a list of the novels Just Desserts members enjoyed for the "Series Share": And here's a few older titles and non-mysteries were also brought up at the latest meeting: So, what mysteries have you been reading that you’d recommend?

Join us next on May 29th, 2014, 6:30 p.m. at the South Branch Library for our annual Series Share night. We're not all reading the same book for that meeting. Instead, participants are encouraged to read the first volume of ANY new mystery/suspense/thriller series that's premiered in the past 4 years. Everyone will get a chance to share their impressions and opinions of that new series with the group -- should be an opportunity to get lots of good suggestions for new authors to try!

We hope to see you then!
