During our January 2011 meeting, the Just Desserts mystery fiction group discussed Spencer Quinn's first Chet & Bernie mystery, Dog On It.

This book was discussed at the Just Desserts meeting on January 27th, 2011. Whether or not you attended the actual meeting, you are welcome to share your own thoughts and opinions about this book (and series) in a reply comment to this blog post, below.

Join us next on February 24th, 2011, at South Branch Library (6:45 p.m.), as we discuss author Alan Bradley's The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, the first in a popular new series that's already seen three volumes released. Additional titles for upcoming months' discussions have also been posted to the Book Groups page on the libraries' BookGuide web site.
