July 27, 2012 by sdc

When the Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group met in July 2012, we discussed a 2010 volume in Anne Perry's popular "Thomas and Charlotte Pitt" series, Treason at Lisson Grove.

This book was discussed at the Just Desserts meeting on July 26, 2012. 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 August 23rd, at the South Branch Library (6:30 p.m.), as we discuss a volume in the Tea Shop mystery series by Laura Childs, Treason at Lisson Grove.

For additional reminders about upcoming  Just Desserts meetings and/or other announcements of interest to mystery  fans, don't forget to sign up for the Just Desserts e-mail list.
