For March, the Monday Mystery Book Club read Wild Indigo by Sandi Ault. As mysteries go, this one is weak. We thought it was supposed to be a Tony Hillerman read-a-like, but it was a disappointment when held up to Hillerman’s books. However, there were a couple members who did enjoy this one. They weren’t as put off by the author’s note at the beginning of the book as some others were.
This month, the Colbern Road Evening Book Club is discussing The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by C. Alan Bradley. Join us Wednesday, April 25th at 7:00 p.m. as we gather to talk about this enthralling Debut Dagger Award winner.
For our May discussion, we are reading two very different mysteries. The first is definitely a cozy, but it does include some great sounding recipes. The second is the first new Sherlock Holmes mystery actually sanctioned by the estate of Arthur Conan Doyle. Join us at the Antioch Branch on May 21 at 7:00 p.m. to express your views on both.
The Raytown Branch Adult Book Group will be reading Love You More by Lisa Gardner for their June meetings. Tess Leona, a state police trooper, claims to have shot her husband in self-defense. But where is their 6 year old daughter?

Obviously if you love reading, you love the library... at least we like to think so, and we thank you for that in advance. What about all of the other wonderful, FREE enticements? While we have the bestsellers and fun for the kids, the library might just be more than you are picturing.
