At the May 31st, 2018 meeting of the Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group, our theme was our annual “Series Share” – participants were encouraged to read the first or second volume in any “new” mystery/thriller/suspense series that has started within the past 3 years (2016-2018). Each person was encouraged to describe the series, the central character(s), the themes or tone, the setting, and ultimately whether they would give it a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down” recommendation. For the most part, group members met these guidelines, though not 100%. This session was audio-recorded and will eventually be released through the libraries’ series of podcasts. We did NOT have time at the end of this month’s session for our traditional “round robin” to find out what else Just Desserts members have been reading. [NOTE: Titles not currently owned by the Lincoln City Libraries have been submitted as purchase suggestions through the libraries’ Suggest-a-Title form.]
Join us again on June 28, 2018 at South Branch for a group discussion of James Lee Burke’s Robicheaux (2017).
Here’s the list of the titles/series of mystery/suspense books discussed by Just Desserts members at our May 2018 meeting:
