    Our Mystery Book Club will be reviewing The Lion In the Valley in October. Could you tell me the questions your group discussed?”

    Hello, Georgia…thanks for your question!

    Sadly, we didn’t use a prepared list of questions specific to “The Lion in the Valley” when our Just Desserts group discussed it…we used more of a free-flowing discussion style based on whatever elements of the book the group members felt like touching upon.

    Topics that we covered included: Historical accuracy (and whether or not it was important for a work like this); the relationships of the characters, and Amelia’s attitudes towards sex and the male-dominated career path she is on; the “reveal” of the series’ main antagonist in this volume, and his connection to Amelia; whether or not the portrayal of Amelia’s son is realistic.

    The group was, generally, all pleased with this monthly selection — several members had already read many of the volumes in this series, and shared with the rest of us a general overview of Amelia’s life in later volumes.

    Hope this helps a little. Enjoy your discussion!”
