The Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group held its first meeting of 2022 on Zoom, on January 27th, 2022. Thirteen virtual attendees discussed the “Billy Boyle” mystery series, set during World War II, by James R. Benn. If you’ve read any of the 16 volumes (so far) in the Billy Boyle series, and would like to contribute your comments about it, please do so as a reply comment to this blog post, below. Group members were encourage to read any one or more volume in this 16-volume series — amongst the 13 participants, eight different books were selected!

Or, now that in-person meetings are possible again, if you’re logged into your account on Facebook, you can visit the Events page for the Lincoln City Libraries, and mark whether or not you plan to attend upcoming sessions of Just Desserts – this is a great way for you to help us promote this engaging discussion group!
So…What did you think of the “Billy Boyle” series? Have you read any of these, or others, by James R. Benn?
