Reading Recommendations from Just Desserts members – February 2020 + a recipe!

At the February 27th, 2020 meeting of the Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group, following the discussion of the assigned topic of the month – Louise Penny’s The Beautiful Mystery – we held our monthly “round robin”, in which all 19 attendees were able to share recommendations of what other books they’ve been reading, listening to or viewing recently.

Here’s the list of mystery, thriller and suspense books recommended by Just Desserts members in February 2020:

What mysteries have you been reading lately that you’d recommend?

Added bonus: The Just Desserts book discussion group also involves sharing desserts during our discussions, and sometimes the attendees want to get recipes for some of the homemade treats. That happened with the following recipe from our February meeting:

PB Fritos: A No-Bake Treat — from Christy A.


1 cup peanut butter
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 bag of Fritos corn chips (Fritos Scoops will work as well) – 18-oz or smaller


Spread the bag of Fritos corn chips in a greased 15″ by 10″ by 1″ baking dish.

Combine the syrup and sugar in a small saucepan, and bring to a boil for one minute over medium heat, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar. Remove from heat, and stir in peanut butter until smooth.

Pour liquid mixture over bag of Fritos, stirring to evenly coat as much of the Fritos as you can, and let cool. Slice into individual portions or just break up into chunks for serving.
