Weather cancels May Just Desserts meeting — but let’s still talk on-line!

Just Desserts Logo 225Sadly, the weather conditions have forced us to cancel the May 2016 “Series Share” Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion club meeting. We’re pushing the meetings for the rest of the year back by one month, so we’ll still have a “Series Share”, just in June instead of May.

In the meantime, since we were unable to gather, let’s use this Just Desserts blog entry to have a Round Robin, like we usually do at the end of each meeting. If you’re willing, please respond with a comment to the following question:

What mysteries have you read in the past month that you would like to recommend to your fellow Just Desserts book club members?

(do not share your “Series Share” titles — save those for the June meeting)
