The Just Desserts mystery fiction discussion group held its February 2022 meeting on Zoom, last night (February 24th). Eleven attendees discussed the 2019 stand-alone suspense novel The Silent Patient by author Alex Michaelides. If you have read The Silent Patient, and would like to contribute your comments about it, please do so as a reply comment to this blog post, below.

So…What did you think of The Silent Patient? Have you also read Alex Michaelides’ follow-up novel from 2021, The Maidens?
In March, we return to in-person public meetings again, and we hope to see you at future gatherings of the Just Desserts group. Watch the libraries’ website and social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) for the latest updates! In the meantime, we hope Just Desserters will join us on March 31st, 2022, for a discussion of mystery series that have been continued by secondary authors after the original author passed away. For a list of many of those to choose from, see our Mystery Continuations page on BookGuide.
