Join the North Providence Mystery Book Club on Tuesday December 5, 2017. We will be discussing Christmas is Murder by C.S. Challinor. This is the first book featuring Scots barrister Rex Graves. This cozy mystery takes place during the Christmas holiday season in an English manor house that has been converted to a hotel.
The book summary is: “Not even a blizzard can keep Rex Graves away from Swanmere Manor, a secluded Victorian hotel in the English countryside owned by the eccentric Dahlia Smithings. But instead of Christmas cheer, the Scottish barrister finds a dead guest. Was it a stroke that killed old Mr. Lawdry? Or an almond tart laced with poison? When more guests die, all hopes for a jolly holiday are dashed. Snowbound and terrified, no one can escape the cold-blooded killer. Rex takes it upon himself to unravel the mystery. A biography of President George W. Bush found charred in the fireplace might offer a few clues. Could the killer be the sherry-swilling handyman? The gay antiques dealer with the biting wit? The quarreling newlyweds? Surely it's not Helen D'Arcy, the lovely lass Rex seems to be falling for...”
Join us at 7:00 pm in the Second Floor Meeting Room.
