We are so excited to announce our next book selection for our June book club–Bluebird, Bluebird by Attica Locke.
“When it comes to law and order, East Texas plays by its own rules–a fact that Darren Mathews, a black Texas Ranger, knows all too well. Deeply ambivalent about growing up black in the lone star state, he was the first in his family to get as far away from Texas as he could. Until duty called him home.
When his allegiance to his roots puts his job in jeopardy, he travels up Highway 59 to the small town of Lark, where two murders–a black lawyer from Chicago and a local white woman–have stirred up a hornet’s nest of resentment. Darren must solve the crimes–and save himself in the process–before Lark’s long-simmering racial fault lines erupt.
I’m not sure about y’all, but I know I could certainly use a break from reality with a good crime fiction book! We are so excited to announce our next book selection for our May book Club–The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James. The Sun Down Motel was written by a Murderino for Murderinos, and it is the Nancy Drew-esque story of murder and ghosts you need to get you through this trying time. In 1982, Viv Delaney goes missing while working as a night clerk at the Sun Down Motel in Upstate New York. Thirty five years later, her niece, Carly, finds herself in search of answers to this mystery that has long haunted their family. This book has ghosts, private detectives, a missing person, and unresolved murders for you to solve right along with Carly!
