Let's Party!

By Lizzie Turner from the Ashton Corners Book Club Mysteries
                 written by Erika Chase

So what does the Ashton Corners gang do to celebrate Valentine’s Day? Not the usual, that’s for sure. Since the romantic day falls on a Sunday this year, we’ve decided to host a brunch at the local Eagles Hall, the same location we held the Book Fair last spring. If you read BOOK FAIR AND FOUL, you’ll recognize the place immediately.

This is a fundraiser for the local Literacy group, special to Sally Jo and me because we teach night school classes for them. The theme is Couples in Mystery and everyone is invited to dress as their favorite crime solving duos.

For instance, Mark Dreyfus and I are going as Phryne Fisher and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson – I’m sure we won’t be the only ones. Sally Jo Baker and Jacob Smith will make an appearance as Tommy and Tuppence. We’re not sure about Bob Miller and Molly Mathews but I’m betting she’ll talk him into being Hercule Poirot to her Miss Marple. Okay, they’re not really a couple but they are a couple of sleuths penned by the amazing Agatha Christie
All the book club members are plotting ways to make this another memorable event in our community and you can bet, there’ll be some mysterious games involved. Plus lots of great eats and cheese straws, of course!

Your invitation is in the mail! Who will you come dressed as?

Look for A KILLER READ,  (#2 on the Barnes and Noble Mystery Bestseller List and an Agatha Award nominee for Best First Mystery),  READ AND BURIED, COVER STORY, and BOOK FAIR AND FOUL on-line or at your favorite bookstore.


Book #5, LAW AND AUTHOR, now available.

  6. Bernie Little and bring my dog Chet.

  7. I always get hooked by the artwork and clever titles, but despite people say don't judge a book by it cover, I've found clever titles more than often we also clever stories and characters. I love this series...inside and out!

  8. Lord Peter Whimsey and Harriet Vane!
    Like your choice of couple.

  9. Love Miss Fisher's mysteries. Can't wait to read the book.

  10. If I could get my husband to come I would want to come as Nick and Nora Charles, although I don't know where we could borrow Asta from...
