Join our monthly virtual meeting of The Mystery Lover's Book Club.   We meet on the second Friday of the month via Zoom. In March we will discuss Track of the Cat by Nevada Barr.
 
Anna Pigeon takes a job as a park ranger looking for peace in the wilderness-but finds murder instead. This is the first novel featuring park ranger Anna Pigeon. When a fellow ranger is killed and his death is ruled a mountain lion attack, Anna's suspicions are raised. It's up to her to save the protected cats from the prejudiced locals--and prove the kill was the work of a species far less rare.  This fast-paced suspense novel won both the Agatha and Anthony Awards.
 
We have a limited number of copies available for checkout. Please contact your local branch to reserve your copy.  An audio version is also available on Hoopla Digital.

Come join us via Zoom for a discussion of Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier.

With a husband she barely knows, a young bride arrives at the immense estate on the Cornish coast that will be her new home, only to be inexorably drawn into the life of the first Mrs. de Winter, the beautiful Rebecca, dead but never forgotten, her suite of rooms never touched, her clothes ready to be worn, her servant still loyal. And as an eerie presentiment of evil tightens around her heart, the second Mrs. de Winter begins her search for the real fate of Rebecca--and for the secrets of Manderley.


We have a limited number of copies available for check out. Please contact your local branch or the Ceres Library at 209-537-8938 to reserve your copy.  Sponsored by Friends of the Ceres Library.
