Murder in Passy
Tuesday, March 1st at 7 PM

Join us for an evening of mystery with bestselling author Cara Black, who will read from her latest Aimee Leduc novel.

Passy, home to many of Paris's wealthiest residents, is the last place one would expect a murder. But when Aimee's godfather and longtime mentor, Morbier - a "commissaire" of police - asks her to check on his girlfriend at her home there, that's exactly what Aimee finds. Xavierre, who's planning her daughter's wedding, ends up strangled with her own scarf in her garden while Aimee waits inside. Circumstantial evidence makes Morbier the prime suspect, and to vindicate him, Aimee must identify the real killer. Her investigation leads her to police corruption; the radical Basque terrorist group, ETA; and a kidnapped Spanish princess.

How to Knit a Heart Back Home
Thursday, March 3rd at 7 PM

Rachael Herron will read from her engaging sequel to How To Knit a Love Song, featuring both new and familiar characters in the town of Cypress Hollow.

Lucy Harrison sells books by day and volunteers with the Cypress Hollow fire department by night. Her life is smooth and even-keeled - just the way she likes it. That is, until bad-boy ex-cop Owen Bancroft comes back to town. Lucy has always been fearless about helping others. But when it comes to risking her heart, she realizes she's absolutely terrified.

Lucy and Owen are thrown together by the discovery of the lost work of a local legend: knitting guru Eliza Carpenter. Now Owen, adrift and struggling to redefine himself as a civilian without a badge, will have to learn how to open himself up to life's new possibilities...while Lucy decides just how much of herself she's willing to gamble on love.
