Plano Reads: Mysteries
This month for our Mystery Book Club, it’s What Are You Reading? style, and we have some recommendations.
Join a live, virtual discussion of this month’s theme: What Mystery Are You Reading Now? on Thursday, July 16 at 7 p.m. Register here.
Two of our Librarians who lead the Mystery Book Club, Emery and Peter, have put together a list of what they’re currently reading and mysteries they recommend.
Use our online catalog to search for titles you are interested in and place a request for curb-side pick-up; otherwise, use our eBook and eAudiobook collection via Overdrive and the Libby app.
For our July meeting, I’m reading Limetown by Cote Smith and I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara (the audiobook). Here are some others I’d recommend:
