Our DVdL book selection for February 14, 2014 is "The Marseilles Caper" by the well-respected Peter Mayle, a Brit who learned to love France. Karen Laird will facilitate that book club meeting.

FUTURE BOOK SELECTION SUGGESTIONS
Thank you Esteemed Book Club Members for being open to the suggestion to alter our reading list for the remainder of the year. This decision for change will add so much to our reading enjoyment. We will continue to focus on the murder mystery genre, but not particularly mysteries which involve culinary arts as the centeral plot device. We are such a creative bunch that the pot luck food will be spectacular as usual, no matter what!
If further suggestions for a book selection are called for, here are a few titles that are highly-recommended:
"A Dark Adapted Eye" by Barbara Vine
"Fer-de-Lance" by Rex Stout (Nero Wolfe is the main character)
"The Strange Case of Peter the Lett" by Georges Simenon (Maigret is the main character)
"Messenger of Athens" by Anne Zouroudi
"And Then There Were None" by Agatha Christie
"Nine Tailors" by Dorothy L. Sayers
"Anything" by Elizabeth George
Also, consider the continuing series by these great authors: Martin Walker (Bruno), Dona Leon (Brunetti), and Andrea Camilleri (Montalbano)
