QA with I Love a Mystery Book Club

  • Tell us about your group: Our club first met in September 2001 at the Ellis Library with four people. We find reading both simulating and relaxing. We always have room for new people and would like seeing anyone joining our group!
  • What's your favorite thing about mysteries? Plot twists make you think. Often we see more than one plot line in a mystery story. Plus it's all about the puzzle! Reading mysteries is a test of cognitive skills.
  • What makes for a good mystery? Well developed characters, a good plot and interesting setting, and great writing style.
