Hello fellow Crime, Mystery, and Thriller readers!

This month's newsletter is short and sweet!

📖MONTH BOOK DISCUSSION📖

We are currently reading The Chalk Man by C.J. Tudor, Behind Closed Doors by B.A. Paris, and Only the Innocent by Rachel Abbott.

For our Focus on the Author project we have selected Agatha Christie. We are currently reading The Mysterious Affair at Styles which is being extended to May 21. We will start reading The Murder of Roger Ackroyd on May 22. This is our schedule our Focus on Agatha Christie project. We hope you'll join us as we explore some of the best works from the Grande Dame of Crime.

And last but not least The Innocence of Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton for Gem's 151 which I'm hoping to wrap up within the next week or so. The next book I'll be reading is Gaudy Night by Dorothy L. Sayers.

Beginning with our June books we are going to be opening two (2) discussions for each book. One discussion will be spoiler free, the second can include spoilers from day one. Thank you Jenny for the suggestion!

Skye | 200 comments I didn't vote because I wasn't certain if I could get the book in time. Forgive me, but I am following rules. I do want to read the Paris book!

Suzy (goodreadscomsuzy_hillard) Gem, I love these monthly updates that focus on the current month's group reads and the poll results for the upcoming month. Really informative and a great reminder of all the good things going on in the group.

(Thanks for the two threads for each group read with and without spoilers - that really helps!)
