Enjoy a coffee, tea, or hot chocolate and snuggle up with a blanket. I have white cheddar popcorn, cheese and kielbasa ( to replace that box of chocolates, ).
So Roe believes that Art Smith has a thing for her and that Ligget is picking up on the vibe. This is also seems to bother Roe for fear that it may jade the interrogation of the murder. I think Roe is enjoying it, even though she may seem angry about some aspects of it.
Seems that as the chapters progress, each new murder points to another murder case mystery; which is a tad bit confusing, so I am keeping notes, .
I like both the women, Jane and Amina, that have been introduced. I have seen friendships that actually had to be sacrificed in order for each to become equally important in their own lives. Seems that instead of growing apart, the separation actually helps Roe and Amina talk more.
Pretty neat how the book club started. A city brings the small town together, whereas it is usually the opposite.
When the club next meets, there is a discussion about whether the murderer is one of them or an outsider. I don't believe it is a club member. I think maybe someone that looks down on the club, thinking the club mocks the judicial system in some way. I am not very good at "who dunnit books" , but that is just my thoughts. Anybody else taking guesses on the why of the murders.
With the next murder, Mr. Pettigrue. I feel like the murders and set ups (Melanie) are actually eliminating suspects. Melanie, who has had an affair with Mr. Wright, is questioned and released. Benjamin found Mr. Pettigrue, and Roe received the box of chocolates.
That's all I have for now, until I go back and scan all the readings again.

; yeah.... I'm, kinda turnedd chocloates myself Antoinette..... Looks like I'll be starting to check the bottoms Thanks for the popcorn....
Well; I still see Roe as a diamond in the rough.... trying to break out or find the polish. And; this is more excitement than she's ever had in her life and as much as she's "frightened", I think she's enjoting it.
I saw some little hairs going up on her neck with the new female detective Lynn) with Arthur.... Who's scrutinizing who "beyond" the investigation.
I agree with you on the friendship aspect of Roe and Amina. Some can go by the wayside, some can blossom after deperation and some, no matter how many years apart, end even though they may not stay in touch very much, can pick up like they just saw each other y'day. I have a friend like that.... 35+ years (that's how long I've known her) and at least 25 of those years we lived in different parts of the country. We don't "speak" all that often, but when we do..... it's like we've never been apart.
Now; as for the murders...... it's gotta be someone in the club I think, or works in the library. Books can checked out, not hard to have a look see who's been taking them out (I don't think the police have done that yet) and as I recall alomost all the murder books are checked out. Surely they could cross reference... As for the "why" of the murders, I don't know.
Arthur, Robin and Roe...... She's gonna end up with one of them I think. But; which one? My bet is Arthur. He's more "solid" I think than Robin even thoughs she's been "lusting" , after him. I had to chuckle at Athrur's way of asking her out; obviously he's outta practise.
I think the murders are gonna continue until he or she is caught. A regular "who done it"?
Sorry I haven't been contributing, but just finally finished the chapters last night. Wow, was that the most gruesome finding or what? Somebody is a real sicko, and I'm starting to think it's going to be someone who we think is a nice guy that is doing it. I don't think it's a female, unless she is a strong one. What if it is Roe's mother's boyfriend? He would know about the candy, as I don't think it would be something that anybody else in the group would have known about.
The characters in this book are really 'visible' to me. Good writing. I know the book is a few years old, but it's working for me. Roe is quite the character, herself. So far I can't figure out which guy I'd like to see her end up with. Arthur seems more like her type, if you go by her 'satisfied to live in the same place her whole life' attitude. But she seems like she likes the excitement of Robin, heck, she's 'lusting' after him! And he's not really all that different from her, either, with the type of work that he does.
I am interested in seeing who's next on the hit list, so yes, lets move this right along.
I am in agreement, Arthur seems so laid back and easy-going, it kinda makes you want them to get together.
I don't think it is a female either, unless it is a very athletic, strong woman.
Roe's mother seems to think that the whole town, as small as it is, has common knowledge of the chocolates. I am trying to think of someone that would actually care to have the ex's address to have mailed using that address.
So, I was thinking that we could meet again on Wednesday, the 19th. Let's go ahead and finish the book. That would be the chapters 12 through 17 (pp. 182-290). How does that sound?
Commotion, Aero? Why, whatever are you saying, ! You take your time. I'm just glad that I am going to get this book back in time to the library. I've had it what, 3 mos. almost? Can't wait to see what we're going to read next, but think I'm going to have to start something else in the meantime.
