A Book Club Evening: Tea, Scones and A Very Private Grave

By Donna Fletcher Crow ~ September 28, 2011

 

A good time was had by all. Especially by me.

The ladies of the Cross of Christ Lutheran book club couldn’t have given me a warmer welcome or more gracious hospitality. The scones were made from my own favorite recipe (but I didn’t have to make them) and each lady was given the recipe printed on peach paper rolled with a blue ribbon.

Once I had piled as much lemon curd, orange marmalade and  perfectly whipped cream (thank you, Cynthia) on my scone as I could manage— setting a good example for the others— we sat at long, white damask-covered tables and I had the fun of alternately asking and answering questions about Felicity, Antony and all their shenanigans in A Very Private Grave.

"It was the best mystery I’ve ever read!" Headed the list of comments that made me purr. "I couldn’t put it down. I kept trying, but I stayed up all night." Followed closely.

And then, the joy of autographing books and introducing readers to the just-arrived-from-England A Darkly Hidden Truth for those anxious to continue the adventures. Maybe after a night of sleep?

Thank you, thank you Cynthia, Anita and all the delightful, enthusiastic readers who really got what I was trying to say. No writer could ask for more.

I’m always thrilled to meet with book clubs, in person locally, or over Skype anywhere in the world. Discussion questions can be found here: http://www.donnafletchercrow.com/AVeryPrivateGraveDiscussionQuestions.pdf
