The book club meeting can be attended on Zoom or in-person. If you would like to attend virtually, please email Joyce at for the Zoom link.

If you attend in-person, please try to arrive before 6:50, as that is when we lock our doors for the evening. If the doors are locked when you arrive, try ringing the back doorbell, or give Joyce a call. Thank you!

Summary: Rebecca Ramsey returned to the Newfound Lake area of New Hampshire because it feels like home. The library is Rebecca’s safe place, but the local seafood restaurant at the foot of the lake is where all the action happens. While dining on the patio of the seasonal hotspot on her day off, a body is pulled from the lake. Kenny Towne, Chief of Police, is on the scene to investigate and catalog the evidence.

Rebecca and Kenny grew up around Newfound, along with the collection of suspects in the ongoing investigation. Since the deceased is also a Newfound native, old rivalries come into play, including feuds dating back to high school.

Will Chief Towne and Rebecca solve this mystery together or end up getting in each other’s way?
