Dogs and Cats Solving Mysteries Together

The Mysterious Mornings group met this morning and talked about their favorite mysteries featuring dogs and cats. If it was mystery and it featured a main character that is not human, it fit this month's subgenre.

Here are the group favorites listed by author and their series main character:
  • Barrett, Lorna (Booktown Mystery)
  • Brown, Rita Mae (Jane Arnold)
  • Clement, Blaize (Dixie Hemingway)
  • Conant, Susan (Dog Lover’s)
  • David, Evelyn (Mac Sullivan)
  • Hale, Rebecca M. (Rebecca)
  • Henry, Sue (Maxie and Stretch)
  • Johnston, Linda O. (Kendra Ballantyne)
  • Lanier, Virginia (Jo Beth Sidden)
  • McCoy, Judi (Ellie Engleman)
  • Quinn, Spencer (Chet and Bernie)
  • Webb, Betty (Gunn Zoo)
Interesting in joining in on a Mysterious Morning discussion? A list of suggested authors and titles are available at the Bridgewater Library and books will be on display about a month prior to the discussion. (If you’re a voracious mystery reader you can read more than one.) Our next theme/subgenre is Lights! Camera! Murder!

If it’s a mystery and it and was made into a movie or television series, then it fits this month’s sub-genre.  We’ll be talking about how true to the book the big (or small screen) adaptations are, so be sure to read and watch, because that’ll be the major talking point at our discussion on Wednesday, July 20th at 9:30am at the Bridgewater Library.
