Title: 
Sullivan's Island

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read a Lowcountry Tale, Sullivan's Island by Dorothea Benton Frank.

**We will be meeting the 2nd Tuesday in July instead of the 1st Tuesday**

Set in the steamy, stormy landscape of South Carolina, Sullivan's Island tells the unforgettable story of one woman's courageous journey toward truth.

Born and raised on idyllic Sullivan's Island, Susan Hayes navigated through her turbulent childhood with humor, spunk, and characteristic Southern sass. But years later, she is a conflicted woman with an unfaithful husband, a sometimes resentful teenage daughter, and a heart that aches with painful, poignant memories. And as Susan faces her uncertain future, she realizes that she must go back to her past. To the beachfront house where her sister welcomes her with open arms. To the only place she can truly call home.  - Goodreads.com Read more about Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club: Sullivan's Island by Dorothea Benton Frank

Title: 
Naughty in Nice

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read a Royal Spyness mystery, Naughty in Nice by Rhys Bowen. 

In 1933, Georgie, the mystery world’s favorite penniless heiress, escapes to the French Riviera after Her Majesty the Queen sends her there on a mission to recover her stolen snuff box.

Lady Georgie is honored to be trusted by the Queen—and even more honored when she meets Coco Chanel and is asked to model her latest clothing line. But when a necklace belonging to the Queen is stolen on the catwalk, Georgie not only has to find two priceless items—she also has an unsolved murder on her hands and has to keep an eye on her love interest, Darcy O’Mara, who has been acting awfully suspiciously. -- http://rhysbowen.com/ Read more about Eleanor E.

A Gathering of Old Men

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read the 2012 Community Read Book, A Gathering of Old Men by Earnest Gaines.

Set on a Louisiana sugarcane plantation in the 1970s, A Gathering of Old Men is a powerful depiction of racial tensions arising over the death of a Cajun farmer at the hands of a black man. "Poignant, powerful, earthy...a novel of Southern racial confrontation in which a group of elderly black men band together against whites who seek vengeance for the murder of one of their own."-- Booklist "A fine novel...there is a denouement that will shock and move readers as much as it does the characters."-- Philadelphia Inquirer Read more about Eleanor E.

Title: 
Crunch Time

Join the Eleanor E. Murphy Book Club as we read Crunch Time by Diane Mott Davidson.

Colorado caterer Goldy Schulz cooks up big trouble as she tries to help her longtime friend and fellow chef Yolanda Garcia. When the rental house shared by Yolanda and her irrepressible aunt Ferdinanda is destroyed by arson, the pair move in with cop-turned-PI Ernest McLeod. But then Ernest is shot dead and his house is set on fire, nearly killing Goldy, Yolanda, Ferdinanda, and nine beagle puppies that Ernest had recently rescued from a puppy mill.

Concerned for her friends, Goldy invites them to stay with her while the sheriff’s department investigates. Yet even Goldy’s house isn’t safe, and after a failed break-in by an unknown intruder a cop is sent to keep an eye on things. Then a second body is found.

Swapping her chef’s hat for a sleuthing cap, the intrepid Goldy steps up the investigation. But she’s got to move fast. It’s crunch time to close in on a killer, before he can close in on her.

Filled with danger as well as laughs, wonderful food, and scrumptious recipes, Crunch Time is a delicious indulgence sure to satisfy all of Goldy’s fans. --Amazon.com
