If you aren’t reading with us, you’re missing out! I started the KC Reads Book Club in March, 2020 because I wanted to create a safe place for people to come together and dish about crime. Books unite us! We lose ourselves in the pages of books and find ourselves in the stories we read!
Here’s what we did in 2020:
We read 14 books and met 11 authors! We read over 4,000 pages! We featured and met best-selling authors and read award-winning books! We laughed during every author discussion, and we shed a few tears along the way. We dished about crime and all things bookish.
Featured Books and Authors (in the order they appeared):
False Impressions by Sandra Nikolai
Redhead in a Blue Convertible by Ivan Scott
Diamonds, Teak & Murder by AM Ialacci
13 Steps to the Cellar by Teresa Mathews
The Power of Conviction by Catrin Russell
Winter Takes All by ML Erdahl
Grim Secrets by Nannette Kreitzman
Lost and Found in Harlem by Delia Pitts
In Wisdom’s Mind by Jensen Moock
The Girl in the Ice by Robert Bryndza
The Mutiny Girl by Karen S. Gordon
A Wash of Black by Chris McDonald
Dead Perfect by Noelle Holten
Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal
Thank you so much to all the authors who met with us to discuss the featured book!
Dark things live in my head, so we featured a few books that were non-mystery to lighten things up now and again. We’ll continue doing this so I don’t lose the members who enjoy romance books and happy endings.
Join us in 2021 for more mystery, more suspense, more heart-pounding moments and friendships built on the foundation of books!
