Dallas Book Club at Barnes & Noble Lincoln Park

Monthly meeting on fourth Thursday at the Barnes & Noble.  Join us for dinner at 5:00 pm at Cheescake Factory before book club.

This month's reads leave us feeling decidedly patriotic.


We will be reading Jude Deveraux's exciting historical romance The Raider and Leslie Meier's thrilling mystery Star-Spangled Murder.

Jude Deveraux


Jude Deveraux is the author of thirty-seven New York Times bestsellers, including Scarlet Nights, Days of Gold, Lavender Morning, Return to Summerhouse, Secrets, Someone to Love, Wild Orchids, Holly, The Mulberry Tree, The Summerhouse, and Temptation. To date, there are more than 50 million copies of her books in print worldwide. She lives in North Carolina.


Star Spangled Murder by: Leslie Meier

Lucy Stone is in the doghouse—with her next-door neighbor, Mrs. Prudence Pratt. It seems that Kudo, the Stones' misbehaving mutt, has developed a taste for Mrs. Pratt's blue-ribbon winning chickens, as well an escape artist's talent for sneaking out. With the Fourth of July coming up, Lucy doesn't want to set off any more fireworks with the crabby Prudence. Another sign that the crazy days of summer are in full swing arrives when a group of naturists—a.k.a. nudists— descends on Tinker's Cove, skinny-dipping at the pond that borders Mrs. Pratt's property, giving her something else to complain about. Worse still, the local lobstermen are upset about poachers—and suspicion falls on Mrs. Pratt's husband and son. Then the July Fourth fireworks are canceled to protect a patch of extremely rare purple- spotted lichen, and Mrs. Pratt is the victim of a hit and run.

Tinker's Cove is full of suspects, but none with so personal a motive as the Stones. Their feud with Mrs. Pratt has put them at risk of losing their freedom this Independence Day—unless Lucy can start things off with a bang by catching a red, white and blue killer...

    wow. The Raider! That's classic Deveraux. I read that one years ago. I may have to pull it out again. I'm not saying yes for sure I'll be at the meeting, but if I can, I will be.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
