Mystery! is a Russell Library-run book club for mystery lovers.The book group discusses a new mystery novel every month.
November's book is Turkey Trot Murder by Leslie Meier (2017):
Besides the annual Turkey Trot 5K on Thanksgiving Day, Lucy expects the approaching holiday to be a relatively uneventful one—until she finds beautiful Alison Franklin dead and frozen in Blueberry Pond. No one knows much about Alison, except that she was the daughter of wealthy investor Ed Franklin and struggled quietly with drug addiction. Police blame her death on an accidental overdose, but Lucy can’t understand what terrible forces could lead a privileged woman to watery ruin . . .
Alison’s funeral service is just as puzzling. Many believe Ed’s young—and very pregnant—new wife, Mireille, divided the family, leaving Alison to wither on the vine. Did Mireille truly adore her stepchild as Ed claims, or did she pit father against daughter for personal gain?
As a state of unrest descends on Tinker’s Cove, Lucy is thrown into a full-scale investigation. Now, in a race against time, Lucy must beat the killer to the finish line—or she can forget about stuffing and cranberry sauce . . .
Books are available at the Borrowing Desk. Drop-in; no registration required. New members welcome!

"Stop Beating Yourself Up and Take Action"
Join us for a Russell Library Career Workshop with special guest speaker: Diane Lang
If you are feeling down, frustrated, and want to beat yourself up over failures and mistakes in life, remember this is a very normal reaction. We are human beings, and human beings tend to react this way. Join us at this workshop to learn why we beat ourselves up and steps to break the cycle and stop it.
As a Therapist, Educator and Positive Living Expert, Diane has dedicated her career to helping people turn their lives around and is now on a mission to help them develop a sustainable positive attitude that can actually turn one into an optimist, literally.
