Thrills & Chills Book Club

When: February 20, 2024 | 5:30 PM
Where: Dog-Eared Books

Thrills & Chills is the book club you’ll want to join if you love a bit of spookiness while reading. It’s led by Jordan, a fan of all types of mystery and thriller novels. Explore the mystery/thriller genre with each read in this chilling but super chill book club.

This month we are reading The Bride Wore White by Amanda Quick. The Thrills & Chills book club will meet at 5:30 PM, on Tuesday, February 20th.

Being Madame Ariadne, Psychic Dream Consultant, wasn’t Prudence Ryland’s ideal gig, but it paid well which was reason enough to do the work—until she realizes that her latest client intends to kill her. But Prudence, a master at reinvention, finds a new job and home as far away as possible and is finally able to relax—which turns out to be a big mistake. Letting her guard down means being kidnapped and drugged and waking up in a bloodstained wedding dress in the honeymoon suite next to a dead man. With the press outside the hotel, waiting with their cameras and police sirens in the distance, it’s obvious she’s being framed for the man’s murder. Prudence knows who is responsible, but will anyone believe her?

It doesn’t seem likely that rumored crime boss Luther Pell or his associate, Jack Wingate, believe her seemingly outrageous claims of being a target of a ruthless vendetta. In fact, Prudence is convinced that the mysterious Mr. Wingate believes her to be a fraud at best, and at worst: a murderer. And Jack Wingate does seem to be someone intimately familiar with violence, if going by his scarred face and grim expression. So no one is more shocked than Prudence when Jack says he’ll help her. Of course, his ideas for helping her involve using her as the bait for a killer, but Prudence feels oddly safe with Jack protecting her. But who will protect Prudence from her growing fascination with this enigma of a man?

Purchase a copy to read, or grab it from the library, and join us for discussion at Dog-Eared Books at 5:30 PM, on Tuesday, February 20th. This book club is free to anyone who wishes to participate, no registration necessary.
