Ready for a charming Vermont novella, with just enough darkness and suspense to keep you reading? It's not crime fiction -- but F. D. Reeve's new book NATHANIEL PURPLE is a good read nonetheless, and likely to get multiple readings, too, because it's so satisfying.
If you're in northern Vermont, catch the chance to meet this Bennington-area novelist and prodigious poet and award winner at the St. Johnsbury (VT) Athenaeum at 7 pm on Wednesday April 11. It will be a great way to celebrate National Library Week.
What's that? Where are the mystery reviews? I promise, there are half a dozen on the way. Watch this space tomorrow morning.
