Broadway Book Club

TThe Book Club will meet to discuss "Tradition of Deceit (A Chloe Ellefson Mystery)" by Kathleen Ernst on Sunday, October 22nd after worship and community hour. 

The following is a description from the back cover:

"Curator and occasional sleuth Chloe Ellefson is off to Minneapolis to help her friend Ariel with a monumental task. Ariel must write a proposal for a controversial and expensive restoration project: convert an abandoned flour mill, currently used as shelter by homeless people, into a museum. When a dead body is found stuffed into a grain chute, Chloe's attention turns from milling to murder.

Back in Milwaukee, Chloe's love interest Roelke has been slammed with the news that a fellow officer was shot and killed while on duty. Sifting through clues from both past and present, Chloe and Roelke discover dangerous secrets that put their lives―and their trust in each other―at risk."

All are welcome to join! Simply read the book on your own time and come ready to discuss!
