Had two locations that were a lot of fun. First up, was the Murder and Tea Book Club hosting an event at the kitschy Tam O'Shanter in Los Angeles. It's one of those Disneyesque fake Tudors that's supposed to be a Scottish Inn (actually Jacobean) with delightful little rooms with lots of cozy chairs and amusing items on the walls.
Books and bags were available for sale.
And the lovely group that was happy to talk murder as we consumed our prime rib and cocktails.
Next up was the San Diego independent bookstore Mysterious Galaxy. Do give it a try when you are in the area. It's chock full of mystery, fantasy, and sci fi books.
