The Readaholics and the Gothic Gala
The Readaholics and the Gothic Gala | Laura DiSilverio
14 posts | 2 read | 6 to read
One sleuthing book club finds themselves in the midst of a gothic-esque mystery as they read Du Mauriers Rebecca in the latest from the author of The Readaholics and the Poirot Puzzle. Reading the gothic classic Rebecca already has the Readaholics spooked, and the chills only get worse when someone in town actually gives up the ghost.... Amy-Faye Johnson has her hands full coordinating the Celebration of Gothic Novels in Heaven, Colorado. The festivities start off smoothly, but the weekend is soon cursed with large egos, old resentments, and uninvited guests. Matters become truly grave when a dead body is found at the gothic-themed costume party. The out-of-town authors claim not to know the victim, but Amy-Faye has doubts. With skeletons turning up in all of the suspects closets, Amy-Faye and the Readaholics must tap into their knowledge of gothic literature to find a killer who lurks in the shadows...

I‘ll be taking part in the Halloween weekend edition of #20in4 hosted by @Andrew65 ! I hate Mondays, so I‘m choosing to participate starting Thursday, Oct. 28 thru Sunday, Oct. 31.

All are welcome to participate and post what you‘ve read. Do it! It‘s fun! 😃

I actually finished a book last night and haven‘t really started anything new yet. 😱 🥳 THE SKY IS THE LIMIT! 🚀 I think my goal will be to start and complete one book by Sunday.

Andrew65 Good luck 😊👍 3mo

CBee How are you and your wife feeling? @Andrew65 3mo
Andrew65 @CBee Much better than we were. Both about 7 1/2 weeks since first symptoms. She still has a cough and me a residual ear infection. Other than that it just leads to us having lower energy and getting tired much more quickly. Although has made her knee much worse and my IBS and Stomach issues worse bizarrely. Thanks for asking 😍 Hope you are well. 3mo

My stack for #24in48 and a partial view of my Airbnb, which is thankfully air-conditioned. This time around, I will be donating a nickel for every page read to Yoga Behind Bars, a wonderful organization that offers yoga instruction to incarcerated people to help them transform their lives.
