Saturday, April 7 at 10:30 AM – Treasure Hunt by John Lescroart- Conference Room
Summary from Goodreads: “Mickey Dade hates deskwork, but that’s all he’s been doing at Wyatt Hunt’s private investigative service, The Hunt Club. His itch to be active is answered when a body is discovered: It’s Dominic Como, one of San Francisco’s most high-profile activists-a charismatic man known as much for his expensive suits as his work on a half dozen nonprofit boards. One “person of interest” in the case is Como’s business associate, Alicia Thorpe-young, gorgeous, and the sister of one of Mickey’s friends.
“As Mickey and Hunt are pulled into the case, they soon learn that the city’s golden fundraiser was involved in some highly suspect deals. And the lovely Alicia knows more about this-and more about Como-than she’s letting on.”

Saturday, April 28 at 10:30 AM – The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffmann – Reading Room
Summary from Goodreads: “For the Owens family, love is a curse that began in 1620, when Maria Owens was charged with witchery for loving the wrong man.
“Hundreds of years later, in New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change, Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. Difficult Franny, with skin as pale as milk and blood red hair, shy and beautiful Jet, who can read other people’s thoughts, and charismatic Vincent, who began looking for trouble on the day he could walk.
“From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly, never, ever, fall in love. But when her children visit their Aunt Isabelle, in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are. Back in New York City each begins a risky journey as they try to escape the family curse.”
