Mysteries & More celebrates 5th anniversary with very special books-related events

ImageLater this week, Mysteries & More—the wonderful little bookstore in Lenox Village that is one of only two mystery bookstores in the South—will blow out five candles on its birthday cake. To celebrate this achievement, store owners Mary and Greg Bruss are throwing two big author-signing parties . . . and everyone is invited!

Birthday Party #1:

On Saturday, March 30th, from 2 – 4 p.m., Agatha Award nominee Laura Bradford will discuss and sign Assaulted Pretzel, the second book in her Amish mystery series.  There will be birthday cake, assorted beverages, and snacks, along with some special sales and valuable drawings.

Birthday Party #2:

On Thursday, April 4th, from 6:30 – 8:00 pm, the husband-and-wife team of Joyce and Jim Lavene from North Carolina drop by Mysteries & More.  These nationally bestselling authors have written more than thirty mysteries in seven different series.  They will discuss and sign the first book in their new Sweet Pepper fire-brigade mystery series, written under the pseudonym of J. J. Cook and entitled That Old Flame of Mine.

To satisfy evening hunger pangs, the bookstore will offer wine and hors d’oeuvres, plus other refreshments and snacks.

Editor’s Note: Our exclusive ‘Underground Nashville’ interview with Mysteries & More owners Mary and Greg Bruss will appear later this week.
