for aperos and to discuss
The Girl who Fell from the Sky by Simon Mawer.
A fascinating blend of fact and fiction, The Girl Who Fell From the Sky, is both an old-fashioned adventure story and a modern exploration of a young woman's growth into adulthood. There is violence and there is love.
We all agreed to bring a plate of nibbles and several people will be bringing bottles of fizz, or wine, so we can celebrate or commiserate with Pam!
And say goodbye to and toast Evelyn’s new home.
The Garden of Evening Mists we all agreed was a good read, thank you Caroline – and for the lovely ginger cake!

The Chalk Circle Man by Fred Vargas
"THE CHALK CIRCLE MAN is the very welcome first novel of Vargas' Jean-Baptiste Adamsberg series, the eccentric French series featuring an eccentric French policeman who investigates by intuition and instinct, and arrests people against logic. And always gets his man.
Mysterious chalk circles have started to appear on the streets of Paris. Drawn overnight, they contain increasingly bizarre objects: a pigeon's foot, cigarette lighters, a hat, a doll's head. Are they there to draw attention to discarded rubbish? Or does the artist put the items inside the circles? Is it for amusement, or is it for something more sinister? Adamsberg tends towards the latter option, and, being the man he is, keeps a close eye on the newspaper reports, which treat the circles as a silly practical joke. That is, they do until something far more sinister turns up in one of the blue circles: the body of a woman with her throat cut. Adamsberg's instincts are proved right, and he begins digging into the case in earnest. But his crucial question is: is the blue chalk circle man the killer, or is the killer a clever opportunist who has spotted a great moment to muddy some waters?"
Jacky will make a cake!
