The Mystery Hour at Baldwin Boettcher

January is fast approaching.  This is the time when many people make the  move to visit or spend some time in Florida.  So for this month we will be investigating books that have a mystery set in Florida.  The Doc Ford character by White and the Rick Riordan books have made the suggestion list if you don't want to search for one of your own.  Come join us for our wonderful trip to Florida.  We will meet on the 19th of January at 2 pm.  Bring your book and let's discuss where your book took you within the State of Florida.  See you next year.
