Mystery Gifts, a novella by Denise Thompson-Slaughter, 121 pages, paperback, $14. Available on Lulu.com and soon thereafter, Amazon, BN.com, and through Ingram global distributors.
A ‘cozy’ mystery set on the beautiful shores of Nova Scotia, Mystery Gifts draws on the colorful culture and people of the southwestern coast of that Canadian province. The cast of characters includes a range of people from different cultures and religions who work together to solve a mystery uncovered by bored US visitors when five days of their vacation are rained out. The backgrounds of the characters contribute to their unique methods, as do the surprising and unusual ‘gifts’ three of the women involved wish they didn’t have. There is also a touch of magical realism – in the form of seagulls.
A perfect book for book clubs, Mystery Gifts includes questions for discussion, a recipe for raspberry crumble, and seagull sketches.
