Join us for our Adult Book Discussion on December 16, at 7:00 pm! We're reading The Christmas Thief by Mary Higgins Clark.
Before scam artist Packy Noonan went to prison for scamming people, he hid his stolen stash in a tree in Vermont, and now has returned to retrieve it. He is horrified to learn that the tree is heading to Rockefeller Center where it will be the Christmas Tree. Also in Vermont is Opal Fogarty, one of his victims, and her friend Alvirah Meehan, amateur sleuth. As the two are inevitably brought together, we wonder if Opal will get her money back and whether Packy will steal away with his ill gotten gains. Throw in Maria VonTrapp of Sound of Music fame, and you have a light-hearted holiday romp, complete with quirky characters, a fun book to read "while the cookies are baking...or one you pick up once the guests leave and you just want to unwind."
