The Mystery A Month Book group started in 2009 at Thompson Park Activity Center in West St. Paul. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 10:30-11:30 am and all are welcome. Discussions are lead in rotation by whomever has selected the title of the month. The group reads current and classic mystery and suspense novels. We love Minnesota authors and also read a great selection of bestselling authors. We do not meet in December.
