Sisters in Crime Group Signing

Looking for trouble? Head over to today’s Sisters in Crime reading and signing. Mystery novelist Susan Rogers Cooper will read spine-tingling tales of ne’er-do-well Texans and Okies from two of her newest books, Romanced to Death and Shotgun Wedding. If the latter sounds like something straight out of a small Texas town, that might be because it is. Shotgun Wedding tells the story of what happens when a wedding, a murder, some psychotic pirates and a few nekkid hotel employees collide. Cooper is a self-described “half fifth-generation Texan, half Yankee” and loves setting her blood-soaked tales of small-town outlaws and sheriffs in the Lone Star State and neighboring Oklahoma. The other Sisters in Crime, Betty Gordon, Nancy Glass West and Rosemary Poole-Carter, will also be on hand for readings and signings. 5 p.m. Murder by the Book, 2342 Bissonnet. For information, call 713-524-8597 or visit www.murderbooks.com. Free.
