Recommended Reads author Wendy Kendall passed along this tip for those who enjoy murder mysteries:
In the town of Langley, on Whidbey Island, for 33 years there has been a murder mystery at the end of February. The whole town participates, and they invite visitors to join in as well. You’re invited to sleuth for yourself on Feb. 25 or 26, and see if you can find the guilty character.
These plots, and the fun and humor surrounding these mysteries, have been created and spearheaded for the last 17 years by Loretta Martin, The Mystery Woman. Residents volunteer for roles and in other ways to help bring the story to life for a weekend.
