The series of “Chocoholic Mysteries” by author JoAnna Carl will be the topic at the Monday, March 31 meeting of the Royalton Hartland Community Library Book Club. The group will meet at 7 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room at the library, 9 Vernon Street in Middleport.

This month’s reading selections are written by JoAnna Carl who is also known by her alternate pen name Eve K. Sandstrom. She worked for more than twenty-five years as a reporter, editor, and columnist at an Oklahoma newspaper, and retired to write fiction full-time.

Carl’s Chocoholic Mystery stories feature Lee McKinney, a beauty queen from Texas who is employed by a chocolate making business run by her Aunt in Michigan. The stories are covered with candy innuendos and each one includes a bit of “chocolate lore” in them as well, making her a much loved author. 

The Royalton Hartland Community Library Book Club meets monthly to discuss a wide selection of literary works, and members welcome both a variety of opinions and new members.

Anyone interested is invited to attend this month’s meeting, or any of the future meetings at the library. Meeting dates are posted online at or you can call the library at 716-735-3281 with any questions or for more information.
