February Murder Mystery:
Love Writes a Deadly Verse – February 15th, 5:30 PM
Love is in the air at the Valentine’s Day meeting of The Poets Turntable as this group of amateur and professional writers focuses on amore, liebe – yes, LOVE! Romance abounds when each member rises, in turn, to thrill the audience with similes, metaphors and word pictures that make even the coldest hearts beat faster.
But in the midst of this memorable assemblage, one of the poets staggers to the podium and after uttering a few cryptic words, is overtaken by death. Someone has done in a fellow Turntable member in the midst of one of the year’s most sentimental events.
It’s time for poetic justice as everyone gathers to investigate the death and to find the culprit who turned Valentine’s Day into a bad rhyme.

March Murder Mystery:
Murder Most Green – March 14th, 5:30 PM
One hundred years ago, Pader Flaherty arrived in town and built a greenhouse to grow plants that were popular in his native Ireland. Through the years, operations expanded and, ten years ago, Pader’s grandson Patrick became majority owner of a business that is still family-run. Today, Flaherty’s True Green Plant Nursery is a major producer of shamrocks, supplying the entire state with the plant, especially for “the wearin’ of the green.” Although rumors persist that family members have been at odds with each other for years, the family has maintained an outward calm, denying all rumors of a rift.
Last night, family, the nursery staff, and the nursery’s best customer gathered at the Blarney Inn to celebrate the nursery’s 100th anniversary of operation. Patrick Flaherty was the center of attention as the nursery’s milestone was toasted. He was supposed to spend the night at the Inn with members of his family but, this morning, his body was found in the pond at the rear of the nursery.
Tonight was to have been another party – this one celebrating St. Patrick’s Day, with Patrick in attendance as the honored guest. Instead, it will be Patrick’s wake.
