Calamity at the Continental Club
by Colleen J. Shogan
This was an interesting and fascinating book…It felt a lot like Agatha Christie’s mysteries.
I totally enjoyed Calamity at the Continental Club it was a well written ‘who dun it’.
~My Reading Journeys
Each story in this series tops the last, all 3 are great reads. As before Colleen Shogan’s knowledge of D.C. shines brightly in this story and again I didn’t want the story to end even though I loved the ending.
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
As with the first two books in this series, CALAMITY AT THE CONTINENTAL CLUB is a brilliant mystery. Author Shogan knows how to hold her readers’ attention that’s for certain.
~Lisa Ks Book Reviews
With a mystery that doesn’t stop, enjoyable characters, and the perfect setting, Calamity at the Continental Club is just the book to get lost in for a few hours. Once you start reading it, you won’t want to put it down.
Mystery and history can go together like peanut butter and jelly in this suspenseful mystery. Calamity at the Continental Club was a mixture of mystery and a great reminder of the beauty in D.C.
Calamity at the Continental Club (Washington Whodunit)
3rd in Series
Camel Press (July 1, 2017)
Paperback: 272 pages
The Mayflower Society is about to hold its annual meeting at Washington D.C.’s swanky gathering place for the elite, the Continental Club. That means Kit Marshall’s upper-crust future in-laws, Buffy and Winston Hollingsworth, are coming for a visit. Annoyed that Kit has not set a date to marry Doug, Buffy wants her to commit to a high society wedding at the club. Kit, though chief of staff for a congresswoman, feels uncomfortable with Buffy and Winston’s crowd.
Kit receives an unexpected reprieve in the form of murder. En route to her morning jog, she encounters the corpse of the leader of the Mayflower Society, conservative multimedia tycoon Grayson Bancroft. On the security cameras, no one was seen entering or leaving the club, which means the culprit had to be an overnight guest. Little love was lost on Bancroft, but the police have their prime suspect: Doug’s father.
Buffy and Winston, formerly disdainful of Kit’s sleuthing, urge her to investigate. With her future in-laws’ freedom and reputations at stake, Kit sets out once again to solve a murder mystery, this time aided by her fiancé Doug in addition to her friends Meg and Trevor and her dog Clarence. Her search for clues will take her from the club to the Smithsonian Museum, the National Archives, and Mount Vernon.
Book 3 of the Washington Whodunit series, which began with Stabbing in the Senate and continued with Homicide in the House.

I used to live and work in D.C., so I love reading anything that takes place there!
I really enjoyed the description of the book and that it takes place in Washington DC. Sounds like a great read.
