Perhaps the most famous and popular of the Sherlock Holmes mysteries, this gripping tale deals with the curse of the Baskerville family-and the fiendish killer-hound which stalks its members.

3.   Perfect Wedding by Robin Hawdon (June 2, 2017 through June 25, 2017)

A bridegroom wakes on his wedding morning in his own bridal suite, with his bride-to-be about to arrive any moment, and finds a strange girl in bed beside him. What's more an extremely attractive girl whom, in the depths of his post stag-night hangover, he can't remotely remember even having been introduced to. Worse - during the ensuing panic to get the stranger dressed and out of the way, the bride arrives and the girl is trapped in the bathroom. The only way out of the dilemma is to persuade the best man to pretend that the hidden girl is his girl friend. Then the problem is that the best man's real girl friend has to be kept ignorant of the fact. By the time the bride's parents and half the hotel staff get in on the act, the chaos reaches nuclear proportions!

A middle aged man and woman who have just ended a voyage are sitting in a hotel lobby declaring their platonic affection for one another-- or demurring, as the game proceeds. Each is horrified to learn that the other is not widowed, but still married. Nevertheless, it can't be helped, so madly do they regard one another. Whereupon, enter their spouses, who have a similar regard for one another. What had been a game of singles, is now a game of doubles. The one woman likes to be loved, and the other is bored by love but amused by lovers.
