Local Author to speak at Book Review Luncheon

Donna Welch Jones

Donna Welch Jones will discuss her latest book, “Beautiful Bait,” at the Book Review Luncheon scheduled for noon on Oct. 9 at the Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library meeting room, 101 E. Cherokee.

Jones’ latest book is set in Sequoyah County. “I chose Sequoyah County because I am familiar with the location. I worked at the Sequoyah County Health Department for eight years. My daughters, Amy and Kim, are graduates of Sallisaw High School. Currently, I have two grandsons enrolled in Muldrow Public Schools.”

“Beautiful Bait” tells the story of Jacie, a teenage runaway, who finds herself in Sequoyah County being paid to deliver homeless men to an isolated location. When Jacie comes to the realization that her boss is a murderer, he threatens to kill her or tell police she is a co-conspirator. Jacie is faced with the ultimate decision: death, jail or keeping the killer’s secret.

Jones is also the author of the Sheriff Lexie Wolfe Mystery Series and Unbreak Their Hearts. 

She has won awards in the Writer’s Digest Writing Competition and is a member of the Tulsa Nightwrighters, the Oklahoma Writers Confederation Inc. and Mystery Writers of America. 

A free lunch will be provided during the book discussion. To reserve a place, contact the library at (918) 775-4481. 

Stanley Tubbs Memorial Library is part of the Eastern Oklahoma District Library System.
