The popular Soup and Suspense mystery author program at Vose Library, 392 Common Road, will featured local author Vicki Doudera Thursday, Oct. 3, at 7 p.m.

Doudera will read from and talk about her newest book, “Final Settlement,” the latest in the Darby Farr real estate mystery series, and answer questions from the audience. Real estate agent Darby Farr returns to her Maine hometown for her friend’s wedding, but is soon investigating the suspicious death of the police chief’s assistant and the suspect list keeps getting longer.

Copies of “Final Settlement” will be available at the event for sale and autographing. Attendees will enjoy delicious soups made by library volunteers. The $5 suggested donation includes a Vose Library mug to the soup and to take home at the end of the night.
