39) A Killer Plot by Ellery Adams
Olivia Limoges is the subject of constant gossip. Ever since she came back to town-a return as mysterious as her departure-Olivia has kept to herself, her dog, and her unfinished novel. With a little cajoling from the eminently charming writer Camden Ford, she agrees to join the Bayside Book Writers, break her writer's block, and even make a few friends...
But when towns people start turning up dead with haiku poems left by the bodies, anyone with a flair for language is suddenly suspect. And it's up to Olivia to catch the killer before she meets her own surprise ending.
My Thoughts -
I love a nice cozy mystery to curl up with in the evenings and this one has been on my to be read pile for a while. Nothing paranormal about this one but it was still a great read. Well thought out plot, a exceptional cast of characters and a nice quirky leading lady.
For the first in a series this was well written and had a lot of depth to it. After looking to see if and when a sequel is coming I found that the author isn't new to writing Cozy's and obviously knows what she is doing. On saying that, I don't see myself trying any of her other books even if I did like this one quite a bit. They just don't appeal to me as much as this one did. Maybe it has something to do with the Book Writers club...
However I am definitely going to put the second book in this series on my wishlist and maybe one day I will even get a copy! I really found this one interesting and I am really curious to see what will happen in Oyster Bay next, what happens in the Bayside Book Writers club and if Olivia starts a relationship with either of the two men she took a fancy too.
