39) A Killer Plot by Ellery Adams

The Blurb -

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.

This one is on my list too. But I can tell you, I have read a review on the sequel by someone who reads a lot of cozies, telling that one was the best cozy she has ever read! And coming from her, that means something. And I made me even more eager to try this series.
