Amy-Faye Johnson’s book club, the Readaholics, enjoys guessing whodunit in mysteries like The Maltese Falcon. But when a murder happens in their midst, they discover that solving crimes is harder that reading about them…
Amy-Faye has always loved her idyllic Rocky Mountain town of Heaven, Colorado. Her event-planning business is thriving, her fellow book-obsessed Readaholics are great, and her parents live only a few blocks away. But lately her hometown has felt a little less heavenly. First, she agrees to plan a wedding without realizing the groom is her ex-boyfriend. Then, Ivy, one of her fellow Readaholics, dies suddenly under mysterious circumstances.
The police rule Ivy’s death a suicide by poisoning, but Amy-Faye and the remaining Readaholics suspect foul play. Amy-Faye soon discovers that Ivy was hiding dangerous secrets—and making deadly enemies. Taking a page from her favorite literary sleuths, Amy-Faye is determined to find the real killer and close the book on this case. But finding the truth could spell her own ending…
A Great start to a New series!
Love the ladies of the Readaholics group. And the fact that they are a reader’s group that read mainly crime/mystery books…just like we do.
Laura has created a great set of characters. Amy-Faye, the organiser. Maud, the conspiracy theorist. Lola, the plant nursery/florist. Brooke, married money and animal shelter volunteer. Kerry, a realtor and part-time Heaven’s Mayor. And the late Ivy.
A well plotted and written novel.
