Published December 4th 2012 by BerkleyWhile shopping at the Book Bin, Ashton Corners book-club member, Lizzie Turner, is introduced to author, Derek Alton, and is strong-armed into having Derek speak at the next book club meeting. Unfortunately, he is murdered ( in Lizzie's house, no less!) prior to the meeting. Not giving any spoiler as to why he was there in the first place. The police chief and the book club wonder if Lizzie was the intended victim but that idea is quickly scrapped when more facts come to light. Lizzie and the book club members try to figure out who was out to eliminate Derek and why.
I really like this series on many levels; the characters are diverse and very likeable, the mystery is well plotted with enough suspects and credible motives
to keep the reader guessing. Just the way I like cozies! Although this is the second book in the series, it can stand alone easily. 4****
