Review: A killer Plot – Ellery Adams

In the small coastal town of Oyster Bay, North Carolina, you’ll find plenty of characters, ne’er-do-wells, and even a few celebs trying to duck the paparazzi. But when murder joins this curious community, the Bayside Book Writers are there to get the story… 

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 townspeople 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:
My second cozy mystery. Look at me, I have read 2 πŸ˜€ This one I liked a bit more, but that was cos in this one the main character was not accused of murder. That just makes me sad…
We had a more mature main character…ok 40 but I am used to reading about much younger ones. She was sure of her self, she loved her dog and she wanted to find out who the killer was. Still this did not make her TSTL. She was careful after all and talked to the cops a lot.
I hoped for a bit of romance and yes there is something there in the shadows but I do wonder….
The mystery was good cos even in the end I was all “…what? Aha…ok I get it.”
Conclusion:
A nice cozy mystery
Would I read more?
Yes

    I'm glad to hear she's not TSTL and talks to the cops about what's going on! It always frustrates me when characters try to handle certain things on their own. Sounds like a fun book!!!

    Ooohhhh…you read a cozy! You know how I love them – yes, even when the main character drives me crazy with risking her life and doing stupid things πŸ™‚ I have this one on my Kindle but I haven't read it yet. I'm glad you liked this and I love that the heroine is a bit older. I get tired of the 20something types.
