Not too many books based in Colorado, so kudos here. The setting is city generic, but there’s nothing off base. I’d like a few more details on the area, the weather.
I love the characters. The main characters are all writers, but different lifestyles and career phases. Loved Charlene’s thought process and occasional carelessness. I want more of the brother.
The dialogue was funny and smooth. Different voices were used. Nothing cookie cutter.
The Pace was great. Lots of clues and red herrings.
The Plot was genius. No giveaways here. The subplots were muted, refreshing in the first of a series.
I wanted everyone and no one to be this killer. And was I surprised at the reveal.
A solid 4 stars.
Charlee wrote a murder mystery. The draft of the book was shared with her writing group. Charlee's agent was murdered using the methods in Charlee's book, which made the situation quite awkward for all concerned (including, of course, the agent).
Becky Clark's humor shines in this entry, and it was a great cozy! I have pre-ordered her second book which will be out in 2019.
I see great things in store for Becky Clark! (You thought I was going to say, "I see dead people," didn't you?)
