Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

BookLikes-opoly: Turn 20 (June 5th)

 

I was starting to get grumpy about the way it felt like I kept landing on the same spots every time I went around the board, so in a perfect be-careful-what-you-wish-for move, I've landed on:

 

Well, it's definitely a space I haven't landed on before.   Thank goodness for cozies; say what you want about them, you can pretty much count on them to fit almost any category.

 

I found 3 possibilities and after submitting them to Easter-cat, who ignored me, I asked Carlito (everyone talks to their cats, right?) to choose the book and he chose Writing All Wrongs by Ellery Adams. (I put the books on the table and he circled them, then sat in front of the Adams book and started meowing at me in a tone that I could only assume was a judgment on my poor reading tastes - there's a dog on the cover.)

Writing All Wrongs - Ellery Adams After Olivia and Chief Rawlings enjoy an all too brief honeymoon on Palmetto Island, they’re joined by the rest of the Bayside Book Writers for the Coastal Carolina Crime Festival. The festival’s highlight is Silas Black, celebrity screenwriter and television producer, who is currently working on a popular television show in North Carolina.

As the festival gets under way, a prankster seems to be bringing famous local ghost stories to life. But when the body of a woman close to Black is found on the beach, Olivia and her friends must deduce who on the island could resort to murder—before the sands of time run out for someone else…
