Book Description

A serious fall is nearly the death of Anna Hitchcock, Christopher Holmes’s former mentor. He’d like to refuse her plea to take over her annual writing retreat, but he owes her too much to refuse. For his lover, J.X. Moriarity, Kit’s cancellation of their romantic weekend is the death knell for their limping relationship. Snooping around the elegant, snowbound mansion for clues to Anna’s would-be killer, Kit gets the uneasy feeling that the secret may life between the pages of someone’s fictional past. Unfortunately, a clever killer is one step ahead…and this time, J.X. might not ride to his rescue.

My first impression is that the mystery was really good. Maybe the author was distracting me all the time with Kit and JX's relationship, but I didn't get a clue about who was guilty until when Kit himself started to realize it, and I wasn't even sure then. The setting was beautiful. I enjoyed the writing class at the beginning, it was really a way to bring out the secondary characters. I also liked that everyone had a shady past, something to hide or something that could make them suspects. They were not all facts, there was a lot of gossip, so I was just collecting this amount of data throughout the book and I felt I was really looking into Kit's mind. I enjoyed the story very much, because I felt was playing along with Kit and JX.

I love Kit. He doesn't hide what he's thinking from the readers, even when he recognizes his behaviour is not rational. He is self-absorbed (and everyone keeps reminding him of that), but he's not selfish. He cares for his self-preservation and he tries to protect himself from additional heartaches. The way he was hurt by his ex-lover comes through, not in Kit's conscious statements but between the lines, in the occasional asides. He admits he doesn't know if he can trust someone again, if he can endure the doubts and the straining of a relationship, but the way he was hurt is something so deep that it has become part of himself. I had not realized it in the first book of the series Somebody Killed His Editor: Holmes & Moriarity, Book 1.

I think Kit grows up in this book. At one point he makes the conscious effort to acknowledge someone else's feelings and you can really feel he is changing.

Okay, I admit it - I'm a series ho. I love a well-written series that shows a progression of emotional growth and realistic setbacks between engaging characters. I love a series that grabs me so tightly that I can't put the current book down and I can't wait for the next installment. This series has me folks - I'm a goner.

While the mystery is a page-turner the thing that grabbed me was the personal development between Kit and J.X. Because this is a series, Josh has the leisure to explore their relationship - the stops, the starts, the push and pull that exists between two people who are are different places and trying to come together in sync. This was real and caught my heart as well as the mystery caught my mind. Wrap all this up with the trademark Lanyon witty dialogue and you've got yourself a winner.

Well done.

Being a huge Lanyon fan I was expecting a fantastic read and Josh didn't disappoint!
Humor, literary references, an entertaining portrayal of authors and publishing, and another brilliant cast of supporting characters made this FUN mystery become the newest addition to my list of JL favorites.

Josh's characters made me feel so intensely that once in a while I think I became Kit. (Other times I sure WISHED that I could be Kit!) The relationship and the romance will bring me back to reread this one again and again!
Already looking forward to Holmes and Moriarity, Book 3.

A very strong 2nd book for the Holmes and Moriarity series. Readers are served with a top-notch mystery, and getting to know the characters of the series in a much deeper level. The relationship part is also developing nicely... err... with enough frustrations and conflicts to keep readers on their toes.

The mysteries in this series are quite different from the much loved Adrien English series, they are more related to the protagonist's personal life and career, rather than "being at the wrong place at the wrong time", and with a classic mystery setting. I always enjoy Lanyon's mystery part of his stories, but this series have my favourites. In "All She Wrote", it's hard to put down, the classic "several suspects all in one big room" setting is evergreen and Lanyon plays it just right. I guessed the motive correctly, but I still couldn't figure out who did it, until it dawns on Kit. Or, I'm so invested in the story, I'm fooled by that person as much as Kit did.

Character-wise, I can see some (probably younger) readers might have problem with Kit's insecurity and self deprecating tone. But personally, I find it almost scary how much I identify with his inner conflicts (getting middle-aged, checked; younger partner, checked; fading career, checked), Kit doesn't sound bitter to me, he sounds as scared as anyone who's been burned (even though he takes some responsibility of it) and is afraid to "give" or "need" anyone on such level again. Bless J.X., he is gonna have to be very patient with Kit. This also set up for more challenge for their relationship in future instalments, I'm very much looking forward to them.

Once I start a Josh Lanyon's book, I can't put it down until I reach the last page and this one is no exception. Josh's writing is just a notch above the others in this genre. Is the mystery angle a little weak as Sirius says? I guess so if one judges it by how fast we could identify the villain. But I feel this is Josh's intention. As it is voiced during the writer's group discussion headed by Kit: the plot is not new but it is the way the writer executes it and the credibility of the characters which makes the difference. And this is how I feel about "All she wrote". Also I did not guess the villain until after the second murder. On second thought the answer is only obvious after Kit's dissection and I enjoy solving the case with him :).
Josh's writing just flows and it is so easy to be caught up in Kit's narration which is fun and humorous. Kit is one endearing character with his insecurity, vulnerability, self preservation and self deprecating mode. J.X. come across almost perfect in Book 1 which makes him rather ordinary. So it is nice to "feel" more of this character in Book 2 and see his insecurity as he struggles to reach out to Kit. I really enjoy their developing relationship in Book 2 and that sex scene when Kit finally "allows it" is sensual and loving. OK so this couple could never replace Adrien and Jake but I could become addicted to their adventures too. More please!

All She Wrote--in paperback?
Hi TB, I still love print books too, so you're not alone in that -- although I believe I'm about to break down and buy my first ebook reader (and it's likely to be a Kindle).

Anyway, in answer to your question, yes. ASW will be in print in 9 - 11 months. I know that's probably not your... Read More
