First, the narration is outstanding. The narrator has a beautiful voice, a great mix of vocalizations, and good pacing. She perfectly captured the personality of the characters and the humor within the story. Grade = A+
Second, the story itself was excellent. The mystery takes place at a writer's convention in the heat of St. Petersburg, Florida. The main character, Viola, single and a 42 yr old writer of historical romance novels, discovers the victim and feels compelled to figure out what happened, especially after losing confidence in the lead detective (a handsome man, but mediocre and prickly investigator).
From there, a small group of writers forms to try to solve the mystery.
The story flows well and doesn't meander. It has some great humor, a budding romance, and a great ending. There is no graphic sex, violence, or foul language. Grade = A
Viola is a historical romance author and she and her friend are on vacation/attending a writers conference. While they are there one of the writers is murdered. She wasn't the nicest so there are plenty of suspects.
Viola is the one that found the body and her friend had a bit of a cat fight with the lady earlier so they are both on the detectives suspect list. This prompts Viola to decide to find out who the killer is on her own, landing her in trouble a few times.
She also meets hunky mystery/thriller writer Lucas Salvatore and she has no clue why he wants to hang out with her but she ends up bring him in on the hunt for a killer.
As she tries to find out who the murder is someone is out to murder her so she best figure out whodonit before she becomes the next victim.
Okay so this was a fun read but it was a bit cheesy at sometimes but I think that is what made it so quirky and fun. It has a good mystery and kept you guessing.
Viola was interesting to say the least, she writes historical romance books about hunky cowboys and she is a little out there. She was just funny.
I thought the author kind of poked fun at romance authors and it did make me laugh a bit. Overall I really laughed a lot at this fun short read. I will probably be on the look out for the next book in this series to see what other trouble Viola can get into.
This is a mystery with humor added. Viola is a much less formal version of Jessica Fletcher. I started this book this morning and finished it just before supper. For those who do not like sex in their stories, relax. There is none. It is just pure story, and I really like that.
