About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
I enjoy cozy mysteries. The genre is one I use to completely relax with, enjoy, and when I find an author and series I like, I enjoy following it as new books are published. In many ways, these little books are kind of like comforting friends.
Death on Demand is of course the first book in this particular series and the first book I have read by this author. I note that at last count that the number of novels involved here, i.e. Death of Demand series, numbers 21 at this time. This one was published in 1987 which is a pretty good indication that the author most certainly has staying power. More about that later...
This story takes place on a small and isolated island off of the South Carolina coast...in a small village. The setting is a books shop which specializes in mysteries. The shop is owned and operated by our heroine, Anne Lawrence and the name of the shop is "Death on Demand," thus the title for the book and series.
In this first novel, Annie becomes the key suspect for the murder of a mystery writer connected with her shop and a group of other writers who meet at her store periodically. Annie is in a mess but in solving the murder and in clearing her name, she has the help of her old and ex, filthy rich boy friend/lover/and I don't know what all. Max Darling.
Now please keep in mind that this is a first novel of a new series. I will not tell you that it is not without its problems.Read more ›
