I read this book in one sitting and simply couldn’t put it down. Well done, Ms. Winston!
Later that evening after drinks with Paisley and new friends, Gracie decides to take the stairs instead of the crowded elevator. She decides it will do her good to walk some of the calories off she has just swallowed drinking two margaritas. But it didn't prepare her for the Queen of mean author Lovinia Darling's body to come crashing down the stairwell narrowly missing hitting her! Before she can say Detective Vanwhatshisname, Gracie is involved in trying to prove it was a murder (not an accident from a broken heel) and find the murderer.
The second of this all too short series has many twists and turns with surprising discoveries about various people at the conference. Her very reluctant husband does go to the visitation for the victim with her, but draws the line at investigating this time around.
The humor is a little lower key in this book, but still there as Gracie bumbles through her decisions about investigating and writing her next book. But true to form, she doesn't give up, but she does prove she has learned a thing or two from her past!
A fun series for people who want a little less graphics with their mystery. It is nice to read about more refined characters who are believable and unintentionally entertaining. You will appreciate this book more if you read the series in order,
Excited to have won a prestigious amateur writing contest, sure that it is her ticket to a successful new career, Gracie Elliot finds herself at a writers conference for the Society of American Romance Authors. Simply checking into the hotel, she finds herself star stuck as she recognizes many her favorite authors. It doesn’t take her long though, to figure out that as glamorous as her new career path may have seemed when she imagined it, the reality of infighting and backbiting, makes for some serious drama. When she finds the dead body of an especially not well liked author, it seems there is no shortage of suspects. Reluctantly she begins to investigate the mystery risking the irritation of her gorgeous husband and maybe even damage to her fledgling writing career.
Gracie Elliot is a fun character. She is socially awkward at times and a bit clumsy, yet she runs headlong into the next moment with a gusto that makes her irresistible. Her husband Blake is a perfect foil for her enthusiasm. The story is written with wit and style and even though I had the murderer figured out within pages of finding the body, it was very satisfying to read the pieces of the mystery fall into place. The writing conference, with its range of characters, was the perfect backdrop for the story and it was nearly as fun to learn about the behind-the-scenes of the writing and publishing world as it was to read the book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
