Mystery Cozy

From the New York Times bestselling author of Writing All Wrongs, it’s a rotten state of affairs in Oyster Bay, and the Bayside Book Writers are out to end a nasty plot...

Restaurant owner and aspiring novelist Olivia Limoges is happily enjoying her new marriage. Sadly, the same doesn’t hold true for Laurel, a fellow Bayside Book Writer. While struggling with a demanding job, twin boys, and a terminally ill mother-in-law, Laurel learns that her perfect marriage is mostly fictional. When she catches her husband fooling around with his mother’s hospice nurse, she issues impassioned threats that will later come back to haunt her.

After the nurse meets a deadly denouement, Chief Rawlings is forced to take Laurel into custody. While Olivia protests the arrest, the rest of the Bayside Book Writers become a group divided, with Rawlings and Harris on one side and Olivia and Millay on the other. Now the women must race against the clock to prove that Laurel’s not the sort for murder before her story ends in tragedy…

I don't think I have ever come across a story with main
characters as part of the book writers group. Sounds like

these characters.

I enjoy reading a good mystery. This is just the right type for me to read while curled up in my bed.
Anna Speed 6:52am May 27, 2017)

It is interesting to read how many different jobs the author has done in her life. It has to add to her writing when she has actually done some of the jobs she describes. And most of us can relate to one or more of the experiences.
Mary Songer 5:13pm May 27, 2017)

Love this series but I'm a bit behind. Would love to win the latest - Killer Characters.
