The Book Club Murders is a home-run debut for me. With action, adventure and murders involving mystery books it is to sure to please every cozy mystery fan!
~The Cozy Mystery Journal
The Book Club Murders is a good mystery with a solid dose of romance.
~The Ninja Librarian
I absolutely loved the mystery-book references and how the author brought in published mystery novels and used them in the murders.
~Nadaness In Motion
The mystery is extremely well-crafted and kept me guessing right up until the very end.
~Reading is My SuperPower
I found the book to have an interesting pace, it was like an adventure ride. Twists and turns, sometimes a quick chapter other times the chapters are full and winding.
Leslie Nagel is a very talented writer and the story is well crafted.
~The power of words . . .
The Book Club Murders is funny, suspenseful and a great whodunnit!
~Teresa Trent – Author
Leslie Nagel’s debut The Book Club murders introduces you to fun new characters and a story line that is filled with plot twists.
~Shelley’s Book Case
Tuck into this well-written and endearing cozy murder mystery, set in an upper-class suburban community where the veneer of civility is thin and verbal encounters are often knife-edged. Class warfare is alive and well, and so is homicide.
~Mallory Heart’s Cozies
This was a really fun cozy mystery! …The Agathas are a bunch of interesting rich ladies who all have something they could be hiding.
~Books, Movies, Reviews. Oh my!
I am really looking forward to seeing where this series goes, as the community, especially the book club, takes a substantial hit before the case is solved. The characters have so much potential.
The premise for this story is great, the plot is well-developed, and I can’t wait to get to know the characters better as the series continues. I had no idea who the murder was until the moment of the reveal, which is just the way I love it.
I always enjoy getting in on the ground floor of a new series and this one gets off to a great start. As soon as I saw this series involved a mystery book club, I knew I would have fun with it and I did.
~Socrates’ Book Reviews…
This was a quick-paced mystery with lots of personalities and red herrings…Once the story got going, I didn’t want to put the book down.
~Christa Reads and Writes
…i liked that the book club read only mysteries in tribute to Agatha Christie since that is my favorite genre.
Great debut for this new series, a perfect mystery for those who love books, I would love to be part of Agathas Book Club.
The Book Club Murders: The Oakwood Mystery Series
Publisher: Alibi (September 27, 2016)
E-Book ASIN: B01A4ATX9E
In a charming cozy mystery series debut, Leslie Nagel’s irrepressible small-town heroine finds that her fellow mystery book club members may be taking their Agatha Christie a bit too literally—and murder a bit too lightly.
Charley Carpenter has poured heart and soul into her clothing store, Old Hat Vintage Fashions. She’ll do anything to make it a success—even join the stuffy Agathas Book Club in order to cultivate customers among the wealthy elite of Oakwood, Ohio.
Although mixing with the most influential women in town has its advantages, Charley finds the endless gossip a high price to pay. But after two women with close ties to the Agathas are brutally murdered, everyone falls under threat—and suspicion. When key evidence indicates that both murders are the work of the same hand, Charley realizes that the killer has arranged each corpse in perfect imitation of crime scenes from the Club’s murder mystery reading list. She uses her membership in the Club to convince Detective Marcus Trenault to use her as an inside informant. Not that he could stop her anyway.
Intelligent, fearless, and every bit as stubborn as Marc is, Charley soon learns the Agathas aren’t the only ones with secrets to protect. Passions explode as she and Marc must race against time to prevent another murder. And if Charley’s not careful, she may find herself becoming the killer’s next plot twist.
