A Story to Kill
by Lynn Cahoon

There is everything you could want in a cozy mystery, an intriguing mystery with a sub-plot mystery that leaves a cliffhanger at the end of the book, a wonderful and realistic cast of characters, enough backstory to endear you to the character’s lives, and even some romance.
~Classy Cheapskate

If you are looking for a great start to a new series … and who doesn’t love being in on the story from the beginning … you will not go wrong with Cahoon’s A Story to Kill.

The story will keep you guessing and just when you think you MIGHT know who it is…a twist comes into play and you are off guessing again.

Ms. Cahoon does an excellent job setting the stage for her characters right from the start.

If you like a well plotted mystery with well developed characters that will give you a peek into the writer’s world (both seasoned and beginning writers), I strongly recommend you add this one to your reading list.

There are plenty of twists and turns in A Story to Kill to keep the reader enthralled. I am looking forward to more books in The Cat Latimer Mystery series.

This has everything a cozy mystery lover requires…
~FUONLYKNEW – Laura’s Ramblins and Reviews

The story is very well written, as are all of Ms. Cahoon’s books. She will keep you guessing as to who the killer really was, and why they committed the crime.

Layers of depth and well defined characters prepare us for a fascinating new series
~Laura’s Interests

Lynn Cahoon is one of my go-to authors in the cozy mystery genre …he has a knack for creating settings that appeal directly to my book nerd heart so it’s easy to immerse myself in the story…
~Reading Is My SuperPower

I love the setting of the story~a B&B with writers’ retreats is the perfect setting. Cat is an interesting character and I look forward to seeing her develop throughout this series (which I’m hoping is long ? ).
~Brooke Blogs

Like any book by Lynn Cahoon it is well written, with a clever and well-woven plot that will keep the reader attached to the pages until the end to find the culprit.


A Story to Kill (A Cat Latimer Mystery)
Cozy Mystery
New Series
Mass Market Paperback: 320 pages
Publisher: Kensington (August 30, 2016)

E-Book ASIN: B0190HGVK6


Former English professor Cat Latimer is back in Colorado, hosting writers’ retreats in the big blue Victorian she’s inherited, much to her surprise, from none other than her carousing ex-husband! Now it’s an authors’ getaway—but Cat won’t let anyone get away with murder…
The bed-and-breakfast is open for business, and bestselling author Tom Cook is among its first guests. Cat doesn’t know why he came all the way from New York, but she’s glad to have him among the quirkier—and far less famous—attendees.

Cat’s high school sweetheart Seth, who’s fixing up the weathered home, brings on mixed emotions for Cat…some of them a little overpowering. But it’s her uncle, the local police chief, whom she’ll call for help when there’s a surprise ending for Tom Cook in his cozy guest room. Will a killer have the last word on the new life Cat has barely begun?



New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, Lynn Cahoon is an Idaho native. If you’d visit the town where she grew up, you’d understand why her mysteries and romance novels focus around the depth and experience of small town life. Currently, she’s living in a small historic town on the banks of the Mississippi river where her imagination tends to wander. She lives with her husband and two fur babies.
