Murder by Page One: A Peach Coast Library Mystery
by Olivia Matthews
Murder by Page One has set the Peach Coast Library Mysteries off to a splendid start. The core characters are very engaging and I want to get to know them better . . .
~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book
This is an even-paced read, with a dash of humor, mis-steps, dumpster-diving, and surprises . . . If you’re a fan of Hallmark movies, especially the mysteries, you will enjoy Marvey’s adventures.
~Christa Reads and Writes
Murder By Page One was indeed a page-turner and kept me up reading well into the night. I can’t wait to visit Peach Coast again.
~My Reading Journeys
MURDER BY PAGE ONE is a charming debut mystery that promotes friendship and libraries. I can’t wait to return to Peach Coast for some scrumptious peach cobbler and Marvey’s next mystery.
~Cozy Up With Kathy
Set in a quaint small Southern town, Murder By Page One introduces a spunky sleuth and a community that takes pride in its traditions, gossip, library, bookstore, and coffee shop
~Book Club Librarian
The author is very talented in her description and these descriptions pulled me into the story from the very beginning. The writing style flows smoothly and the book is a quick easy read.
Ms. Matthews does a great job of writing the story . . . Marvey is a good character to have as the sleuth in this series.
~Baroness’ Book Trove
This was a great introduction to a new group of characters and to the town of Peach Cove. The mystery itself comes to a very satisfying conclusion, and you will find a recipe for peach cobbler at the end of the book.
~The Book’s the Thing
Murder By Page One is a charming new cozy mystery with rampant rumors, a departed author, a meddling mother, a determined deputy, and a sleuthing librarian.
~The Avid Reader
Part of that enjoyment, part of the reason I picked up Murder by Page One in the first place, was that Marvey Harris was a librarian. And she read and felt like “one of us”, which made the book even more fun for this librarian to read and enjoy!
This was a fast-paced cozy that kept me turning the pages. This one kept my attention from the very beginning and kept it throughout the book.
~Melina’s Book Blog
I loved Marvey & Jo & Spence and got especially tickled at Marvey’s Southern speak dictionary. Great plot with a host of suspects & not too easy to solve.

After one of her friends becomes a suspect, Marvey sets out to solve the murder mystery. She even convinces Spence, the wealthy and charming newspaper owner, to help.
