Bookstore owner Arlo and her Friday Night Book Club sleuths are going to have to read between the lines to solve this mystery!

It’s movie time in Sugar Springs and the whole town is pitching together to get the historical Coliseum Theater ready for the event of the year—the premiere of Missing Girl, local author Wally Harrison’s bestselling novel turned film.

Thrilled to bring tourists to Sugar Springs, the town comes together to host the late author’s event. But when a stranger arrives, boasting he has definitive proof that Wally didn’t write Missing Girl…well, drama leaps from the page into real life. Mishaps start taking place around the theater—and then the stranger is discovered dead in his hotel room right before his press conference.

Can Arlo and her Friday night book club to sleuth out the killer and solve the mystery before the town’s Hollywood dreams go up in smoke?

Dollycas’s Thoughts

It has finally arrived! The premiere of Missing Girl based on a book written by local newly deceased (Can’t Judge A Book By Its Murder) author Wally Harrison is taking place in his hometown and everyone is working to make the historic Coliseum Theater red carpet ready. That is until a man arrives in town claiming Harrison didn’t write the book. Soon thereafter Helen (Elly) finds the man dead between the seats in the theater. Of course, the Friday Night Book Club much to Arlo and the Sheriff’s regret butts their noses right into the murder investigation. It is about this time “accidents” start to happen at the theater. One “accident” leaves Arlo injured making it harder to reel in the octogenarian sleuths as they try to catch the killer.

________

First, I must recommend these books be read in order because each builds on things that happened in the previous book. It also helps you understand the relationships of the core characters.

Arlo is a strong main character and she has the patience of a saint. Fern, Camille, and Helen are very active ladies and quite a handful when they get an idea in their heads. Mads also has a bunch of patience but readers will truly understand that it is waning too with the senior sleuths. Also in this story, Sam is dealing with a tough family situation and my heart felt for him. All these characters are well-developed by this third book in the series but feel there is room for growth if there is a fourth book in the works.

The mystery itself is well-plotted and the author drops plenty of clues for a reader that isn’t distracted by all the mayhem caused by Helen, Fern, and Camille. Poor Chloe gets left manning the bookstore/cafe while Arlo works so hard to corral those ladies while trying to help a friend, keep the sheriff happy, and maybe just have a little time for herself. I really enjoyed the  exciting ending and the way all the pieces fell nicely into place.

A Murder Like No Author may bring the Wally Harrison story to an end but I hope that doesn’t mean we won’t be visiting these characters again. I am curious about many facets of Arlo’s life especially if she is going to sort out her romance troubles. I am sure that Friday Night Book Club would have a lot of input for her in that regard.  I am also sure there could be another murder afoot in sweet Sugar Springs. I definitely wouldn’t say “no” to another visit to Arlo and Chloe’s Books & More.

Amy Lillard has penned another very entertaining read.

A Murder Between the Pages: A Book Shop Cozy Mystery (Main Street Book Club Mysteries) by Amy Lillard #Review @PPPress @AmyWritesRomance

I apologize for my delay in posting this review.

A Murder Between the Pages: A Book Shop Cozy Mystery
(Main Street Book Club Mysteries)

Cozy Mystery
2nd in Series
Setting – Mississippi
Poisoned Pen Press (November 24, 2020)
Mass Market Paperback ‏ : ‎ 320 pages
ISBN-10 ‏ : ‎ 1492687804
ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-1492687801
Kindle ASIN ‏ : ‎ B0861BGZGR

This murder will have to be solved by the book…

It was only a few months ago that the ladies of Arlo’s Friday Night Book Club—Fern, Camille, and Helen—solved the murder of the renowned author, Wally Harrison. So when they select Wally’s bestseller, Missing Girl, for their next discussion, Arlo is hopeful it will be the end of their mystery hunt.

But since their recent success as sleuths the crew officially see themselves as a women’s mystery club, and they’re convinced Missing Girl was inspired by a 50-year-old cold case. It’s a case from their own Sugar Springs, Mississippi—the disappearance of Mary Kennedy—and Arlo can do little to stop the book club ladies from investigating.

But what starts out as a fun hunch quickly turns into a very real cold case murder mystery when a young girl is murdered in the exact place the women believe Mary went missing all those years ago. It’s clear the two cases are connected—and the mystery book club is determined to find answers. With Arlo’s help, they may just be able to crack the case.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

We return to Arlo and Chloe’s Books & More in this second book in the Main Street Book Club Mysteries where the Friday Night Book Club, which meets each day at noon are discussing Missing Girl by the now-deceased Wally Harrison. (Can’t Judge A Book by Its Murder) The elderly members of the group, Fern, Camille, and Helen, are sure the book was derived from a 50-year-old-case when piano teacher Mary Kennedy went missing after giving a lesson to the son of a wealthy family.

When the ladies travel to the very manor where the disappearance occurred to pick up a book donation they witness another murder. They are convinced the two murders are connected and no matter how hard Arlo tries to direct their attention elsewhere they are intent on investigating both murders come hill or high water.


I will confess when I started this book I stopped to be sure I hadn’t already read it because the young woman’s death was very similar to something I had remembered reading before. I had not read this book and as I got further into it the similarity faded away.

Arlo is a terrific character. Her book club plan did not come together as planned but she rolled with it and accepted that she ended up with Fern, Camille, and Helen. It sure turned out to be a lot more work especially now that the ladies see themselves as amateur sleuths instead of book club members. It tests Arlo’s patience but I enjoyed tagging along to see what kind of mischief they were going to get into much to Arlo’s dismay. Arlo also has man trouble, personally and tangentially. With both Sam and Mads back in her life, she is dealing with old feelings and new. Plus Camille is dating a very interesting man that no one knows anything about. Ms. Lillard has created a wonderful group of characters. They make me laugh and a bit nervous at times but all are characters I want to follow through their adventures.

As I said the new mystery felt familiar but the way the author twisted it to encompass the old cold case caught my interest. While nosing around a certain event got the ladies all twitterpated. They were all in on solving both mysteries. I was nicely entertained by the way the drama all played out. Ms. Lillard threw in some wonderful twists and turns that really muddied my thinking. I really enjoyed the subplot about Chole and her son too.

There is plenty of humor sprinkled through this story including the antics of some spry octogenarians but also from a certain parrot named Faulkner. His quips and one-liners had me in stitches.

A Murder Between the Pages was a delightful trip back to Sugar Springs, Mississippi. I am excited to know I will be returning in just a couple of weeks when I read and review A Murder Like No Author.

Cozy Wednesday – featuring The Enemy You Gnocchi: A Christmas Cozy Mystery (Italian Chef Mysteries) by Catherine Bruns #Review / #Giveaway

Welcome to Cozy Wednesday!

I am so happy to share my thoughts today
about The Enemy You Gnocchi by Catherine Bruns!


The Enemy You Gnocchi: A Christmas Cozy Mystery
(Italian Chef Mysteries)

Cozy Mystery
3rd in Series
Setting – New York
Publisher ‏ : ‎ Poisoned Pen Press (October 26, 2021)
Mass Market Paperback ‏ : ‎ 336 pages

Kindle ASIN ‏ : ‎ B08VYFC2VJ

A delicious new holiday mystery from USA Today bestselling author Catherine Bruns! It’s Christmas time in Harvest Park, so grab your cocoa and sleuthing snow boots for a Christmas cozy mystery sure to sleigh!

It’s the deadliest thyme of the year…

With snow dusting the ground and sauce sizzling on the stove, local chef Tessa Esposito is ready to serve up some holiday cheer. And with the annual Festival of Lights underway, it seems nothing can dim her spirits. Not even Mario Russo, the newest scrooge in town whose espresso bar has been quickly disrupting businesses and stealing customers from Harvest Park’s favorite coffeehouse.

But when Mario is discovered at the festival’s opening, face down in a Santa suit, Tessa realizes the bah humbug runs deeper than she could have imagined. And when one of her dearest friends is implicated in the crime, she must make a list of Mario’s enemies, check them twice, and discover the cold-blooded killer. Especially before they can sleigh again.

Dollycas’s Thoughts

Anything’s Pastable (I love that name) is open and owner and chef Tessa Esposito is ready for the holidays. She is baking tons of cookies to be served at Harvest Park’s annual Festival of Lights and getting ready for her Breakfast with Santa on Christmas Eve morning. She is also serving delectable meals at the restaurant on a daily basis. Working long 12 hour days are tiring her out but she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Harvest Park newcomer Mario Russo has become a daily customer who appears to have a crush on Tessa and most of the other women in Harvest Park. He opened The Expresso Lane, a coffee bar, about 3 months ago directly across the street from the beloved Archie Fenton’s Java Time. He is a pushy deplorable man that turns off Tessa in every way possible, plus his business is putting a huge dent in Archie’s business and several other Harvest Park businesses. Tessa tries to keep the Christmas Spirit but the man sure does not make that easy.

The first night of the Festival of Lights appears to be a grand success until Marco Russo’s dead body is found outside The Lake House where refreshments were being served and where kids could visit with Santa, the aforementioned Mario Russo. Sadly, the police have pegged Archie Fenton as their prime suspect but Tessa knows the list of Mario’s enemies in long and while most may be nice, someone was naughty and decided Mario would not be brewing another cup of coffee or listening to any more children’s wishes. Tessa with the assistance of her cousin Gabby hopes to identify the killer who will be getting the coal in their stocking behind bars.


This story contains a fabulous mystery set during the holiday season but it is so much more. Catherine Bruns has created characters that I have genuinely grown to enjoy following through their daily joys and trials. Tessa is an excellent protagonist. She has a curious nature and a huge heart. Her best friend Gabby makes an excellent sidekick and will support Tessa in any way she can. Gabby’s brother Gino is a cop who begs them both to stay in their lanes and let the police handle the investigation. Tessa’s landlord Vince is much more than he originally seemed and that made me happy. Firefighter Justin was Tessa’s husband’s best friend. Since her husband’s death, he has helped her in any way he can and has admitted that he does have feelings for her. She also has feelings for him but never wants to lose the friendship they have built so she is afraid to take their relationship to the next level. These characters are very likable and true to life. They face some very dramatic/dangerous situations but they all have each other’s back and will always be there for each other.

The author also includes a wonderful supporting cast that are believably connected and have purpose that adds to the story. Both the core and supporting characters are developing at a reasonable pace. She also created the swarmy Mario and gave this reader plenty to hold against him which led predictably to his death.

This mystery was a lot of fun because there were a lot of suspects. The plethora of suspects added several exciting moments. I just couldn’t zero in on the actual killer so the reveal was a thrilling surprise.

The Enemy You Gnocchi was a fantastic read. I love the way this author blends mystery with just the right amount of romance. The story is also written to draw the reader in and hold on tight. The main mystery is joined by delightful subplots and flows flawlessly. It truly was a Perfect Escape. I can’t wait to return to Harvest Park to see what these characters get into next.

Note – Ms. Bruns has included some marvelous recipes. You will want to try all of them before, during, and after reading this story, so plan ahead.
