Today I'm reviewing A Killer Plot by Ellery Adams.
Summary from GoodReads: In the small coastal town of Oyster Bay, North Carolina, you'll find plenty of characters, ne'er-do-wells, and even a few celebs trying to duck the paparazzi. But when murder joins this curious community, the Bayside Book Writers are there to get the story...
Olivia Limoges is the subject of constant gossip. Ever since she came back to town-a return as mysterious as her departure-Olivia has kept to herself, her dog, and her unfinished novel. With a little cajoling from the eminently charming writer Camden Ford, she agrees to join the Bayside Book Writers, break her writer's block, and even make a few friends...
But when townspeople start turning up dead with haiku poems left by the bodies, anyone with a flair for language is suddenly suspect. And it's up to Olivia to catch the killer before she meets her own surprise ending.
Review after the jump!
Review: I’m back and forth about this book. Is it the best cozy I’ve read? Nope. Is it better than some of the others? Yep. Is the main character good? Yep, but she’s also a pill. She’s pretty unlikeable, but an unlikeable character isn’t necessarily a bad character and it did have an intriguing plot and cast of other characters. Verdict: Intriguing plot saved some less than likable characters from dragging the story down to DNF-town.
