A Killer Plot
This was a fun little mystery. Olivia Limoges is a woman with a tragic past who has returned to her hometown after making her fortune. She keeps to herself, with her best friend being her loyal dog, until a restuaranteur friend convinces her to join a local writer's group. As she finds herself making friends, Olivia begins to feel more comfortable in her old home...until one of her new friends is brutally murdered. Now she & the survivng members of the group are trying to help the local law enforcement solve the case and prevent anyone else from dying.
Ellery Adams manages to introduce quite a few characters in this first book of a new series, but manages to make you feel a connection to most of them. You find out what happened to Olivia as a child, but there is still some mystery as to what went on in her life after she was taken away from the town and raised elsewhere. I'm sure it will be addressed in later book, and can't wait to find out.
