I found this book to be a delight. It has a strong determined heroine who is trying to do her best to become a mystery writer. She has a critique group of other aspiring writers who are zany, believable and an all-around group of people you wouldn't mind meeting. Jennifer may be a little obsessive but her heart is always in the right place. She might be able to write about murder, even plan a murder, but commit murder -- no way! The problem, of course, arises when she plans a murder but someone else carries it through - leaving her with no alibi and in a jail cell. Thank God she has friends! This is the kind of book you can read on vacation and people will look at you wondering what you are laughing at. Whether or not Jennifer will ever get published, we don't know, but I am sure you will be as glad as I am that Judy Fitzwater did.

    Delightful and Entertaining

    I enjoyed every word. The humor has a natural flow that doesn't feel forced like some I've read lately. I'm ready for the next book in the series.

    A good read

    For anybody who has ever tried to write a mystery, this is a great idea. The author has a great sense of humor along with good plotting skills. I look forward to the next book.

    Aninymous

    It was an okay read, but jumped around too much. Just when the book would start to flow it would jump to another scene.
