    Pretty good

    Like I said, I been in a cozy mystery and urban fantasy mood, looking for a new series I've been either hearing about or wanted to always read but hadn't had the time. Until now that is.

    So, this one I took my time reading and really liked it. I was going to give this a 3 or 3.5 star rating. But to be honest, 4 stars is just as good. What I liked about this was the characters. They each had their own personality, their likes, dislikes etc. The pace while slow, worked well and it is a cozy mystery after all.

    And to add that it has a book club in it. Any book or series that involves a book club, bookstore, library, writing or just books surrounding the plot, then I'm so there.

    And that I been wanting to read this than the other books I was currently reading.

    Though I'm noticing most of these series have a combo with cats and books on the covers.

    Anyway, enough gushing and onto the book.

    So on the night of the usual book club meetings of the Ashton Corner Mystery Reader and Cheese Straw Society club (long title), a murder happens. And throughout, the members go about their daily lives, while trying to figure out and sort out the who what when why, etc.

    Another thing I liked was the name and quote drops for each of the title chapters. Some of them from series I either heard of, have read or currently reading.

    Looking forward to seeing these characters again. Add to that that there was a lot of ridiculous amounts of foods described. Some of it sounded delicious but described well. Pretty good start to the series.

    4 STAR Really good mystery. I stayed up till 1:30 am. I won this book from Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book. I like the name of the book club they just started. Ashton Corners mystery readers and Cheese straws society. Lizzie lives in a 2 bedroom apartment. She is a reading specialist. She teaches to the teachers,students and older kids that are working on getting thier GED. Lizzie has her litercy and private tutoring at her friends Mollie big house. Lizzie starts a book club and invites a few of her students to come. sad to say on thier list of books only have read a few. When their first book club meets a strange man comes right into Molly's house. When bob goes to his car to drive home he sees the dead body. I did enjoy A Killer read and am glad that thier will be more to the series. 4/2012 PUB Berkly Prime Crime 294 pages

    The overview for this book is incorrect. it is apparently for a completely different mystery by another author. However, I enjoyed the story and look forward to more books in this series.

    This really started off with a "who done it"? Why was the victim in front of the house? Why had he come into the house earlier?
    What, if any, connection did he have with anyone in the group?
    As if that weren't enough, chapters of a mysterious manuscript start arriving at Lizzie's. Are they related to the murder?
    It all plays out well.
