Murder Beyond Wordsby Julie Christensen
During a heat wave in New York City, a literary agent is murdered in her Brooklyn apartment. Across the hall in 3B, aspiring writer Ruby Neptune finds herself sucked into the murder investigation of a neighbor she barely knew and didn't really like. The agent seems to have known her killer, as there was no forced entry. Ruby slowly discovers that many of her neighbor's friends had strong reasons to want her dead. Determined to find the killer, Ruby puts her own life on hold, which upsets her closest friends, one of whom suspect that her new boyfriend is capable of the murder. As the list of suspects narrows, it hits uncomfortably close to home and Ruby finds herself lying to friends and even putting aside her writing career to solve the case. But will Ruby be able to identify the killer before she becomes the next victim?

I loved this story about Ruby. What a character she is. Lots of action, twists, and surprises in this story. I love how she describes her characters and plots. Kept me fooled until the end.
This book grabs you right away. The characters are relatable and interesting. The authors describtive words paint a picture that you actually can see in your head. LOVED IT! Wish it had been longer but I'm going to get the second book.
I loved this book right from the beginning. I don't normally read mysteries, but I was thoroughly engaged and trying to figure out who did it. The plot and dialogue seemed very real. The main character, Ruby Neptune, is very cool and gutsy and has some surprises up her sleeve. I look forward to more Ruby Neptune Mysteries.
Well done! Had me fooled right to the end. Early on i thought murder had sometging to do with cigarettes
