Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
A simple dispute can turn bloody with the right nudging. "Murder in the Stacks" is another entry into Mary Clay's DAFFODILS series, following a trio of middle-aged women celebrating their freedom from men they stayed with for far too long. When they go to the Floridian town of New Smyrna, a debate of its founding day versus St. Augustine flares up. As the DAFFODILS soon find, it may be up to them to solve this at first harmless debate which has spiraled out to the furthest thing from it. "Murder in the Stacks" is a fun read that should prove very difficult to put down.
Daytona Beach News-Journal
When this certain group of Southern women gets together, there always seems to be a murder--and as unfunny as murder sounds, author Mary Clay will have you rolling in the floor laughing--between trips to your liquor cabinet--as her mostly zany but likable characters go about living, drinking and solving the "crime," in which they all are directly or indirectly involved. In her most recent novel, "Murder in the Stacks," Clay spins her tale in New Smyrna Beach. Florida, where a controversy continues with history and archaeology experts over the timing of colonial establishments in St. Augustine and New Smyrna in the 1700s. A much anticipated debate on the subject at the New Smyrna library one night turns into an argument, then a melee. The meeting AND the library are evacuated and shut down. Word soon gets out that two people are found dead in the library. That's when Clay's characters--primary are friends and former college chums Penny Sue, Ruthie and Leigh, who are now of a "certain age"--get to work: first, to determine the causes of death; then to unravel a complex set of seemingly unrelated facts that involve everything from past romances to home security systems, the New Jersey mafia, a women's investment club, book returns at the library and good old-fashioned detective work. "Murder in the Stacks" is a fun summer read and will provide a good mental workout in crime solving. Grab yourself a copy--and a cocktail. --(Karen Gallagher )
