Dead Barchetta by Kathryn Lively

Note: This book is available in Kindle format under it's revised title - ROCK DEADLY

Award-winning author Kathryn Lively offers you a rocking mystery! Music tutor by day and tribute band guitarist by night, Matt "Lerxst" Johnston has woman problems. Well, maybe for a musician that's normal.

1) There's the willowy redhead who tries to kill him in his sleep.

2) There's the hot for music teacher cougar who wants help adjusting her "G-string."

3) There's the knife-wielding rock chick with a soft spot for strays.

And...there's grandma, and her "herb garden," legal only if you have a card, and definitely not in Virginia!

Normal? Heh.

Before Lerxst can find normal, he must learn the truth about his would-be killer, his family, and himself. And what a long, strange trip it is...

If you like this novel, you definitely want to check out Kathryn's other mystery,

Get set to go on a wild ride with Lerxst Johnson. Kathryn Lively paints a lush picture of the people, places and signposts of Virginia Beach and New York City. Lerxst Johnson is a rocker by night, guitar instructor by day. He meets some interesting people and dangerous situations along the way. To say he has girl trouble is the understatement of the century. The story is a great slow build to a dynamic conclusion. Tense family situations, road trips and a body count dot the scenery. Kathryn wears her interests on her sleeve here, namely her love of two cities, her fandom for the band Rush and her knack for dealing with the headlines and social issues of the day.

Music tutors have it hard to start with and something about them is inherently funny. Kathryn Lively creates Lerxst with a whole host of problems including someone trying to kill him. She takes us back stage to the gigs and really pulls the reader in from the start. A great read that made me laugh.

A trite as it may sound, I found myself not able to put this one down. Lively has a gift for mixing suspense with the truly unexpected, often with darkly humorous results. You never quite know what the next page is bringing, but odds are that it will only add to the delightful mix of calamity and hilarity that surrounds our boy Lerxst. Being a quick and engaging read, I don't want to reveal too much in this review, but if seemingly odd bedfellows such as fake limbs and bombs sound intriguing, pick this book up now!!! Truly an engaging and enjoying read.
