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.

A fun read with the heroine of the story, Jennifer Marsh, an unpublished author of murder mysteries being a suspect in a real murder. Fans of the Ivy Malone series will like this, although a much younger heroine, Jennifer gets in and out fixes that she has created herself. No foul language or gory details of the murders.

This wasn't a gripping, can't-put-it-down type of book but it was entertaining nonetheless.

Long boring plot

This is a must read for writers. An hilariously refreshing look at the publishing industry. Any writer can study the plot, dialogue, and show not tell passage and learn how to hone their craft. Evonovich has nothing on Fitzwater but fans at this point.

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.

This book was short and kept me interested the entire time. It actually had a few twists I didn't see coming. Quick summer read.

Good Free Read Jennifer Marsh is a mystery writer who cannot get her book published.  One day she comes up with this brilliant idea of why her manuscripts keep getting rejected, she needs to think like a murderer.  All she needs to do is find someone to kill.  She decides that she is going to kill the literary agent Penny Richmond.  All she needs to do is get herself locked up for the murder, and have herself a good alibi that the police cannot prove that she did not commit the murder.  Jenifer comes to her senses and realizes that she is not a murderer, but someone kills Penny, and Jennifer becomes the prime suspect.  How will she get herself out of this?   This book at times had be laughing out loud, some of Jennifer antics were just outrageous.  Jennifer’s group of friends who are also writers were just as funny and she was, and then you have the old ladies who were just as fun with their sleuthing.  Oh, and don’t forget Sam Culpepper who writes for the Macon Telegraph, he has become a distraction, she likes him, but he is getting in the  way of her plans.  In all I really did enjoy reading this.
