Getaway With Murder is the first in a cozy series from Diane Kelly set in a lodge in the Blue Ridge Mountains, where secrets hide behind every hill.

As if hitting the half-century mark wasn't enough, Misty Murphy celebrated her landmark birthday by amicably ending her marriage and investing her settlement in a dilapidated mountain lodge at the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With the old inn teetering on both a bluff and bankruptcy, she must have lost her ever-loving mind.

Luckily, handyman Rocky Crowder has a knack for rehabbing virtual ruins and for doing it on a dime, and to Misty's delight, the lodge is fully booked on opening night, every room filled with flexible folks who'd slipped into spandex and ascended the peak for a yoga retreat with plans to namastay for a full week. Misty and her guests are feeling zen-at least until the yoga instructor is found dead.

With a killer on the loose and the lodge's reputation hanging in the balance, Misty must put her detective-skills to the test. Only one thing is as clear as a sunny mountain morning-she must solve the crime before the lodge ends up, once again, on the brink.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Clever characters, witty humor, and a dangerous case to crack. . . this whodunit has it all."—Woman's World

Praise for Diane Kelly:

"[Diane] is beloved for her delightfully fun amateur sleuth sagas."—Woman's World (A Book Club Pick of the Week)

"This is a pleasant and comfy read, particularly for dedicated HGTV fans familiar with the concept of flipping houses."—Mystery Scene Magazine

"A cat, a can-do heroine, and a corpse in the flower bed. You're going to laugh."—Christie Craig, New York Times bestselling author of the Texas Justice series

Library Journal


Misty Murphy's efforts to reshape her life as the new owner of the recently rebranded Mountaintop Lodge take an unexpected detour when she stumbles across the body of one of her particularly high-maintenance guests: yoga studio owner Sasha Ducharme-Carlisle. Now to keep her fledgling business from going under from the bad publicity, Misty knows she must sleuth out the killer from a lodge full of suspects. Kelly ("House Flipper"; "Southern Homebrew") launches an entertaining new series set in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Kelly's choice to focus on an older sleuth carrying no emotional baggage from past romantic relationships makes for a refreshing switch-up from the usual cozy amateur detective, and the inclusion of some snippets written from Misty's totes adorbs feline Yeti's point of view adds to the book's wry sense of humor. VERDICT A charming puzzler that ticks off all the boxes on a cozy mystery fan's reading wish list.—John Charles
