4 STARS This is the second book in the series. The book club discussions are on the mystery writer Josephine Tey. I have never heard of so that was interesting for me. These discussions are very smart and are led by Professor Lexie Driscoll. Almost like a college class with homework just reading the book. Lexie is hosting the meetings at her house she is renting from boyfriend. Who is working in England for a couple of months. Lexie is also attracted to police detective Brian. Homicide detective Brian Donovan wants to date Lexie. He is single. He will not discuss police cases with Lexie. During the first book discussion on Tey a peeping tom is looking into the room. Joy former FBI Agent is the one who sees him and takes off chasing him but lost him. Lexie's sister Gayle showed up but is on the run. Leaves early the next morning after finding a dead body in Lexie's yard. The dead guy is local handyman and rumor has it works for the mob sometimes. Brian first gets the case. There are a lot of crimes in the neighborhood lately. It seems everyone in the book club has secrets and relationship to the dead guy. The novel is very intelligent book. It has a lot of suspects, crimes , drama, romance and is a clean read. Makes me want to try reading one on Tey's mystery for myself sometime. This is a slower paced book that makes you think. It is a different pace than I have read for awhile. I liked it. I would read another book by Marilyn Levinson again. I would be even tempted to read the books they discuss in their book club first if mentioned on first page or so. I was given this ebook to read so I could give a honest book review and be part of Murder the Tey Way book tour.
