Again, a good read and a very interesting resolution -- I won't give away 'who did it'. But I will object to the fact that the heroine (yes I still use that word) straightens up her bedroom in case the boyfriend spends the night -- on Christmas Eve, who gets all tingling in her toes at the thought of said assignation on Christmas Eve. It was unnecessary and distracting.

The Ashton Corners Cheese Straw Society Book Club find themselves with another mystery. And it involves one of their members it seems. Or is there more to this than they realize? In the second book, we get a visiting writer and a murder which takes place in Lizzie's house. From there, the mystery takes its time to get going. Not that there's anything wrong with establishing stuff. But I felt the pace was a little slow with this one and moments where it did get a little frustrating. But once I continued reading, I found halfway into the book, there were hints of character development, especially with a certain cop and the mystery aspect picked up which was nice. Other than that, this was a good sequel and liked that it involved more of the group and their friendships. Especially Lizzie and Molly I felt stood out. And also Andi is one of my favorites so far. With the food mentions, I looked them up and they look delicious, especially the cookies, scones, etc. And of course appreciate the book name drops, if I'm looking for a new cozy mystery. I look forward to reading about the Ashton Corners and the Cheese Straw Society Book Club and what mystery they'll solve next.

The Ashton Corners Book Club is back in action. It’s Christmastime in Ashton Corners, Alabama and Lizzie Turner and her friends get an unholy surprise. A well known novelist shows up in town and intends to speak at their book club meeting. His intentions, however, are questionable and he winds up dead. I thoroughly enjoyed my second visit to Ashton Corners, although I still am not sure how Lizzie finds the time for all of her activities. She has a regular job, tutors, is in a choir, a book club, and jogs regularly! There was one minor editing issue which caught my attention and caused me to read the section in question a few times, but it certainly didn’t detract from the story as a whole. I wonder if anyone else caught it. Erika Chase gives us cozy Southern charm and characters we’d like to call friends. I know I enjoy my time in Ashton Corners; I recommend you pay a visit! Read and Buried is the 2nd in the Ashton Corners Book Club Mystery Series.

This mystery keeps you reading. There's a little too much built into the coincidences that make the main character's boyfriend always ready to believe the worst of her, but gloss over that and enjoy the read.

Read and Buried is the second book in the An Ashton Corners Book Club series. I really am enjoying this series. The author tells a wonderful story and it reads at a nice even pace. The cast of characters run from around 17 to 70 and are all interesting in their own way. It is a couple weeks before Christmas in Ashton Corners and everyone is busy getting ready to celebrate the holidays. Lizzie Turner has stopped by the Book Bin to check out the latest mysteries. Jensy, the owner, introduces her to author Derek Alton and suggests that maybe Alton could be a guest at the next meeting of Lizzie's book club. Alton then stops by Lizzie's home to learn more about the members of the club. Just as they are start a shot rings out and Alton is killed. A couple days later another shot is fired into Lizzie house, narrowly missing her while fixing her breakfast. Now, Lizzie the book club and the police are thinking that maybe she was the intended victim. It is soon learned that Alton ad ties Ashton Corners and now Lizzie and the book club will discreetly be looking for the murderer before they strike again. A wonderful cozy and am looking forward to the next book.
