New Cozy Mystery Series

Olivia Limoges has returned to Oyster Bay, North Carolina and to her family home her dog Captain Haviland is her best friend. Olivia doesn't have to work as she is a very wealthy woman but that doesn't mean she that she doesn't fill her time with worthy causes. She owns a lot of Oyster Bay and she is also writing a novel. Lately Olivia has suffered writer's block and so when she is asked to join the Bayside Book Writers she does exactly that and in the process makes many new friends. One friend in particular is Camden Ford and from the beginning of their friendship Olivia begins redoing her lighthouse cottage because the writers need a less public place to meet.

All is going beautiful for Olivia until Camden is murdered and the killer leave a haiku poem as his calling card. Then another murder happens and soon Olivia and the other writers begin their own investigation into the murders.

There is the new bookstore owner that nobody knows much about and a famous family who seem to have more secrets than James Bond, there is a couple of locals and many more suspects.

So if you like to read a nice cozy setting with lots of fun characters and a few quirky townsfolk then you won't want to miss one of the best cozy mysteries on today's market.

This is a first mystery in the series and I am hook, line and sinker a fan of Ellery Adams series. You will enjoy Olivia and Captain Haviland.
