Death in a Difficult Position by Diana Killian is the fourth book in the “Mantra for Murder” mystery series. Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime, September 2011
Yoga, a sin? That is what the newly arrived Reverend is telling his congregation. While A.J. and the other yoga owners tried to talk some sense into him, Lily lets her temper get the best of her and when he is murdered, Lily becomes the prime suspect. Knowing that A.J. like sleuthing, Lily asks A.J. to find the killer before she is doing a 7-year stretch. I enjoyed this lighthearted and fast-paced story. The mystery was good, as I didn’t pinpoint the killer until later in the story and it was fun watching A.J. and her mother “work” the case. New characters were introduced in this tale and I hope we get to see more of them in the next installment of this likeable series.
