Review: Cover Story by Erika Chase

Title: COVER STORY (An Ashton Corners Book Club Mystery Series).

Book club member Molly Mathews childhood friend has moved back to town. More exciting is the reason Teensy Coldicutt has moved back to town is that she has written a book. A steamy novel that Molly and the book club plan to help Teensy launch.

Lizzie Turner is happily lining up businesses for the signings but things come to a dying halt when Molly is beaten and hospitalize. Teensy's boxes of book are stolen and the publisher of the books is murdered. Add to that Bob Miller, a club member and a close friend to Molly not mention a former police chief has a dead man in his backyard.

The worst is yet to come when Bob Miller is arrested for murder. Plus now there is evidence of a counterfeit money ring to along with the murders.

Lizzy and the remaining reading group have decided it is up to them to find some answers before it's too late and another murder happens. They know Bob is innocent it's up to them to find the proof.

Lizzie doesn't understand what one-hundred and fifty copies of Teensy's novel has to do with this and who is not offering full disclosure ? Is there someone more dark and sinister behind the murders?

COVER STORY is a great addition to this popular mystery series. Colorful characters, fun plot and plenty of twists and turns.
ERIKA CHASE has penned a perfectly fun series that should be a wonderful addition for any mystery reader. I give it ********** stars.

Upside Down Post:

Yurn your frown upside down into a smile as this post is for those who do not enjoy the family gatherings at Christmas. You know who you are and why but today I thought it would be fun to have a little fun.

1. I'd rather drop a house on my sister.

2. Have a root canal

3. Eat fruitcake even the store bought kind.

4. Have my neighbor tell me about her colon in great detail

5. Dust

6. Watch my cat chase and kill a mouse

7. Hear the neighbor's dogs barking all night long.

8. Shovel snow

9. Open my prezzies and discover everyone sent me clothes two sizes too small. What is family for but to get the sizes wrong even after they call and ask.

An Interview with Frances Brody

MM: Frances, give us the back story on how and when you became an author?
I started by telling stories. I’d walk home from school with a friend and spin some tale that would last till the parting of our ways at the corner shop. In my twenties, I wrote stories that were published in magazines and broadcast on BBC Radio. I then wrote radio and theatre plays and scripts for television. My first novel was based on stories told to me by my mother.
MM: Tell us about what you are currently writing and what has been released?
I’m editing the eighth Kate Shackleton novel, Death at the Seaside. My setting is Whitby on the North Yorkshire coast. Whitby is where Bram Stoker has Count Dracula land in the Russian ship Demeter in the shape of a black dog. Dracula doesn’t appear in my story. But if he did, Kate Shackleton and her trusty assistants, Jim Sykes and Mrs Sugden, would deal with him.My latest release in the US is Kate Shackleton #5, Murder on a Summer’s Day. In the UK, it’s #7, A Death in the…

Review - Yellow as Legal Pads by Fran Stewart

Biscuit and Bob are on their honeymoon when Bob tries to help someone dying with resuscitation efforts that leave him poisoned and in ICU.

The story time hops a lot and introduces a lot of characters and isn't really your typical amateur sleuth asking questions all over town.

It is a series of pieces out of the life of the Holvers family and events that led to the current situation she and Bob are in.

It is interesting and complex at times but satisfying as the pieces come together.

I saw several reviews where the number of characters and time hopping frustrated readers and I admit, I had to pause a few times to make sure I was in tune to everything going on, but I thought it was fun a non-traditional which was a bit refreshing.
