What makes it: A Murder Like No Author (by Amy Lillard)

This title is the third in the series following on the earlier Can’t Judge a Book by Its Murder and A Murder Between the Pages. I have not read these by may go back to them.

A Murder Like No Author is a southern set mystery. I was interested to read it when I saw that a book store is a part of the story.

Readers of cozies will enjoy this story. The plot has to do with a new movie production of GIrl Missing. The author is no longer alive but a stranger has appeared questioning her authorship of the novel.

Of course, there is a murder. There are suspects. There are recurring series characters. And, there are the elements that readers hope for in cozies.

Those looking for a light read may well enjoy this title. The author has a very readable style. Give it a peek.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

Kirkus Reviews says “the book club ladies make a winning team in an amusing tale replete with down-home atmosphere and romance,” and Mystery and Suspense Magazine calls Murder Like No Author “well-crafted and unique. Passages throughout the book reveal an author who understands the south and what living in a small southern town is like.”

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
