--Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (regarding Murder in the Manor)
KILLED WITH A KISS (A LACEY DOYLE COZY MYSTERY—BOOK 5) is book five in a charming new cozy mystery series which begins with MURDER IN THE MANOR (Book #1), a #1 Bestseller with over 100 five-star reviews—and a free download!
Lacey Doyle, 39 years old and freshly divorced, has made a drastic change: she has walked away from the fast life of New York City and settled down in the quaint English seaside town of Wilfordshire.
In a romantic daytrip in the English countryside, Lacey lucks out in an antique market and stumbles upon an incredible find. She has high hopes as she makes it the centerpiece of her next auction.
But as summer is coming to a close, two high-rollers come into town and duke it out over the antique, their egos as big as their wallets. When one of them wins but loses the auction on a technicality, chaos ensues. The only thing that makes it worse is when one ends up dead.
Lacey finds herself in the fight of her life to save her business and her reputation—and, with the help of her beloved dog, to solve the mysterious death.

Tired theme to the Lacey Doyle mysteries
I have the audio versions of these books. They are fun stories and a good escape from the current state of affairs in our world. With that said, I’m really tired of the same theme: Lacey finds a dead body and inevitably becomes a suspect in the murder. So far, there has only been one book in this series , to this point, that has strayed from this theme.
I’ll continue to listen as they are entertaining. I just hope future books in the series are a bit different.
