Murder takes a page from a small-town Texas bookstore owner’s latest book club pick in this cozy mystery by author of Lethal Literature.
Charli takes great pride in running one of the few independent, family-owned bookstores in
Texas. She vets everything carefully, with an eye to the eclectic tastes of the locals of Hazel Rock. That includes the Book Barn’s weekly book club selection. This time out it’s a mystery whose characters bear a striking resemblance to local citizens, including Charli’s friend Sugar . . . who’s the prime suspect when her real-life nemesis is found dead in a hotel’s water tank.
With help from her pet armadillo Princess, Charli campaigns to clear Sugar’s sweet name—literally—when the up-for-election mayor becomes a killer’s next target. Murder and politics make scandalous bedfellows as Charli discovers that fiction may be fatal, but reality could be just as deadly . . .
