A killer is calling, and Ellison’s life is on the line.
Ellison Russell is planning the event of the season—and she’s stressed. Why not yoga?
Because the yoga instructor gets murdered during class—and Ellison’s stress level rises exponentially. Now, in addition to raising a ridiculous amount of money, she’s babysitting a deranged cat (named after the devil himself), taking ten million phone calls (most of them from Mother), and finding more bodies (they’re popping up like dandelions after a spring rain).
There’s no such thing as balance when the killer makes it personal. Can Ellison catch a murderer or will her next namaste be her last?

TELEPHONE LINE by Julie Mulhern | A Henery Press Mystery. If you like one, you’ll probably like them all.
Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders. She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean—and she's got an active imagination. Truth is—she's an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.

BETTER THAN EVER!
TELEPHONE LINE (The Country Club Murders Book 9) is proof positive that Julie Mulhern’s writing is BETTER THAN EVER! While readers have come to love main character Ellison, her teenage daughter Grace, her formidable Mother Frances, her boyfriend Detective Anarchy Jones and her best friend Libba, Mulhern always manages to add new depth to these characters that we think we know so well. She continues to develop each of them individually and it makes readers feel as if we’re learning new things about our own friends. As we’ve come to expect, MURDER seems to follow/find Ellison whether she wants it to or not! This leads to her immediately receiving a telephone call from her Mother demanding to know why she has 1) found another dead body, 2) been on the scene when a murder took place, 3) knows the victim or 4) someone has reported something that they heard about Ellison/overheard Ellison’s conversation about. Obviously, her telephone rings quite frequently! This novel brings Ellison into more perilous situations than she’s ever met before. The Good News - she has Anarchy on her side. The Bad News - her Mother and the Telephone Line. What is the common denominator in all these situations? Where does Ellison fit in and is she next on the list? I was provided an ARC of this novel by Henery Press and Edelweiss. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.
It simply doesn't get any better this. Murder mysteries, well dressed ladies in twin set cashmere sipping cocktails, tongue in cheek sarcastic humor, and a touch of romance. One of my favorite series.
You've got to live the 70's!!!
If you can find a murder mystery with more humor and social relevance, I want to know about it. Julie Mulhern has once more produced an excellent, can't-put-it-down, story that lives accurately in the 70's without being dated and speaks to today. I want to know these people, to live in this neighborhood and play bridge with them...as long as I don't wind up being "discovered" in an unfortunately terminal condition! If you haven't had the good fortune to enjoy the series, you need to begin reading today!
