Mayhem at the Orient Express – Kylie Logan

5/5 Freaky Blizzards

On the Back:

Most folks aren’t forced by court order to attend a library-book discussion group, but that’s just what happens to B and B proprietor and ex-Manhattanite Bea Cartwright, hippy cat lover Chandra Morrisey, and winery owner Kate Wilder after a small-town magistrate has had enough of their squabbling. South Bass, an island on Lake Erie, is home to an idyllic summer resort, but these three ladies keep disturbing the peace.

The initial book choice is Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, and that sets their mouths to watering. The Orient Express is the island’s newest Chinese restaurant. They might not agree about much, but the ladies all love the orange chicken on the menu. But their meal is spoiled when the restaurant’s owner, Peter Chan, has the bad fortune of getting murdered. Now, with Christie as their inspiration, the League of Literary Ladies has a real mystery to solve…if they can somehow catch a killer without killing each other first.

My Thoughts:

Wow, third great book in a row, I know this isn’t going to last forever. This book was amazing,and kept me glued to the pages.

Probably the biggest reason why I liked this book was the characters. Bea, Luella, Kate, and Chandra are some of the most likeable and believable characters I’ve read in awhile. Each had their faults, but each was lovable in their own way.

The biggest area I found this area lacking in was the setting. Sure some parts were described quite well, but I couldn’t quite picture other areas in my head.

Overall a really quick, enjoyable book that I’d easily recommend to anyone.
