On The Back:
Olivia Limoges and the Bayside Book Writers are excited about Oyster Bay’s newest resident: bestselling novelist Nick Plumley, who’s come to work on his next book. But when Olivia stops by Plumley’s rental she finds that he’s been strangled to death. Her instincts tell her that something from the past came back to haunt him, but she never expects that the investigation could spell doom for one of her dearest friends…
This book started off slow, but around page forty it picked up and became a great, fast read!
The characters have improved, in my opinion, since the start of the series. They all have shown more depth and understanding and each thing that happens to them leaves you wanting to protect them, just like you would your friends. However, Olivia can be slightly arrogant at times, but it doesn’t take away from the book.
The setting is flawless and so is the mystery, I would have never guessed the killer in this book and it broke my heart when you found out who it was.
Overall a great book. It was had to get into and the chapters were a bit long for my taste, but it didn’t take away from the book. I’m really looking forward to the next book!
