Inhaltsangabe zu "Fiction Can Be Murder (A Mystery Writer's Mystery)"

Mystery author Charlemagne "Charlee" Russo thought the twisty plots and peculiar murders in her books were only the products of her imagination. That is, until her agent is found dead exactly as described in her new, unpublished manuscript. Suspicion swirls around her and her critique group, making her confidence drop as severely and unexpectedly as her royalty payments.

The police care more about Charlee's feeble alibi and financial problems than they do her panicky claims of innocence. To clear her name and revive her career, she must figure out which of her friends is a murderer. Easier said than done, even for an author who's skilled at creating tidy endings for her mysteries. And as her sleuthing grows dangerous, her imagination starts working overtime. Is she being targeted, too?

    Entertaining and fun

    This was a wonderfully entertaining mystery novel which provided some great company while battling a nasty cold, where I was not able to digest anything other than light fare in more than one sense.

    It was so much fun to follow Charlee while she was trying to solve the murder case, more than once putting her foot in her mouth on the way. Though she sometimes acted silly, often hasty and most of the time so naive it almost hurt, it never failed to kept me glued to the pages.

    However, the solution to the mystery was disappointing - unpredictable and rushed, like she ran out of options and had to invent something at the last minute just for the sake of it. Good thing is, the ending is only a smaller part of the whole, so most of the time I had a great time reading this and I also will give this series another try with the sequel.

    (Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
