A Killer Plot

A Killer Plot
by Ellery Adams

Olivia Limoges has returned to her hometown, Oyster Bay, North Carolina. She is an astute businesswoman who owns a lot of property in town. Olivia is also an aspiring writer with a case of writer's block. Camden Ford, the leader of the Bayside Writers group, overhears Olivia complaining to her friend Dixie about the problems she is having with her book. Ford invites Olivia to join their group. Soon after she joins the group, one of the members is found dead in an alley with a Haiku poem next to the body. Other bodies with Haiku poems turn up around town. Olivia and her new found friends join forces with the police chief to find the killer. This is an engaging cozy with engaging characters such as Dixie, the pint-sized, roller skating waitress. [If you enjoy this, you may also wish to try the works of Lorna Barrett, Julie Hyzy and Claudia Bishop.] -- recommended by Donna G. - Virtual Services Department
