A Novel Way to Die


Book #4 Read in 2013
A Novel Way to Die by Ali Brandon

This is the second book in a great cozy mystery series.  This series is set in a bookstore, owned by Darla.  Living in the apartment below the store is Darla's friend Jake, a retired NYC cop.  The other cast of recurring characters include James, the somewhat stuffy but literary store employee; Reese, the handsome NYC Detective and of course Hamlet, the bookstore's resident feline whom Darla inherited from her aunt along with the bookstore.  In this book, a customer of Darla's is found murdered.  One of the neighboring shopkeepers is arrested for the murder.  Hamlet seems to have a differing opinion and is once again leaving clues through books for Darla to piece together.  But will she be able to in time?

I love this series.  These books have a good mystery plot, great characters, good action, a hint of romance and is set in one of my favorite places--bookstore!--with one of my favorite things--cat!--so it is a hit with me.  I recommend this series.
