Publisher's Summary

Lena London's literary dreams are coming true - as long as she can avoid any real - life villains....
Camilla Graham's best-selling suspense novels inspired Lena London to become a writer, so when she lands a job as Camilla's new assistant, she can't believe her luck. Not only will she help her idol craft an enchanting new mystery, she'll get to live rent-free in Camilla's gorgeous Victorian home in the quaint town of Blue Lake, Indiana.
But Lena's fortune soon changes for the worse. First, she lands in the center of small town gossip for befriending the local recluse. Then, she stumbles across one thing that a Camilla Graham novel is never without - a dead body, found on her new boss's lakefront property.
Now Lena must take a page out of one of Camilla's books to hunt down clues in a real crime that seems to be connected to the novelist's mysterious estate - before the killer writes them both out of the story for good....

Like an old time mystery---Fun flash back

This is the first time I have read / listened to a Julia Buckley's story. At first I was unsure. The story moves slower then what I am used to reading now. But it took me back to the mysteries I grew up on. Some Authors that came to mind are Agatha Christie, H. R. F. Keating, Carolyn Keene.

After you give the pace its rightful dues, you will enjoy the story as it develops. And now I want to move on to book 2 to see the next steps to be taken in this type of writing.
This story is set in the north during a time of the chill moving into the area. A small town by Blue Lake, Indiana. The timely hiring of Lena London as an assistant to her favorite writer, is the beginning of the novel. Things go wrong for this main character from the first day she moves into town. Friends are gained and treats are defined with the simply life goings on of this small town.

I liked the story. The narrator is not perfect for this book.

I am going to move on to book 2 .

I hated this book -

boring plot, weird unbelievable characters, really bad. I can usually find something to enjoy in a book - not this one
