While walking her poodle, Olivia Limoges discovers a dead body buried in the sand. Could it be connected to the bizarre burglaries plaguing Oyster Bay, North Carolina?
At every crime scene, the thieves set up odd tableaus: a stick of butter with a knife through it, dolls with silver spoons in their mouths, a deck of cards with a missing queen. Olivia realizes that each setup represents a cliché. And who better to decode the cliché clues than her Bayside Book Writers group?

A Wonderful 2nd Installment!
Absolutely. I am an avid cozy mystery listener, and this is hands down my new favorite series. I love the characters, I love how they are developed, and I love how Karen White delivers a spectacular performance.
Absolutely. The plot had A LOT going on, but in a good way. You have a few different things that weave together, and the whole time you are unsure who to trust or what will come next.
You learn a bit more about Olivia's past and how that shaped her as the person she is today, and wow it will leave you feeling so many different emotions. You feel sadness, but also a sense of peace for her. The scene at the end of the book which addresses her family is one that was narrated so well and my favorite for that reason
This book brought out every single emotion. It made me cry, it made me feel grief, it made me feel joy, and a sense of redemption. I laughed at a few different parts, and really felt like I knew and understood the characters.
I highly recommend that you read this series in order! For starters there is a book club, and that theme carries through each of the novels. This is important because each of the characters books are sampled throughout, so for example you will get to hear chapter 2 of Harrison's book, and then later on you get to hear Chapter 2 of Malay's book. However, this folds over into each series, so in the 3rd book of this series the stories continue, and it helps a lot to put them together! Also, there are a few different plots happening, two of the running plots deal with murder and mystery, and one plot deals with Olivia's business venture, and a fourth plot deals with Olivia's personal life (and boy thats a huge and shocking story line). You get to know each character more personally, and reading them in order amplifies that.
