Publisher's Summary

In the seventh Kate Lawrence Mystery, the amateur sleuth and her realtor partners, Margo and Strutter, investigate the sometimes frightening consequences of thwarted creative egos.
When Margo's aunt, mystery writer Maybelle Farnsworth, moves to town a few weeks before Halloween, she soon becomes the target of a neighborhood prankster, or so Kate and her partners believe at first. When the dirty tricks escalate from annoying to terrifying, May's secret sideline as the publisher of a line of sexy romance novels comes into play. A horrified husband learns the true nature of his novelist wife's work, and a rejected author plots revenge. Within the context of this cozy mystery, the author shines a light into the seldom acknowledged dark corners of today's ultra-competitive publishing industry, including manipulative agents, clashing egos, and unethical ploys used by a few misguided authors to gain listeners' attention, such as fraudulent claims of prize nominations and paid-for reviews.

Not a mystery

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not as a mystery but it was a good chick lit.

Would you be willing to try another book from Judith Ivie? Why or why not?

No, I like real mysteries that I get to figure out who dunnit.

What does Molly Elston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was an good narrator although I was not crazy about the accents.

Any additional comments?

Not sure how this is considered a mystery but really there was just no mystery there. It is a good chick lit book with lots of nice female bonding but no mystery for us to figure out.
