    This book was super cute, and I loved the mystery element of it However, I would warn that the mystery doesn t feel like the central element to me Even though it drives the plot forward, the author focused the most on the relationships between the characters.What I found really cool about the book was that it took place in an Inn that only authors could stay in, while they are writing their mysteries This brought in an interesting element to the story because the authors wanted to solve a real m [...]

    What an adventure The story takes place on the coast of Oregon and I liked the location A lighthouse was mentioned, off and on, throughout the book and each time it was mentioned, I pictured the abandoned structure, located on a cliff where it would send out a warning, when ships depended on these lighthouses to keep them safe from rocky coastlines I am so into lighthouses I loved the bed and breakfast with it s very interesting guests who frequented the inn, not to mention Pippa and her uncle, [...]

    Review originally published at lomeraniel audiobookreThis book was different than I expected I have listened to quite some cozy mysteries, and that made me expect something else This is not the typical cozy mystery The setting is a coastal village, and the main character is a girl working on a bed breakfast whose unique clientele are writers Although it seemed a bit unrealistic that a BB could survive solely on hosting authors, it was an original and interesting setting.What failed for me here w [...]

  26. Phyllis Barlow

    First, let me say I won this is in a contest, and all I can say is, Thank you, Morgan I love books mysteries set in BB s so was excited to win this one.The BB is unique, in that only the guests allowed are mystery writers My first thought was how could that be profitable, but hey, this is fiction and knowing how many mystery fans and authors there are, I guess it could be.I really liked Pipa and her Uncle Hilt Actually, I liked all the characters I hope this becomes a long running series because [...]

  27. Joan

    This was a quick read with some nice touches although I was a bit perplexed to read that Peter Suchet starred in Poirot, and that someone can fall off the edge of a fjord And an oubliette is a secret dungeon with access only through a trapdoor in its ceiling, not a room at the top of a turret.Niggles aside, this was a nicely crafted story with a fresh twist having the B and B only for authors.

  28. Donna

    Mystery with a bit of romance and scones I enjoyed reading this book It is a great start to a new series The characters are well developed and a bit quirky just enough , and the mystery keeps you guessing until the end, with an unexpected twist tied to previously unknown family history I liked the main character s internal conversations with herself The premise of the B B established by a mystery writer as a haven for other mystery writers is a great starting place for the book and the future se [...]
