One thought on “How to Murder the Man of Your Dreams

  1. George

    Another in the Ellie Haskell of Chitterton Falls, a small English coastal town, mystery This one deals with the 100th anniversary of the death of a townsman who cursed the town s library because of readers of romantic novels Romantic novels serve as the basis of the plot as Ellie and other townswomen are avid readers with resulting romantic fantasies Things are brought to a head when the male model closely resembling Fabio for romantic novel covers comes to town setting all female hearts aflutte [...]

    Absolutely love this series The cast of characters keep the laughs coming with enough action and mystery to make it difficult to put down I normally finish each book in this series in a day and eagerly await the next adventure Highly recommend

  3. C-shaw

    A library book with same characters as _The Thin Woman_ Entertaining, if a little silly at times, with some story lines and people that trailed off with no resolution or apparent raison d etre I hated the way the main character let others run over her and the way she ignored her long suffering husband however, in general she was likeable, as was this light mystery.Dorothy Cannell has a lovely style of writing, and I copied many quotations for my common book Rumour had it that she Miss Bunch, sta [...]

  4. Mary

    Title is the reason I picked up this book Giselle Ellie Haskell lives in a castle called Merlin s Court with her husband and twin boy and girl Tam and Abbey She is on the Library League and before a meeting she and the Brigadier find the librarian who ruled the library with an iron fist dead in the stacks She died from a virus that attacked her heart Ellie and the other members of the league decide that they need to raise money for a statue to honor their librarian It is suggested that they ask [...]

  5. Kay

    This was the greatest fun to read I laughed out loud over and over, the turns of phrase are from a master, the plot is a delicious fantasy, and the characters are so individual I could drop into Chitterton Fells and greet each one by name Satirical take on the romance genre, but a meta fiction, for it is a romance itself and features romance novel lovers yes, in both meanings of the word The unexpected pops up several times, adding to the fun So glad this was presented at book group and I immedi [...]

  6. Anne Hawn Smith

    Another book in the series Ellie Haskell series This one has a little plot than the last few, but still not as good as the first But then, in these books, it isn t really the crime that is most important It s just fun settling in with an odd bunch of characters, especially Ellie and her housekeeper.Ellie stumbles upon a body in the library and the romance readers of the town are under suspicion As usual, Ellie stumbles into the solution as she takes us up and down with her.

  7. Humbledaisy

    Not my favorite Ellie Haskell mystery possibly because it was written in the style of a hackneyed romance novel but I still love the characters I read this years ago when it was first released Right now, I am re working my way through the Kindle versions from my library.

  8. Carroll

    When Ellie Haskell arrives at the Chitteron Fells Library meeting, she discovers the librarian s corpse sprawled next to an open copy of The Dream Lover and must unmask the killer before she meets her own untimely and unromantic fate.

  9. Clare

    This book took a while to hook me and even then I didn t have much difficulty putting it down It did include a couple clever plot twists, which I enjoyed, but overall I would not really recommend it.

  10. Jennifer

    I can t even remember why I stalled out reading the Ellie Haskell series They are so entertaining and funny.

  11. Pat

    A Fabio type does a library fund raiser.Ties in well with the matchmaker of The Thin Woman days.Good, amusing.

  12. Odetta

    The reader had a British accent I couldn t understand what was being said, like the back seat of a Rover what s a Rover

  13. Kathie

    Pretty good reading I am getting to know the characters so it is easier to keep the storyline going in my head This mystery was believeable with a little ghostliness thrown in.

  14. Meg Trager

    Fun characters and relationships, well crafted mysteries and always entertaining Love this series.

  15. Katie Powell

    I love the Ellie Haskell books None of them are as fun as the first in the series, The Thin Woman, but they all are quick, snappy reads Highly recommend the series.

  16. Jacqueline Fairchild

    Set in a library where the cover model comes for a signingextremely funny and entertaining Dorothy Cannell at her best Jacqueline Gillam Fairchild author Estate of Mind
