Novel Art of Murder

This 3rd installment of the VM Burns Mystery Bookshop series continues to be engaging reads.  This book finds Sam and the Senior Sleuthers investigating to clear one of their own again.  It is always enjoyable to read about their antics and see if I can solve the murder before Sam does.  This book gives us a look at more of Nona Jo's character and her stubbornness and tenacity.  The ladies continue to have fun adventures while trying to solve the crime.  This book is full of  people with secrets to keep and that keeps Sam and the ladies guessing as to who is behind the murder.  Secrets have a way of coming out in the end and they do here as well.  Sam's relationship with Frank continues to develop and you cannot help but root for them to stay together.

All in all an enjoyable book and I look forward to finish catching up on the series.


The Novel Art of Murder (Mystery Bookshop, #3)The Novel Art of Murder by V.M. Burns
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another fun installment in the Mystery Bookshop series. I am growing to feel as though I am part of Sam's family and friend group. This book finds Sam and her family dragged into yet another murder, this time a bit close to home. The comical relationships between Nona Jo and her friends are front and center in this book and there are plenty of surprises, not just related to the murder.

Overall a good cozy mystery and I always enjoy the mysteries about Lady Elizabeth and family as well.
