The Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco

 This is the first installment in the Book Club mystery sereis by Laura DiSilverio.  The book is set in Heaven, Colorado and centers around Amy Faye and her friends.  She is the founder of the book club, the Readaholics.  The book they were reading that month was the Maltese Falcon.  In a strange twist of fate, they discuss the MacGuffin which is a term I had never heard of until preparing for my 2021 challenges.  I found this to be an extra aspect of interest when reading the story.     

The story has some more outrageous moments but all in all it is easy to relate to the characters and their relationships are quite entertaining.   I will be reading more of this series going forward.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars 

I enjoyed reading this new series based on a book club group in Heaven, Colorado. The mystery is the center of the book but there is additional storyline development involving the main character, Amy Faye and her friends. While some of the things that happen to Amy Faye seem a bit far fetched at times, the book is still quite enjoyable and I would like to read more in the series. This is a great book if you like reading about mysteries within your cozy books. The characters are quirky and you find yourself rooting for them to succeed
