Bestselling thriller writer Tess Harrow is almost at the end of her rope when she arrives with her teenage daughter at her grandfather's rustic cabin in the woods. She hopes this will be a time for them to heal and bond after Tess's recent divorce, but they've barely made it through the door when an explosion shakes the cabin. Suddenly it's raining fish guts and...is that a human arm?
This one had me laughing by the end of chapter 1, and I didn't stop! Tess takes the meddling amateur sleuth to the extreme as she inserts herself into the investigation. And the investigation? Turns out real life is stranger than fiction! I inhaled it in two sittings, and can't wait for the next book in the fall! - John
A thriller writer flees to a small Alaska town after surviving a kidnapping. She plans to hide out and get her writing mojo back, but quickly gets pulled into a local murder investigation. Shelton's first thriller is a winner!
Not technically a cozy, but perfect for Janet Evanovich fans. A writer is mistaken for a contract killer after she's overheard discussing the plot of her work in progress. One of my favorite reads of last year!
