Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for an advance e copy of Murder by the Book by Lauren Elliot Murder by the Book is the first book in a new three book “Beyond the Pages” mystery series and will be released on October 30 2018 I discovered this series through the Owl’s Nest Books Hootdunnit Mystery Book Club as they are scheduled to discuss this book in May 2019I was so looking forward to this new series; the cover drew me right in to this cozy mystery set in a used bookstore in a little seaside town and written by a local author who promises to keep readers captivated and guessing until the last chapter Unfortunately I could not have been disappointed The main character Addie is supposedly grieving the loss of her fiancé and father – her fiancé was recently murdered yet the murder was unsolved as it was not competently investigated and Addie seems to have accepted this without explanation and her father was recently killed in a motor vehicle accident She couldn’t be further from the picture of grief Instead she happily moves into a manor she has just inherited from her aunt who has also passed away within one week of her father discovers her aunt’s rare book collection and energetically opens a used and rare bookstore Instantaneously she makes an enemy of the owner of one store next door and a best friend of the other Within three days she’s been run down started a kitchen fire and had both home and store broken into and ransacked daily; police write these incidents off as purely coincidental but it does create repeated encounters with the chief of police her new best friend’s brother and a romance blossoms despite her supposed grief Murders are committed within town crime scenes are turned over and returned to normal within record breaking hours suspicious out of town visitors regularly cause drama within town yet cannot be identified or located and shocking evidence and clues are often discovered while an officer and civilian work together to solve these crimes neither seemingly intelligible or experienced than the other This is a juvenile story in which two 30 something year old characters interact like young teenagers and is written at the comprehension level of a young teenager It reminded me of reading Nancy Drew mystery stories 20 years ago and I could not recommend this book to anyone over the age of 12 Please seriously consider categorizing this series as Young Adult or Children’s fiction
