This is one of the few books that I literally picked because of its cover. If you noticed there are two Siamese cats which got my attention. Now I am an avid animal lover but it was really because they look exactly like my cat Bobby or otherwise known as Bobblehead and his mother Chloe who is my friends cat. I did not even read the back of the book but from the looks of this book it screamed mystery and I was right.
Lizzie Turner is excited about her first book club meeting for the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers but then a murder happens at the southern mansion. Everyone is a suspect for the murder of this stranger and it will bring Lizzie face to face with her high school crush police chief especially as Lizzie is finding mysterious manuscripts in her mailbox.
A Killer Read by Erika Chase is the first book of the new series Ashton Corners. Now as a mystery novel it was intriguing but it didn’t pull me in all the way. I am bias with mystery novels as I am not the biggest fan. They don’t move me with the murder mystery aspect. A Killer Read was a fun novel though with the characters and the trusty pair of cats. I did like that it kinda resembled clue as a body appears and everyone is a suspect in the house. It had a Agatha Christie feel to the novel which was ironic as this author was referenced within the pages. I can see that this series will continue and will go for another round.
