    One thought on “Booked for Murder”

    1. If you've read this far in the series, and they should be read in order, Alex and Elise feel like old friends. Old friends that you want to grab by the shirt collars and yell, "Get on with it already."The Hatteras West Inn is having a exhibition of a Carolina Rhapsody Emerald. The owner isn't particularly pleasant and they have to have a full-time security guard so Alex is happy to see the exhibition coming to an end. It can't be that simple though. The emerald is stolen, dead bodies turn up, it [...]

    2. I normally don't start a series in the middle, but I found this book at a thrift store and, as I have been wanting to read this series, I picked it up. Myers does a great job of summarizing previous story lines without giving anything important away. The characters work well together and the conversational tone of the story makes it a fast, enjoyable read. The case kept me guessing until close to the end. I like figuring out the killer before the big reveal: it makes me feel like I'm "in" on a s [...]

    3. Another interesting entry in Tim Myers' saga of the West Hatteras Inn in Elkton Falls. This one had a few more red herrings in the mystery part than some of the other books, but I think I figured it out about the same time as the protagonist did for once. The demure relationship between Alex and Elise takes a turn for the better in this tale, but don't worry; at this rate it will be at least twenty more books before this series has a chance of becoming 50 Shades.

    4. Alex runs a novelty inn. An exact duplicate of the Hattera Lighthouse, but in the mountains of NC. A local eccentric wants to display his giant emerald so people can enjoy it and a room at the inn is chosen is where. The guard is killed, the emerald stolen and replaced with a fake.The guests are suspects as are townspeople. Alex investigates.This is the third in the Lighthouse Inn series and I enjoyed it. The setting and characters are enjoyable.

    5. This author certainly deserved the Agatha Award as his books are easy to read. The plots and characters are very easy to get into and not want to put down. They are very short jewels of mystery and I would recommend to any mystery buff to just read them for the pure enjoyment they bring! Reading his candlemaking series now and loving it as well.

    6. I do enjoy this gentle cozy series. The interactions between Mor and Emma and Alex and Elise are great fun.

    7. This series is a bit cheesey, but I LOVE lighthouses and the thought of running an inn inside of lighthouse thrills me. The plots are easy to detect, but interesting aspects do occur.

    8. Set in the foothills of North Carolina, but not a very interesting story. I wanted to like it more than I did. It was just too obvious.
