A Dark and Stormy Murder by Julia Buckley- Feature and Review



ABOUT THE BOOK:
 
An aspiring suspense novelist lands in the middle of a real crime, in the first in a captivating new series by the author of the Undercover Dish Mysteries.
 
Lena London's literary dreams are coming true—as long as she can avoid any real-life villains...
 
Camilla Graham’s bestselling suspense novels inspired Lena London to become a writer, so when she lands a job as Camilla’s new assistant, she can’t believe her luck. Not only will she help her idol craft an enchanting new mystery, she’ll get to live rent-free in Camilla’s gorgeous Victorian home in the quaint town of Blue Lake, Indiana.

But Lena’s fortune soon changes for the worse. First, she lands in the center of small town gossip for befriending the local recluse. Then, she stumbles across one thing that a Camilla Graham novel is never without—a dead body, found on her new boss’s lakefront property.

Now Lena must take a page out of one of Camilla’s books to hunt down clues in a real crime that seems to be connected to the novelist’s mysterious estate—before the killer writes them both out of the story for good...
 



MY REVIEW:

A Dark and Stormy Murder (A Writer's Apprentice Mystery #1)A Dark and Stormy Murder by Julia Buckley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A Dark and Stormy Murder ( A Writer's Apprentice Mystery #1) by Julia Buckley is a 2016 Berkley publication.


This first book in the series sets the tone for future installments with a solid base, interesting characters, and an ongoing investigation that will bleed over into the next release. I thoroughly enjoyed this mystery and enjoyed living vicariously through Lena. She lives out every reader or aspiring writers dream.

No doubt about it, I am definitely on board for the next installment. I can see this series becoming one of my favorites, if things continue on at this pace.

Overall, this is an excellent beginning for this new series. This book will appeal to a wide range of mystery lovers, but especially to those who enjoy clean reads and cozy mysteries.
