The Plot Is Murder (Mystery Bookshop)

The Plot Is Murder (Mystery Bookshop) - V.M. Burns Samantha “Sam” Washington and her husband Leon had dreamed of owning a mystery bookstore. Before Leon passed away, he made Sam promise to go forth with their dream. Sam is just days away from opening Market Street Mysteries, and has also started her second dream of writing a British historical cozy mystery. After enjoying her last day of teaching at the local high school, her family and friends throw her a party to celebrate the end of one chapter in her life and the beginning of a new one. The following morning when Sam lets her two poodles Oreo and Snickers outside, she finds Clayton Parker, the listing agent of her brownstone, dead on the ground. Detective Brad “Stinky” Pitt is assigned the case and he quickly sets his sights on Sam. Nana Jo Sam's grandmother moves in with Sam to help her solve the murder while also helping to keep her safe. Nana Jo gets her friends who call themselves the Sluething Seniors to help Sam and her investigate the victim’s death.

The characters were interesting and entertaining. The mystery plot had lots of twists and turns, and the mystery within a mystery was very clever. I can't wait for the next book in this great series

I got an ARC of this book from netgalley and Kensington Publishing.
