My TBR shelf is over flowing and I should really be reading some non fiction stuff to put together a curriculum for my geography cum history/literature class this fall and yet while my book is out for beta I couldn’t help but binge on fun reading. Like The Readaholics and the Poirot Puzzle by Laura DiSilverio. Readaholics? Oh yeah. Agatha Christie reference? double check check.
The Poirot reference isn’t the only thing Christiesque about the book. It went down smooth, like creme caramel sliding off the spoon, tantalizing your tongue before landing lightly on your belly. Well this book slid gently off the page, tantalizing my eyes before landing lightly on my brain and dissipating.
Amy Faye, the main character, has her hands full, with a book club that reads only mysteries (Can I join?) and then watches the movie made of them. Her own event planning business. A hot new love interest. And her brother’s new brew pub – she’s handling the opening. Nothing like a murder to mar an event.
I read this in one day, partly thanks to the hubs who took the kiddo to the pool for 3 hours, hello found reading time. But I might have anyway since when options arose, I opted to keep my nose in this creme caramel, each time, til it was done. And yes, I scraped the bottom of the bowl. Then went online to order the first book in the series. LOL
℘℘℘℘℘ – Five Pages for the sheer joy of this total fluff.
PS. Just finished the first one, Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco, also fabulous.
