Books from the Backlog - A Killer Read


Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long! 

Goodreads:  A Killer Read by Erika Chase

Blurb:  For the first meeting of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society, six friends gather in Molly Mathews's old Southern mansion-including Lizzie Turner, a reading specialist with a penchant for mysteries. But the mystery book club meeting becomes the scene of an actual murder when a stranger is shot--and nobody knows who the victim is, or how Molly's antique gun came to be used as the murder weapon.

Then Lizzie begins finding mysterious manuscript chapters in her mailbox. As she and the book club members try to read between the lines, Molly surfaces as the next name on the killer's list...

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  I'm trying to read a book from every state and somehow have missed a book from my home state (Alabama).  This book has multiple advantages - I already own it, it takes place in Alabama, and just reading the blurb makes me want cheese straws!


  1. This looks good, I love the setting and premise.

  2. I will wait to see what you think of it.

  3. I think I may have this one on my TBR pile too! I hope you do read it and enjoy it. I am glad it fits into your state challenge too!
