Books from the Backlog - A Dark and Stormy Murder

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 Dark and Stormy Night by Julia Buckley

Blurb:  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...

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  While I've read the last couple of books in this series I've never read the first few and I think it would help me enjoy the series even more.


  1. Oh indeed and has an author in it and an admiring reader. Hope it is as good as it promises.

  2. I love the sound of this one! I hope you enjoy it.

  3. I really enjoyed this one! I haven't yet read further in the series, but I hope to. I hope you enjoy this one when you read it.
