Romance is Murder, by Teri Barnett
Teri Barnett’s, Romance is Murder, is a fun, upbeat murder-romance that will have you turning pages with ease. This feel-good story–what, you say? Feel-good? That’s right. Canny Captain Morgan is tired of seedy Detroit and is ready to return to her small-town roots of Bijoux, MI. Thinking it will all be smooth sailing and great coffee cake, Morgan Hart can’t wait to fill her dad’s shoes at the local police department and take a break. But Bijoux’s not the same sleepy lakeside area she remembers. Now it’s cute, campy and filled with tourists. As she arrives, the first murder in a hundred years takes place, and some locals are looking at her as the reason why. Romance author’s bodies are starting to pile up, but the writers retreat at the Fire Fly hotel is still on, and so is the killer. Is it her high school rival, who is determined to make her look like a fool or her late husband’s murderer? Could it be the handsome book store owner, who sets her off right from the start? He did invite the victims. You won’t have any problem reading to find out ‘who done it.’ With the wit and savvy of Ivanovich and DeLeon, Barnett is on the right track with this delicious and murderous series.
