"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

A KILLER PLOT by Ellery Adams

A BOOKS BY THE BAY MYSTERY
Release Date June 1, 2010 Paperback and Kindle

A new series set in Oyster Bay, North Carolina, where Olivia Limoges returns to her home town after many years away, her return as mysterious as her leaving has everyone in town is talking about her. She keeps to herself, with her talented dog Captain Haviland and is working on her unfinished manuscript, unfortunately at the moment she is suffering from a severe case of "writer's block".  At the local diner she meets charming young man, Camden Ford, and with a little help from diminutive Dixie the waitress, she agrees to join The Bayside Book Writers where she actually makes a few friends.

Sadly one of her new friends ends up dead in an alley with an obscure Haiku poem left with his body and his will not be the only body found before this mystery is solved.  Olivia enlists the help of The Bayside Book Writers to help the police find the killer.

This is a really fun mystery, there are so many quirky characters, and a captivating plot.  We learn enough about Olivia's past and her potential romances that will keep us wanting more stories from Oyster Bay.  I am terribly jealous of Captain Haviland as my 2 dogs can barely sit still for a minute let alone help sniff out a killer.  Please Ellery don't make us wait too long for another visit with Olivia and the people of Oyster Bay.

Thanks for the review! I have already turned in Book 2, which is tentatively entitled, A DEADLY CLICHE and am hard at work on book 3. My favorite think about writing this series is being able to insert creative writing pieces from other genres. I hope your readers enjoy meeting this quirky group of writers. :) Ellery
