As a fan of this series I’ve really been looking forward to LAW AND AUTHOR. I was not disappointed! Author Erika Chase has written another wonderful story in the Ashton Corners Book Club Mystery series.

This series has one of my favorite groups of characters. Lizzie Turner and the other members of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society had a lot on their hands in this one when murder hits to close to the group.

Ms. Chase certainly knows how to write a fantastic story. Once I opened this book and started reading this amazingly well plotted mystery, I found myself being drawn in deeper and deeper until the room around me disappeared and I was completely enmeshed in the world of Ashton Corners loved every second of it right up to the exciting reveal!

LAW AND AUTHOR serves to prove that this series just keeps getting better with every story.

And I just have to mention that I love that Ms. Chase starts each chapter with a quote from a book along with the title and the author. What a great tribute to those authors. Plus it’s a great way for readers to add to their TBRs!

Check out the back of the book for each character’s reading list, and an excerpt from a brand new series by Linda Wikin aka Erika Chase! ( )

Law and Author is the fifth book in the An Ashton Corners Book Club Mystery series.

This reader enjoys stopping in to visit with the members of Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straw Society. You can always count on some tasty food and interesting book talk, in addition to solving a mystery.

The book club is just beginning their meeting when there is a knock on Molly's door. At the door is a young lady, Darla Lyman, who claims to be the granddaughter of Bob Miller. Bob is off on a fishing trip, but Darla is invited in so they can get to know her. When Bob returns, he is very shocked, as he has been divorced from his wife for a number of years and has no contact with since the divorce. Molly invites her to stay with her while she and Bob gets to know each other. Then a few days later, Lizzie happens to see Darla being pulled into an alley, the man then appears to about hit her, but stops and walks away. The next the man is found in the backyard of Molly.

It's time for the book club members to put on their sleuthing hats and find out who the man was and who might have had reason to want him dead. Once again all the members put their heads together to track down the killer.

Will be watching for the next opportunity to spend time with the folks in Ashton Corners. ( )
