This is the 9th installment in an ongoing series. The setting is a small resort town in North Carolina and the heroine is the owner of a mystery bookstore. Murder and mayhem seem to follow her wherever she goes. Usually I find these cozies to be fun and interesting reads. I am not sure what happened with this one. The quirky characters, all of whom I have adored in previous books, just annoyed the life out of me this time. There was not one character I particularly liked this time. The mystery itself was sort of interesting but there was at least one plot twist that was so forced, it was three shades of ridiculous.

I won't let this one sub-par book turn me off to the series. They have all been delightful and I hope that this one was just a fluke. ( )

This was a bit more complex than I expected, and although I enjoyed the Hilton Head setting, I'm not too big on amateur detectives, and there were far too many suspects---my head was spinning. The ending was splendid however, it really had me fooled. It's a good beach read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553572024, Mass Market Paperback)

One of America's most beloved mystery writers, Carolyn G. Hart, the Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award-winning author, returns to her original mystery
series that features Annie Darling, owner of the Death on Demand Bookstore, and her husband, Max, with Mint Julep Murder.

Normally, Annie Laurence Darling would be eagerly awaiting her trip to Head Island, where this year's Dixie Book Festival is being held. But this year Annie has agreed to be the author liaison to five authors honored with the much-coveted Dixie Book Festival Medallions, and she fears she is going to have her hands full juggling murderous egos. What Annie doesn't count on is the untimely death of ambitious Mint Julep Press publisher Kenneth Hazlitt. Hazlitt arrives at the Festival peddling a proposal for Song of the South, a trashy roman  clef that details the indiscretions of some famous Southern authors at a writers' conference--writers who more than resemble the Dixie Festival Medallion winners. When Hazlitt drops dead after drinking a hit of bourbon from his private stock, the evidence points to Annie--the fatal glass is imprinted with her fingerprints. As more and more evidence points her way, Annie and Max must act fast to catch a wily killer...before the police throw the book at Annie!
