A Killer Read

For the first meeting of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society, six friends gather in Molly Matthews's old Southern mansion-including Lizzie Turner, a reading specialist with a penchant for mysteries. But the mystery book club meeting becomes the scene of an actual murder when a stranger is shot-and nobody knows who the victim is, or how Molly' antique gun came to be used as the murder weapon.
Then Lizzie begins finding mysterious manuscript chapters in her mailbox. As she and the book club members try to read between the lines, Molly surfaces as the next name on the killer's list...

An outstanding first book in Erika Chase's new Ashton Corners Book Club mystery series featuring a cast of characters I would love to be in a book club with. Lizzie is a great protagonist with a sad family history, an unusual occupation, and 2 beautiful Siamese cats I hope to see more of in future books. And I *love* the weapon Lizzie ended up using when defending herself against the killer at the end...you'll just have to read the book to find out what it is. It will make all mystery lovers smile.
