Maggie Kelly is a romance novelist who believes she is going crazy. Very bad things have been happening around Maggie ever since her fictional character, Alexandre Viscount Saint Just, came to life. Her every wish is his command. In this book, all of the contributing authors of a book entitled, 'No Secret Anymore,' have received dead rats in the mail, along with awful poetic messages, Maggie included. Two of the contributing authors end up dead, apparently from suicide. I really liked this book. It was an enjoyably funny, light, quick read. I will read more of the Maggie Kelly series, "cozy" mysteries with a bit of romance.
The Maggie series is great lite reading!
Love this series. Easy read, but fun.
I have been waiting for the two of them to get together! Yes, I hope there are more.
Mystery writer and amateur sleuth Maggie Kelly gets an unseasonable Christmas package in her fifth outing (after 2005's High Heels and Homicide), a blithe mix of romantic fantasy and whodunit plotting. With the help of the Viscount Saint Just (her fictional Regency Era creation miraculously come to life as a handsome, protective suitor), her ex-boyfriend, NYPD detective Steve Wendell, and her publisher, Bernice Toland-James, Maggie figures out she's not the only mystery writer to receive a dead rat and death threat in the mail. Maggie wonders about a recently deceased colleague, an apparent suicide, and her suspicion becomes alarm when another writer turns up murdered. Maggie's wit and Saint Just's antics will raise the holiday spirits of Michaels's fans.
