Clearview, TX's recently published romance writer decides to hold a romance writer's convention and a former town resident, now a celebrated cover model (think Fabio) is going to be the guest. However a guest writer is found dead and Sheriff Rhodes has to go to work to figure out who is responsible.
a good romantic mysteries I injoyed it very much
Sheriff Dan Rhodes of Blacklin County, Texas has a murder at a romance writers' convention on his hands. One of the most fun books in this always entertaining series.
This is the second book Ive read in this series with Sheriff Dan Rhodes. This story is rather tongue-in-cheek because it is about a romance writers convention taking place in Blacklin County. Everyone wants to write a romance novel or a murder mystery.
Because there are so many possible culprits, the interactions arent as snappy and the characters arent as well-defined as the other book I read. Significantly less interaction takes place between Rhodes and his wife, Ivy.
Blacklin County is still the scene of a bevy of eccentric characters. This time out, two characters die and Dan Rhodes comes closer to death than any person would want.
Two former residents of Blacklin County who have made it in photography (a la Fabio) or the literary world (as a published romance author), come back for a book signing and writers convention. It doesn't take long for passions and anger to flare. Before long, a fire tries to consume the building were the writers are meeting.
I listened to an audio version of this novel; reader George Guidall made this book come alive.
