Somebody Killed His Editor (Holmes and Moriarty, Bk 1)
Somebody Killed His Editor - Holmes and Moriarty, Bk 1 Author:Josh Lanyon Thanks to an elderly spinster sleuth and her ingenious cat, Christopher Holmes has enjoyed a celebrated career as a bestselling mystery writer. Until now. Sales are down and his new editor is allergic to geriatric gumshoes. On the advice of his agent, he reinvents his fortyish, frumpy, recently dumped self into the sleek, sexy image of a literar... more »y lion, and heads for a Northern California writers conference to try and resurrect his career. A career nearly as dead as the body he stumbles over in the woods.
In a weirdly deja vu replay of one of his own novels, he finds himself stranded in an isolated lodge full of frightened women and not a lawman in sight. Except for J.X. Moriarity, former cop and bestselling novelist. The man with whom he shared a one-night stand -- okay, maybe three -- long ago. The man who wants to arrest him for murder. A ruthless, stalking killer, or a hot, handsome ex-lover. Which poses the greater danger? It's elementary, my dear Holmes!« less
I liked this book a lot. Good mystery- lots of suspects secluded at a lodge in the woods with no way out! I really liked the main character- he was very sarcastic and some of the lines were quite hilarious. I wasn't particularly thrilled with the end- identity & motive of the killer, but it was still a good read that kept me guessing.

The writing was really well done and the story was interesting. I was looking for romance and if your looking for that, this is not the book for you. It is a mystery/suspense story and even though there is some interaction between the two heroes, it has a very minor part.
