My first Carolyn Hart and loved every minute of it. The characters are rich and I want to get to know them better. Will read many more of her stories. Crazy about Annie and Max.

First in the Death on Demand series. Annie runs a bookstore in SC. There's always an interesting contest to name mystery writers in her books. And I've "discovered" a lot of new authors to check out from books she mentions in this series.

First in this great series, set in the Death on Demand bookshop. Multiple murder suspects who all happen to be mystery writers. A fun plot with engaging characters. Recommended!

A fantastic begining to a delightful series. How can you not like a mystery set within a bookstore? The characters Annie and Max are wonderfully written, the mystery was well thought out and although there were no real big surprises within the book it kept you wanting to continue to read to see what Annie and Max would come across next. I definitely will read more in this series.

Annie Laurence finds herself smack in the middle of a murder investigation, and the prime suspect as well, after a member of her Sunday Night Regulars writer's group is murdered in her bookstore.
I really liked the characters, they were rich,colorful and she was able to bring them to life, and her relationship with Max is humorous and sweet.
The only thing I could have done without, or at least a little less of, was all of the references to the multitudes of authors, characters and titles of mystery novels that are packed to the rafters in the book. I am okay with the name dropping, don't get me wrong. I even found a few authors I may check out, but every other page is scattered with names, plots and, on occasion, the solution to other mysteries like a rain storm on a clear summer day.
It's a nice touch and adds to Annie's character, but I'd like to see a little less of it, it was just distracting after awhile.
It was a true whodunnit, and I really did enjoy this book.
