Description

"Cold-blooded murder is, like, totally un-cool As the wildly successful darling of the publishing industry, chick lit mystery writer Kimberlee Kalder is the guest of honor at an exclusive writers' conference at Dalmorton Castle in Scotland. But jealousy and resentment are soon replaced with shock when Kimberlee is found dead at the bottom of the castle's bottle dungeon. Who didn't want to see prima donna Kimberlee brutally extinguished like one of her ill-fated characters? It's up to Detective Chief Inspector St. Just to track down the true killer in a castle full of cagey mystery connoisseurs who live and breathe malicious murder and artful alibis . . . "

Professional reviews

"This is a classic story of murder at a country house--but with the twist that most of the suspects are crime writers. It's full of clichŽs but deliberately self-mocking. This enjoyable cozy is set in Scotland, making Davina Porter the perfect choice to portray the British characters. It's a pity, however, that some of her American voices sound surprisingly English. In one instance, the character only begins to sound American halfway through. It's worth a listen, though, just for the short extract from one of the hotel employees' own attempts at crime writing: a murder mystery set in prehistoric times. It's in complete contrast to the successful murder/chick-lit novel, DYING FOR A LATTE, that is much discussed and loathed throughout. C.A.T. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
