Molly Matthews, who owns a bookstore aptly named “A Novel Plot,” is planning her first annual Mystery Book Fair. The crew of the Ashton Corners Mystery Readers and Cheese Straws Society are all hands on deck to help.

An unwelcome surprise is the attendance of one Ashley Dixon, a book publicist with a certain club member has a history. The club member, Lizzie Turner, promptly becomes suspect number one when Ashley is killed. The mystery readers are just the right team to dig through the clues, uncover Ashley’s past and clear Lizzie’s name.

If you love a good southern mystery, full of witty dialogue, characters you would want to be friends with, and the unusual bonus of a reading list from each of the book club members, you will not want to miss “Book Fair and Foul.”

Erika Chase is also known as Linda Wiken, and she owned a mystery bookstore in Canada, thus giving her the perfect background for writing a good mystery about books! She has a new series, written as Linda, coming out in 2015. Berkley Prime Crime will also publish the Culinary Capers Mysteries.

Take it from me, the Ashton Corners series is fantastic, and if you want a fast-paced, well-plotted summer read, Book Fair and Foul is your ticket to a summer day’s reading escape. Enjoy!
