Johnson is a member of the Readaholics book club, as well
as an event planner whose latest assignment is coordinating
the Celebration of Gothic Novels in Heaven, Colorado. It will
be a weekend event with several authors, readers and even
uninvited guests. There will be an auction and even a story
themed costume party is sure to be a hit, Amy hopes, despite
a few problems at the story writing contest. Yet it's not
every costume party that results in someone yelling “Catch
that nun.” Nor does one expect to see an officer of
the law working a crime scene while dressed as Batman. Murder
is afoot making this gothic scene even spookier than it was
and the Readaholics must pool their talents to suss out the
killer before he or she strikes again!
nothing quite like a cozy mystery with a Gothic feel to it.
The author has a flair for setting the atmosphere to draw
the reader into the midst of the mystery. While I wish I'd
already read the two previous books in the series, this was
fine as a standalone read. I really liked the book a lot and
highly recommend it to cozy lovers. Especially if you have
a taste for the gothic in you, too!
find yourself wanting to turn page after page as you delve
deeper into the mystery that unites Gothic classics with modern
small town mysteries. Delightfully eerie, set aside a rainy
gloomy weekend to read this one!
