Publishable By Death (St. Marin's Cozy Mystery Series Book 1) Kindle Edition
All Harvey Beckett wants to do is help the residents of St. Marin's find the perfect book for that moment, snuggle with her hound dog Mayhem, and be ignored by her cat Aslan. But when the small, waterside town's newest resident discovers the body of the community's persnickety reporter in her bookshop storeroom just before her grand opening, Harvey can't help trying to solve the crime, even when it might cost her business and her life. The more questions Harvey asks, the more secrets she uncovers.
Will Harvey and her friends be able to solve the murder of the town reporter without her becoming a victim herself?
This book addresses racism in both the plot and the writing style.

None of the characters have their own 'voice'. They're all so bland and uninteresting, while being perfect little do-gooders too. The sad thing is, the backdrop of the murders is an interesting story, but it lost out to dog walks, cheesy romance and paragraphs about the author's favourite books.
I got this book for free. Very glad I didn't pay anything for it.
There's no suspense, no character development, hardly any sense of place, and very little actual mystery. The murders seem after-thoughts to the main narrative that goes on for pages about how the heroine launches her book store to great success in just 3 weeks (to the point that she's able to hire an assistant manager!) with a number of very unlikely co-incidences. Complete with the obligatory "help" who makes the best baked goods and coffee in the state.
The murder motive is completely unbelievable, as is the sleuthing style of the main characters. Just a lot of wandering about and jumping to conclusions. And as for the half-baked romance... oh dear.
I won't be bothering with No 2.
