'A Killer Plot' by Ellery Adams is the first cozy mystery I read. I had a faint idea what a 'cozy mystery' was and I knew I would like it, but I have to say.... I loved it!Olivia Limoges is the subject of constant gossip. Ever since she came back to town-a return as mysterious as her departure-Olivia has kept to herself, her dog, and her unfinished novel. With a little cajoling from the eminently charming writer Camden Ford, she agrees to join the Bayside Book Writers, break her writer's block, and even make a few friends...
But when townspeople start turning up dead with haiku poems left by the bodies, anyone with a flair for language is suddenly suspect. And it's up to Olivia to catch the killer before she meets her own surprise ending.
I loved how at the start of the book, you get to see what people think on Olivia Limoges, but I tend to disagree. Olivia really grew on me when she helped out some of her new made friends in the writers club.
The story didn't progress fast, but at a normal pace, you do not get five murdered people or so after each other, but the events are played out nicely in time during the book. It had some unexpected moments and I also loved getting to know more about Olivia's past.
Ellery has a nice writing style, so when you read, you get sucked into the story! Can't wait to read the other books in this series!
