The Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco: 08/24/16
The Readaholics and the Falcon Fiasco by Laura DiSilverio is the start of the new Book Club Mystery series. Amy-Faye lives in Heaven, Colorado where she runs a book club. They read a variety of different kinds of books and then watch the movie inspired by the book.
When she's not running her book club, she's an event planner. One of her book club regulars falls ill during their Maltese Falcon night. Amy-Faye has the bad luck of finding her near death the next day. The authorities want to call it a suicide but the book club ladies know better.
As the book is set in Colorado, right on the heals of me reading Knit One, Kill Two [LINK] by Maggie Sefton I ended up conflating the two series. DiSilverio's series is set in Heaven and she includes tons of fascinating details behind the town's name and it's recent name change.
This first offering is a little rough around the edges but most series starts are. It's a good blend of the things I like from the Presley Parker party planner series by Penny Warner and the Goldy Bear catering series. As I've read both those series to completion, it's nice to have something new to fill that gap.
