Cat Latimer moves back to her hometown in Colorado after inheriting a Victorian mansion from her ex-husband. She lived in the home with Michael when they were married and both teaching at the local college. Still shocked that he left the house to her in his will, Cat plans to turn the home into a writer's retreat bed and breakfast. As the first group of writers arrives for a week-long retreat, Cat is struggling with some strong emotions. Living in the house again brings back memories of her marriage and her husband's infidelity. Then old feelings are rekindled when Seth, her former high school sweetheart, is hired to do renovations. World-famous author Tom Cook is attending the first retreat, giving Cat high hopes her new business venture will be successful. Those hopes are dashed when Cook is murdered in his room. To save her business and its reputation, Cat finds herself on the trail of a killer.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I couldn't put it down! The characters and plot are believable, and the story is well-written. The mystery was well-developed and engaging, with plenty of suspects, twists and turns. The two main sub-plots didn't take away from the mystery, but added to it. The book was nicely paced and spiced up with just a little bit of romance. The ending was unexpected and exciting, ending in an intriguing cliff-hanger.
A Story to Kill is set for release August 30th! The second book in this series follows in March 2017.
