Marriage and Murder are the Focus of Victoria Gilbert's Latest Cozy Mystery: A DEADLY EDITION

by Donna Huber

Victoria Gilbert is back with book 5 in the Blue Ridge Library Mystery series. In A Deadly Edition, Richard and Amy are preparing for their nuptials but when a body turns up dead at a pre-wedding party will Amy have time to solve the murder and get married?

Even though this is book 5, it can easily be read as a stand-alone. I started the series with book 3, Past Due for Murder (read my review), and I read book 4, Bound for Murder (read my review). Even so, I have found them to be very self-contained, and enough background is sprinkled throughout to help the new reader connect with the characters.

I know a lot of books coming out right now are focused on winter and the holidays, but if you are looking for something to read that isn't connected to the season but is still light-hearted, then A Deadly Edition is perfect for you. It is set in spring and there's really no tension-filled danger. I did start figuring out things, like who the "big bad" was, about two-thirds of the way through but the full picture reveal where all the connections are explained was still enjoyable.

This series reminds me a lot of Jenn McKinlay's Library Lover's Mystery series, so if you are a fan of that series and haven't tried Victoria Gilbert's Blue Ridge Library Mysteries then what are you waiting for? Start with A Deadly Edition or go back to the beginning - either way, you are sure to be entertained.
