Review: Buried in A Book by Lucy Arlington (A Novel Idea Mystery, #1)

Cozy Mystery



Release Date:
February 2012

At 45 years of age, Lila Wilkins gets her first pink slip. As a former newspaper journalist, she accepts a position as an internship at a literary agency called A Novel Idea. When a homeless aspiring author dies on her watch, she wonders exactly what she got herself into.

No one seems too concerned about a homeless person dying, but Lila is very concerned. She’s sure there is more to this story than meets the eye. Lila intends to find out exactly what’s going on.

In the meantime, her teenage son has declared he’s not going to college, her mother convinces her that she’s psychic and the local cop is easy on the eyes. Lila has much on her mind, starting with who killed the homeless guy.

Readers were introduced to quite a few characters but it’s all fun and all good. I enjoyed the quirkiness of each character and I loved the strength of the main character. I can’t wait to read more adventures of Lila. She looks to be a wonderful main character and amateur sleuth. I definitely need to read more of this series and I will – especially since I have them on my e-reader TBR.

I can see this will be a series that I will adore and want catch up on. I have the next two in my TBR and I definitely want to know what’s happening with these characters. Many twists and turns and much drama in this series!
