It's that simple.

I'm also joining in Book Beginnings on Friday. It's hosted by Rose City Reader

I'm hoping to read this novella soon.  It's part of a paranormal cozy mystery series that I've been enjoying.

First Chapter

"Paige?  Where are you?

I popped up from behind the counter, and Glo threw up her arms and let out an impressive horror-movie worthy scream.  I laughed at her actions, which only made it worse.  I bent over, held my gut, and laughed until I snorted.

From Chapter 56% on my e-reader... 

'We're simply dying to  know what you saw!" said Sebastian.  "Give us the dirt!"

Synopsis from Goodreads:

This club gets whooshed into a book. They become characters! To get out they must find the killer.

~ ~ ~

Whenever this group chooses a book, magic happens. The mystery comes to life, and they find themselves part of the story. To exit the book and get back home, they need to solve the mystery and reach The End.

This time, the club chooses a book set in a mansion atop the mountains of Arizona. They discover a strange antique oil lamp that contains a shocking surprise.

Could this enchanted lamp have something to do with their host’s fall from a door to nowhere? Or could he have been pushed out the door by one of the strange people who belong to the quirky group who live here?

This brave, crazy, motley group must work together to unravel the mystery in their latest inside-the-book journey.

This novella can be read as a standalone. It happens between books 4 and 5 in the Magical Mystery Book Club series.
