Murder, She Edited

#4 in the "Deadly Edits" Series

featuring retired teacher turned "book doctor"

Mikki Lincoln and set in the Sullivan County

Catskills of New York State

 

Mikki unexpectedly inherits an abandoned farm in the countryside near Lenape Hollow. but it comes with a condition. She has to find, edit, and publish several diaries left behind by a previous owner. Simple, right? It should be . . . except that someone seems to be trying to stop her.

 

A stalker complicates Mikki's efforts to find the missing diaries. Is she just a fan of Mikki's old friend, a famous author of romance novels? Or does she have something more sinister in mind than correcting a few typos?

 

With a little help from her friends and her faithful cat, Calpurnia, Mikki sets out to unravel a mystery that has its roots in her own childhood.

 

From the reviewers:;

 

"A charming and resourceful seventy-something heroine, family relationships, friendship, plot twists, and an editing and proofreading frame will please cozy fans." (Booklist)
