It's National Library Week, and the Athena Public Library is planning an exhibit to honor the centenary of famous novelist Electra Barnes Cartwright - creator of the beloved Veronica Thane series.
Charlie has a soft spot for Cartwright's girl detective stories (not to mention an extensive collection of her books!). When the author agrees to make a rare public appearance, the news of her whereabouts goes viral overnight, and series devotees and book collectors converge on Athena.
After all, it's rumored that Cartwright penned Veronica Thane stories that remain under wraps, and one rabid fan will stop at nothing - not even murder - to get hold of the rare books....

Miranda James has a very wonderful way of writing these mysteries that keep the reader wanting more! I highly recommend starting at the beginning of the series ... and be sure you have the next book ready to start because as soon as you finish one, you're going to want the next! Especially love Diesel! What a charmer!
I'm in the process of redoing all my reviews.
Imagine a deep sigh of disappointment. That's how I'm feeling about this series. I know. I know. "Sex sells." But I was so enjoying this series until the sex started creeping in. That's why I have always preferred juvenile and young adult fiction, a person could enjoy a good story without feeling uncomfortable. I'm not a prude. I just don't like reading about things that are better left in what used to be the privacy of other people's bedrooms. Other than that, the book was a fun read as always and Erin Bennett's narration kept up the pace of the story.
Have listened to series from beginning and am very much enjoying. Like the reader she does a nice job. My reason for lower rating of story this time, Vomit the author went into great!!! detail about a man vomiting. This did not really matter in story man gets drunk man vomits enough said! However she went on and on and on and on until I to wanted to vomit. Not sure if she was just filling the page or has some enjoyment in describing this event. So fair warning watch out if your eating dinner around chapter 26
Lose the cat, the cat noises, the litter box use, the eating, the cat's leg rubbing, and the stair climbing and there is little left. Too many tiring, unimportant, unnecessary, minute details
