Bookmarked for Murder by V.M. Burns – Blog Tour & Giveaway

Synopsis:

Amateur sleuth Samantha Washington’s shopping trip to Chicago takes a deadly detour when a man is murdered on her bus . . .

After some post-Christmas retail therapy in the Windy City, mystery bookshop owner and historical whodunit novelist Sam Washington is returning home to North Harbor, Michigan, on a chartered bus. With Nana Jo and her gal pals Irma, Dorothy, and Ruby Mae from Shady Acres Retirement Village along for the ride, it’s a lively trip. But one passenger is not so lively—a gentleman Irma befriended is found dead in his seat after an unscheduled stop. The ladies immediately shift gears to find out who punched his ticket, while Sam slips into the driver’s seat to make sure Nana Jo and her crew steer clear of fatal conclusions . . .

When a man is found dead on the bus Irma and her gang of friends are on coming home after a shopping trip in Chicago,  she can’t help but start digging around. The murder taking place on a bus makes for an interesting locked-room style mystery and makes nearly everyone on board a suspect.

I really enjoyed this book. There’s a mystery bookshop, a writer, and a great cast of characters that I wish I could jump in the book and meet for coffee. The mystery itself was well written and kept me guessing. This story had so many wonderful elements that I will definitely be looking for more books from this author.

Bookmarked for Murder is book #5 in the Mystery Bookshop series. It’s the first I’ve read, but now I’m wondering why! I will be going back to catch up on this series. If you haven’t started it yet, you can still jump in here and get a good feel for the characters.
