The Book Club Murders: The Oakwood Mystery Series - Leslie Nagel

See my full review (and more!) on my blog: Mystereity Reviews

Fantastic book!  I first heard about this book from a review on another site (unfortunately I can't remember who the reviewer was, so if it was you, thanks for the heads up!)  I thoroughly enjoyed The Book Club Murders, so much so that I turned around and read it again, just to see if I could pick up all the things I missed!

Great characters and a fast-paced plot sucked me in right from the the first chapter.  Guileless Charley and intense Marc are equally matched in the strong-willed and stubborn department.  While I thought their romance was a bit overwrought, it was cute and softened the story a little.  

And the plot! Full of red herrings, surprise twists and fast-paced action, it kept me guessing until the very end.  I loved how all the red-herrings were a plot thread in themselves, from Ronnie's problems to Wilson's secrets.  The Agathas and their secrets and tragedies added just the right amount of drama to give the plot lots of depth and dimension.   I have to ask, though: who shot the video at the crime scene? Did they ever investigate it?  Perhaps it will be in the next book...

Overall, an exceptional mystery and I can't wait for the next book in the series!  I definitely recommend this book as a must read.  

Thank you so much to Random House-Alibi and Netgalley for an advanced copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
