Book Review ~ Every Trick in the Book by Lucy Arlington ~ 6/1/17

  The national bestselling Novel Idea Mysteries return with Lila Wilkins, who has just been promoted to full-time literary agent. But great new writers aren’t the only people she’s trying to catch…Lila Wilkins has it all: the home of her dreams in the charming town of Inspiration Valley, North Carolina; a perfect police officer boyfriend; and a new job she absolutely loves. At the Book and Author Festival, which is sponsored by the Novel Idea Literary Agency, Lila expects to discover some talented new authors, but what she finds instead is the body of an editor to whom she bears an eerie resemblance.

Trouble is, the editor’s death isn’t the only literary murder taking place. Soon a blossoming author is also killed, and Lila has a gut feeling that the two murders are linked. Now she must hunt down the dark figure who killed these women—and to her surprise, she just might find the clues hidden in a manuscript…

My Thoughts:
 This is the second book in the "Novel Idea Mystery" series.  To read my review of book one, "Buried in a Book" click HERE.
I was excited to get book 2 of this series because I enjoyed the first book so much.  So many literary references and reading is the main subject.  What's not to love?
I read this book in a day and stayed up late to finish it.  I was hooked, again.
I especially loved the idea of a festival centered around books.  I would love to go to one.  They even had a costume party where the guests dressed up like literary characters.  How fun!
The mystery itself was great.  There were so many twists and turns and I couldn't for the life of me figure out where the teddy bear came into play (just a sneak peak)!
I'm loving this series and can't wait to get my hands on the next book :)
