Author: Carolyn Hart
Series: Book 25 Death on Demand
Publisher: Berkley
Source: Received for Review from Publisher
Format: Hard Cover
Genre: Mystery
Rating: Five Stars
Reviewed by: Tina


I honestly went into this book with mixed feelings. I knew it was not going to be a typical cozy mystery that I was used to but something about the synopsis drew me in. To say that I was captivated from the very start would be an understatement. Don't go home is what is called a "traditional mystery". The characters especially Annie and Max had me from the very start, they tugged on my heart strings and just would not let go.

Annie owns Death on Demand , a mystery bookstore. She is asked by best selling author Alex Griffith's wife, Rae to host a book reading and party at the Seaside Inn Annie accepts until she reads an article in the Broward's Rock Gazette. in it Alex says that at this party he is going to reveal the inspiration and the people behind his characters in his current best selling book Don't Go Home.
Who just all happen to live on Broward's Rock Alex's former home town.

Everyone is to attend but with fear and apprehension of what Alex has to say and about whom. Annie's friend, Marion gets into a intense argument with Alex before Alex is found murdered in his hotel room. Even after Annie's husband, Max who is away on a trip warns her to stop being a sleuth . Annie can't help but being drawn in since she is Marion's friend and does not want to see her go to prison. Everyone that was the inspiration in the book had a reason to want Alex dead and Annie wants to make sure the right person is brought to justice.

Beautifully descriptive and truly captivating. Soulful, deep and enchanting with no escape until you look up from reading the book. A hypnotizing story with  complex, and riveting characters. So many secrets and lies they are sometimes hard to keep straight. Annie and Max's love story is a haunting tale to be told. This was the first book in this series I read and I was not disappointed and I will be sure to read more in this enchanting series
