 Synopsis from https://www.goodreads.com/

Restaurant owner and aspiring novelist Olivia Limoges is happily enjoying her new marriage. Sadly, the same doesn’t hold true for Laurel, a fellow Bayside Book Writer. While struggling with a demanding job, twin boys, and a terminally ill mother-in-law, Laurel learns that her perfect marriage is mostly fictional.

 When she catches her husband fooling around with his mother’s hospice nurse, she issues impassioned threats that will later come back to haunt her. After the nurse meets a deadly denouement, Chief Rawlings is forced to take Laurel into custody.

 While Olivia protests the arrest, the rest of the Bayside Book Writers become a group divided, with Rawlings and Harris on one side and Olivia and Millay on the other. Now the women must race against the clock to prove that Laurel’s not the sort for murder before her story ends in tragedy…


My Review

Killer Characters had me hooked from the first chapter. Ellery pens relatable, real-life characters that make you care. The plot was outstanding and filled with drama for this last book in this series. 

This was the first book I read in the series and it being the last I don't regret reading it. It was heart felt and suspenseful. Get some tissues handy you will need them.
