Addie left some painful memories behind in the big city, including the unsolved murder of her fiancé and her father's fatal c

Murder by the Book by Lauren Elliott is the first book in the cozy Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery series. Well, I'm going to call this one a cozy mystery as it does have the elements there but it also felt a bit like romantic suspense too. 

Addison Greyborne had not been having a good year before she moved to a small New England town that had been named for her ancestors back in Colonial times. Addie is still recovering from the murder of her finace, her father dying in a tragic accident and t

This was a light, fairly fast, mostly fun read, but very much a novice writer. Too many bitten lips & putting of a strand of hair behind an ear on the romance side, it called attention to itself and made the romantic scenes feel clunky to me. I liked the bookstore & the rare books aspect, the small town politics felt like one more layer complicating things. Many of the characters were stock, stereotypical without clear motivation or depth. I wanted to like this book more than I did, I th ...more

This is the debut cozy mystery for Lauren Elliott in the Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery series. I think the series and the author have promise. Addie Greyborne is a likable protagonist. She is observant, independent and looking for a place to heal from a number of tragedies that she has suffered. The secondary cast of characters is well developed and likable as well. The mystery is woven throughout the story but there is so much going on at times it is a little overwhelming just how many peop ...more

The first in a new series and new author for me. The story starts out with a lot of action but the narrative did not flow smoothly making difficult to follow at times. The number of characters introduced made it hard to follow the main line and needed more development. A lot of time was spent on the backstory. At one time I felt for the MC because of all the negative events that were occurring around her. There were things that occurred that I question.

Thank you to the publisher via Netgalley for giving me an ARC of this book.
This is a Small-Town cozy mystery with lots of coffee cups. It's an easy read and the characters were well written. I do look forward to reading the next one in this new series.

description I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It had a few issues here and there that ultimately affected my rating, but overall it was a pretty decent read. The mystery was fantastically written and definitely the high point of the book. It certainly had me guessing right until the end. I also enjoyed the small town setting. It also had great secondary characters.

Murder by the Book by Lauren Elliott was an engaging beginning to a new cozy series that I had difficulty putting down.

I thought Addie was a very strong and resourceful young woman who has managed to keep moving forward in spite of the tragedies in her past. Her new friend, Serena, totally captured me with her positive attitude and her friendship to Addie. I thought Ms. Elliott's descriptive writing introduced reader to the lovely small New England town.

Murder by the Book is a first in a new series that is engaging and has plenty of colorful characters.

The story started off with promise, but it began to get clunky and felt disjointed at times when discussing some of the back story and revealing each character (which there were a lot to keep track of). I like the relationship/friendship between Addie and Serena. It's fun and quite endearing. I also enjoyed the small-town setting and the bookshop.

There were a few implausible parts that if the same situations happened in real life, the story would be different. For example, a package is hidden, b

I have been looking forward to this cozy for months! I came across it on Amazon over the summer and was immediately intrigued by it. So I was thrilled at the chance to be able to review it early through NetGalley. It was a solid cozy. Good characters and an exciting mystery with several surprises kept me involved. The writing did seem a bit choppy at times and there was a lot going on in the mystery aspects. While I didn't love this story, I did enjoy it and will continue reading the next offeri ...more

This new series was a really fun read, there was a lot more suspense in this book than most cozies; it all began at the very beginning of chapter one, when Addie is almost run over by a speeding car. It gets very interesting from then on and doesn't slow down...Addie is part of her brand new town's past (or is she?), plus secrets, strangers, a possible romance and more make for a great and quick read - you won't want to put this one down. The only thing missing was a pet - maybe in book 2.

A wonderful read full of amazing characters! This book had me hooked from the first page. The mystery was well written, the characters were well rounded. Nothing was given away early, and the end game of the mystery was not one that you were able to guess. A book that I would read again and again.

This first in a new cozy mystery series hits the ground running! I like many things about this clever cozy mystery, beginning with the setting of a New England old/ rare books and curios bookstore. The mystery is complex, with plot twists that include outrageous treachery from those who were thought friends. The characters are detailed, especially Addie, who learns a few family secrets.
Addie has faced many crises in the past year. The most recent was that her great-aunt Anita Greyborne, who she

With MURDER BY THE BOOK, the new Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery Series gets off to an impressive start. The solidly drawn characters and a thoroughly complex plot make it one of my best reads of 2018.

Second, I am VERY glad that the audiobook was on Hoopla so I didn't pay money for that either [because I would so be returning it if I had paid good money for this].

Murder by the Book is the first book in Lauren Elliott’s Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery series and is an entertaining read. The mystery is interesting and the cast of characters well developed. Many implausible things take place during the investigation, and some of the characters seem to behave rather childishly for their age, although the main character is knowledgeable and observant. It’s hard to believe that a chief of police, would allow a non-professional at active crime scenes, let alo ...more

I won this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. Thank you to Goodreads, Kensington Publishing and Lauren Elliott for an ARC copy of the book. As always, an honest review from me.

What better than a book about books? Not much in my opinion. Murder by the Book centers around Addie who recently moved back to town and opened a bookshop. Previously she was in the business, along with her family, of selling, tracking down and authenticating rare books. Now she’s venturing out into business. The r

This first installment in this new series was entertaining. Addie is an independent, confident, no nonsense bookseller/sleuth. Her ambition shines in her store as well as outside of it. New-to-town Addie quickly makes friends...and enemies, while trying to solve mysterious happenings in her past and present.

I truly like Addie and wanted to spend time with her...especially in her shop, her home, and the tearoom next door. My only complaint is that it frequently felt like I was “told” an abundance

This is the first in a new series. I really wanted to love it as the premise was promising; however it was not a home run to me.
There was a bit too much going on with back story and multiple characters to keep track of. Addie was a character that I found a bit irritating. It felt as if she had been plunked into the town and way too much information and story was going on, without any build up.
I would read the next book but hope the story is a bit tighter and Addie is a bit more likeable.

Addie, an unlikable character I might say, has tragic deaths in her recent past and inherits a large home and money in a small town with her last name. Somehow she doesn't remember anything about the town or of her recently deceased great aunt, but decides to move to the town and open a store of curios and used books, both rare and valuable books. Then mystery and questionable murders happen seeming to revolve around her.
