Book Review: "Buried in a Book" by Lucy Arlington
After losing her job as a journalist at the age of forty-five, Lila Wilkins accepts an internship at A Novel Idea, a thriving literary agency in North Carolina. Being paid to read seems perfect to Lila, although it's difficult with the cast of quirky co-workers and piles of query letters. But when a penniless aspiring author drops dead in th... more »e agency's waiting room -- and Lila discovers a series of threatening letters -- she's determined to find out who wrote him off.
Lucy Arlington is a team of authors Ellery Adams and Sylvia May. I have a couple of books by Ellery Adams on my TBR shelf, but not Sylvia May. So this is a new author to me all around.
This is the first in a series (Novel Idea). It starts out with Lisa accepting a job as an intern after losing her job at a newspaper. There she is thrown into a mystery murder of a homeless aspiring author.
It had the typical cozy outline - heroine has a crush on cop as well as another male in the story. This character though I didn't enjoy the fact that she was so quick to accuse everyone. It was borderline annoying.
I hope the next in the next book she will have have more development.
I did enjoy this book and will continue to read. It was a nice quick read and it was hard to put down. I am looking forward to seeing more of the "ZACH attach" ( you will have to read it to understand) and more of the developing romance. =)
