As part of a blog tour organized by Great Escapes Virtual Book Tours, I recently had the pleasure of reading, Fatality by Firelight, by Lynn Cahoon.

Description

fatality-by-firelight-compCat Latimer’s Colorado bed-and-breakfast plays host to writers from all over. But murder is distinctly unwelcome . . .

To kick off a winter writing retreat, Cat and her handyman boyfriend, Seth, escort the aspiring authors to a nearby ski resort, hoping some fresh cold air will wake up their creative muses. But instead of hitting the slopes, they hit the bar—and before long, a tipsy romance novelist named Christina is keeping herself warm with a local ski bum who might have neglected to tell her about his upcoming wedding.

Next thing Cat knows, her uncle, the town sheriff, informs her that the young man’s been found dead in a hot tub—and Christina shows up crying and covered in blood. Now, between a murder mystery, the theft of a rare Hemingway edition, and the arrival of a black-clad stranger in snowy Aspen Hills, Cat’s afraid everything’s going downhill …

My Review

Having read A Story to Kill, I enjoyed reacquainting myself with Cat as she welcomes the participants of the second writers’ retreat into her home. I like Cat, she’s good-hearted and hard working. When a local man is killed and one of the writers is a suspect, Cat takes it upon herself to prove the young woman’s innocence.  The central plot – the murder – is resolved in a satisfying manner, with a few twists along the way.  At the same time, in a recurring intricate subplot, Cat continues to delve into her late ex-husband’s secrets and the mystery surrounding his death.  This was an enjoyable and well written mystery. I look forward to following Cat’s story in the future.

FTC Disclosure:   I received a complimentary copy of this book as part of this blog tour.  This has not affected the content of my review in any way.
