  • How bad could it be I thought, as I ordered it from This book s protagonist is an independently wealthy woman who owns a restaurant, one character owns a bookstore, and other people, who originally started meeting as a writers group, try to help solve a crime.Not good enough There are two gay characters whom the author appears to like, but who are so stereotyped that they drove me crazy The worst part is the language The author was born and grew up on Long Island Sound thus eliminating the excus [...]



  • Olivia Limoges grew up in Oyster Bay, NC, but went to live with her grandmother after her mother was killed in an accident and her father disappeared She returns after an extended absence and is the subject of much gossip surrounding the circumstances of her departure from, and return to, Oyster Bay Olivia pretty much keeps to herself aside from her dog, Captain Haviland Yeah, the dog s a captain and her restaurant and other real estate holdings She ends up being cajoled into joining a fledgling [...]


  • Im pretty torn with my thoughts on this book It started out with a really good bang and then midway through, it fell flat I had a hard time connecting with the main character being that she is 40ish, filthy rich and the topic of the town gosip She takes her dog everywhere with her, without reprocussion, and about every 2 3 pages shes feeding her poodle some gawd awful garbage enough to give anyone a heart attack The poodle however was probably the best character here Hes well mannored obeys ever [...]


  • BotD A Killer Plot Books by the Bay 1 by Ellery Adams Great plot, just enough twists to keep me off track but not for me to lose interest The main protag, Olivia, is certainly interesting as is the rest of the Bayside Book Writers Can t wait to see further character development Love the town and the quirky supporting cast, they add wonderful seasoning Last, but definitely not least, Captain Haviland black, standard poodle make a delightful sidekick.



  • 3.5, rounded down A pleasant cozy, which read quickly It was good for giving me breaks from some heavier tougher emotionally reads A nice set up, but with 3 dead bodies in a relatively small town, the crime statistics are going to go haywire faster than in St Mary s Mead or Cabot Cove Our protagonist has a prodigy of a standard poodle and joins a writing group from which we get treated to samples of various writing genres She has a somewhat tragic past with her town but has made good since Chara [...]


  • Loved this book Although I wasn t too fond of the protag at first, I learned about her and came to like her There s plenty of room to grow and I look forward to seeing what happens to the town, our heroine and her friends in the next book.


  • If you pick this book up, please continue reading, Olivia does grow on you, I promise.When I first started this, I was thinking I am not going to like this, not one little bit, this Olivia is not my people but she grew on me, and by the end I liked her, quite a bit actually her dog and her were a bit much for me, and I m sensing a love triangle in the future, but other than that this was a really good book The mystery was interesting, I liked how they threw in the haiku poem and I definitely did [...]

  • This book rates a superb from me which I guess equals A or 5 stars.A new author is now on my list of watching for the next release The mystery was murders However, they were done in a surprisingly unconventional way You think you know who has done it butyou are in for a surprise Also the characters were well formed and you pick up favorites from the very frist page I learned of this book from a cozy group but, I would suggest that those who enjoy soft boiled murders will also enjoy this one I pu [...]


  • I have wanted to read this series for awhile but unfortunately it was not all that I had hoped for My main problem with this book was the protagonist To put it plainly she was a snob It was not because she only like certain coffee or nice things I could have overlooked that stuff it was the fact that she looked down on others that I could not get past I loved the setting and some of the supporting characters and the actual mystery was also intriguing Since I am a character driven reader I just w [...]


  • I won this book in a giveaway and I have to say it s probably not something I would have normally picked to read That however, is what s so great about giveaways, I ended up really enjoying this book The characters and the small town remindeded me of Murder She Wrote or even The Gil Girls I am the owner of three dogs, and loved the interaction between Olivia and her poodle I am looking forward to the second in this series This is a perfect summer read, I ve already passed it on to my hairdresser [...]

  • So, this one took its time for something to happen I wasn t sure if I wanted to continue since I was in the mood to read it But I kept going, liking the main character Olivia and started warming up to the other characters And of course it had to have a writing group and a bookstore in there Book you know me so well Anyway, the pace, writing, setting and its characters was really good and kept me reading Especially the mystery and of course Olivia s poodle, Haviland Sorry I mean Captain Haviland [...]

  • Rating 3.5 out of 5 starsIt seems that May has been the month of mysteries for me.Although I ended up liking the story, it took me a while to connect with, and feel for the characters For one thing, the main character, Olivia, did not start out as a likable person, which made sense, but it also made it harder for me to get into the story Secondly, I felt that there were too much details at the beginning that made the story lag, and again, this may have been because I couldn t connect with the ch [...]


  • A Killer Plot by Ellery Adams was an intriguing beginning to this series for me The characters were developed enough for me to want to know about them The murders were unrelated or so it seemed which meant that I had to keep listening reading to find out exactly what and who was causing the havoc in Oyster Bay, North Carolina Ms Adams descriptive narrative kept me in Oyster Bay and wishing that I could visit myself.


  • I really enjoyed this one it is much cerebral than most cozies and the feeling and emotions that Olivia has and works hard to hide just make the reader and her new friends want to know about her I love the setting as well the joys of a small coastal town that is over run in the summer and bands together off season is a delightful change from some of the other series that I read I look forward to reading in this series.



  • A Killer Plot is the first book in the Books by the Bay mystery series by Ellery Adams, set in the present day along the North Carolina coast The cover picture includes a lighthouse with a glimpse of the ocean, which attracted my interest to the series I was disappointed by the small role the coastline setting plays in the story metal detector sweeps on the beach I disliked protagonist Olivia Limoges from her introduction in the first scene, where she crushes fellow shoppers groceries because sh [...]

  • This was a 3.5 star for me I liked this beginning to the series, but didn t love it Fortunately I read the 2nd book before this one and enjoyed it , so I know there s hope for growth in the series.Olivia just didn t jive with me at the start of this book She seemed overly snobbish and haughty in her isolation This definitively changes as she makes friends in town, but her attitude is very cold and it makes it hard to read without rolling her eyes Her absolutely obsession with her dog is over the [...]
