A Story to Kill

A Cat Latimer Mystery, #1

“A Story to Kill” was a very fun book for me to read. The idea of remodeling a house always brings a lot of weapons to a murder scene. Especially When Cat got the house from her ex-husband. Who knows how shady he was. Add in the writer visiting the Bed and Breakfast and what a fun setting you get. What are they going to write about next? The mysterious death in the house? The crazy ex that set up booby traps for the new owner? All this was running through my head as I read this book. Then the author added in some romance and I was hooked. Who was the killer? Was it for book profits? Will Cat get her happy ending? I also liked Cat's uncle and thought that he added a nice touch to the plot. I enjoyed the ending and cannot wait for book 2.

Book Blurb for A Story to Kill

A new series from the author of the Tourist Trap Mysteries!

Former English professor Cat Latimer is back in Colorado, hosting writers’ retreats in the big blue Victorian she’s inherited, much to her surprise, from none other than her carousing ex-husband! Now it’s an authors’ getaway—but Cat won’t let anyone get away with murder…

The bed-and-breakfast is open for business, and bestselling author Tom Cook is among its first guests. Cat doesn’t know why he came all the way from New York, but she’s glad to have him among the quirkier—and far less famous—attendees.

Cat’s high school sweetheart Seth, who’s fixing up the weathered home, brings on mixed emotions for Cat…some of them a little overpowering. But it’s her uncle, the local police chief, whom she’ll call for help when there’s a surprise ending for Tom Cook in his cozy guest room. Will a killer have the last word on the new life Cat has barely begun?
