A Fatal Booking A Booklover's B&B Mystery by Victoria Gilbert

Hello my cozy friends, 

Today I am reviewing "A Fatal Booking” the 3rd instalment in the "A Booklover's B&B Mystery" series by Victoria Gilbert.
Victoria Gilbert’s third Booklover’s B&B Mystery, a treat for fans of Mary Daheim and Kate Carlisle, finds owner Charlotte Reed and her former spy neighbor, Ellen Montgomery, pitted against a tea-party poisoner.

Booklover Charlotte is delighted to welcome an eclectic group of guests to Chapters Bed and Breakfast for a book club retreat focused on fairy tales and classic children’s literature. But when one of the guests is poisoned at a Mad Hatter tea party, Charlotte realizes she’s fallen down a rather unpleasant rabbit hole
 
The victim – an opinionated busybody whose jewelry store sold original designs, along with some possibly “hot” merchandise – had plenty of enemies, spurring Charlotte and Ellen to offer their well-honed investigative skills to assist the local police. But as they delve deeper into each of the guest’s stories, they realize all of them had a motive, and the means, to close the book on the unfortunate victim.
 
Enlisting the aid of a few local residents, as well as their new ally, agent Gavin Howard, Charlotte and Ellen vow to reveal the truth, even if the path to any sort of happy ending is strewn with deadly danger.

I found myself engrossed in the story and reading it over a couple of days.  I loved the characters of Ellen and Charlotte and the bond that’s formed between them.  I also enjoyed where life is taking Charlotte as well as the rest of the Chapter’s family. 

Overall the mystery was entertaining, full of twists and turns as well as a few surprises.  I did guess the killer before Charlotte this time, but I loved putting the pieces together.

I can’t wait to read the next book and see how things are at Chapters B&B in Beaufort, North Carolina.

I highly recommend this book to all my cozy loving friends.
I requested and received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my OWN.
