A Plus One for Murder by Laura Bradford


Emma wanted her own business.  She's tried being a travel agent but that wasn't working out.  The old lady she visited said she should hire out as a friend.  She wasn't sure about that but Dottie has a few friends that call for appointments.  She finds out she likes the work.

Berkley and Net Galley let me read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published on December 7th.

She goes along as a friend with a man who is going to read poetry.  They eat, he goes up to speak and shortly thereafter he falls over dead.  He had a bad heart but that's not why he died.  He was poisoned.

Emma wants to leave it to the cops but her female friends don't want to do that.

There are several suspects.  It takes a long time to weed out who might have done it.  But Emma goes to brace the killer alone and almost dies...

It's not a large city but there was plenty of crime for those so inclined.

This was good read.
