From the New York Times bestselling author of Writing All Wrongs , it's a rotten state of affairs in Oyster Bay, and the Bayside Book Writers are out to end a nasty plot...

Restaurant owner and aspiring novelist Olivia Limoges is happily enjoying her new marriage. Sadly, the same doesn't hold true for Laurel, a fellow Bayside Book Writer. While struggling with a demanding job, twin boys, and a terminally ill mother-in-law, Laurel learns that her perfect marriage is mostly fictional. When she catches her husband fooling around with his mother's hospice nurse, she issues impassioned threats that will later come back to haunt her.

After the nurse meets a deadly denouement, Chief Rawlings is forced to take Laurel into custody. While Olivia protests the arrest, the rest of the Bayside Book Writers become a group divided, with Rawlings and Harris on one side and Olivia and Millay on the other. Now the women must race against the clock to prove that Laurel's not the sort for murder before her story ends in tragedy...

I enjoyed this series until this book. Too dark.

I think this may be the best thing she has written. She definitely moves past the cozy mysteries she has written in the past and her other two current series which I have tried but found wanting. Too many mysteries never get below the surface. This does.

I hated the ending to this book. I liked the rest of the series but I am sorry I read this book. It's rare for me to wish I could unread something.

If you are in the least depressed do not read this book. From the beginning to end Ellery Adams created a world of betrayal, agony and sorrow. I've enjoyed every book in "The Books by the Bay" series but this newest installment I should have skipped. The only redeeming message was the importance of friendship but that was all. I don't know where Ms. Adams head was when she wrote this gloomy book but clearly she was not in a good place when she did.
