#BookReview for Fiction Can Be Murder (Mystery Writer's Mystery #1) by Becky Clark


Mystery author Charlemagne "Charlee" Russo thinks the twisty plots and peculiar murders in her books are only the product of her imagination--until her agent is found dead exactly as described in Charlee's new, unpublished manuscript. Suspicion now swirls around her and her critique group, making her confidence drop as severely and unexpectedly as her royalty payments.

The police care more about Charlee's feeble alibi and financial problems than they do her panicky claims of innocence. To clear her name and revive her career, she must figure out which of her friends is a murderer. Easier said than done, even for an author who's skilled at creating tidy endings for her mysteries. And as her sleuthing grows dangerous, Charlee's imagination starts working overtime. Is she being targeted, too?

About the Author:  
A highly functioning chocoholic, Becky Clark (Denver, CO) is the seventh of eight kids, which explains both her insatiable need for attention and her atrocious table manners. She likes to read funny books so it felt natural to write them, too. She published her first novel in 2001, and is a sought-after speaker. 

Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟
My Review: Can I explain how happy I was that I got to go back and read this book?  I recently read book two without this one and now after reading this one I have to say that my review for book is totally going to change.  Anyway this one was a great story!! 

I love mysteries and this one was great.  This was a very fun read and I loved all the details I got while reading.  At times it was a little slow but that didn't take away from the story at large.  I do wished it would have been a little longer though.  This really reminds me of the mystery murder movies that are on Hallmark.  And it was one that I could not put down.  I loved how Charlee works through the murder and how everything turned out.  

If you love murder mysteries check this one out!
