    Another hit series for Amy LIllard!

    Sugar Spring, Mississippi’s famous son, Wally Harrison, is heading home for a class reunion and book signing of his best selling book. A very good thing for Arlo and her business partner Chloe who own the local book store. It’s big doings for Sugar Creek and the girls are hoping the event will draw business to their new store. But Wally is back in town to do more than attend the reunion and sell some books, he wants to meet the son he walked away from ten years ago. An hour before the shop opens, Arlo gets a call from the police asking her to head into the store early, and she finds Wally laying dead in front of the store. It looks like Wally jumped off the roof of their building and committed suicide. But how did he get up there? Soon it looks more like murder than suicide and things don’t look good when Chloe appears to be the last person to have seen Wally alive after their early morning meeting. Can Arlo and the book club ladies save Chloe from being sent to jail for a murder she didn’t commit? They’ve got a set amount of time to find the killer while Arlo contends with her two high school sweethearts who are both come back to Sugar Spring. Life is about to get interesting in Sugar Spring! I adore the author’s Kappy King series and was excited to read this first book in her new series and was not disappointed. Can’t wait for the next visit to Sugar Creek.

    Delightful

    I believe Author Amy Lillard is magical to weave the words together of Can't Judge A Book by its Murder. The characters are phenomenal and the storyline is delightful to read. I'm fascinated with all the different ways this mystery took me through the novel. I highly recommend reading Can't Judge A Book by its Murder by Author Amy Lillard. This book is one of A Main Street Book Club Mystery and I'm looking forward to the next one. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley. This review is one hundred percent my opinion

    Enjoyable cozy mystery

    I've always enjoyed the Amish fiction that Amy Lillard writes, so when I saw that she wrote a non-Amish cozy, I knew that I had to read it. I LOVED it! Arlo co-owns a bookstore & coffee shop with her best friend, Chloe. When Chlie is arrested for murder, it is up to Arlo and her book club to find real murderer. The elderly ladies in the book club were hilarious!I also really liked the scenes with Faulkner and Auggie (bird & cat). Those scenes made me laugh. I also liked the fact that I did not guess the murderer beforehand. I can't wait for the next book! Thank you to Netgalley and Poisoned Pen Press for the ARC. All opinions expressed are my own.

    Smalltown cozy mystery

    Through NetGalley, I received a free copy of CAN’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS MURDER (Book 1 of the Main Street Book Club Mysteries) by Amy Lillard in exchange for an honest review. Arlo Stanley is a bookstore owner in Sugar Springs, Mississippi. With this year’s high school class reunion being attended by Sugar Springs’ most famous graduate, New York Times bestselling author Wally Harrison, Arlo is delighted to host a book signing for his newest release. Arlo is not so delighted when he shows up on her doorstop unannounced and dead as the proverbial doornail. Arlo is even less thrilled when police arrest Chloe, her business partner and the mother of Harrison’s illegitimate son, for the murder. Others in town have plenty motive to have done the deed: the surviving brother of a boy Harrison killed in a long-ago car accident, Harrison’s live-in mistress/assistant, and the betrayed wife. When it seems like law enforcement is willing to send Chloe to trial for the crime despite not really believing her guilt, Arlo enlists the assistance of her Friday Night Book Club to catch the real culprit. Before the end of the book, the entire town will be involved in the matter. I liked this book. This is a smalltown cozy mystery featuring a hometown girl running the local bookstore and a bevy of active seniors as sidekicks. There’s not any romance in this book, but it sets up one for the future. Arlo’s settled little life isn’t just shaken up by the murder but also by the recent return of her two serious high school boyfriends. Arlo chose the one she thought would stay, but he left and broke her heart. Now, they’re both back in town. Good start to the series.

    Fun cozy mystery

    I love the cover and anything to do with bookstores. And Arlo owns the only bookstore in the small town of Sugar Springs Mississippi. Former classmate Wally Harrison is a best selling author and is scheduled to do a book signing at the store, until he is found lying in a heap in front of it, dead. When Arlo’s co-owner and best friend Chloe is jailed for the crime Arlo is determined to prove her innocence. After all, Wally did have lots of enemies. I adored the three older ladies that formed the Friday Night Book Club. They loved Chloe and decided to help with the investigation. The book club started meeting nightly at the store and bringing food. The ladies were a little quirky but fun to listen to. As they discuss the crime they are joined by Arlo’s former boyfriend Sam, now a detective. I liked that the mystery stayed hidden right up to the end. I had no clue! This is the first in a new series, so I’m excited to know the three little ladies are gearing up for another mystery. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author but was not required to write a review positive or otherwise. All opinions are strictly my own.
