    Lynn Cahoon’s Slay In Character

    A fast paced, action packed Murder mystery in Outlaw Town, Colorado. Cat Latimer is hosting a writer’s retreat in Aspen Hills, Colorado. Cat has her crew which consists of Shauna, her boyfriend, Seth and Uncle Pete, the town law officer. The writer’s group consists of a group of five experienced romance writers from Connecticut and Jessi Ball. Jessie is a student at Covington College. She has earned the right to attend this session. Cat takes the group on a tour to an old mining town in Outlaw, Colorado which sets the scene for a Western town in the 1800’s. There is a saloon, an old time photo shop, a gift shop and gunfighter battles. Jessie and some of the college students work in the town to earn extra money. What a shock when Jessie’s roommate dressed in Jessie’s saloon girl costume is found straggled in their room! Was Jessie the real targeted??? Come along with Cat and the group as they decide to investigate the situation. The cast consists of cleverly, crafted, mischievous, well defined and interesting characters. Murder, robbery, run away cars, danger, intrigue and suspense add to this well written fast paced adventure. The reader will feel as is they are with this group due to the author descriptive flair. Come join the fun and read this story. This is book # 4 in the Cat Latimer Mysteries series. It can be read as a stand alone as the author mixes the past and present together effortlessly. I volunteered to read Slay in Character. Thanks to the Cozy Mystery Review Crew for the opportunity. My opinion is my own.

    I loved it!

    This series is always a guaranteed good book. This fourth book in the series does not disappoint. I really enjoy this series. The characters are engaging and the setting of the book retreat is a place I'd love to visit. The whodunit was well written and I could not put the book down. I look forward to reading the next in the series. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

    Another Great Book in the Series

    Cat Latimer is hosting another writers' retreat this time with a group of historical romance writers from the same writers' group. This group quickly adopts the local college student attending the retreat into their group so the getting to know one another part of the retreat is not necessary. Cat thinks that because of this group already is so close to one another that she might have a peaceful retreat for once. Quickly she is proven wrong when the college student learns someone close to her has been killed. The whole group of writers jumps into their own investigation. I love this book, I think it's the best in the series so far. There is a very strong plot with great pace and several red herrings to throw you off solving whodunit right away. The characters both primary and secondary are full of personality. I really enjoyed Cat being on the other side of the investigations this time. It was kind of funny seeing Cat having to go get her guest because they were nosing in on a police investigation this time instead of it being Cat nosing into things. The ghost town setting of Outlaw is a wonderful addition to the already cozy setting of Aspen Hills. In addition to the wonderful mystery and humor, this book made me a little emotional near the end of the book with Seth's surprise (I will not say any more so I will not give away any spoilers.) Bonus if you like to cook there is a great recipe for Easy Blueberry Coffee Cake. I recommend this book to fans of the series, Author Lynn Cahoon, and all cozy mystery lovers. I was given an ARC of this book in hopes I would give a review. All thoughts and opinions are my own and have not been influenced in any way.

    Great Cozy Mystery

    A wonderful cozy mystery, Slay in Character by Lynn Cahoon, book four in her Cat Latimer Mystery series was a fun read. Catherine “Cat” Latimer is an author and the owner of Warm Springs Writer’s Retreat in the small college town of Aspen Hills, Colorado which she runs with her friend along with Cat's boyfriend Seth, who does the handyman jobs. A group of writers who already know each other arrive for the week. One other person attending is a student Jessi who earned the right to attend. Cat arranged for a fun day trip for everyone to visit a local ghost town. Unfortunately, Jessi's roommate, who worked at the ghost town, is found murdered. Cat is on the case as someone then tries to kill Jessi. Cat, Shauna, Seth & the writers all work together to figure out what happened to Danielle and to keep Jessi safe. Soon the suspects and clues become overwhelming and Cat might just find herself in over her head. This cozy mystery had all the elements I enjoy interesting likable characters, an intriguing mystery, friendship, and romance. Plus, it isn't graphic, intense or scary. Ms. Cahoon did an excellent job keeping her readers on their toes as they read. She had me miss-guessing who the killer was. I highly recommend Slay in Character to other readers and look forward to Cat’s next adventure. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Cozy Mystery

    3.5 Stars This story is a nice cozy mystery. This is the 4th book in the Cat Latimer Mystery series. In this series, Cat Latimer is a writer who inherits a house from her former, dead husband. Since the house is in a small University town in Colorado, Cat decides to renovate and convert it into a writers’ retreat. During these retreats, there is always some sort of a ‘who done it’. In this book, Cat bring her writers group to a tourist “Old West Town” attraction for a field trip. All seems to be running smoothly until one of her guest's friends is murdered. I liked the storyline and the characters, however, I didn’t really connect with Cat. I prefer The Tourist Trap Mystery series and Farm-to-Fork Mystery by the same author.
