    Need's a new Boss!!!

    I've enjoyed this series but so far but as I continue to read on, I find it difficult to actually like the main character 'Cat' Latimer. She is supposedly part-owner in her writer's retreat yet her best friend Shauna, along with boyfriend Seth do all of the work. Shauna is in charge of promotion, marketing, cooking and cleaning the retreat in addition to her many other duties. Boyfriend Seth picks up and drops off guests to-and-from the airport; "babysits" Cat and the house whenever necessary, is the designated driver every month so that Cat can enjoy a drink fuelled night with her guests, carries out all handiwork required, and, on top of all that, has his own business to run!!! Cat, for her part, give's a couple of talks, attends the final evening night out so that she can enjoy a few Margarita's, , pushes her nose in here-and-there, allows the 'world-and-his-wife' free access to both hers and her deceased husbands private offices and files; all whilst keeping her poor boyfriend at arms length - the man is a Saint... As I have continued with this series I find Cat the least likeable character, she appears, spoilt, selfish and all-knowing and acts like an extremely old (and old-fashioned, woman)... God save us from this woman and please replace her with a new, stronger, hands-on, role model. How about the Author kills off Cat's character and passes the baton over to a new, tough and loving newbie - perhaps a relative? A long-lost twin? Let Shauna continue to do the work that she does now and replace Cat with a tougher character who also has a heart (and can show it to the poor, long-suffering Seth).

    One of my favorite authors!

    A group of historic fiction authors attend a writers retreat in Outlaw, Colorado they find not only a focus on their writing, but some inspiration with a murder and mystery that touches their group. Cat hosts a monthly writers retreat and it seems there plenty of fodder for future stories every time, but this time, when the roommate of the college student attending the retreat is murdered, the ladies in the retreat group rally around her and being poking around. The story is well written so that it not only draws you in, it hooks you until you get to the end! This is why Lynn is one of my favorite authors. Her writing flows, the characters are well developed, and she provides enough clues and red herrings that it keeps you guessing for quite awhile. Another fantastic read from Lynn Cahoon!

    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.

    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.

    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.
