Murder at the Book Group

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


For fans of Anne Canadeo comes a fun and sassy cozy mystery in which one woman must solve the murder of a book group member and untangle a web of secrets hidden by her bookish cohorts.

Hazel Rose never dreamed that the murder mystery book group she and her friend Carlene started would stage a real murder.

Nevertheless, the normally composed Carlene is unusually angry and rattled one night during a book group discussion and dies after drinking cyanide-spiked tea. Despite a suicide note, Hazel is skeptical; Carlene never seemed suicidal—she was busy making plans for her future. Incidentally, Carlene was married to Hazel’s ex-husband, and Hazel has always suspected there might be something more to her past than she let on.

How much does anyone really know about Carlene Arness? And did she die by her own hand or someone else’s? Hazel begins a search for the truth that produces no shortage of motives, as she unearths the past that Carlene took great pains to hide. And most of those motives belong to the members of her very own book group…

Featuring memorable characters and a wicked sense of humor, Murder at the Book Group shows the darker side of a book club where reading isn’t about pleasure—it’s about payback.

From Publishers Weekly

Oct 13, 2014 – Murder on Tour, a Richmond, Va., book group that focuses each meeting on mysteries that share a geographic setting, provides the milieu for King's entertaining debut. At a gathering devoted to Florida-based mysteries, one of the group's cofounders, Carlene Arness, who's normally soft-spoken and composed, is highly critical of the books under discussion, especially after an old acquaintance of hers from L.A. drops by. The group's other cofounder, Hazel Rose, wonders whether Carlene's irritation is a sign that something's amiss in her personal life. By night's end, Carlene is dead of cyanide poisoning. Certain that the suicide note is a fake, Hazel worries that any number of people around Carlene had an interest in her demise. Carlene's estranged husband, Evan Arness, was once married to Hazel, which complicates matters. Readers will find more substance here than in most cozies.
