My Review

Ever had a boss you just wanted to kill?  These characters did.

 Everybody is a suspect and it’s a lot of fun to read about all of the reasons they wanted their boss dead.

I thought I had it figured out pretty early, but then I shifted to another suspect, and then another. The author kept me on my toes and the final reveal in this whodunit was a good one.

I felt the author did well in developing her characters and I could easily fit into this office. Felt kind of familiar.

I enjoy short stories. It gives me a chance to sample the author’s writing. This was a quick read and a fun mystery and I’d keep reading if the author chose to make this a series.

  4 Stars



An ordinary work day at the western Massachusetts Sugarloaf Inn turns more chilling than the winter weather when staff member Candy Wadsen makes a gruesome discovery. Her day goes from bad to worse when Candy realizes that Detective Sergeant Dan Petrowski suspects her of committing the crime.

“What if?” Those two words all too easily send Devorah Fox spinning into flights of fancy. Best-selling author of an award-winning literary historical fantasy series and several thrillers, she also penned Mystery Mini Short Reads and contributed short stories to popular fantasy anthologies. Born in Brooklyn, New York, she now lives on the Texas Gulf Coast with rescued tabby cats … and a dragon named Inky. Visit the “Dee-Scoveries” blog at

  1. Wow, that is a short mystery. :)

    • Dee says:

      My thinking was that sometimes “short” is exactly what the situation calls for. The other day I was stuck standing around waiting. A short read like “Murder by the Book” would fill that time perfectly.

      • fuonlyknew says:

        That’s why I enjoy them. Also for reading in bed when I know I won’t last long before getting sleepy. LOL

    • fuonlyknew says:

      You know me, Stormi. I enjoy the little nibbles now and then:)

  2. Joanie Hinton says:

    a great sounding book for a one night read…

  3. kim hansen says:

    New author for me.

  4. yvonne473 says:

    • fuonlyknew says:

  5. I like when the author keeps ya guessing.
