One would never guess to look at suburbanite homemaker Jane Jeffry that she would be interested in murder, but she's practically an expert on the subject. Which is why, with best buddy Shelley Nowack in tow, Jane's booking down to a nearby mystery writers' convention to mingle with the agents, publishing bigwigs, and famous authors ... and to maybe drum up interest in her own recently completed manuscript.
But what would a mystery convention be without a mystery? So when a famous ego-squashing editor is undone by an anonymous poisoner, and a much hated book-bashing journalist is himself bashed quite nastily in the parking lot, Jane and Shelley jump right on the case, ready to snoop, eavesdrop, and gossip their way to a solution. But the would-be killer they seek is no open book. And trying to read him/her/them may turn out to be harder -- and deadlier -- than anyone initially imagined.

A writers' conference is the backdrop for this mystery surrounding a plagiarized book, an ego-bashing editor poisoned by chocolate, and a book-bashing reviewer, who is himself found bashed. Susan Ericksen perfectly captures the ambiance of a writers' conference while keeping the dialogue light. She stealthily drops clues, giving them weight without giving away the perpetrators too soon. With deadpan delivery, she makes us believe that Olga Strange and Ena Potts, recluse residents of a cabin (without electricity) in Alaska, who drive matching yellow Hummers, really do snoop, eavesdrop, and gossip their way to the mystery's solution.
