The Last Word by Ellery Adams
Olivia Limoges has a lot on her plate - the opening of a new restaurant, helping her newly-discovered brother and his family get settled in their new home, and working on her own novel but she squeezes in an assist to her fellow writer-wannabe, Harris, to find a house to buy. When Harris settles on an old fixer-upper, Olivia makes sure that he is the new owner by pushing through the sale before a famous writer can get it.
But the discoveries that are made as the renovations begin, add a new dark twist by revealing the history of a longtime member of the community.
When the famous author is found dead literally eating his own words, Olivia works with Chief Rawlings to find out why.
I really like this series and Ellery Adams is quickly becoming one of my favorite cozy writers. Looking forward to the next one VERY soon!
