In Death by the Book, Drew Farthering, his girlfriend Madeline, and his pal Nick Dennison must solve a series of seemingly random murders. Each murder draws closer and closer to Drew himself, which is worrisome. Also, Madeline's Aunt Ruth arrives from America, determined to separate Madeline and Drew for good. Toss in a lot of cryptic messages left at the murder scenes and Inspector Birdsong being his usual gruff self, and you have a charming entry into the series.

If This was a Movie, I Would Rate It: PG-13 for violence, danger, kissing, and Aunt Ruth implying that Drew is trying to steal Madeline's virtue, as it were.
This is my 15th book read and reviewed for the Mount TBR Reading Challenge 2018!
