Cassandra Ellis is a soon-to-be published author, days away from achieving her lifetime goal. But before she can celebrate, before she can even have her first book signing, she’s brought in to Baltimore City Police Headquarters for questioning in connection to a real-life murder.

It seems she’s the last person to see the victim alive, since she had just met with the former arsonist to conduct research for her next book. Most damning, her day planner was found next to the body.

When another of her subject matter experts is killed– again right after meeting with her– Cassie decides to investigate things herself, rather than leaving it in the hands of the police. Although she’d love to get her hands on the homicide detective assigned to the cases.

Using all the tools available to her, including her research skills, her knowledge of murder and murderers, and… psychic parrots, she tries to solve the case before another friend is killed. Along the way, she finds out that murder in real life is different than murder on the page.

And don’t miss “Two Wrongs Don’t Make a Write“, the second book in the series, available in paperback and Kindle.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

Move over Nancy Drew, Jessica Fletcher, Jane Marple, and yes, even Stephanie Plum — there’s a new sleuth in town and she’s moving to the top of the list of likeable female sleuths. Cathy Wiley hits it out of the park with her first foray into the cozy, murder mystery genre by presenting an imperfect, yet very likeable heroine who writes murder mysteries and manages to solve them at the same time. It was nice to see the author has another book in the works and plans a series of books featuring her writer/sleuth. In the meantime, add this one to your reading stack.


Purchased this for Kindle after wading through scads of samples that didn’t intrigue me at all. This one grabbed me from the first page and just got better. Love the characters already. I hope we see more from this author, she tops bunches I’ve read so far, and I read a lot.


I love a book that grabs my interest and keeps it to the end. I also love a book I can curl up on the couch and get comfortable with. I could relate to the characters and want to know them better. Great job!! I’m looking forward to the next!


I found this (book) to be very well written and edited, a real standout debut. The writer did her research and it shows. All around good, solid, fun book. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.


I have, as many, been disappointed with the Plumb novels, so I went searching for a different author. Wow, Oh Wow…can Cathy write. I adore the banter and interaction between all characters, the wit, the romance, the intrigue, Everything. I could not put it down and even had to read it twice. I can not wait for the next story and have recommended this book to ALL!!!
