A Dark and Stormy Murder (A Writer's Apprentice Mystery Book 1) by [Julia Buckley]



A Dark and Stormy Murder by Julia Buckley


Welcome to Monday Murders! This last week, I listened to the audiobook of A DArk and Stormy Murder by Julia Buckley. This is the first in a new series called the Writer’s Apprentice.
Lena London found herself living the dream, thanks to serendipity. Her best friend moved to Blue Lake, Indiana and joined a knitting club. Lena’s favorite author, Camilla Graham happened to be a member of that club. Camilla needed an assistant and Lena needed a job. When Lena stumbled upon a dead body, the writing gig took a back seat to real life drama. Camilla’s home seemed to be at the center of the mystery. Everyone Lena met seemed to want to know more about Graham House. Things took a personal turn when the grouchy neighbor turned out to be an attractive, wealthy man, which would’ve been perfect had he not been suspected for the murder of his wife.
Lena began sleuthing in an effort to determine who killed the young man she discovered on the beach, and Camilla joined in, enjoying the real life mystery. Together, the two of them put the pieces together and help the handsome cop figure it out.

    Hey, honestly your site is coming along :-), but I had a question – it’s a bit slow. Have you thought about using a different host like propel? It’d help your visitors stick around longer = more profit long term anyway. There’s a decent review on it by this guy who uses gtmetrix to test different hosting providers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6s0ciJI4W4 and the whole video has a bunch of gold in it, worth checking out.

    Picture this – 3 am in the morning, I had a line of fiends stretched around the corner of my block. It was in the freezing middle of January but they had camped out all night, jumping-ready to buy like there was a sale on Jordans. If you were 16 years old, in my shoes, you’d do anything to survive, right? I got good news though; I MADE IT OUT OF THE HOOD, with nothing but a laptop and an internet connection. I’m not special or lucky in any way. If I, as a convicted felon that used to scream “Free Harlem” around my block until my throat was sore, could find a way to generate a stable, consistent, reliable income online, ANYONE can! If you’re interested in legitimate, stress-free side hustles that can bring in $3,500/week, I set up a site you can use: https://incomecommunity.com
