ANYTHING FOR A STORY is on tour with Great Escapes, guys! And since the protagonist Stormi Nelson is trying her hand at writing romantic mystery, I’m especially excited to be one of the stops!
When romance writer Stormi Nelson moves into a Victorian mansion in Oak Meadows Estates, she thinks she’s found the perfect place to write her next bestseller. Although she wants to stay curled up in her house in front of the computer, her agent tells her to get out and meet people to breathe some new life into her characters. So Stormi decides to start a Neighborhood Watch program. But her first night on patrol, she discovers that the neighborhood is less than idyllic when she stumbles over a dead body. Things start to look up when the handsome detective who lives down the street comes to her aide. But then she returns home to find that her mother, sister, niece and nephew are moving in, and soon another victim is found dead. As Stormi immerses herself deeper and deeper into the mystery, the neighbors begin to turn on her. She realizes that she has to act before the killer turns on her and her family too.
ANYTHING FOR A STORY is a riot (and I’m not talking about all the noise Stormi and her family makes). I absolutely love the crazy characters that live in Oak Meadows Estates, and I’m particularly fond of Rusty because he’s “special.” Stormi’s family is lots of fun too. Her skate-boarding nephew turns out to be a super sleuth, and her mother is a savvy spy. And the cute relationship that forms between Stormi and her mom is one of the best parts of this story—besides the kissing scenes with sexy Detective Steele, of course!
RATING 5 Limoncello shots! (Or, in this case, raspberry tea.)
