Once again Emlyn solves a murder!

August 11, 2018Format: Kindle EditionOnce again she solves a murder with the help of an ancestor, her best friend, and a sassy cat. Although this time she finds herself engaged and getting her brother in law involved too. This novel is very well written, funny, and the characters seem unbelievably real. You can definitely tell the author Susan puts some of herself into every story and even Emlyn herself. I found this novel to be a quick read since I could not put it down! I’m already looking forward to the next of the series.

Xkoqueen4.0 out of 5 starsChillingly Good!

July 25, 2018

Format: Kindle EditionWriting is Murder by Susan Lynn Solomon is a standalone cozy mystery in the author’s Emlyn Goode Mystery series. In addition to being a cozy mystery, there is a paranormal aspect to the story as Emlyn Goode is a descendent of a purported witch.

I loved the rich details Ms. Solomon included in her descriptions of the area. The author vividly describes an area of New York with which she is clearly familiar. Her descriptions of haunted locations are bone chilling!

Emlyn Goode is a writer who happens to be dating the local law enforcement. She can’t help but become involved in solving some local crimes since her witchy senses frequently lead her to trouble. I loved the historical fiction aspects in Writing is Murder as well as the inclusion of Emlyn’s writing group.

The characters are all likable, and their banter is fun. Their relationships definitely gave a homey, small town feel to the setting. The plot has a few intertwined threads that are all pulled together by the end of the story. Ms. Solomon has delivered a smart, engaging cozy mystery with plenty of clues and red herrings to keep her readers guessing until the end.

October 5, 2017

Format: Kindle EditionI can only think of one word. One word that best describes this book, its characters, and this story.Charming.This entire book struck me as so charming, I couldn’t help but think of my late mother as I read it. Why? Because she loved a mystery. She was always watching shows like Murder She Wrote, Cagney and Lacey, and the like. This Emlyn Goode mystery would have fit right in. The meddlesome citizen, friends with the police, and seemingly better at solving murders than the pro’s are.  It’s such a great read. It grabbed me on the first page, and made me curious about the other books in this series that I haven’t read.

This novelette is well worth the read, and I highly recommend it if you like a good mystery. Hell, even if you don’t, pick it up. I’d bet that you would still enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A UNIQUE VOICEReviewed in the United States on August 27, 2016Bella Vita Salon is the ‘go to’ place for news of import. It’s also the launch point from which author Susan Lynn Solomon unwraps her own unique brand of storytelling. Using first person, the author confers on character Emlyn Goode the dual tasks of protagonist and narrator, sharing her insights and uncertainties with an unflinching self-deprecation that made me feel like she was sitting across from me at a shared table. A novelette, BELLA VITA gives more of what we first discovered in Solomon’s THE MAGIC OF MURDER, a 5 star full length work that focused on a modern day witch coming to terms with her inherited powers. I sense that the author in her enthusiasm just had to share her down-to-earth character one more time before the follow-up to MAGIC releases. Thank you for that. BELLA VITA is a nice bridge between the novels. 5 stars

GRAB THE MAGIC OF MURDER FOR YOUR READING PLEASURE!!!! SUSAN LYNN SOLOMON

newmagicofmurder teaser

When his partner is discovered in a frozen alley with eight bullets in his chest, Niagara Falls Police Detective Roger Frey swears vengeance. But Detective Chief Woodward has forbidden him or anyone else on the detective squad to work the case. Emlyn Goode knows Roger will disobey his boss, which will cost him his job and his freedom. Because she cares for him more than she’ll admit, she needs to stop him. Desperate, she can think of but one way.

Emlyn recently learned she’s a direct descendant of a woman hanged as a witch in 1692. She has a book filled with arcane recipes and chants passed down through her family. Possessed of, or perhaps by a vivid imagination, she intends to use these to solve Jimmy’s murder before Roger takes revenge on the killer. But she’s new to this “witch thing,” and needs help from her friend Rebecca Nurse, whose ancestor also took a short drop from a Salem tree. Rebecca’s not much better at deciphering the ancient directions, and while the women stumble over spell after spell, the number possible killers grows. When Chief Woodward’s wife is shot and a bottle bomb bursts through Emlyn’s window, it becomes clear she’s next on the killer’s list.

jfb5.0 out of 5 stars A mystery-lover’s page turner.

Reviewed in the United States on May 22, 2018Format: Kindle EditionVerified PurchaseSusan Solomon had me from the get-go. This is the first one of her books I’ve read and it will definitely not be the last!

The writing is top-notch–a pleasure to read–and the story is a page turner. I couldn’t put my Kindle down. The characters were all very well-developed, the plot was amazingly deft and devious, and the “magical” twist smacked of excellent research and clever story development.

This novel is a keeper, an entertaining read and an on-the-edge-of-your-seat mystery-lover’s nirvana.
