Read to Death
by Terrie Farley Moran
The novel is engaging and pulled me in right from the beginning.
~Sapphyria’s Book Reviews
This book was so good I did not want it to end.
The characters are fun and realistic, and the mystery keeps you turning pages, anxious to see how it all plays out.
READ TO DEATH is a fun, lighthearted read that is character driven.
~Cinnamon Sugar and a Little Bit of Murder
I really enjoyed Read to Death by Terrie Farley Moran. There is a lot going on so you need to pay attention while you read ~ it took me to the end to figure out who the murderer was! Which is just how I like a cozy mystery to be.
~Kaisy Daisy’s Corner
This is a fast paced story that will have you turning pages and it kept me guessing till the very end..
~Melina’s Book Blog
The authors writing style is very light and flowing which makes your reading time just fly by.
~A. Holland Reads
A spunky heroine, a bookstore-cum-cafe, a host of interesting secondary characters, and Florida’s West Coast — this series is a lot of fun! Read to Death is the third book*, and Moran is on a roll.

The national bestselling author of Caught Read-Handed revisits Fort Myers Beach, Florida, where the proprietors of a local bookstore café occasionally take a stab at solving murder…
At their seaside Read ‘Em and Eat bookstore café, Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield offer fresh scones, great books, and excellent detective work…
With their book club season wrapping up with The Florida Life of Thomas Edison, Sassy and Bridgy decide to take their group on a day trip to the beautiful Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Hiring driver Oscar Frieland, who’s known for his colorful stories and love of the café’s Robert Frost fruit tartlets, the bibliophiles set off for a day of sunshine and history.
After a lovely excursion, the club returns to the café for lunch and a book discussion, but the group falls silent after Oscar is found dead in his van. The sheriff’s deputies have some questions of their own for the group, and if the ladies don’t find some answers soon, the next book they read might be from a prison library.

FTC Disclosure: I received a free NetGalley of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.
My thoughts: This is one of those series for which I’m always anxious for the next book. Terrie’s writing flows smoothly at a fast pace. The reader is engaged in the story right up to the end. This third installment in the series is no exception. One of the things I look for in a cozy mystery (besides the mystery) is whether or not I would want to visit the town and meet the people in the story. I would love to have a Read’em and Eat Cafe here in Colorado Springs. I love Sassy and Bridgy. They are closer than sisters and compliment each other in their approach to life and it’s mysteries. Their various book club members had extra depth and humor to the story. In this installment, I also enjoyed learning a about the Edison and Ford Winter estates.
If you are looking for an engaging mystery with truly likable characters then this is the series with you. You can easily read this book as a stand alone, but I do recommend reading the first two books in the series: Well Read, Then Dead and Caught Read Handed.
