Why do I often discover a new-to-me series in book three? I guess it’s a test of the story, that it can be read as a stand-alone rather than needing to start at the beginning of the series so I understand the backstory.
Veronica Blackstone is a writer for hire. She writes advertising copy, love letters for people who can’t express themselves in words, and ghost writing. In Making it Write, she is engaged by Maeve Winslow, the wife of a famous artist nominated for a prestigious award. Maeve needs Veronica’s assistance with her memoir and she passes on all her notes to Veronica, bar the vital final few pages. Then Maeve is found dead at the foot of her stairs.
Veronica has doubts about the ‘accidental’ nature of Maeve’s death. Was she murdered to hide a secret that would be revealed in those last pages of her memoir? Veronica sets out to unravel the clues and discover the murderer.
Making it Write is a comfortable cosy mystery. I’m keen to read the first two novels in the series now to learn more of Veronica’s involvement in the world of words and murder.
