Description:

When it comes to solving mysteries, these ladies are in a league of their own…!

Summer can be the best of times or the worst of times for the resort town of Put-in-Bay on Lake Erie. For Bea Cartwright, business is booming as guests storm her B and B for the Bastille Day celebration. In honor of the holiday, the League of Literary Ladies is reading the Charles Dickens’ classic, A Tale of Two Cities. It would be hard to make a more apropos selection—especially when they have their very own Defarge sisters, elderly twins Margaret and Alice, who run the local knitting shop.

On Bastille Day, the head-banging rock band Guillotine shows their chops for the tourists—but the celebration is soon cut short. With something needling the Defarge dowagers and secrets that lead to murder, solving this mystery will be a far, far better thing than the Literary Ladies have done before. They’ll just have to make sure to keep their heads while they try to stop a killer’s reign of terror.

My Thoughts:

This book has so much going on for the town of Put-in-Bay are getting ready for Bastille Day which will be offering Boys N Funk for music a Dicken's contest to see who is the most accurate impersonator, and a little bit of murder to add to the events.

When Richie Monroe winds up dead from mysterious circumstances after being thrown in the water it's up to Bea and her friends to find out what is going on.  In this book there are so many possible suspects, from a girlfriend accused of fighting with Richie to people Richie has screwed over with work. Even someone from Boys N Funk that could possibly to have motive to murder Richie.

This book was great and early enough in the season that if you missed the first book you won't feel too behind reading this one.  I can't wait to see what is next for The League of Literary Ladies in this small town.  I really enjoyed it!
