Blog Tour: Invitation To Die

Twenty-six-year-old Emily Castles is out of work… again. So when famous romance author Morgana Blakely offers her a job helping out at a conference in London, Emily accepts. Just as eagerly, American blogger Winnie Kraster accepts an invitation from Morgana to attend as a guest, not realizing she has, in effect, accepted an invitation to die.

As a cast of oddball characters assembles at the conference hotel, grievances, differences, and secrets begin to emerge. When Winnie goes missing, and then is found murdered nearby, Emily begins to suspect that someone involved with the conference is responsible. Could it be one of the organizers, one of the authors, a member of the hotel staff, or even the supplier of the chocolates for the conference gift bags? Emily teams up with guest speaker and eccentric philosophy professor Dr. Muriel to find out.

Offbeat and engaging, this entertaining comic mystery is the first full-length novel featuring amateur British sleuth Emily Castles.

My Thoughts:
This is the first in a series, and it does the great job of setting up all the facts we need to know, and does so with finesse! I reviewed Showstoppers and Three Sisters, and loved them! I was quite eager to read more by Helen Smith and I was not disappointed at all!

This isn't a lengthy book. I got finished with it in one day and was left WANTING MORE! Not in a bad way, mind you, but in the kind of way that you want to feel! I thought this was an excellent first book in a series, and certainly sets up the scene for the rest of Helen Smith's delightful books!
