Ð Death in Dark Blue (A Writers Apprentice Mystery, #2) · Download by ä Julia Buckley 4. 5 Love this series I m so disappointed in Death in Dark Blue Instead of a cozy mystery, I felt like I was reading a romance novel Lena London, the protagonist, should have been consumed with her career as a collaborator with novelist Camilla Graham and the murder that occurred in her backyard But nope, she was busy chasing Victoria West, the estranged wife of her love interest Sam Oh, and sleeping over at Sam s house, romantic dates with Sam, and of course, daydreaming about Sam It appears that this story will continue in the next book, so I will not be reading any of this series. An Aspiring Suspense Author Finds Herself Writing Mysteries By Day And Solving Them By Night In The Second Writer S Apprentice Mystery By The Author Of A Dark And Stormy Murder And The Undercover Dish Mysteries In The Quaint Town Of Blue Lake, Indiana, Lena London Is Settling Into Her Dream Job, But Someone Is Making Her Life A Nightmare Things Are Beginning To Go Right For Lena She S Got A New Job Assisting Suspense Novelist And Friend, Camilla Graham She Lives Rent Free In Camilla S Beautiful, Gothic House She Even Has A Handsome New Boyfriend, Sam WestAfter Being Under Attack By The Media And His Neighbors, Sam Has Recently Been Cleared Of Suspicion For Murder Journalists And Townsfolk Alike Are Remorseful, And One Blogger Would Even Like To Apologize To Him In Person But When She S Found Dead Behind Sam S House, Lena Must Dodge Paparazzi As She Unravels The Many Mysteries That Threaten To Darken The Skies Of Her Little Town And Her Newfound Love With Sam Book 2 did continue the storyline from Book 1 of the Writer s Apprentice, A Dark and Stormy Night Unfortunately, part of the mystery is solved but it immediately transitions into what will be in the next book or perhaps book 4 What happened seemed too hurried to already be happening That is not a good thing for this reader, because I am okay with a 2 part cliffhanger but not than that I am finding it difficult to even like the 2 main characters who just seem off to me. Loved it This book is as good as the first One of the best cozy series out there If there were one author that has started being published traditionally in the last two years that I would have to call my favorite, it would be Julia Buckley I am caught up on both of her series, and every book I ve read of hers has been high quality, solid mysteries with stand out characters and engaging plots. In Death in Dark Blue Lena has once again found herself in the middle of a mystery Lena is the perfect MC she isn t shy about investigating, but she isn t sneaky or obnoxious about it, either Sam, Camilla, and Doug were all outstanding once again, though I wish we d learn about Camilla We also met a new semi major character, Belinda, who I hope will return in the next book in a larger role. As with the first in this series, A Dark and Stormy Murder, there Julia Buckley has delivered an engaging and suspenseful second installment in the Writer s Apprentice Mystery series with a gothic feel, a touch of romance and a complex and layered mystery that is woven throughout the story I am one of those readers who has to read a series in order, even if they can be read as a stand alone That is not the case with this series I would highly suggest that you read book one first I, personally, don t feel like these are stand alone books as there is a secondary mystery that is woven throughout both stories Lena London, our protagonist, is joined by Sam, Camilla and the cast of characters from the first book We are introduced to some new characters that round out the team nicely The mystery is layered and complex wh
Death In Dark Blue is the second book in the A Writer s Apprentice series. Another enjoyable visit to Blue Lake, IN, and chance to spend some time with Lena and her employer and author Camilla Graham.

Death in Dark Blue was filled heartfelt romance and love Lena s love of writing shines through when recieving Advanced Reader Copies of her and Camilla s first book the Salsburg Train but the writing theme was written as an afterthought to me unlike the first book in the series which I missed Author Julia Buckley captured Crime, intrigue and suspense with every page The plot was slow moving but steady and the plot twist at the end of this story has me wanting to read the next book in the series.
