Description

The annual Historical Romance Writers of the World convention in New York City is calling to Jacqueline Kirby, a Nebraska librarian who desperately desires some excitement. But all is not love and kisses at this august gathering of starry-eyed eccentrics and sentimental scribes. As far as Jacqueline is concerned, the sudden "natural" death of a gossip columnist seems anything but. And when she's approached by a popular genre star who fears for her own life, the resourceful Ms. Kirby quickly goes back to work...as a sleuth.

There's a sinister scenario being penned at this purple prose congregation. And when jealousy and passion are released from the boundaries of the printed page, the result can be murder.

      • premium: False

      • content:

        "Delicious stereotypes abound as each author tries to outdo the others. The narrator splendidly delivers the banter and wordplay of these wordsmiths. Peters is a natural for audio because conversation is central to her work. Conlin wonderfully portrays the array of characters."

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Creating the character of Hattie, irascible doyenne of the Romance writing world of the 1970s, Liza Ross uses a memorable Southern accent and realistic voice. Ross precisely enunciates every word but still doesn't achieve good character differentiation. The protagonist, librarian Jacqueline Kirby, never acquires a unique voice. Perhaps it's the perfect pronunciation, so rare in real life, that keeps some of the characters from achieving lives of their own in this competent production. D.T.H.
