Arsenic with Austen

Katherine Bolger Hyde’s Arsenic with Austen takes place really close to where I live. Emily Cavanaugh teaches at Reed College, less than 1 mile from me, and travels to the Oregon Coast town, which her aunt owned most of the property. After her aunt’s death, Emily inherits her aunts mansion as well as most of the town. There are many who resent what she represents and how her aunt managed her property development. When another elderly woman ends up dead under very suspicious circumstances, its up to Emily and her lover from 30 years prior to solve the crime.

This was a super sweet love story told through a murder investigation. It was a quick, enjoyable read. The twists and turns weren’t that surprising, but her interspersing of famous authors was quaint.
