Book Review: Bookman Dead Style by Paige Shelton
This is the sequel to Shelton's To Helvetica And Back. It's set in a fictional town which strongly resembles Park City, Utah, during the time of a film festival which parallels the Sundance Festival (with even a sneaky little nod to Sundance in the form of a secret password). It involves movies stars, wannabe stars, polygamists, and, of course, a spot of murder. (For what is a cozy without a murder to solve?)
I've read every single one of Shelton's books, and this new series is my favorite. The setting is charming, for one thing. And, unlike many other cozy authors, Shelton's protagonists are never stupid or helpless women who must constantly be rescued. That's a big plus.
If you're a cozy fan, a Sundance fan, a skiing town fan, or just someone looking for a fun winter read, give this a try. It's a delightful little escape from reality.
