I enjoyed the style of this one. The humour helped keep my interest throughout. A decent story line, two strong lead characters, and a full supporting cast. I could get to like Ms Fitzwalter's work if the rest of the Jennifer Marsh series is a good as this one.

A good fun novel, a few twists and turns with a bit of humor along the way.

Some of the reviews of this book make me wonder if they really read it. The plot is interesting and a bit different. Highly unlikely of course, but why should a plot be too believable? It is fiction after all.

This book is no classic, but why should it have to be. It is enjoyable escapism. No more, no less. Easy to read. Weird characters. "Just as if" plot. Don't think I'll be paying for the other books in the series, but it was OK. I enjoyed reading it.

Jennifer Marsh is a writer just dying to get published. She has written and submitted eight books and hasn't been able to catch a nibble. Jennifer decides that what she needs is a little publicity and the perfect plot, so she devises a plan that will see her go through the process of planning a murder. But Jennifer soon finds out that it's much easier to write about a murder than to put her ideas into action.
The first thing Jennifer needs is a 'victim' - but it has to be someone that the world would be better off without. She finds the perfect specimen in Penney Richmond, ... an agent who'd kept one of Jennifer's manuscripts for a year then sent it back with a scathing comment. Jennifer's choice of victim is reinforced when it comes to light that Penney is in the habit of stealing unknown writer's manuscripts and giving the plot ideas to well-known authors who are guaranteed to sell more copies. Jennifer scheme to 'murder' Penney backfires when Penney is actually murdered and the deliberate trail Jennifer left leads the police straight to her.
This is a deliciously funny novel and a great series introduction. The cast of supporting characters all have great promise, as does the heroine Jennifer. Fill the bathtub, add a nice relaxing scent, grab a bottle of something cold, and settle in for an easy, entertaining read.

I purchased this because it was free on kindle. I wasn't sure that I would like the plot or not: a mystery writer with unpublished manuscripts and rejection letters decides that if she commits murder it will lead to her books being published. However, I really enjoyed it. I do agree with other reviewers that I found the main character's constant referral to her not-even-conceived foetus annoying and at times it made me like the heroine slightly less for it, but this is my only criticism.

I really rather enjoyed this, although I have to admit that I don't generally read crime fiction.

Nice written, good characters, plot and pace. It was amusing and interesting, in places just plain laugh out loud funny.

I will definitely read by Judy Fitzwater in the future.

Even better for me, it didn't cost me a bean as it was one of my DSOA picks from the Blog in April 2013. Full Blog Post #426 in March 2014.

A young woman takes a new approach to writing a publishable book.

After continual rejection by various publishers, Jennifer Marsh decides to put herself into the shoes of a murderer in order to write a true to life crime fiction novel and make a name for herself in the media. However, this all backfires when the woman she targets for her fictional murder gets killed in real life, leaving her the prime suspect.

A predictable yet gripping book with strong characters and a really good story line. Each chapter followed on from the previous making it a real page Turner. The characters are all really likeable and I will be interested to see how the rest of the books in this series pan out.
