A Murder Between the Pages (Main Street Book Club Mysteries #2) by Amy Lillard

A Murder Between the Pages (Main Street Book Club Mysteries #2)ABOUT THE BOOK

Second book in the Main Street Book Club mysteries!

You won't be able to stop turning the pages of this small town mystery, which is: 

  • Perfect for Fans of Ellery Adams and Lorna Barrett
  • A riveting book club cozy mystery
  • For readers of club mysteries and small-town cozy mysteries

This murder will have to be solved by the book...

It was only a few months ago that the ladies of Arlo's Friday Night Book Club--Fern, Camille, and Helen--solved the murder of the renowned author, Wally Harrison. So when they select Wally's bestseller, Missing Girl, for their next discussion, Arlo is hopeful it will be the end of their mystery hunt.

But since their recent success as sleuths the crew officially see themselves as a women's mystery club, and they're convinced Missing Girl was inspired by a 50-year-old cold case. It's a case from their own Sugar Springs, Mississippi--the disappearance of Mary Kennedy--and Arlo can do little to stop the book club ladies from investigating.

But what starts out as a fun hunch quickly turns into a very real cold case murder mystery when a young girl is murdered in the exact place the women believe Mary went missing all those years ago. It's clear the two cases are connected--and the mystery book club is determined to find answers. With Arlo's help, they may just be able to crack the case.


This is everything that a cozy mystery should be. There are fun, eccentric characters, a small-town setting, and mysterious occurrences needing to be explained. Author Amy Lillard has included all of these in A Murder Between the Pages and she offers ample clues to help us solve the mystery. I loved that the main characters belong to a book club and while they are sometimes overly eager to find out what is going on, they are very capable in doing just that! Arlo, the bookstore owner, certainly has her hands full trying to keep these grandmothers with absolutely no filters under control!

If you are looking for a fun, entertaining mystery that will keep you guessing until the end, you will want to read this book. It is the second book in Lillard's Main Street Book Club Mysteries series but I didn't feel like I was left out by not having read the first.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book. There was no requirement for a positive review and no monetary compensation was given. These are my own thoughts. 

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
