Ellison sure has a knack for finding dead people–and Julie Mulhern has a knack for writing outstanding stories. You might think that it’s tough to keep the mystery magic happening in the ninth book of a particular series, but, at least in the case of the Country Club Murders, you’d be wrong.
In Telephone Line, my favorite seventies socialite is back in the swing of things planning a big gala event. (Another reason I enjoy and relate to Ellison-she’s a fundraiser like me!) As her stress levels climb, she tries to relax and unwind with a yoga class. It almost works . . . and then the yoga instructor is murdered. Try as she might to avoid becoming embroiled in another investigation, Ellison is pulled in–and soon the body count rises.
There is so much I enjoy about this book, including seeing the familiar faces of favorite characters, animal antics, Mr. Coffee, and, of course, Anarchy Jones. Julie Mulhern writes with humor and wit and creates clever and intriguing mysteries to solve. Easy to see why this series remains a personal favorite!
