    I have been looking forward to this cozy for months! I came across it on Amazon over the summer and was immediately intrigued by it. So I was thrilled at the chance to be able to review it early through NetGalley. It was a solid cozy. Good characters and an exciting mystery with severa...

    November 11. 2018 DID NOT FINISH Stopped at 20% [Read some of the end and it was just so ludicrous I am so glad I didn't waste my time]. ZERO STARS!!!! First, I am glad that I got this as a NetGalley ARC and that I didn't actually pay money for it. Second, I am VERY glad that...

    I enjoyed this book quite a lot. It had a few issues here and there that ultimately affected my rating, but overall it was a pretty decent read. The mystery was fantastically written and definitely the high point of the book. It certainly had me guessing right until the en...

    This new series was a really fun read, there was a lot more suspense in this book than most cozies; it all began at the very beginning of chapter one, when Addie is almost run over by a speeding car. It gets very interesting from then on and doesn't slow down...Addie is part of her bra...

    Murder by the Book by Lauren Elliott was an engaging beginning to a new cozy series that I had difficulty putting down. I thought Addie was a very strong and resourceful young woman who has managed to keep moving forward in spite of the tragedies in her past. Her new friend, Serena,...

    With MURDER BY THE BOOK, the new Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery Series gets off to an impressive start. The solidly drawn characters and a thoroughly complex plot make it one of my best reads of 2018. Addie brings baggage with her as she begins a new life in Greyborne Harbor, a N...

    Addie has moved to a little New England town to open a bookstore after her aunt's death. The best present of all is the numerous first editions her aunt owned. Unfortunately, not everyone in town is appreciative of a Greybourne continuing the Greybourne legacy. One woman, in particular...

    The story started off with promise, but it began to get clunky and felt disjointed at times when discussing some of the back story and revealing each character (which there were a lot to keep track of). I like the relationship/friendship between Addie and Serena. It's fun and quite end...

    This first in a new cozy mystery series hits the ground running! I like many things about this clever cozy mystery, beginning with the setting of a New England old/ rare books and curios bookstore. The mystery is complex, with plot twists that include outrageous treachery from those wh...

    This is the debut cozy mystery for Lauren Elliott in the Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery series. I think the series and the author have promise. Addie Greyborne is a likable protagonist. She is observant, independent and looking for a place to heal from a number of tragedies that she...

    A wonderful read full of amazing characters! This book had me hooked from the first page. The mystery was well written, the characters were well rounded. Nothing was given away early, and the end game of the mystery was not one that you were able to guess. A book that I would read agai...

    The first in a new series and new author for me. The story starts out with a lot of action but the narrative did not flow smoothly making difficult to follow at times. The number of characters introduced made it hard to follow the main line and needed more development. A lot of time wa...

    Murder by the Book by Lauren Elliott is the first book in the cozy Beyond the Page Bookstore Mystery series. Well, I'm going to call this one a cozy mystery as it does have the elements there but it also felt a bit like romantic suspense too.  Addison Greyborne had not been having...

    This was a light, fairly fast, mostly fun read, but very much a novice writer. Too many bitten lips & putting of a strand of hair behind an ear on the romance side, it called attention to itself and made the romantic scenes feel clunky to me. I liked the bookstore & the rare bo...
