How glad I am that Open Road Media is re-releasing this charming debut in a series about the misadventures of an unfortunate literary agent and single mom, Charlie Greene! Charlie, heroine of Murder at Moot Point, proves infectiously likable, and readers will chuckle as she repeatedly evades the sheriff and his deputies in order to conduct her own investigation into a murder.

Charlie has come to Moot Point, Oregon, a New Age haven, in order to conduct some business with a new client for her firm,
My Thoughts

Charlie Greene, a Hollywood agent, travels to Moot Point, Oregon, to track down a client who hasn't been replying to her mail. Shortly after arriving, she is surprised to find a dead woman beneath her car. With all the clues pointing her way, Charlie knows that she's the only one convinced that she's innocent. And who else to gather as much information as possible to smoke out the real killer.

“Quirky” definitely fits, though I'm not sure that “suspenseful” does. And that's OK by me.

Love the title of this book. The story is about murder at Moot Point, Oregon.
Charlie Green (female) is a book agent. She is sent to the town to check out a relative of one of
her clients who has a book draft for her to check out. It is a dark and foggy night when she arrives in Moot Point. A woman's body and her cruched bike are found under Charlie's car. No one, especially the attractive sheriff, can believe she would run over a woman and not feel it. Then it is discovered the woman had been s

Moot Point Oregon is full of odd characters. Charlie Green goes there on a foggy night to sign a new author for a publishing company she works for. Within a very short time a body is found under her car and a crumpled bike near by. What happened, who is framing her and why? A real thriller! How did I miss this book when it came out in 1992? I'm glad I found it.
A fun romp in the Pacific Northwest, in a town full of new-agers. I picked this book because of its "punny" title, and the author manages to restrict herself to only two uses of the obvious fun-poking pun throughout the book. A quirky not-quite romance, and I did enjoy it.

Pleasant if small read; a few chuckles.

Not, I admit, as insignificant as I suspected when, by error, I got it at the library.

Surprised this was originally published in the 90s - it felt way more 70s or 80s. It's not great - too long, too byzantine - but not the worst thing ever, either.

Very good mystery

This book was a very good mystery, but a little wordy. It seemed to take a long while to get anywhere and became repetitious. I did enjoy reading it anyway.
