3.5 star rating rounded up to 4 stars
Can’t Judge a Book By Its Murder is the first book in Amy Lillard’s Main Street Book Club Mysteries series. The beginning of the book was slow and a bit rough. As with most first in series books, a lot of time is devoted to introducing readers to the characters. The cast of characters are likable, including an Amazon parrot, and the set-up includes a love triangle I hope will not continue to overshadow the mystery in future books.

Arlo Stanley and Chloe Carter are the owners of Books & More in the small town of Sugar Springs, Mississippi. As the town prepares for their Tenth Annual All School Class Reunion, the body of one of the attendees, bestselling author, Wally Harrison, is found on the sidewalk in front of the bookstore. The death is classified as suspicious, and Police Chief Matthew “Mads” Keller focuses his attention on Chloe. Not only does the evidence point at her, but she shares a past, including a son, with Wally. Three senior citizens, Helen Johnson, Fern Conley, and Camille Kinney, who are members of the book club Arlo recently started, decide to read Wally’s book, but quickly change their focus to helping Arlo prove Chloe’s innocence.

I received an Advance Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and voluntarily reviewed it.
