Mayhem at the Orient Express

Most folks aren't forced by court order to attend a library book discussion group, but that's just what happens to B&B proprietor and ex-Manhattanite Bea Cartwright, hippy cat lover Chandra Morrisey, and vineyard owner Kate Wilder after a small-town magistrate has had enough of their squabbling.

Since their first read is Agatha Christie's Murder on the Orient Express, it's only natural the ladies each decide to visit their favorite local Chinese restaurant, the Orient Express, to shake off the bad vibes of the book group. But their meal is spoiled when the restaurant’s owner, Peter Chan, has the bad fortune of getting murdered. Now, with Christie as their inspiration, the League of Literary Ladies has a real mystery to solve…if they can somehow catch a killer without killing each other first.
