Review of "How to Get a Literary Agent in Two Murders or Less"

 How to Get a Literary Agent in Two Murders or Less is a witty plunge into the world of publishing, romance and mystery. The mismatch of characters work perfectly together and take the reader on a roller coaster ride into the mayhem of murder. The plot moves along with rich prose and snappy dialogue. The storyline clips along at a smooth pace.

In the story, Amanda Anderson, a hopeful writer, packs up her clothes, manuscripts and life and heads off to a writer's conference, hoping to be discovered, not realizing in more ways than she can imagine.  She meets the famous writer Jonny Goodsnuff, crosses the path of some wild step-daughters, makes a few quirky friends and meets a few handsome hunks.  Her life becomes a series of ups and down, with the valleys getting deeper and deeper.  In the end she fights not only for her existence but for the lives of her friends.

I highly recommend Ellie Burmeister's novel How to Get a Literary Agent in Two Murders or Less. The story drew me in, kept me laughing and held my attention, wondering who did it.  This mystery definitely deserves a high shelf in library.
