Format: Mass Market Paperback
“<b>Death On Demand</b>” is a store, series, and introductory book. Wonderful detail is built into the foreground, background, and characters; whom I know will turn me into a fan. My first foray produced fewer stars, mostly due to what I dub ‘first volume blues’. Authors need to fiddle a while to make pieces fit, lay the scene out for us, and explain a bunch of personal history. A good series will bring more excitement with succeeding titles and that’s what higher feedback is for.

One fly in the ointment was euthanasia. It’s against my beliefs, the most uncomfortable subject for me. Although that act didn’t occur, a killing fluid was discussed in conjunction with the mystery. Enjoyment was impossible at those points, a detail I prefer never hearing of. That’s a fluke and it will have no bearing on any more novels, which I expect to devour. I collected most of them over several years. The things I love immediately include the most memorable fictional bookshop to date. As a crime site examined with a fine tooth comb, I picture the layout exceptionally well. The food station, organization, cups bearing famous mystery titles, the bird in the entrance, and of course the kitty. The location: a South Carolina island and tree houses, evoke a vivid landscape that seems surreal and beautifully calm at the same time.

The sheriff’s animosity is abnormal but everything else about the mystery and antagonistic victim come together extremely well. There’s a breathless feel to its resolution, with befuddlement over a peculiar cast of closed-in characters. I love the focused interviews at each home. The atmosphere of earliest computer ownership was fun to recall. The loving childhood with <i>Annie’s</i> uncle creates a warm history and I like our heroine. <b>Carolyn G. Hart</b> has lured me, unquestionably.

Ireally enjoyed this book. I loved when I saw all the names of different mystery writers whose stories I have read in the past. Her characters were real and funny. The first book I read by Carolyn Hart was Death Walked In. Lots of references were made to past crimes solved by Max and Annie and I am anxious to read them. That is why I bought this book, so I could start from before they were married. I love mysteries that are entertaining and I was hoping this would be one of them. When I buy a mystery novel I hope it's one that I can't put down. This was one! Will buy more by this author. She's a great writer!

Annie Laurance runs a mystery book store, Death on Demand, which she inherited from her beloved uncle. Once a week she has a meeting of the Sunday Night Regulars, local mystery writers from the South Carolina island where she lives. One of the writers, Elliot Morgan is a disagreeable fellow who threatens to reveal things about his fellow writers which they would prefer to keep quiet. Before he has a chance to do so he is killed, presumably by one of the Sunday Night Regulars. The local police suspect it is Annie herself but with her friend Max Darling, she sets out to find the real murderer. Max and Annie discover that each of the Regulars has avoided a brush with the law and each has something to hide which Elliot could have known about. There are lots of wonderful references to classic mysteries and mystery writers as Annie and Max work to solve the case. This is the first book of a justly popular series.

Since milieu is such an important part of a mystery novel, avid mystery readers will like Hart's Death on Demand book store and the cozy little island community in which it is located. Most of the characters are mystery novelists, and if the crimes and solutions are not brain teasers of the first order, mystery fans will enjoy the familiar references.

Overall, I felt that this book was fun and clever, but certain elements of it, like the literary name-dropping, could be annoying at times. What got me, though, were all the little errors, even when they didn't really have anything to do with anything. Just as an example: In 1987, when this book came out, School of the Ozarks had not yet changed its name to College of the Ozarks, and it is located south of Branson, *not* in the town of Ozark, which is some distance *north* of Branson. I know, minor errors in the grand scheme of things, but if those are the easy facts to check, I have to wonder what all else Hart screwed up.
