Book Description

Sept. 1 1996
One of America's most beloved mystery writers, Carolyn G. Hart, the Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity Award-winning author, returns to her original mystery
series that features Annie Darling, owner of the Death on Demand Bookstore, and her husband, Max, with Mint Julep Murder.

Normally, Annie Laurence Darling would be eagerly awaiting her trip to Head Island, where this year's Dixie Book Festival is being held. But this year Annie has agreed to be the author liaison to five authors honored with the much-coveted Dixie Book Festival Medallions, and she fears she is going to have her hands full juggling murderous egos. What Annie doesn't count on is the untimely death of ambitious Mint Julep Press publisher Kenneth Hazlitt. Hazlitt arrives at the Festival peddling a proposal for Song of the South, a trashy roman  clef that details the indiscretions of some famous Southern authors at a writers' conference--writers who more than resemble the Dixie Festival Medallion winners. When Hazlitt drops dead after drinking a hit of bourbon from his private stock, the evidence points to Annie--the fatal glass is imprinted with her fingerprints. As more and more evidence points her way, Annie and Max must act fast to catch a wily killer...before the police throw the book at Annie!

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In this paean to the cozy, Hart sets her lively amateur sleuth, bookstore owner Annie Darling (last seen in Southern Ghost), on a plot in which real mystery writers mix with fictional ones and most of the plentiful potshots are verbal. At the annual Dixie Book Festival, held on Hilton Head island, Annie has agreed to act as liaison for the five authors being presented with festival Medallions. The diverse honorees are a flame-haired author of Civil War novels; a handsome, smug writer of a bestselling male romance; a plump and unassuming woman who pens domestic murder mysteries; the cool author of a popular cozy series; and a loud, heavy-drinking redneck polemicist. Each one has reason to be distressed when the publisher of Mint Julep Press announces his plans to write a roman a clef about Southern writers. When the publisher dies at his own party, after downing some poisoned bourbon, Annie and her charges are all prime suspects. While her husband Max supplements her own reckless sleuthing, Annie must also cope with the determined attempts of her mother-in-law and two writing friends to snag publishers for their efforts. Casting probability to the winds, Hart wraps her light tale in a deliciously inviting setting and offers mystery readers a winsome treat.

From Library Journal

While ensconced on Broward's Rock Island, South Carolina, mystery bookstore owner and amateur sleuth Annie Darling serves as author liaison for the Dixie Book Festival on Hilton Head. Problems arise when a self-serving, small-time publisher promises to write a scandalous roman a clef featuring Annie's five charges?all quite famous. After the would-be writer dies of poisoning, all evidence points to Annie. When the beautiful, well-married, sexy, and witty Annie begins her quest for the truth, how can she lose? Ebullient tone, fascinating supporting characters, and attention to food and other details recommend this for most collections.

4.0 out of 5 stars Annie goes to the Dixie Book Festival June 29 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Annie Darling, proprietor of the bookstore Death on Demand, goes to the Dixie Book Festival, where many southern authors are being featured. She agrees to be an author liason for the five authors who are to receive special awards at the Festival. Publisher Kenneth Hazlitt, a book publisher, arrives and announces that he is writing a "tell-all" expose of the five authors who are being honored. When Hazlitt is poisoned, Annie reasons that it must be one of the five authors, but the local police chief uses circumstantial evidence to accuse Annie! She investigates each of the authors and finds that they all have something to hide. She also announces that she will now take over the book that Hazlitt had threatened to write, in order to flush out the murderer, much to her husband Max's dismay. This is another book in the charming Death on Demand series featuring Hart's delightful couple, Max and Annie Darling. Cozy readers will enjoy this book, as well as the others in the series.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very fun read! Aug. 18 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a very enjoyable book, as are all the the Death on Demand titles. As in A Little Class on Murder, Henny, Miss Dora and Laurel join forces (they've all written books and are looking for publishers!) to "help" Annie and Max solve the mystery and to try to drive Annie batty in the process. You'll enjoy it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a fun romp! May 2 2007
By S. Schwartz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
These books by Carolyn Hart are lots of fun. They make for nice light mystery reading. This book is set on Hilton Head Island, and Ms. Hart shows her love for this island in the writing of this book. There's lots of sleaze and glamour when Annie and her husband Max attend a Southern Book Fair on this island. If I have a complaint about these books, it is that each one always puts Annie or her nearest and dearest as prime suspects in the murder. Why can't they just try to solve a murder because it happens in their vicinity, not because one of them is suspected of killing someone? But the books are still fun, and I always enjoy the references to mystery writers and mystery books made throughout each book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time or money! Oct. 24 2013
By Thomas Barrett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
ok i want to write a letter to the author telling her i will never purchase another of her books because of the gratuitous way in which she slanders conservatives. I don't know the demographics of the audience for mystery "cozies" which is what this is, but I guess it must be overwhelmingly liberal.

I see no reason to shell out money to have my political beliefs insulted. Hart makes conservatives out to be:

alcoholic
sneaky
swaggering
cowardly
ill-mannered
frauds

And while this makes for a good "red herring" in the book, she's lost a customer in me.

Not to mention--and this is perhaps more important for this crowd--the book is not well written. It is I think 9th in a series and by this time apparently Hart was just "phoning it in" so to speak. There is not even a single Mint Julep in the whole book! How misleading is that????

And the motive for the crime isn't revealed until the next to last chapter--no way anyone could have solved it just by reading it.

So--DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY. Buy a good Dorothy L. Sayers or Agatha Christie--the classics never go out of style.
