For fans of Hallmark Mysteries, Agatha Raisin, and Stephanie Plum, A DAGGER AMONG FRIENDS is an amateur sleuth mystery novel where the entire town concocts wild theories and tramples the evidence all to find out Whodunit.
The plot is a humorous and loving take on mystery tropes:
“I solved it!” They beamed, gasping and thrusting out their chest.
“Running blindly into the killer’s grasp is called being a victim.”
The main character, Charlie Goode, is in her 40s and has recently split from her long-time boyfriend. Starting over in her small hometown of Harvest Falls, she spends time playing board games with her cousin Case, and working for her father, the chief of police.
Board games and 80s movie references are littered throughout the book. After all, every sleuth needs a hobby!
“You need a hobby.” He beamed. “That’s an actual thing. All sleuths have hobbies—baking, quilting, cat herding. It helps with the process.”
I thought for a moment before perking up. “I play board games,” I said. “But I’m not sure how that helps.” I lofted my whiskey, stared at my playing cards: a cattle ranch and the cooperage I’d built beside it. “Seems like a distraction.”
