It was supposed to be a “Celebration of Gothic Novels” but somehow it ended in murder instead. Amy-Faye Johnson is in charge of organizing all the events associated with the event, but the authors attending are proving to quite difficult. Amy-Faye and the Readaholics set out to investigate. Does one of the visiting authors harbor a secret worth killing for?
I love Amy-Faye and the rest of the Readaholics so it was with great pleasure that I dived into THE READAHOLICS AND THE GOTHIC GALA! Maud is still my favorite character as I love her quirky personality and ability to see conspiracies everywhere. I like that we get a bit more insight into her character and her history, as we meet some of her former college friends in THE READAHOLICS AND THE GOTHIC GALA.
THE READAHOLICS AND THE GOTHIC GALA is the third book in the Book Club Mystery series but can easily be read as a standalone. REBECCA is one of my all-time favorite classics, so I was thrilled to see the combination of a great series and a great classic. And oh, Laura DiSilverio does a magnificent job at weaving the classic story of REBECCA into the plotline of THE READAHOLICS AND THE GOTHIC GALA! If you like gothic novels and mysteries, then you’re in for a real treat with this book!
