Meet Alexa Hartfield, one of Fairbury's most eligible bachelorettes, not to mention fashion connoisseur and celebrity author. She seems to have everything going for her... until someone starts replicating the murders she writes in real life. Can the police end this killing spree, or will this be the end of Alexa's writing career?
Someone’s killing off Alexa Hartfield’s characters almost faster than she can.
They say not to tick off an author or she’ll write you into her book and kill you off. No one said anything about those annoying folks recreating the murders from her current work in progress!
Or, adding injury to murder, turning her life into a cliché in the process!
Officer Joe Friedan walks a beat on the safe streets of downtown Fairbury—except when he’s patrolling the neighborhoods or (lately), investigating another murder. Another murder inspired by their resident bestselling author.
Fairbury already attracts enough tourists (it’s the Mayberry vibe) and fans of (their famous but rapidly becoming infamous) author without flirting with every true-crime aficionado or serial killer groupie! He has to find this guy before Alexa becomes the next victim!
Manuscript for Murder: The first book in the Hartfield Mysteries offers a race to stop a killer and bring him to justice before anyone else dies in this contemporary mystery with (mostly) vintage fashion flair!
