Murder By Page One by Olivia Matthews– REVIEW


About the book. 

If you love Hallmark mystery movies,

you’ll love this cozy mystery

with humor, intrigue, and a librarian amateur sleuth.


Marvey, a librarian, has moved from Brooklyn to a quirky small town in Georgia. When she’s not at the library organizing events for readers, she’s handcrafting book-themed jewelry and looking after her cranky cat. At times, her new life in the South still feels strange…and that’s before the discovery of the dead body in the bookstore.


After one of her friends becomes a suspect, Marvey sets out to solve the murder mystery. She even convinces Spence, the wealthy and charming newspaper owner, to help. With his ties to the community, her talents for research, and her fellow librarians’ knowledge, Marvey pursues the truth. But as she gets closer to it, could she be facing a deadly plot twist?


This first in series cozy mystery includes a free Hallmark original recipe for Classic Peach Cobbler.

And I thought 

I always enjoy getting into a new series right from the beginning.  Especially when I enjoy the book and the characters so much.

Author Olivia Matthews brings the reader an an interesting somewhat quietly group of town folk. The town of Peach Coast sounds like a great place to live except murder is a foot.

And a great lead character Marvey (what an interesting name) is easy to like.  I enjoyed her hobby of jewelry making. 

Murder By Page One was indeed a page turner and kept me up reading well into the night.

I can't wait to visit Peach Coast again.

I received a complimentary copy.

My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
