I recently finished a very enjoyable cozy mystery by three authors, two of whom are very good friends. Amy Barkman and I were both included in a multi-author signing in Frankfort last November where I bought this book. Tracy Ruckman and I met at a booksigning for Virginia Smith's (Amy's daughter's) first book several years ago. We have been prayer partners ever since. I've never met Debbie Roome, since she lives in New Zealand, but because she is friends with Amy and Tracy, I'm sure she is a wonderful person, too!
If you like cozy mysteries you will LOVE this book! Each story is set at a fictional campground in the author's area--Amy's in Kentucky, Debbie's in New Zealand, and Tracy's in Georgia. And each murder mystery centers around a "board" game, hence the title Board to Death. Plus there is another connection because all the board games came from a yard sale in the first book. And all the stories contain a romance, so I don't think you can go wrong with this book! The authors are very creative with their games and the names of the campgrounds and the characters. They already have a sequel coming out this summer.
