    At first, I wondered if I would like this book because the plot seemed really different, however; new author, J.C. Eaton, skillfully maneuvered the plot with a strong, logically thinking protagonist, Sophie 'Phee' Kimball, making the story irresistible for me. The clues are interspersed with humor making this a swiftly moving read.

    BOOKED 4 MURDER is a mystery too good to 4get!Starting a new book can be hard. When that book is the first in a new series? Well, it can be even harder.

I was completely hooked from the first chapter. If this first installment in the series is an example of what is to follow, this series is going to run for a long time.I m [...]

    An entertaining mystery the first in the Sophia Kimball series. I had trouble at first getting into the story. Part way into the book I got involved in the story and found myself turning the pages to see the answer. However, I found the characters one-dimensional and not very interesting. This makes the book hard to rate. My rating is 3.5 stars.Phee works for the police department as an accountant in her hometown. Her Mother lives in Sun City West, Arizona and belongs to a book club. The monthly [...]

    *I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review from Kensington and Netgalley*A winning first book in a series, Booked 4 Murder is the start to a series that i am sure to continue reading!Sophie was an absolutely wonderful character. She wasn't young, there was no love interest at all (which was amazing!), and she blatantly investigated. Three things that are atypical, but that--combined together--worked! Sophie's mother wasn't sassy or crotchety, another deviation from th [...]

    Book #79 Read in 2017Booked 4 Murder by J C EatonThis is the first book in a cozy mystery series. Phee does accounts payable for a police department.

    Fantastic cozy!~An excellent first book in the series. I loved how well written this was. A ton of action and mystery. Loved the characters and the creative title and story. Love that gorgeous cover, I mean its one of the best Ive seen in a while!5 stars from me!

    Bel libro, con uno stile frizzante: più di una volta mi sono ritrovata col sorriso sulle labbra. Non male la storia gialla. Poi, forse per le temperature estreme di questi giorni, mi sono veramente immedesimata nella protagonista che dal fresco del Minnesota si ritrova nell'assolata Arizona: fra l'altro, il libro è ambientato in una cittadina vicino a Phoenix e durante il mio bellissimo viaggio nei parchi americani ho patito veramente il caldo solamente nella mezza giornata che abbiamo passato [...]

    A great kickoff to a new series! This story written by husband and wife, James E. Clapp and Ann I. Goldfarb is set in a senior community in Sun City West, Arizona, and is often laugh out loud funny. The rest of my time was spent [figuratively] shaking my head at the antics of these characters.I can't wait to see what happens next in book #2 in this series, Ditched for Murder!!

    Booked 4 Murder, by J C Eaton has everything I like in a cozy - a mystery that keeps you guessing, humor (Mother and the book club crew were hoots!), a relatable heroine who had life experience and of course, a wonderfully crabby little dog! Phee Kimball is a good daughter. When her mother calls Phee with the news that her book club has started reading a cursed book and the members are dropping like flies, Phee is on the way to sunny Arizona to find out what's happening. The final showdown in th [...]

    I absolutely enjoyed this book. It was a cute, quick read that kept me guessing until the very end. I loved all the twists and turns.

    I've been on a roll with fantastic cozies this year but the last few have been a little flat. However, as soon as I started this one I knew my luck was changing. This mystery was so much fun! Phee is not your typical amateur detective. She's a little bit older than usual and while she does work for the police department her primary investigations involve tracking down receipts and she likes it that way. She has no interest in solving a mystery that she's pretty sure is amazing until a friend (wh [...]

    Loved Sophie Kimball! Great first book in a series. Having to go to Arizona on the crazy whim of her mother is not Sophie's idea of a vacation. Her mother is convinced there is a book curse causing members of her book club to die. Now Sophie has to play sleuth to find out. A wonderful story that mystery readers will want to read. The next one is on my must-read list.

    What a FUN book and I laughed a few times. The ending was a little convoluted to me but it didn't take away from the enjoyment

    I enjoyed Booked 4 Murder by J.C. Eaton. The book was funny and entertaining. I look forward to reading more in this series.

    This is a fabulous first in series by a husband and wife team! The setting is Sun City West, Arizona, and I live very close to it. Loved reading street names and restaurants that sound familiar. The plot has an abundance of twists and turns right through the very end, reminding me of a ball of yarn that several kittens have a battle with. The authors, however, have it well under control at all times and execute it with finesse.Phee (Sophie) Kimball is an accountant with the police department in [...]

    An interesting story that featured a set of hipsters at their young age of eighty plus, the characters of this book were a unique and interesting bunch. Harriet Plunkett continuously nagged her daughter Sophia to leave her accounting job at the police station for a while, to come and investigate the curse that was on a book her book club was discussing, which as she puts, it killed three of their members in one month, she didn’t want to be the next on the list to die. To appease her mom Phee t [...]

The members of her mother's, Booked 4 Murder book club, seem to be dropping like flies! Is their monthly book choice cursed? This book was well written and included references to popular television sh [...]

    This book was just ok. After I read the synopsis, I thought I'd really love the book, but I found it very slow-moving at most times. There were a lot of dated references in the book that seemed out of place considering the setting is in the present. And the main character "talked" to herself way too much throughout the book, which was very awkward to read. The mystery itself was very promising in the beginning, but because the story was so slow in pace, I stopped caring about the big reveal long [...]
