This is one book club meeting that doesn't go by the book.

When octogenarian sleuth Myrtle Clover discovers Naomi Pelter's dead body during a book club meeting, the other members seem shocked. But Myrtle can read between the lines. Naomi had riled everyone up by flirting with other people's husbands, arguing with neighbors, and generally making a nuisance of herself. Murdering troublemakers is the oldest trick in the book.

The book club members seem too sweet to be killers, but Myrtle knows better than to judge books by their covers. Myrtle's investigation into the murder will take a more novel approach than her police chief son's by-the-book methods. Can Myrtle and her widower sidekick uncover the killer...before he writes them off for good?

(This mystery will be uploaded on Wednesdays. If you can't wait for the next installment, the completed book can be found on Amazon: https://tinyurl.com/o6wn4sk ) . The series is also available on Amazon India: https://tinyurl.com/ohdbffq . Thanks!

Kamila

Highest Ranking: 2 in Historical Fiction, 30 in Fantasy I looked up and saw him for what Father truly was. He looked tired and for the first time I saw how little he cared about them. His thoughts were elsewhere as he looked longingly at his two rings on his ring finger. Pharaoh was suppose to resemble a god and as I looked upon him now he was but a mortal, lost and weak. "This seems very important to you Father," I said carefully. He looked at me with sad eyes. "This alliance is very important to me, Kamila. It shall benefit our country. Orbus is a very powerful country, probably the most powerful in the world." I nodded in agreement even though I knew nothing of the extent of Orbus' power. "You may not understand now Kamila, but you will soon. You are smart, the smartest and most favored of my daughters. I need you to learn and study as much as you can for the good of our country. I invited them hoping we could unite our nations..." he trailed off and played with his gold ring. "And you hope to unite our nations through marriage?" I understood it all now. The question is who was he going to offer to Prince Atticus? Heat began to rise within me. "Precisely," he smiled slightly. There was no one in the room but us. It was empty where no one but a few servants could hear us. "I intend to marry Jamila off to Prince Atticus." That's when my heart sank. -------- Kamila... a name that suited the princess of Ancient Beliba for she was perfection. She was born with beauty from the gods, but when she meets a godly prince she must learn from their encounter that beauty is not only what a princess needs. A princess needs to be clever, and a fourteen year old such as herself was not so. Well... she was until she met him... Her ancient kingdom is becoming a place filled with snakes trying to snake their way to the crown. Will Kamila fill the prophecy of the gods to unite two powerful nations? Or will she fail?
