About the Book: 

Librarian Carter Matheson is determined to enjoy himself on a Scottish bus tour for fans of mystery author Dame Vanessa Rayburn. Sure, his ex, Trevor, will also be on the trip with his new boyfriend, leaving Carter to share a room with a stranger, but he can’t pass up a chance to meet his favorite author.

Carter’s roommate turns out to be John Knight, a figure as mysterious as any character from Vanessa’s books. His strange affect and nighttime wanderings make Carter suspicious. When a fellow traveler’s death sparks rumors of foul play, Carter is left wondering if there’s anyone on the tour he can trust.

Drawn into the intrigue, Carter searches for answers, trying to fend off his growing attraction toward John. But as unexplained tragedies continue, the whole tour must face the fact that there may be a murderer in their midst—but who?

Why I’m dying to read this:

Josh Lanyon is an auto-read author for me.  I stalk her Goodreads book page, just waiting for any updates on new releases.  In the next few months she has two coming out.  Technically I’m more excited for the fourth Holmes and Moriarity book coming out at the end of April, but I chose not to highlight that one because it doesn’t have much of a synopsis yet.  Plus, the cover of Murder Takes the High Road is fantastic!  It looks like an old school mystery novel. It even has the classic murder mystery tagline!

It’s Carina Press, so I’ll be checking NetGalley daily for an ARC!

About Birdie

Don’t look for her in any bar, club, crazy raging party, or anywhere there may be a large gathering of strangers. She’s more likely to be found tucked into the corner of the couch watching one of her favorite shows, or preferably under a comforter with her current novel.
