Why read it?

1 author picked I Only Read Murder as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

I couldn’t help but root for Miranda Abbott, the hilariously self-absorbed heroine of I Only Read Murder.

I Only Read Murder is ridiculously entertaining, a very fun romp that takes full advantage of the cozy mystery tropes we all love.
