    • Death in Dark Blue was filled heartfelt romance and love. Lena's love of writing shines through when recieving Advanced Reader Copies of her' and Camilla's first book the Salsburg Train but the writing theme was written as an afterthought to me unlike the first book in the series which I missed. Author Julia Buckley captured Crime, intrigue and suspense with every page. The plot was slow-moving but steady and the plot twist at the end of this story has me wanting to read the next book in the ser [...]

    • Book 2 did continue the storyline from Book 1 of the Writer's Apprentice, A Dark and Stormy Night. Unfortunately, part of the mystery is solved but it immediately transitions into what will be in the next book or perhaps book 4. What happened seemed too hurried to already be happening. That is not a good thing for this reader, because I am okay with a 2 part cliffhanger but not more than that. I am finding it difficult to even like the 2 main characters who just seem off to me.

    • If there were one author that has started being published (traditionally) in the last two years that I would have to call my favorite, it would be Julia Buckley. I am caught up on both of her series, and every book I've read of hers has been high-quality, solid mysteries with stand-out characters and engaging plots.In Death in Dark Blue Lena has once again found herself in the middle of a mystery. Lena is the perfect MC; she isn't shy about investigating, but she isn't sneaky or obnoxious about [...]

    • Julia Buckley has delivered an engaging and suspenseful second installment in the Writer's Apprentice Mystery series with a gothic feel, a touch of romance and a complex and layered mystery that is woven throughout the story. I am one of those readers who has to read a series in order, even if they can be read as a stand alone. That is not the case with this series. I would highly suggest that you read book one first. I, personally, don't feel like these are stand alone books as there is a secon [...]

    • Once upon a time, cozy mysteries used to be just pieces of fluff with little effort in characterization. No more. This is only the second book in the series and already I'm hooked. Ms Buckley does a great job of not tying all her loose ends up at the end of the book. Yes, we know whodunnit at the end but there is so much more to these little books.They're great fun with all the things you expect in a cozy. A main character who has a habit of stumbling upon bodies and can't let the mystery go (i. [...]

    • This second book in this gothic cozy mystery series is even better than the first!The story picks up from where the first book left off so I strongly suggest you read them in order.The characters I enjoyed so much in the first book return along with some new intriguing ones.From the first page this story grabbed me and what a ride!It had an intriguing plot, colourful and interesting characters, a fabulous small town location, romance, and a whodunit filled with twists. I hope this series continu [...]

    • Oh my! What a sequel to A Dark and Stormy Murder! I'm so glad that the author didn't leave us haning with what happened to Victoria; she picked up where she left off in the first book.There were so many twists and turns but it wasn't hard to keep up. I can't believe how slimy a newsman Ted Strayer was! He killed Taylor to keep the story going about Sam and Victoria West! And, he tried to kill Jake and Lena. This is a great book and ZI recommend it to anyone who loves mysteries. But I advise you [...]

    • Gripping story filled with twists and turnsLena London is a strong, determined character who will stop at nothing for those she cares about.Sam West has won Lena's heart and after a year of being looked at as a murderer, it's time for Sam to let Lena into his heart.Digging deeply into the mysterious disappearance of Sam's wife leads Lena into a investigation so bizarre, it will leave the reader breathless.A Greek millionaire, hidden yachts, and his obsessive behaviors are just a few things that [...]

    • This is definitely a sequel to the underlying sub-plot to A Dark and Stormy Murder, which is a good mystery, but means that this isn't really a truly stand-alone book. Moreover, given the blatant cliff-hanger ending, book three will probably end up as part of this unofficial "trilogy". Hopefully she'll finish this plot line then and give the characters somewhere new to go, as they have plenty of potential. I also like the fact that for the most part, they do actually let the policeman do his job [...]

    • I'm so disappointed in Death in Dark Blue. Instead of a cozy mystery, I felt like I was reading a romance novel. Lena London, the protagonist, should have been consumed with her career as a collaborator with novelist Camilla Graham and the murder that occurred in her backyard. But nope, she was busy chasing Victoria West, the estranged wife of her love interest Sam. Oh, and sleeping over at Sam's house, romantic dates with Sam, and of course, daydreaming about Sam. It appears that this story wil [...]

    • Life has been good lately for Lena London. She has her dream job - collaborating with suspense novelist Camilla Graham. Her boyfriend Sam West has been cleared of charges of murdering his estranged wife Victoria who is very much alive. Unfortunately, one of Victoria's friends, Taylor Brand, isn't so lucky - her body is found near Sam's house and it looks like she was murdered. Once again Lena finds she has to clear Sam's name - putting her own life in danger.“Death in Dark Blue” is the wonde [...]

    • I really like this second-in-series mystery! The characters are a delight; Camilla and Lena are a fine working team who have bonded as friends rather than simply employer-employee. I also like Belinda, the research librarian. Oh that I were much younger again and the internet available to everyone, I might have taken a different path as I love what she does and is able to find!The mystery becomes layered onto the one we begin the novel with - first, to find where Sam West's estranged wife is and [...]

    • I'm a huge fan of this series. I enjoy the ongoing mystery that links the books together beyond just the characters and their location. I enjoy the characters and I find the mystery based in each book is engaging and well-thought-out.

    • I will put it out there up front - I don't like how this book ended.I have been waiting for this book to come out since I finished the first in the series. I loved Lena London and Blue Lake. And I really did enjoy most of this book just not the ending.I like the development of the characters relationships. The murder of Taylor Brand was interesting to figure out. I like Belinda, the researcher. I don't like the direction the Victoria West story ends with.The book is definitely good just don't be [...]

    • I am seriously annoyed. I enjoyed 90% of this book, and was prepared to review it by saying that although it isn't a typical cozy mystery, it was intriguing and a good read. However, instead of stopping when the mystery is solved and the characters have resolved most of their difficulties, the author adds a had-I-but-known moment, followed by the amateur sleuth behaving in a reprehensible manner, leading up to the start of a brand new mystery that, one supposes, will be solved in the next book i [...]

    • Death in Dark Blue by Julia Buckley is the second novel in A Writer’s Apprentice Mystery series. Lena London lives with famous author Camilla Graham in Blue Lake, Indiana. She is happy that her boyfriend, Sam West is returning to town after being gone for the last month. Sam has been in New York searching for his missing wife, Victoria with the help of a private investigator. Taylor Brand, a friend of Victoria’s and a blogger, stated on her blog that she would be coming to Blue Lake to apolo [...]

    • Running parallel to quotes at the beginning of each chapter from the fictional novel Death on the Danube written, I believe, by the main characters of the book - Camille Graham and her personal assistant and collaborator, Lena London. The reader is given a slight taste as to what will unfold in the subsequent pages and will open the door to the body that is found and the upheaval that is brought to them all. Continuing from the last book ‘A Dark and Stormy Murder’, Sam West, their semi reclu [...]

    • Lena London has settled into life as assistant to well-known and respected Camilla Graham, Lena’s favorite mystery suspense author. Their first collaborative novel is published, naming Lena as co-author, a momentous event for her, but life in Blue Lake, Indiana, is far from peaceful.Lena discovered proof that Camilla’s neighbor Sam West did not kill his wife, Victoria. As a result, Taylor Bland, a blogger who has been accusing Sam of that act apologizes to Sam online and intends to do so in [...]

    • Just not written in an enjoyable fashionFor a book about writers this is just not written well. I think I figured out what this issue is though. the book is,written as though it's a movie. The narrative works better as voice-over narration. The dialogue that is just overwrought, overworked, and frankly over the top on the page would work better on the big or small screen. Although the elements of language and dialogue fail on the page, I can see how they would almost work on screen. Think Sinead [...]

    • I enjoyed book two in the writer's apprentice series as much as the first book.I like pretty much all the characters in this series. They feel like real people, and they act in sensible, intelligent ways, even during dramatic upsetting situations. It's nice once in a while for cozy characters to not continually do dumb, irritating things.The mystery in this second book was sort of a continuation of what happened in the first book, but things have progressed, and the characters are living their l [...]

    • In this second novel of the series, ( A Writer's Apprentice,) we find burgeoning author, Lena London enjoying her first co-authorship with the noted Camilla Graham. Not only is Lena's career doing well, her romance with the previously shunned financial wizard, Sam West is starting to truly show promise.Previously, Lena and Camilla had been the only friends that Sam had as he was wrongly suspected of murdering his soon-to-be ex-wife, Victoria. Lena through diligent seeking found Victoria to be st [...]
