      Took a longer break than I thought with this But I finally finished it While continuing where I left off, it reminded me why I liked the first book and cozy mysteries in general The fast paced, the characters, the book covers and settings Oh and the mystery I guess Anyway, this was a good sequel I was going to give it a 3 but then near the end I upped the rating to a solid 4 Back in the mood to continue this series.

    4. Linda on said:

      These books just keep getting better I definitely liked Olivia better in this one So much went on in this book from the hurricane to the cliche killers and the upheaval in Olivia s personal life Some good changes seem to be in place for future books.

      I am really enjoying this series I love the characters they all feel very true to life and are people that I would want to hang out with and I love the dynamic of the book As I said in my previous review, this is a much cerebral kind of cozy there are still plenty of laughs and some of the characters are smart mouth and sassy which I love , but there is a smartness to these stories that is missing from your typical cozy They make you think, they make you feel and in this one, it made me cry Ver [...]

      People who read my reviews know I rarely give five stars, but I have to do so with this one I love this book and this series It s not often we get a protagonist like Olivia Limoges, especially in a cozy, who is so intelligent, independent, and strong willed and yet who is also quite damaged because of her childhood traumas Despite her losses, she s incredibly functional and slowly learning to be open and trusting, something that is not easy for her In the first book of the series, A KILLER PLOT [...]

      Ellery Adams has done it again in her second Books By The Bay Mystery, A Deadly Clich Great characters, a lovely setting, terrific plot, and Ellery has a gift for description that makes me green with envy I ve always had cats, but Captain Haviland is such a great character, I find myself yearning for a black Standard Poodle Light and dark moments are balanced in this compelling story, and Olivia s generosity to her friends and the citizens of Oyster Bay is heartwarming I can t wait for the next [...]

    11. Mare on said:

      This second installment in the Books by the Bay series is outstanding Ms Adams has a marvelous ability to bring incredibly engaging characters to life and make the reader care about those characters Each character has both good and bad traits so that the reader has no choice but to identify with them in one way or another For purely selfish reasons I hope that this series continues for many books just so that I know that I can visit Oyster Bay and it s residents again and again.

    12. Kaye on said:

      The cover of this book might lead some to think this is a very cozy cozy, which it s not I d call it a traditional mystery It s the second in a series which is already on my auto buy list.

      A Deadly Cliche by Ellery Adams brings the reader back to Oyster Bay With Ms Adams descriptive writing and complex characters I enjoyed every minute of this mystery The twists and turns as this mystery progressed kept me listening reading as I was clueless as to how a murder and random robberies could be connected I enjoyed learning about the Bayside Book Writers Each one of the members are so much than they seemed in the first book It was also good to see Olivia finally get some answers to he [...]

      WOW.WOWWOW The second book of this series surpassed all my expectations I admit that in the first book I was a bit put off by the coldness of Olivia Limoges, but as I read I began to understand why she was so private and guarded In A Deadly Cliche the Ice Queen thaws and as she begins to open up to her writing group friends When a hurricane hits Oyster Bay, Olivia is one of the first out and about doing what she can to help her town recover I ll try not to put in any spoilers, but just let me [...]

    20. Mandie Kok on said:

      This one was a little thin on murder mystery and heavier on developing Olivia s story The weather drama was entirely unnecessary and felt forced.Admittedly, I wasn t in the right frame of mind to fully enjoy this genre, but in the book, Olivia tries to distract herself by reading and faces the same dilemma, so my guilt was certainly lessened.Altogether of the same, if you ve read the first one in this series It s light, entertaining and I do want to know about Olivia and her friends.I will rea [...]

    21. Kaye on said:

      I loved this book, the combination of crime scenes with tableaus that illustrated a cliche , Olivia and Captain Haviland interacting with the other characters, a hurricane, the Bayside Writers Club, and an old personal mystery of Olivia s made for a fascinating read with twists and turns The I see Olivia and of course Captain Haviland, the I like them I m looking forward to the next book in the series.

    22. Marcia on said:

      For me, this second in the Books by the Bay series really delivered the goods because along with interesting resolution of the crime, I found out a about Olivia Limoges, the central character Haviland, Olivia s dog, continues to charm me He s not there to solve the crime, he s just there to be there when needed which is all anyone should ask of a cherished pet.

    23. Caroline on said:

      Excellent book Olivia is still evolving as a character and as a person and this book is very intense I m amazed that the writers I know are so imaginative This book is full of complex issues and is than just a fluff cozy it s a great read that I would recommend to everybody Great work, Ellery

    24. Linda on said:

      Second volume in this series author takes time to further develop the recurring characters and especially revealing about the main character s background and psyche Interesting the way the author also mingles in other books written by her characters and critiqued by group s Book Club Good read.
