Kindle Edition, 253 pages
All Ellison Russell wanted was an update on her stock portfolio. Instead, she found her broker dead. With an unexpected out-of-town guest at her house, Ellison is too busy for a murder investigation. Only this time, Detective Anarchy Jones wants her help, and she can’t deny the handsome detective. Can Mr. Coffee supply her with enough caffeine to keep her brain sharp and everyone else happy? Juggling bodies (one, two, three, four), two-faced friends, her social calendar, and a cat (yes, a cat) is taxing but Mother might be the biggest challenge of all. With a killer drawing closer, can Ellison put together the pieces or will she be the one getting stabbed in the back?

Review: BACK STABBERS by Julie Mulhern
(COUNTRY CLUB MURDERS #8)
When I first started reading this series a while back, I expected I would be disinterested with a class structure beyond my means and past my imagination. So wrong! (I'm so glad!) I love the series. Ellison is a precious personality; although born into wealth and married into wealth and raised by a very “upper-class disdainful” mother, she is very much an “at-home,” loving, compassionate and generous individual, an artist, and a devoted mother and dog lover.
In fact, Ellison strongly reminds me of Lois Winston's crafting sleuth Anastasia Pollack. Both are women with (or previously with) some wealth, who could be snooty and inclusive. But both are generous, kind-hearted souls, and make their series all the more appealing because of their natures.
Also, both can't seem to stop stumbling over corpses (usually NOT the “natural death” moments), and so just have to investigate for themselves—sometimes or else!
This time Ellison unfortunately stumbles on her dead broker. That was more than she needed to see and that death only uncovers an iceberg of intrigue and danger.
