Amateur sleuth Charley Carpenter discovers a coded journal that could crack her small town’s most infamous cold case wide open in this charming cozy mystery from the USA Today bestselling author of The Book Club Murders.
As the owner of Old Hat Vintage Fashions, Charley Carpenter supplies retro apparel to the residents of Oakwood, Ohio, but she’s been known to set business aside to play detective when a mystery rears its head. And there’s no bigger mystery in Oakwood than the murder of Regan Fletcher—a case that’s haunted the town for decades.
Regan’s boyfriend, Carter, did time for the crime—until another man’s confession freed him. But did the “real killer” really do it? Or did Carter walk away with blood on his hands? When Charley stumbles on an old journal written in code, it only complicates the case by revealing a blackmail scheme that targeted dozens of Oakwood’s citizens, giving them all a motive for murder.
Now, with a spate of new suspects to pursue, plus a fresh murder and the abduction of her sleuthing partner, Charley must dig deeper still into the past—even as she risks being buried by her shadowy prey. Joining forces with Detective Marcus Trenault and the newly formed Oakwood Mystery Book Club, Charley turns to a classic whodunit for clues on catching a killer—before more lives are lost, and the truth dies with them.
Leslie Nagel’s delightful Oakwood Mystery novels can be enjoyed together or separately:

My Review: 5 Stars:

THE OAKWOOD BOOK CLUB MYSTERIES is one of my absolutely favourite cozy mystery series. I can't help but love characters who adore books, and this series features several strong-in-integrity female characters, along with several male series characters who are respectful, supportive, and loving (even protective). The books are well-written and compelling, examining the characters in great depth, and providing puzzling mysteries to be solved.

In THE CODEBOOK MURDERS protagonist Charley Carpenter and her Oakwood Book Club (which reads and discusses only mysteries by female authors) stumble upon a 40-year-old local mystery, and how it resonates with their current book club selection, Agatha Christie's DEATH ON THE NILE (which made me want to reread it!). The case is so cold, but a killer still lurks,  active and determined to keep the original murder forever unsolved, no matter who has to die or be ruined.
