Getaway With Murder opens Diane Kelly's cozy Mountain Lodge mystery series. It stars the delightful Misty Murphy. Turning fifty, she ended her marriage (on very friendly terms) and purchased a run down mountain lodge high in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Can she possibly make a go of it? Feline Yeti keeps her company.

Misty is fortunate to enlist local handyman Rocky Crowder to handle the needed renovations and maintenance. He stays on site to do the work and romance is soon in the air. Across the street, Greasy Griddle proprietor Patty agrees to cater lodge breakfasts. Life seems perfect when the lodge is booked for its opening night and for a full week's yoga retreat. Even though yoga instructor Sasha Ducharme-Carlisle is demanding and difficult, all goes fairly smoothly until Sasha is murdered.

Of course, Misty is concerned about her lodge's reputation and is determined to solve the case quickly. We know she will too, but the enjoyment is in the journey with these engaging characters. I look forward to the next episode when Misty will host 'biker chicks'.
