Ve enjoyed the others in the series and I like the author s other series so I ll keep reading her books but this was not one of her best efforts I really enjoy the story and setting of this book in New Orleans I did find it a bit hard to keep up with all the names of the characters but overall it was a good mystery Killer on a Hot Tin Roof is the third in Washburn s Literary Tour Agency series Perhaps it help to Washburn s Literary Tour Agency series Perhaps it help to an English teacher to thoroughly enjoy these books but I don t think so Each book in the series has become enjoyable Every book in the series as interesting plot lines well developed characters and fun little known information about an author in this case Tennessee WilliamsDelilah Dickinson owner of the Literary Tour Agency takes a group of college English professors to New Orleans to attend the annual Tennessee Williams Literary Festival She looks forward to a peaceful trip because after all how much trouble can English teachers be uite a bit as it turns out especially when one of the professors brings along an elderly man Howard Burleson who claims to have been intimate with Williams and who claims to have actually written Cat on a Hot Tin Roof Needless to say "this causes all kinds of consternation among the professors When Burleson turns up dead Delilah knows she needs to " causes all kinds of consternation among the professors When Burleson turns up dead Delilah knows she needs to out who killed him before her business is ruined forever and before the wrong person is found guilty of the murderBe forewarned if ou read this on a Kindle one every couple of pages two words are written as one I m finding and that there are many editorialproofing errors in the Kindle editions of books You can usually tell exactly when the proofreader uite doing hisher jobThe other thing that bothered me wa when Washburn had an English professor make a statement using the the nominative case who and ending the phrase with a preposition rather than using the objective case whom It wouldn t be so bothersome perhaps if I weren t an English teacher retired or if another character outside the profession had used who No self respecting college English professor would use the wrong case Delilah Dickinson is a single woman who owns her own travel agency in Atlanta Georgia that specializes in tours focusing on popular Southern literary writers Her tours featuring attractions and events from Mark Twain s and Margaret Mitchell s classics have been spoiled by shocking occurrences of assassinations and chaos Delilah has become a novice investigator though she doesn t realize or acknowledge it and she has the aptitude for solving these crimes She does realize that too much infamy could destroy the small travel agency she runs with her familyDelilah contracts to lead a group of professors to New Orleans to attend the annual Tennessee Williams Literary Festival she thinks the tour will be relaxing reasoning that professors were unlikely to be too much trouble also her friend and possible love interest Dr Will Burke would come along But Delilah s soon realizes that the professors are not too easily handled They drink and get drunk they have affairs they guard family secrets that would ruin them if they were exposed and than a couple of them appear to hate each otherWhen a key figure turns up dead and Delilah is the one to have found the body she has to work diligently to prove her innocence to the police and to find the killer before she herself turns into his victimI won t give away the ending but I will say this was a fun read 4 Stars. Underway again and this time Tennessee Williams is the subject but murder will steal the spotlight. Tion throughout the book and had a humdinger of an ending I will give it that However this was a third book in a series which I did not realize when I picked it up to read I was still able to follow the plot of this book but there were times that I could tell the author was trying to build on some relationship or event from her Previous Two Books That Made Me Wonder What It Was two books that made me wonder what it was I missed There was a lot of reference to the other two books events too Like I said I was able to make it through this book just fine and the plot wasn t really affected but I could tell I may have gotten a better sense of the characters had I read the first two books at least that is how it seemed The characters were fun and easy to identify with in this book and funI did feel though like it took a long time to get to the peek of the plotline I understood why because The Bride Of Lammermoor you had to get some background and build suspense but I think whenou get to over half the book read and the murder still hasn t happened it makes the reader wonder about the book seeing this is the main reason ou may have picked up the book Then I felt a bit deceived by the book description When I read it it made me think this travel guide is an amateur sleuth which she kind of was but she didn t really do a lot of investigating on her own like I picture an amateur sleuth to do She basically just listened to what the detectives asked her and made her own decisions and seemed to just trip onto a possible solution I think if I had read the other two books I may have felt differently about the book as a whole Delilah Dickinson owns a travel agency in Atlanta Her agency specializes in literary tours Killer On a Hot Tin Roof begins at the airport in Atlanta The professors signed up to go on the tour are tending to act unruly students than adults The tour is headed for New Orleans and for the annual Tennessee Williams Literary Festival Delilah is glad to have Dr Will Burke along as a member the group Will is a professor and Delilah s current romantic interestDelilah breathes a sign of relief when she finally gets the group to New Orleans and settled into the St Emilon Hotel located in the French uarter However for Delilah the trouble was just beginning Dr Michael Frasier one of the professors has brought Howard Burleson as his guest Burleson is an elderly man who shocks everyone when he announced that he and Tennessee Williams were lovers burleson also claims that he actually lovers Burleson also claims that he actually Cat on a Hot Tin Roof not Tennessee WilliamsEach member of the tour group has his or her opinion as to whether Burleson is telling the truth Frasier is upset that Burleson has let the cat out of the bag regarding his past but when Burleson is found murdered things get even complicated Frasier accuses Dr Tamara Paige of murder and the police buy into Frasier s theoryThe entire literary tour consisted of interesting characters each with their own uniue story When Delilah finally gets her fill of lust greed murder and emotional turmoil the highlights of the literary tour she makes up her mind to find the murderer and get the remainder of the group back to AtlantaLivia J Washburn has written a mystery full of humor and some interesting bits about New Orleans and Tennessee Williams I loved the details about New Orleans and the hotel and the plot line about who really wrote Cat on a Hot Tin Roof was very interesting but I knew the killer from the beginning and there was a small spoiler TSTL moment Outhern sleuth Delilah Dickinson In 'Killer on a Hot Tin Roof' Delilah's literary mystery tour is.
