When she agreed, she did not realize that Murphy's Law anything that I just received my second overdue notice from my library telling me to return Foul play on Words.
When she agreed, she did not realize that Murphy's Law anything that can go wrong, will go wrong is taking effect. She is met by the conference organizer, her friend Viv, who blurts "Charlee, my daughter's been kidnapped. The author clearly has done her research into the setting.

Foul Play on Words
One might long to visit, or return to Oregon after reading this. Foul Play on Words has elements of a farce. The situations while plausible --double booking a writer's conference with an Agility Dog Training Competition -- sets the stage for visible comedy. The characters might at first appear to be stereotypes. It is Clark's skill, that turns tropes into believable people.

The main fight scene, while violent also contains slices of slap-stick humor. This book would make a great movie. This charming novel can be read as a stand alone. I however hope it is the forerunner of great things to come. Highly recommended. Mar 23, Aymee rated it really liked it Shelves: contemporary , cozy-mystery. Charlee Russo, a mystery writer accused of murder herself not too long ago, is excited to join her long-time friend, Viv, at a writer's convention in Portland. Minutes after landing, all her plans are trashed when Viv blurts out that her daughter, Hanna, is missing.
While Charlee agrees to take over the prep for the conference, she also decides to do a little investigating of her own. Although a bit snappish and irritated at times, Charlee is a likeable character. Her investigative skills ar Charlee Russo, a mystery writer accused of murder herself not too long ago, is excited to join her long-time friend, Viv, at a writer's convention in Portland.
Her investigative skills aren't always the best, but she's a writer, not a detective, so I can let that slide. She does have quite the imagination and her sense of humor often saves her from screaming. The addition of the double booking with a dog show added a lot of fun and colorful moments to the story.
It was a great way to break up Charlee's worrying - about both the conference and the kidnapping - as well as lightening the mood with some humor. My one complaint is that the supporting characters weren't fully fleshed out so you're not sure of their true motives or possible involvement. Charlee, however, is well rounded and interesting and I'd happily read more in this series.
It makes for a quick read that left me smiling. There is one character, however, that I'm wondering about.

In Becky Clark's Foul Play on Words, the second installment in the Mystery Writer's Mystery cozy series, this mystery will strike a chord to all writers who want to get published.
It would resonate with each and every one of us. It all started when Charlemagne "Charlee" Russo is asked to speak at a local writer's conference in Portland for her friend Viv and to help her out. Besides that, she requests Charlee's assistance in locating her daughter Hanna who went missing and agreed to look for her In Becky Clark's Foul Play on Words, the second installment in the Mystery Writer's Mystery cozy series, this mystery will strike a chord to all writers who want to get published. Besides that, she requests Charlee's assistance in locating her daughter Hanna who went missing and agreed to look for her.
AS a mystery writer herself, Charlee notices a lot of strange happenings at this writers conference while she went to look for help for Hanna: a sick food staff, computerization registration issues, a double booking with a dog agility show, and a whole lot more. Things couldn't go from bad to worse when agents and editors were stuck by the storm as Charlee had to do double duty to give feedback to first pages and sound advice to all types of writers. She also met some nefarious people at the conference that she became puzzled with including Viv's ex-husband Garth and Hanna's friends.
Was she really missing or left on her accord? Charlee didn't get any resounding answers from Viv on her financial issues either. Before this conference can fall apart, it would be up to her to find Hanna and get down to the bottom of it before its too late for everyone conference attendee there to solve the puzzle.

All opinions are my own. I love the main character, Charlee, in this series. She's got a great voice and gumption as she takes on the challenges in this book. But I'm not sure I believed that her "friend" would bail on her own conference when she knew that she had no reliable, experienced volunteers to help. Show up, but be distracted, yes.

Dump stuff on Charlee and disappear? I don't kn [I received an electronic review copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I don't know. While the circumstances were supposed to be stressful, I didn't get a good sense of these two characters as "friends" either. The number of fiascoes with this conference was almost unbelievable as well.
The mystery in this is unusual, too, as Charlee wonders for a good portion of the story if a crime has even occurred. All of these factors made it difficult for me to just enjoy the story and get lost in it. It took some effort to push through. If you are a fan of the series already, check this one out and see what you think. I loved the parts where Charlee gets to be a writer and mentor at the conference.
I wished there were more of those sorts of scenes in the book. The dog agility pieces in the story were also enjoyable. Mar 27, Karen Hollins-Stallman added it.
