Book Tour - Review and Giveaway: A Tale of Two Biddies by Kylie Logan


A Tale of Two Biddies by Kylie Logan
Cozy Mystery
2nd in League of Literary Ladies series

When I had a chance to review this Book, I knew I would love it! This title really grabbed my attention.  I really enjoy cozies that have funny "older" ladies in the story, and I was not disappointed!
  I really enjoyed this story of 4 neighbors who are in a book club together.  They are currently reading "A Tale of Two Cities" during the Bastille Day celebration when they become involved in a murder mystery.  The murder victim is the town's handyman and the ladies hurry to find the killer before someone else is a victim!

In this story, there are so many possible suspects, it will have you guessing throughout the book who the murderer is.
With wonderful characters, and a quickly moving story line, this book had me up reading late at night!

This is such a fun cozy! I havent read the first book in this series, but I'm putting it on my "to be read" list right away!  I cant wait to read more in this series!

About the Author:


Kylie Logan has loved mysteries since she was a kid. Her dad was a Cleveland Police detective and he introduced her to Sherlock Holmes stories and gave her investigating experience when on his days off, they’d pile into the car and hit the streets to look for stolen cars.  When he retired from the force, Dad became head of security for the Cleveland Public Library.
Kylie began her career writing historical romance and her book, “Devil’s Diamond,” was nominated for a RITA award as historical romance of the year by Romance Writers of America.  She’s also written contemporary romance (as Connie Lane), young adult horror (as Zoe Daniels and Connie Laux) and she writes the popular Pepper Martin mysteries as Casey Daniels.
Kylie is currently writing three different mystery series: the Button Box mysteries (newest book is “Panic Button”), the League of Literary Ladies mysteries (“Mayhem at the Orient Express”) and now, the Chili Cook-Off mysteries.  She can’t pass up an antique shop…there might be buttons in there!  She can’t put down a classic book . . . even if she already knows the story.  And she can’t say no to a good bowl of chili.  Luckily, her husband is the world’s greatest chili maker.
When she’s not writing, she’s usually with her family and their two dogs, Ernie, an adorable Airedale, and Oscar, a rescued Jack Russell who came for a short-term stay and ten years later, is still around. Kylie says that those of you who have ever met/lived with/had dealings with a Russell will certainly understand how knowing him has increased her propensity for murder.

About this book:
When it comes to solving mysteries, these ladies are in a league of their own…
Summer can be the best of times or the worst of times for the resort town of Put-in-Bay on Lake Erie. For Bea Cartwright, business is booming as guests storm her B and B for the Bastille Day celebration. In honor of the holiday, the League of Literary Ladies is reading the Charles Dickens’ classic, A Tale of Two Cities. It would be hard to make a more apropos selection—especially when they have their very own Defarge sisters, elderly twins Margaret and Alice, who run the local knitting shop.
On Bastille Day, the head-banging rock band Guillotine shows their chops for the tourists—but the celebration is soon cut short. With something needling the Defarge dowagers and secrets that lead to murder, solving this mystery will be a far, far better thing than the Literary Ladies have done before. They’ll just have to make sure to keep their heads while they try to stop a killer’s reign of terror…
