Die Buying

Title: Die Buying

Author: Laura DiSilverio aka Ella Barrick

Publisher: Berkley Prime Crime Mystery

Series: Mall Cop Mystery, Bk 1

ISBN: 9780425242735

Pages: 276

Obtained: Personal copy (purchased at Borders closing sale)


I read and enjoyed Quickstep to Murder by Ella Barrick, but I didn't realize that was the same author as Laura DiSilverio until after I bought this.  I put off reading this for quite some time, in part because I owned it so it immediately fell in the "No Rush" category.  In part I didn't like Kevin James's Paul Blart: Mall Cop movie and that popped in my head whenever I picked this up.  But I got this idea for a regular giveaway featuring a cozy I already own and need to read, and this was right there in front of me.

I'm glad I finally picked it up because I really enjoyed it.  I liked EJ and her background.  I found some of her interactions amusing and others as frustrating as she did. Plus, I enjoyed the mystery itself.  I had a bit of a break from cozies, but now I remember why I like them so much.  I look forward to reading the second book, All Sales Fatal, which I've requested my library purchase.


  1. Like in Borders is closed kind of sale?

    Once again, love the book's cover. I wanted a segway, but this would be me:

    1. Yeah, when they closed. It's been awhile.

      I'd LOVE to have a Segway. And I think I'd manage not to fall/crash...mostly.


Please feel free to comment. I love to hear from you!
