9780061999406: Die for Love: A Jacqueline Kirby Novel of Suspense (Jacqueline Kirby Series)

The annual Historical Romance Writers of the World convention in New York City is calling to Jacqueline Kirby, a Nebraska librarian who desperately desires some excitement. But all is not love and kisses at this august gathering of starry-eyed eccentrics and sentimental scribes. As far as Jacqueline is concerned, the sudden “natural” death of a gossip columnist seems anything but. And when she’s approached by a popular genre star who fears for her own life, the resourceful Ms. Kirby quickly goes back to work . . . as a sleuth. Because there’s a sinister scenario being penned at this purple prose congregation. And when jealousy and passion are given free rein beyond the boundaries of the printed page, the result can be murder.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Peters earned her Ph.D. in Egyptology from the University of Chicago's famed Oriental Institute. She was named Grand Master at the inaugural Anthony Awards in 1986 and Grand Master by the Mystery Writers of America in 1998. In 2003, she received the Lifetime Achievement Award at the Malice Domestic Convention. She lives in a historic farmhouse in western Maryland.

From AudioFile:

Creating the character of Hattie, irascible doyenne of the Romance writing world of the 1970s, Liza Ross uses a memorable Southern accent and realistic voice. Ross precisely enunciates every word but still doesn't achieve good character differentiation. The protagonist, librarian Jacqueline Kirby, never acquires a unique voice. Perhaps it's the perfect pronunciation, so rare in real life, that keeps some of the characters from achieving lives of their own in this competent production.
