April Fool Dead: A Death on Demand Mystery. Someone is playing a rather nasty April Fool's prank on mystery bookstore owner Annie Darling. Frank’s smile froze, slipped away. He no longer felt the springlike warmth of the sun or heard the honk of northward-bound geese or noticed the swarm of no-see-ums swirling around him as he stared at the long gray envelope. He hadn’t received official letters of any kind since he’d retired as the island’s chief of police. He told all his friends when they met for coffee at Parotti’s that he didn’t miss the job.

Bantam Books by Carolyn G. Hart. Death on Demand Mysteries. Scandal in fair haven. Honeymoon with murder. A little class on murder. Alone, each item was insignificant. Some were easily found. A few were stolen from friends or acquaintances, but their value was so slight that the losses occasioned mild puzzlement and nothing more. A pair of doctor’s rubber gloves.

APRIL FOOL DEAD by Carolyn Hart has Annie and Max Darling working to discover who is out to sabotage Emma Clyde's book signing at Death on Demand.
Annie has peppered the island with fliers announcing the signing, but someone has copied her style and is pointing fingers at the secrets of local residents. As usual Max's mother has an agenda of her own that points to the fact that an island paradise is anything but.
An excellent addition to the Death on Demand series.

I liked the book but it was slow and I like a faster paced book. I haven't read this author in years now I remember why.

Of all Carolyn Hart's stories, this one was just "ok." Still enjoyed reading, but think she could have spent more time working on the story.

Annie Darling, owner of the mystery book store Death on Demand, is busily preparing for a book signing of local author Emma Clyde's latest bestseller "Whodunit?". Annie, who is always fond of sponsoring contests in her store, has come up with a special promotion for Emma's book signing. The special contest is a challenge to identify nine mysteries and their authors, based on clues given in an advertising flyer which Annie has distributed around the island. However, several days before the signing event, another set of mysterious flyers appear on Broward's Rock Island which appear as if Annie is accusing some of her neighbors or murder and other crimes as part of her contest. In order to clear the name of her store, Annie and her husband Max set out to find the real author of the fake contest flyers.

I felt that the first half of this book moved pretty slowly. I did enjoy Ms. Hart's wonderful descriptions of the South Carolina swamps and wildlife. The pace of the story picked up for the last one hundred pages or so, when two island residents are found brutally murdered. Together with her friend Henny, Annie and Max try to discover if the flyers are related to the murders, or if the flyers were just a smoke screen to divert attention from the real murderer.

All in all, this was an enjoyable read. The many subplots in the book are all neatly tied up in the end, and there are many clues to send the reader down the wrong path in figuring out whodunit.

In the 13th Death on Demand Mystery, Annie & Max once again find themselves in the midst of mystery and murder. Their first mystery to solve is who is trying to ruin a book signing by placing fake publicity flyers all over the island. These flyers bring to light some unsolved crimes, and Annie becomes intrigued enough to want to solve them. Before she can spend too much time on that, however, a teacher is found murdered with a pile of flyers next to her body. And when a student ends up dead, Annie and Max must rush to uncover the murderer before anyone else gets hurt.

This was my first Death on Demand mystery, and it will not be my last. I enjoyed each of the characters, and thought it was an interesting cozy. I agree with some of the other reviews in that I found that the first 100+ pages were a bit hard to follow. I did wonder, however, if it was because this was the first book I had read in the serious. Overall, I enjoyed the book, and found it to be a light, fun read.

The first book in the series is Death on Demand. Enjoy!
Annie Darling is sponsoring a book signing by Broward's Rock's most illustrious author, Emma Clyde, at her bookstore, Death on Demand. She creates brochures with clues to different mysteries to advertise the event and to entice readers to enter the contest to discover which books are referred to by the clues. Meanwhile someone else distributes bogus flyers which refer to unsolved mysteries which have occurred on the island in the past. Things become even more complicated when murders begin to occur. Annie and Max try to solve the murders and determine who has distributed the muckraking flyers. It is somewhat distracting as a reader to have 5 mysteries hanging in the air along with the murders. The solution at the end seems quite abrupt and incomplete as there is never a good explanation as to who distributed the flyers and why they were ever created in the first place. This is not typical of author Hart, which causes this book to be one of the lesser lights of the series.
