Anything For A Story
by Cynthia Hickey

I enjoyed this book, it was a fun read!
~Storeybook Reviews
ANYTHING FOR A STORY is a riot (and I’m not talking about all the noise Stormi and her family makes).
~Author – Traci Andrighetti
Light mystery, light romance, and light-hearted characters made this story (the first in a new series) a perfect summer afternoon read.

    Stormi Nelson, best-selling romance author, moved into her huge Victorian house in the private community of Oak Meadows Estates. When her agent tells her that her characters are becoming too cardboard and that she needs to get out and mingle with people, she comes up with the idea of a Neighborhood Watch Program. The only problem is … she’s the only member. On her first night of patrol, she stumbles over a dead body, meets a hunky detective, who happens to be her neighbor and clearly frustrated with her, and her mother, sister, niece and nephew arrive to shake up Stormi’s peaceful life. As she is immersed ever deeper into the mystery surrounding a neighbor’s murder, she decides to change writing tactics and write a romantic mystery based on her experiences. What follows is a frolicking good time as Stormi finds herself the nosiest neighbor of them all. Can she find the killer before she becomes the next victim?

My Review:
I loved reading this book! Stormi Nelson is a fantastic character who really keeps you reading past your bedtime. Stormi finds the perfect house that she thinks will be a great place for her to write her story. Then her family moves in and everything changes. When a murder takes place it sends the family and the town in an uproar and the neighbors are turning against her. Stormi has to do something to calm the neighbors down and find the killer before her and her family become the next victims. You will start this book and not want to put it down!
