However, Bea does not get along pretty well with her new neighbors, and when the local judge has had it enough of their unending fights, he sentences them to a weekly book club, in order for them to learn to get along and also to save his wife’s library from losing their funding.
The first book in League of Literary Ladies series is a brilliant read featuring an extensive cast with conflicting interests. First, there is, Bea the main character or what one would call- a New Yorker; she is working hard to get things running in her newly established business. Then there is Kate the owner of a local vineyard, and she really dislikes all the trucks coming and leaving Bea’s Bed and Breakfast, claiming that they make noise in front of her house. Additionally, she believes that the B&B is large and unsightly and she would really love to see it being demolished, and the land used for her vineyard instead.
We are also introduced to Chandra, some sort of a New Age woman, always chanting, burning incense, and playing music that no one else loves. Bea hates Chandra because; Chandra’s cat keeps on peeing on her flowers.
The trio are joined by another member, Luella Zak who does not want to be a part of the BookClub. The BookClub first item is to pick a book and read, and the choice of books they can pick is limited since the library has only five copies of books they all like. Bea is unshakable of not wanting to read a thriller book, and so the group settles on the Murder at the Orient Express, by Agatha Christie.
The ladies are also quick to leave the library, and they all end up in the new Chinese Restaurant where they find the owner murdered. With the snow storm worsening, the four ladies end up in Bea’s B&B where they join forces to investigate and find out the killer using Agatha’s novel as a guide on how to go about it.
