Murder in Real Time by Julie Anne Lindsey – Review

My Thoughts

I was equal parts excited to read Murder in Real Time and sad that this was the last Patience Price mystery. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time on Pony Island. The characters and setting truly make this series wonderful. I absolutely love the way Julie is able to balance mystery, humor, and romance in her books, and this series is no exception.

The mystery was intense and kept me reading. There were so many times I laughed out …
