To Kill a Mocking Girl by Harper Kincaid
To Kill a Mocking Girl Series: Bookbinding Mystery #1
Genres: Cozy Mystery

Bookbinder Quinn finds herself in trouble when her ex's fiance turns up dead and if she's not careful, her days might be numbered.

Quinn Victoria Caine is back in her quirky town of Vienna, Virginia, starting her new life as a bookbinder in her family-owned, charm-for-days bookshop, Prose & Scones. With her trusty German Shephard RBG-'Ruff Barker' Ginsburg by her side, what can go wrong? Okay, sure, bumping into her ex, Scott, or her former high school nemesis, Tricia, is a drag. It certainly doesn't help they have acquired the new hobby of shoving their recent engagement in her face every chance they get. But that doesn't mean Quinn wanted to find Tricia dead in the road. So why does half the town think she may have done it?

Quinn is determined to find Tricia's killer, even if it means partnering with her cousin-turned-nun, Sister Daria, and Detective Aiden Harrington, her older brother's too-movie-star-handsome-for-his-own good, best friend. They believe she's innocent, but of course that doesn't influence the police, who peg her as their prime suspect. Or, at least until she's poisoned.

But there is no way Quinn is going to stop now. Vienna is her town and-for better or worse-Tricia was one of their own. Someone may have killed the mocking girl, but no one's going to stop the notorious QVC.

This is my first book by Harper Kincaid and I must say I enjoyed it so much. It is the fist book in the Bookbinding Mystery series and is set in Virginia. I’m not sure I have ever read a heroine with the job of bookbinder but I loved it!

Quinn Caine along with her dog RBG, cousin Sister Daria, and others live int he small town of Vienna. Quinn’s ex just got engaged to her frenemy from high school, Tricia. Tricia loves to flash that ring in Quinn’s face and honestly a nicer person couldn’t have ended up dead. I’m just saying, girl sort of deserved it.

Of course, that means Quin is accused and she has to clear her name. With a little help from family and friends she sets out to prove the new cop in town wrong and that she is innocent. I couldn’t put this down! I just fell in love with Quinn and the other characters. As we got closer to finding out who the real murderer was I found myself biting my nails to see if I and figured it correctly or not.
