I think the book The Weekend Was Murder was ok. It was a good book but good of been better. This book had a good story to it. Mary Elizabeth worked at Ridley Hotel, where a famous mystery writer and actors were coming to put on a murder mystery for people that liked to solve mysterys but they really discover body. The end of the book was great i wouldnt of changed it.
