Mystery lover Dr. Megan Clark talks her historian sidekick Dr. Ryan Stevens into joining her mystery reading group, Murder by the Yard, even though his favorite reading choices are Westerns. The members of the group are experts with very definite opinions, and when one particularly disagreeable member is murdered after a meeting, Megan and Ryan (under duress) undertake to find the killer. When an earlier murder in Amarillo appears to be linked, and strange things happen to other members, Megan and Ryan must race to keep the killer from striking again. Well-plotted and humorous with a developing romance between odd couple Megan and Ryan.
