Ellery Adams Books Overview

Carbs & Cadavers

James ‘Professor Puff’ Henry may as well have ‘loser’ stamped on his forehead. Divorced, overweight, shy, and living at home, he relies on books and his favorite snack cheese puffs for sweet relief from his problems. A former English lit professor at William and Mary, he moves back to Quincy’s Gap, a small Virginia town in the Shenandoah Valley, to take care of his recently widowed father. To improve his social life and waistline, he joins a supper club for dieters who lovingly call themselves the ‘Flab Five.’ Avoiding carbs is nearly impossible in this deep fried potato loving land, so a mysterious death in their small burg provides an effective, if disturbing, distraction. While dodging delectable temptations, Professor Henry and his fellow dieters work together to shed pounds and find the killer who has struck fear in this tight knit community. Stanley!

Fit to Die

Welcome back to Quincy’s Gap, Virginia, where James Henry and his dieting group contend with dangerous secrets, dark intrigue, and delicious praline sundaes. Six months after starting their low carb diet, the Flab Five are feeling motivationally challenged. A new ice cream shop has come to town, but so has the Witness to Fitness weight loss center, run by the fanatical Veronica Levitt. Maybe Veronica’s ‘take no prisoners’ approach is just what the group needs.

Between dieting, caring for his cranky father, and struggling with his growing affection for Lucy, James has his plate full. But when he and his fellow dieters poke around in an arson case that turns into a murder investigation, the Flab Five discover that they may have bitten off more than they can chew.

Chili Con Corpses

Things are chugging merrily along for librarian James Henry. He has a closet filled with new clothes, a trimmer waistline, and a closer bond with his father. His only real problem is that his girlfriend Lucy’s interest in him seems to have inexplicably cooled. When schoolteacher Lindy suggests the club members join a Mexican cooking class, James jumps at the idea. Over cervezas and black bean dip, the supper club members warm to their new adventure. The class heats up even more when a reporter and her friends, twin sisters with supermodel physiques, enroll. But when people start turning up dead, and the evidence points toward Lindy, things become hotter than a jalape o. James, who was looking to add a little more spice to his life, gets much more than he bargained for.

Stiffs and Swine

When the supper club members are invited to be guest judges at a regional barbecue contest, they accept the invitation faster than you can say ‘hog heaven.’ But the barbecue festival’s family oriented, finger licking fun turns sour when a contestant is found dead. Things go from bad to worse when one of the five friends is accused of the murder and lands in jail. The strained relationship between James and Lucy is still no picnic, but the supper club members must stick together to find the real killer. Includes authentic barbecue friendly recipes!

The Battered Body

There’s trouble on the rise when the ‘Diva of Dough’ arrives in Quincy’s Gap to make the wedding cake for Milla and Jackson’s Christmas Eve nuptials. The famous chef and television personality is Milla’s sister, but while her confections are sweet and beautiful, the Diva herself makes enemies faster than you can say ‘praline pecan bundt cake.’ When the Diva is done in, her body found covered in cake batter, James and the other supper club members find themselves up to their elbows in suspects.

A Killer Plot

In the small coastal town of Oyster Bay, North Carolina, you’ll find plenty of characters, ne’er do wells, and even a few celebs trying to duck the paparazzi. But when murder joins this curious community, the Bayside Book Writers are there to get the story…
Olivia Limoges is the subject of constant gossip. Ever since she came back to town a return as mysterious as her departure Olivia has kept to herself, her dog, and her unfinished novel.

A Deadly Cliché

While walking her poodle, Olivia Limoges discovers a dead body buried in the sand. Could it be connected to the bizarre burglaries plaguing Oyster Bay, North Carolina? At every crime scene, the thieves set up odd tableaus: a stick of butter with a knife through it, dolls with silver spoons in their mouths, a deck of cards with a missing queen. Olivia realizes each setup represents a cliche. And who better to decode the cliche clues than her Bayside Book Writers group?

The Last Word

Olivia Limoges and the Bayside Book Writers are excited about Oyster Bay’s newest resident: bestselling novelist Nick Plumley, who’s come to work on his next book. But when Olivia stops by Plumley’s rental she finds that he’s been strangled to death. Her instincts tell her that something from the past came back to haunt him, but she never expects that the investigation could spell doom for one of her dearest friends…

So when her sister, Ashley, is implicated in a gruesome murder, Cooper snaps into action. Along with Nathan and her friends from Hope Street, Cooper vows to solve this unholy mess with a wing, a prayer, and a small dose of snooping
