You won't want to put this book down. From the very beginning I was hooked on the story. It has everything I crave in a mystery, a small town, a strong leading character, an intense plot and a touch of romance.
Mona Murphy returns home after the death of her grandfather. Feeling lost and a bit confused, Mona encounters Preston, an insurance salesman. Mona learns that she is the beneficiary of a life insurance policy and Preston is there to investigate her grandfather's death.
Returning back to Copper Springs has been difficult and soon Mona doesn't know who to trust. Caught in a whirlwind of events, Mona is forced to see things the way they truly are.
Miss Mae is a new to me author, but her books are decadent. Reading a book by Miss Mae is like riding a roller coaster, as you read, the story picks up speed, just when you think you have the plot figured out, it's time for the downhill impact, your mind is racing as you realize you are wrong!
I am a true fan of her writing, it is clear and concise, her characters are very believable and so easy to relate to. If you are not a fan of her books, you are missing out on some epic stories.
I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for my fair and honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

What a fun and mysterious read Said the Spider to the Fly was. This was such a compelling read because I honestly did not know who the killer could be. At one point, I found myself suspecting everyone. Early on, two possibilities were presented of whom it could be but then a twist was thrown in and I was back to square one. I love it when that happens. This book opened with an action scene and it maintained a fast pace throughout the book. And just a hint, when you think you figured it out, you really didn't. I was literally gasping at the dramatic ending. Fabulous!
One thing I found intriguing was the growing romance between Mona and Preston. The attraction was always there yet it seemed a romance was just out of reach. Miss Mae sure knows how to write a romance that the reader can really get into. The added boyfriend from the past made this a sensational read. I just wanted him to go away but he always came back. And then the special abilities that Mona possessed really set this book on fire. I found myself drawn to what she was capable of. The secondary characters were quirky in their own ways and each gained something by Jerome's death, which left me wondering just who could it be? The addition of Keith's character was a brilliant move as he brought a feeling of unconditional love to the story.
I enjoy reading books by Miss Mae and it seems as though each new book I read gets a little bit stronger than the one before. She is certainly an author that I have on my "automatic read" list. If you are looking for a good clean romance/mystery then you honestly need to read Said the Spider to the Fly. It will keep you on the edge of your set and get the wheels turning in your head as to what direction the book will go in. Brilliantly written Miss Mae, my congratulations to you on another well written mystery.
