I HEARD A FLY BUZZ WHEN I DIED, by Amanda Flower
Willa does not know if Luther truly cares for one of the Dickinson girls or if he just sees marrying one of them as a way to raise himself up in society. After a few days in his company, Willa starts to believe it’s the latter. Miss Lavinia, Emily’s sister, appears to be enchanted by Luther; a fact that bothers Emily greatly. However, Emily’s fears are squashed when Luther turns up dead in the Dickinson’s garden. It seems that he was poisoned. Emerson, aghast at the death of his secretary, demands answers. Emily and Willa set out to find them in order to save the Dickinson family reputation and stop a cold-blooded fiend from killing again.

MY THOUGHTS -
I was so excited about reading this book because it was a historical mystery using Emily Dickinson and family as characters! I did not realize it was the second book in a series. But, no worries - I used one of my Audible credits and listened to the audio of the first one - Because I Could Not Stop For Death.
