About the book
Who would kill a man in cold blood during Ocean Crest, New Jersey’s most popular winter event? When Lucy learns the victim is Deacon Spooner, the reception hall owner who turned up his nose—and his price—at her wedding plans, she can’t help wondering who wouldn’t kill the pompous caterer . . .
Perhaps the culprit is the wedding cake baker whose career Deacon nearly destroyed? Or the angry bride whose reception he ruined? With her maid of honor, Katie, busily planning Lucy’s wedding without her, Lucy will have to get to the bottom of this cold-hearted business in time for Kebab Kitchen’s mouthwatering Christmas celebration—and before her hometown’s holiday spirit washes out to sea . . .
And I thought
Another good read in a fun series. I have read a couple of this series and enjoyed them.
The author develops all the characters so well that even though there are alot them it is easy to keep track of everyone.
The main character Lucy as most main characters can't keep from sleuthing. Lucy and her bestie Katie Watson who is referred to as Lucy's 'Watson' to her Sherlock is always up to helping Lucy investigate. Katie is good at finding ways and reasons to interview suspects and towns people.
Katie is married to Bill a detective that has very little luck keeping the girls out of trouble and minding their business instead of 'helping' with investigations.
Lucy is luckier in that her fiance is a little more agreeable to the sleuthing maybe because he is trying to get Lucy to the alter.
I did kind of figure out what was going on and why the victim met his maker but I didn't pick up on who did the deed.
The author gives the reader a few clues and Lucy and Katie stir the pot and find the suspects to check out.
I was intrigued with the cover and enjoyed how Gaddo the cat made it into the story.
The recipes at the end sound interesting and I am thinking of trying a couple!
If you enjoy a good cozy with fun and likeable characters you'll enjoy the escapdes of Lucy and Katie.
I received a complimentary copy.
