A Deadly Éclair
Do not read this book on an empty stomach. Perhaps it pairs well with a fine wine.
Aliens, Ghosts, Glonkirks, and Jewelers all play a role in this delicious cozy mystery.
My vocabulary also got a workout, which I enjoy. Reading a good cozy should expand your world and this does that very well.
Weddings should be a joyous time, with family and business associates all coming together to celebrate. We all know what happens when extended family gets together- secrets slip and tempers flare. But murder? Thankfully that is not a regular result.
Unfortunately this time there is murder and the victim seemed to be the most likable person anyone knew. Was the method of murder leaving a message?
Mimi is constantly in motion, a very hands on manager involved in all decisions. Even when she takes time to enjoy a local music festival, and perhaps the company of a handsome man, or when she visits a local art gallery, she manages to put herself in danger. At least by midway she seems more aware of the danger she attracts.
I enjoyed the investigative aspects of the book and figuring out who killed the victim took a long time.
