Everything was golden, until the killing began…

The good news was that Carrie’s father had gotten rich. The bad news was that her stepmom was coming to visit.

Carrie, a stress-reduction therapist who dates a cop, mothers two teenagers, and solves murders on the side, thought she could handle Eve for a weekend. But that was before the glamour queen dragged Carrie into a wild-goose chase that led to a dead man in Manhattan.

Now Eve is in jail, Carrie’s long-lost stepbrother–so long-lost Carrie didn’t know she had one–is back, and people are dropping like flies. No wonder Carrie’s biorhythms are starting to flutter. For Carrie, unraveling the mystery that Eve thrust into her life is a matter of self-preservation. Because a killer has a shortlist of victims–and Carrie’s name is right near the top….

Review –
I  choose this book because the author was new to me and the storyline fit into
the line of books I like such as, cozy mysteries,humorous crime fiction and fast
The storyline held my interest and was hard to put down.
The book was full of humor but not overdone and Carrie is kind of like the  Lucille Ball character in I Love Lucy, always sticking her nose in places it doesn’t belong and then getting in dangerous trouble.
A very pleasant read and I love the cover.
I’m looking
forward to reading more of this series.
