Overview

Blush: This is a suggestive romance (love scenes are not graphic)

First in Events Unlimited series.

When Annike McKinley returns to her Aunt Gerda's home for Thanksgiving she finds the body of Clifford Brody, C.P.A., bleeding all over her aunt's tax receipts. While Sheriff Owen Sarkisian and the crime team track mud through the house, the Service Club of Upper River Gulch Environs (the SCOURGEs) sticks Annike with organizing the town's Thanksgiving weekend activities, which gives her the opportunity to investigate the murder on her own to clear the chief suspect-her beloved aunt. She's soon up to her neck in pancake breakfasts, pie-eating contests, community dinners-and a raffle prize that threatens to take over her life.

After ordering Annike to stop interfering, Sarkisian is forced to beg the aid of her accounting skills to help unravel the case. She keeps a tight rein on her growing enjoyment of his company, though, for as the widow of a former sheriff of the county she is determined not to get romantically involved with another law officer. Then one of the suspects is found dead, stripped to his boxers and socks in a vat of apricot brandy. Before the murderer is captured, both Annike and Sarkisian narrowly avoid adding to the body count

The worst murder mystery I have read by far. The firts four chapters I made it through anyway. The author is repeatedly over-discriptive of coffee pots and rugs but not the characters who seem to care about everything other than the murder that occurred in their own house and neighborhood. If it was meant to be comical as well as thrilling it failed on both accounts.

This is an excellent light mystery book. It's long (over a 1000 pages), full of complex characters and lots of description. If you've ever had a relative rope you into something, this book definitely shows a worst case scenario that will make you laugh. In short, it's a really lovely book and one that has caused me to want to read the other books in the same series. I truly enjoyed it (and it was a free nook book for a few days - thanks Barne's and Noble!)!

What a great whodunit. I thought the characters were engaging, the plot suspenseful with humor thrown it. I loved all the small time situations that crept up. Would definitely read the next one in the series.

This is an ok mystery - the characters were interesting, although the plot dragged a little. But in no way was this a romance - a friendship maybe, but that's absolutely it, no romance even hinted at.

This is an enjoyable story with likeable characters and plenty of humor. The pace seemed a little forced; an awful lot happens in a short period of time, which doesn't leave much of time for character development. But the narrator's voice remains consistent and it's fun to follow her part in the adventure.

This was a pretty good book. Funny and well thought out. It reminded me a little bit of Janet Evanovich's characters and plots, which I really like. I hope to read more by this author.

The writing style reminded me of Janet Evanovich with the "old lady humor". Its cute once or twice but a whole book (or a series) of it gets boring quick. I had to force myself to finish this book.
