    not worth your time

    This is not a good cozy mystery. The author claims to be a national bestselling author that is writing under another name...which is a good thing. I wouldn't place my real name on this book either. The writing is choppy and the dialogue is amateurish at best. I was ready to like this book, the back cover made it sound like a good, fast read. Well, it was half right. If you want a good series to start on, try Maggie Sefton. Her Knit One, Kill Two shows how a first mystery should be written.

    Great crafty mystery

    Jennifer Shane has recently opened a card-making business, Custom Card Creations. Her big sister has a scrapbooking business down the street and their brother is the town sheriff. Neither of them thought her store was a good decision. But, she did it any way. Jennifer overhears a murder on the phone. Her brother says there isn¿t much he can do with the sketchy information she has. In the meantime, Jennifer lands her first custom order. She is thrilled as there hasn¿t been much traffic in her store. Jennifer receives a threatening note. Her sister and brother worry she¿s in danger. So she invites her eccentric aunt Lillian to help her in the store. Jennifer begins teaching Lillian about card-making. Lillian takes to it right away. It turns out the victim was to be the maid of honor in the wedding Jennifer is designing invitations for. Jennifer ends up trying to figure out who the murdered is. She finds herself with more threats. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Jennifer and Lillian are a great team. I can¿t wait to read about more of their escapades. The detail in the books about card making is great too. Such a fun read. I highly recommend this book.

    wonderful police procedural-amateur sleuth investigative tale

    In the resort town of Rebel Forge, Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Jennifer Shane opens up Custom Card Creations after failing to persuade her older sister Sara Lynn to expand her shop Forever Memories. While waiting for her first customer, she receives a strange phone call asking for Annie followed by a scream of terror and silence. When her brother Sheriff Bradford arrives to make peace between his sisters, Jennifer tells him about the strange phone call. Not long afterward she gets another call, but silence greets her on the other end. When she goes home, another odd call occurs. The next day she receives an envelop with only her first name written on the outside with no postage or other marks inside is a letter in which someone tells her to forget what she heard or she will be next. She shows the note to Bradford who leaves her to investigate the death of a young woman. Trying to start a business, Jennifer has inadvertently been yanked into a homicide all because of a wrong number. --- INVITATION TO MURDER is a wonderful police procedural-amateur sleuth investigative tale. The story line combines family rivalry and nurturing inside an intriguing who-done-it as an innocent Jennifer is unwillingly yanked into the middle of a homicide investigation. The three siblings make the mystery work as they seem like real siblings loving and arguing with one another even as Bradford works the case while Jennifer tries to keep out but fate pushes her back into the center. This is a bright cozy that fans will welcome. --- Harriet Klausner
