So say readers of the debut mystery in the Ms America series, MS AMERICA AND THE OFFING ON OAHU. Now beauty queen and budding sleuth Happy Pennington returns, this time to gaudy, garish Las Vegas ...

When Happy pulls bridesmaid duty for pageant-wear purveyor Sally Anne Gibbons, the last thing she expects at the altar is a corpse. But at these over-the-top nuptials that's what she gets: a dead best man and a groom who just might be the killer.

Sometimes it seems everybody in Sin City has a secret, from the cocktail waitress trying to land a reality-show gig to the silver-haired cougar with a penchant for blackjack dealers. Maybe hunky pageant emcee Mario Suave is hiding something, too: like the hots for everybody's favorite beauty queen ...

Editorial Reviews

Jacqueline Vick
How can you not like a character named Happy Pennington, the daughter of a retired cop and the current reigning Ms. America? Well, I liked her! Add her sidekicks in crime-solving, fellow Beauty Queens Shanelle and Trixie, and a hunk named Mario Suave (yes!) and you have a fast-paced, funny, roller coaster ride through Vegas ... The Beauty Queen Mysteries are on my must read list, and I can't wait for the next installment.

    Slow start, good ending

    I have read quite a few of this author's novels and i found this one a little disappointing to start with. The first half was choppy and slow. I thought "the offing in oahu" was so funny and cute but this seemed to re-hash a lot of the same humor so i had a hard time getting into it. About halfway through, the mystery became more intriguing and i finally got into it and i enjoyed the rest of the book and finished it very quickly after that. I like that there are clues about who committed the murder but you dont figure it out until the last few chapters.
