This is the third book in the Twin Sisters Mystery but my first book by the author. However, I didn't have a problem keeping up with what was going on. Sunny Taylor and Eve Vaughn are twin sisters who own Twin Sisters Remodeling and Repair in a small town in south Louisiana. Sunny was married for a short while years ago and Eve has been married and divorced three times and has a married daughter and a grandson in Houston. They both care for the same man, Dave, but he and Sunny are secretly seeing each other. Their mom, Miriam, is living in a senior care facility and they have just found out that she has a beau in the facility and they are planning to marry. The sisters are concerned because Mac has just moved in, isn't from the area and they don't know anything about him. As it turns out, they are remodeling Mac's nephew's home. Edward Cancienne is an attorney in town and is trying to push Miriam and Mac's wedding up. Edward gets into an argument with the sisters at the retirement home where their argument is seen by many of the residents and he fires them on the spot. Unfortunately, when they went to his house to retrieve their tools, they discover his fully clothed body in his bathroom. They are suspects in his murder but the detective doesn't have enough evidence to arrest them. As the two do their own investigations into his murder, they uncover different people who might want Edward died. Things really get hot when a resident of the home gets sick at lunch and later dies. This is a woman who has said that she is interested in Mac too. Now not only the sisters are suspects in a murder but will Miriam become a suspect? This has a surprise ending that I didn't see coming. This is a good mystery that started out slowly but gained momentum as it went along. It is told from Sunny's viewpoint and she has some problems carried over from her childhood when she witnessed her older sister's murder. That is a side mystery in the story. I received a complimentary copy from Lyrical Underground through NetGalley and this review is my honest thoughts about the book.

Sunny and Eve are the twin sisters of Twin Sisters Remodeling and Repair in Louisiana. When their latest client, and nephew of their mother’s new finance, turns up dead after he fires the pair, from the remodeling job they were doing on his new home, things don’t look good for the twins. Now they have to clear their names, find out more about the man their mother wants to marry after practically just meeting him, and grow their business. Sunny and Eve are quite the pair. As with all identical twins, they may look alike, but they certainly are two different people. While Sunny suffers with dyslexia and hasn’t been good with romantic relationships, up to now, Eve has been married a number of times and is still looking for her soulmate. The uniqueness of each twin made this a fun read and I felt like I was back on the bayou at a camp. While this is the third book in the Twin Sister Mystery series, it is the first that I have read. It is well written with well develop characters, a strong story line, and enough information that it can be read as a stand alone without having read the previous two books…which I’ll be reading very soon here. I can’t wait to spend more time with the twins in the next book.

Eve and Sunny are back again in A Manor Of Murder. Twin sisters, Eve and Sunny share a close bond and are the apples of their mother's eye, usually. When their mom finds romance in her assisted living facility, the girls couldn't be more surprised. More shocking is the news that she is getting married, something that sets off red flags and fireworks. The sisters have a connection to mom's love interest, they are working on renovations in his nephew's home. When a fight ensues, the sisters find themselves embroiled in a murder mystery so twisted it will leave you shaking your head. I enjoy the relationships in this book, it showed the honest reality of most families. I was pleased with the ending and I'm looking forward to reading the next book. I voluntarily read an ARC of this book provided by the publisher and NetGalley.

A Manor of Murder is the third book in the Twin Sisters Mystery Series. Having jumped into this book first, I think it was pretty easy to get to know our heroines, Eve and Sunny. The story was about the sisters, who renovate homes for a living, finding a big client of theirs dead - right after a loud argument resulting in their firing. In the midst of the murder investigation, Eve and Sunny's mother, Miriam, is also planning on getting married to Mac, a man she only recently met at her assisted living facility. The story was enjoyable to me and I felt that it was a quick read. My only complaint is that I wish there was more of a romance development with Sunny and her boyfriend Dave. I will be looking for more books in this series and more from this author! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from NetGalley.
