About the Author

Julie Mulhern is the USA Today bestselling author of The Country Club Murders. She is a Kansas City native who grew up on a steady diet of Agatha Christie. She spends her spare time whipping up gourmet meals for her family, working out at the gym and finding new ways to keep her house spotlessly clean—and she’s got an active imagination. Truth is—she’s an expert at calling for take-out, she grumbles about walking the dog and the dust bunnies under the bed have grown into dust lions.

Aggie has met someone who makes her sing & dance, who makes her heart smile, for the first time since her beloved husband died. It's lovely to see her blooming again, & I thought it was sweet how Ellison was watching over Aggie to make sure all is well. But as a situation arises, Aggie & Ellison must team up to prove Mac's - Aggie's new boyfriend - innocence. Ellison shows Aggie that she's truly family, Aggie undergoes a transformation, something I loved reading about! Al gives Aggie his blessing so she feels free to love life once more! A really enjoyable read, author Julie Mulhern has created characters I want to know more about, & I enjoy stepping back into the 70s! This is a nice way to wait for the next book in this series!

This was an enjoyable short story. It was fun to see the story told from Aggie’s perspective. The Country Club Mysteries is a great series. I can just imagine what Aggie looked like after the makeover that Ellison Russell helped with. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

You would think writing a short story, especially a mystery, would be very difficult thing to do. However, author Julie Mulhern did so flawlessly. She pack all of the aspects of a full sized mystery into one amazing short story. I thought everything was wrapped going to be tied up in a nice, tidy bow when a suspect is named early on. I should have known it wouldn’t all be so easy. Mulhern did a twisty turn that took me completely by surprise! DIAMOND GIRL has great relationships among the characters, a cunning mystery, and as always, Julie Mulhern’s writing is nothing short of perfection.

I loved it just as much as I have loved all the books in the Country Club Murders series. And Julie Mulhern is a fabulous author with realistic characters and a brilliant setting. Seriously needs to be made into Hallmark Movies & Mysteries series!

DYNAMITE IN A SMALL PACKAGE! Julie Mulhern has managed to give us a fantastic mystery in short form! It stars Aggie and her new love interest Mac who has a catering business and Aggie’s employer, Ellison Russell. There’s been an incident and it is up to Aggie & Ellison to save the day. Mulhern manages to take us on a quick adventure that gives you background info on Aggie’s life, involves you with all the characters, keeps you intrigued with the story and makes you wonder when Ellison is going to find the dead body! Life with the Country Club set is still not dull but Aggie is now a full-fledged player!

This Country Club short story concentrates on Aggie, rather than Ellison Russel. As a result, there is not much about the Country Club, no Frances Walford, no Anarchy Jones (but Mr Coffee does make several appearances!), and not a dead body in sight. That does not mean that the story is any less enjoyable than the other stories – it just has a slightly different focus. Aggie has been mourning her dead husband (and private-eye partner) for a long time, but has now met a nice widower, who is making her very happy: “Al is gone, taken too soon by cancer. I miss him every day. Mac is here. And Mac has a rare salami.” (Mac’s salami is relevant to the story). Naturally, things cannot run smoothly, or there would be no story. Mac is accused of stealing Mrs Clayton’s pearls whilst catering for her party, and it turns out that he has a past, though swears he has nothing to do with the theft. Aggie is determined to clear his name: “I do believe him. But a jewel thief and missing pearls go together like chocolate and peanut butter”. Normally, it is Aggie assisting Ellison Russell, but this time it is Ellison, with her expert knowledge of the Country Club ladies and their habits who comes to Aggie’s (and Mac’s) aid. There are several twists and turns in this short story and it keeps your interest throughout. This could be read as a stand-alone, but is probably better if you are familiar with the Country Club setting. It certainly makes an excellent job of filling a “Country Club” gap, while we await the next full-length instalment.
