Overview

It's Your Party, Die If You Want To by Vickie Fee

“Down home and delightful.” —Carolyn Hart

Between a riverboat gambler-theme engagement party and a murder mystery dinner for charity, Dixie, Tennessee, party planner Liv McKay is far too frenzied to feel festive. Add to the mix her duties at the annual businesswomen’s retreat and the antics of a celebrity ghost-hunting diva, and Liv’s schedule is turning out to be the scariest thing about this Halloween—especially when the ladies stumble across a dead body in a cemetery…
 
Morgan Robison was a party girl with a penchant for married men and stirring up a cauldron of drama. Any number of scorned wives or frightened philanderers could be behind her death. As Liv and her best friend, Di, set out to dig up the truth, they’ll face the unexpected and find their efforts hampered by a killer with one seriously haunting vendetta…  
 
“Refreshing as a tall glass of sweet tea, Vickie Fee has crafted a series that celebrates the deadly traditions of Southern hospitality.” —Cheryl Hollon, author of Cracked to Death

Party planner Liv McKay is busy with two parties before Halloween, but she’s making time for a retreat for the women business owners of Dixie, Tennessee. However, the first night, the group’s president is found murdered. Morgan Robison wasn’t well liked around town for multiple reasons, not the least of which is her reputation as a husband stealer. But why did she push someone at the retreat too far? It was great to be back in Dixie with Liv, her best friend Di, and the rest of the characters I met in book one. They are all fun to be with, and I love their various relationships. The suspects are good, although the mystery gets derailed by party planning at times. Despite the weak pacing, there are some good twists and clues, and Liv picks up on the key clues in to time solve the mystery.

Liv was quite the busy bee in this installment. Planning a party, attending a retreat, and helping out with the murder mystery fundraiser. I love that it took place during October which made the events fun! Vickie Fee did a great job planning out this book.

A delightful second installment to this wonderful series! Author Vickie Fee had me laughing out loud only a few pages into, IT’S YOUR PARTY, DIE IF YOU WANT TO. She must have an outstanding sense of humor in real life, because it certainly shines through in her characters! This second book in the Liv and Di in Dixie Mystery series has everything book one had and oh so much more! This fantastic story flowed at a great pace. Author Fee added just the right amounts of humor and intrigue at the most perfect plot points. The mystery element of the story was cleverly written, keeping my mind busy trying to piece together clues even as new twists were introduced. When I finally read whodunit, I couldn’t believe it! I was so sure I had it figured out, only to find Ms. Fee had way outwitted me. If you were a fan of book one, DEATH CRASHES THE PARTY, you’re going to love, IT’S YOUR PARTY, DIE IF YOU WANT TO. If you haven’t read the first book, well, read it! You’ll love it too! Make sure to check out the back of the book for tips on hosting a murder mystery dinner!

To summarize: while I did enjoy this book, I never felt fully invested in the story or the characters. I did like Liv her party planning business and we get to see a bit more of that in this book with two fun themed parties she pulls off. I also liked the slight Halloween theme of the book. The murder mystery fell a bit flat for me and I never felt particularly invested in it. There aren't enough clues and hints to figure things out for yourself, the characters seem convinced a certain character was the murderer which just made me hope they were wrong as it was a bit much with everyone convinced she was the murderer. And when Liv figures out who the murderer is the reader doesn't get her thoughts and only find out some time later who the murderer is. The book has a bit of a slice of life feel with how we get a good feel for Liv her daily life. It was nice, although it felt like the mystery did get less space because of that. It was interesting to read about a married couple for a change, although they almost felt too normal at times. It was a nice Halloween themed read, but some things didn't fully work for me.

Tennessee is where my heart is, so cozies that are set in that beautiful place are like going home again. Vickie Fee's Liv and Di in Dixie Tn. Featuring party planner Liv McKay and her sidekick Di Soutter is a winner in my book. From planning a riverboat themed engagement party to a murder mystery dinner to benefit charities, the ladies seem more than capable to handle whatever they are handed. FTC Full Disclosure - A copy of this book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To by Vickie Fee is the second book in A Liv and Di in Dixie Mystery series. Liv McKay is a party planner in Dixie, Tennessee. Her business is called Liv4Fun. Liv is getting ready for the PWAD (Professional Women’s Alliance of Dixie). Morgan Robison is in charge of the event, but she has managed to push off a lot of work on others (like Liv). Morgan is a vice president at Dixie Savings and Loan (owned by her father). Morgan is the only child of wealthy parents who doted on her (in other words spoiled rotten). Morgan also has a penchant for married men (you can see where this is leading). Liv is in charge of their special guest for the retreat, Lucinda Grable (originally from Dixie). Lucinda has a paranormal reality show titled “P.S. Encounters”. The retreat is behind held at St. Julian’s Retreat Center. The PWAD group is using Lark Lodge. After an enjoyable dinner the guests are invited to the nearby family cemetery. There Lucinda attempts to contact spirits. The event is also being filmed for an episode of Lucinda’s show. While attempting to contact a spirit, Miss Annabelle disappears (Miss Maybelle has to keep a close eye on her). Everyone takes off to find Miss Annabelle which disrupts the event. Miss Annabelle is brought back by a Sister of the Moon. They are a pagan group staying at Sparrow Lodge. Miss Annabelle had wandered over to their outdoor event. Word spreads out to the search teams and everyone heads back to the lodge (it is a weekend event). On the way back Liv comes across Morgan laying on the ground with an odd grin on her face. Morgan is dead! The police are called and everyone gets questioned. This puts a damper on the event and the group decides to head home. Then Liv hears that Jasmine Green is arrested for Morgan’s murder. Jasmine would not hurt a fly. Jasmine is the aging hippie type. Liv sets out to find the real culprit and clear Jasmine’s name. The suspect list is not short. Morgan had been a busy girl. Join Liv as she narrows down the suspects to find the real killer! It's Your Party, Die If You Want To describes the daily life of Liv with her hubby, Larry Joe, her party planning business, lunch with friends, home repairs, Larry Joe’s work, friends, Liv’s nutty mother, etc. There is some investigation as Liv goes around accusing friends and acquaintances of the crime (it is a wonder any of them still speak to her). The murder was simple to solve. One little detail (a very tiny clue) is all you need to solve the crime. You should be able to figure it out before you reach page 50 (if it takes you that long). The novel is easy to read and it can easily be finished in three hours or less. I wish the author had spent as much time on the mystery as she did on creating Liv’s various friends and family as well as the town’s citizens. There are tips for hosting a murder mystery at the end of the novel. While this is the second book in the series, it can be read alone. The author does bring the reader up-to-date on what happened in the first book in the series. I give It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To 3 out of 5 stars. It is an okay book, but I thought it was lacking in content. I will not be continuing with this series. It is just not the right cozy mystery series for me.
