Ms America and the Naughtiness in New Orleans by Diana Dempsey

(Beauty Queen Mysteries #6) Who better than Ms. America Happy Pennington to grace Mardi Gras festivities in never-say-die New Orleans? She packs good looks, party moves, and sleuthing smarts--which come in handy when the king for an elite old-line krewe is bumped off during a Carnival parade.

All too soon Happy learns the centuries-old French Quarter is not all jazz, Creole cuisine, and cocktails: evil lurks there, too, even amid the pageantry of the Big Easy's most gleeful season. Yet no ghost, vampire or even voodoo spirit will keep our scrappy beauty queen from nabbing the killer--not when the stakes are sky-high for someone near and dear to her heart.

Find out why readers call the Beauty Queen Mysteries "super-fun reads" they can't put down until the last page is turned ...

Author Diana Dempsey never competed in beauty pageants but she did the next best thing: she worked in TV news. After a dozen years as an Emmy-winning anchor and reporter, Diana hung up her mic to become an author of fast and fun romantic fiction. Her novels have been called "almost impossible to put down" (Romance Reviews Today), "skillfully plotted and filled with realistic detail" (Library Journal), and "spicy, sexy, and sultry" (Booklist). Romance Writers of America nominated her first novel for a RITA award for Best First Book. Another was a Top Pick of Romantic Times and a third was a selection of the Doubleday Book Club.

Just finished Ms. America and the Naughtiness in New Orleans - a terrific mystery with well developed characters, good writing and dialogue, and an accurate depiction of the Big Easy during the Mardi Gras season - not to mention reminders of several of my favorite restaurants. As a male reader I also got a kick out of the care that the main characters devoted to their decisions about what to wear in various situations -- but this ain't just chick lit, and I expect the good writing and intriguing suspense will soon bring me to other D. D. mysteries. Brava!
