Harrie McKinsey and her best friend and business partner Ginger Vaughn discover that some secrets are best left buried when retired Senator Philip Lawrence hires their editing firm to assist him with a book about the famous unsolved 1950 murder of a cocktail waitress that led to the end of illegal casinos in New Mexico. When the Albuquerque newspaper announces that Senator Lawrence is writing the book, one person with a connection to the case is murdered and another narrowly escapes death. Despite the best efforts of Ginger's husband and an FBI agent Harrie finds infuriatingly attractive, the energetic pair cannot resist trying to discover who is so anxious to destroy the book, the senator and his big secret. But will their proficiency and pluck be up to the challenge when they land in a dark house with a cold, calculating killer who has nothing else to lose?

The Easter Egg Murder based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The Easter Egg Murder is not a mainstream murder book. It does not concentrate on the gory details of a murder, but leads a reader throughout the book to understanding how and why the murder occurred. Cliffhangers end every chapter making you want to continue reading even when sleep is calling. What’s unique about this story is that Patricia employs the small world concept into her mystery. The Easter Egg Murder is an enthralling well written book that will keep you wanting more until the very end…
I just recently started reading this book. I have never really been a big fan of murder mysteries, but with this one, I am hooked! Okay, the author, Patricia Wood, is my cousin, and you may think that I may be a little motivated to help her promote her book. But, trust me, I am a very selective reader, and if I found this book to be dull or not well written, then I would put it down. But the fact is, I can't wait to see what happens next! Her writing skills far exceed my expectations. When she first told me a few years ago at a family reunion that she was working on this book, I thought the title sounded a little corny. But when you start reading and learn of what the story is about, the title makes a lot of sense! Don't judge a book by its cover. Get it and read it for yourself. If you are a lover of mysteries and suspense, you will be glad you did. Or if you just love a well written, well plotted book, this one is for you.
