A KILLING NOTION is on tour with Great Escapes, and this Texas girl is tickled pink to be one of the stops!
Homecoming is fast approaching in Bliss, Texas, and Harlow Jane Cassidy, the owner of Buttons & Bows dress shop, is up to her elbows in ribbon and fabric for the traditional mums and dresses. To the dismay of her boyfriend, Will, her stepfather sheriff, and his deputy son, she’s also knee-deep in a murder investigation. A local businessman has been killed and his football-player son, Shane, is the main suspect. The problem is that Shane is dating Will’s daughter, Gracie, and she’s related to Harlow (this is small-town Texas, y’all). So Harlow wants to help Will and Gracie by clearing Shane’s name before the big game. Can Harlow solve the mystery before Homecoming weekend? Or will her upcoming romantic getaway to the Texas Hill Country with Will be sidelined?
Readers will be enchanted by A KILLING NOTION. The Cassidy women and their individual charms are pure magic on the page. And the small town of Bliss is as quaint as the chiffon rosettes on Gracie’s Homecoming dress. The best part of this delightful book is that Melissa Bourbon actually crafts the mystery like a seamstress, skillfully sewing together the many pieces of the puzzle much like the pattern of a dress.
RATING 5 Limoncello shots! (Or should I go with bourbon?)
COMMENT for a chance to win a digital copy of either PLEATING FOR MERCY (book #1 in the Magical Dressmaking Mysteries) or LIVING THE VIDA LOLA (book #1 in the Lola Cruz Mysteries)
