Is it Still Murder Even if She was a Bitch?

Is it Still Murder if She was a Bitch by Robin Leemann Donovan is an interesting cozy mystery. Donna Leigh is the main character and she is one of the co-owners of Marcel. Marcel is an advertising and marketing consulting agency. She co-owns the agency with Liv and Donny. 

Claire Dockens, a former co-worker and general menace, is killed at The Boy Scout Dinner from blunt force trauma (she with hit with something odd shaped). She made sure to make life miserable for Donna and Kyle, who also works at Marcel. When they hear about the murder they worry that they may be suspects. So does Clovis Cordoba Seville, another former coworker. Clovis is very self-centered. She has decided the police are after her and she wants Donna and Kyle to clear her name. So they decide to investigate. 

Donna, Kyle, Liv, and Donny set out to investigate along with the help of Peg and Babs (more co-workers). They investigate the crime scene, the victim's house, talk to various people from Claire's life, and even look into the construction company that was going to remodel Claire's home. The ad agency divides up into two teams to see who can solve the crime first. 

Donna also starts to get threats telling her to quit nosing around. This gets her a police detail to keep her safe. Of course, Clovis declares that someone is after her and she wants her own security detail to keep her safe. 

During the investigation Peg and Babs wreck a police car, injure two police officers, and knock down a construction companies building. They are a two person demolition crew! 

The story looked interesting (and sounds funny) but it turned out to be just a very long book and bordering on ridiculous. Maybe I do not have the right sense of humor. The murder was very easy to solve (and can be solved very early in the book). I give Is it Still Murder Even if She was a Bitch? 3 out of 5 stars. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Thank you for checking out my review.  I hope you have had a great week!  Happy Reading!
