Dressed to Kill

Happy Tuesday!  It is book release day!  Summer Secrets, The Secret Baby Room, Dressed to Kill, Wicked Charms, A Week at the Lake, The Book of Speculation are just a few of the books that were released today.  So many wonderful books and not enough time to read them all!  If I just had a maid to do the housework, I would be set (a girl can dream).

Dressed to Kill by Lynn Cahoon is the fourth book in the A Tourist Trap Mystery series.  Jill Gardner is the owner of Coffee, Books, and More.  Jill is also the community liaison to the city council and dating Greg King.  Greg is a police detective with the South Cove Police Department.  The latest community business meeting is being held at Vintage Duds.  Unfortunately, Vintage Duds is owned by Greg’s ex-wife, Sherry.  Sherry is currently dating Kent Paine who is the bank branch manager.  Sherry keeps making digs at Jill and does her best to see Greg as often as possible (Sherry is the one who cheated on Greg).

Jill gets through the meeting without doing bodily harm to Sherry and looks forward to time with Greg.  Jill and Greg have volunteered to help with “Dying for Trouble” mystery dinner theater at the South Cove Winery.  Just as rehearsals are starting a scream rings out!  Kent Paine is dead on the stage.  The suspect list is quite long since Kent was a known womanizer.  There is also some speculation that he was helping himself to bank funds.  Greg is off to investigate with a reminder to Jill to keep out of it.  Jill has not listened to Greg before and she will not listen to him this time.  Jill is off investigating leads and sticking her nose into other people’s business.  Who killed Kent Paine?  Why did they want him dead?  Do you think Greg will ever get used to Jill investigating?

You will have to read Dressed to Kill to find out!  Though this is the fourth book in the series, it can easily be read without having read any of the other books in the series.  I give Dressed to Kill 4 out of 5 stars.  It has a lovely setting, characters that are relatable and likeable, but the mystery was very easy to solve!  I am looking forward to reading the next book in The Tourist Trap Mystery series.

I received a complimentary copy of Dressed to Kill from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  The review and opinions expressed are my own.

If you like Amish mysteries, there is a new series by Guideposts.  It is called Sugarcreek Amish Mysteries.  I have never been disappointed with a  series from Guideposts.  Thank you for visiting today!  I am currently reading The Longest Yard Sale by Sherry Harris (really enjoying it).  Have a lovely afternoon and Happy Reading!
