Realize the author has put out other books along the same lines, just different holidays and after reading 1/2 of the first page I know I will be hunting down the rest of the books to read.
Being as I do bake just listening, reading about how they are handling the dough makes me think I can learn something from them by reading this book. The luck is with them, besides the 4 leaf clovers they have the kitchen witch there.
I remember making them to sell at craft shows.
Libby and Bernie run the bakery shop and live upstairs with their Dad.
Brandon is the bar tender that covers for the morning guy cuz he's in the hospital. Til he finds Mike out back.
Mike is dead and now Duncan is arrested. His aunt comes to his rescue and wants the family to find out who really did murder Mike so Duncans' name can be cleared. The family (Libby, Bernie and their dad Sean) has done investigations before because they just know everybody in town and how they are related to one another.
The girls start by visiting with Duncan and he tells them his story, several different ones. They then go visit with Brandon at the bar as he's on duty to maybe run a few things past him.
Their father also is following up a lead with the guy who drives the hearse. They all get leads to other sources and trace them
out as well.
What each of them has to go through to get the answers is sometimes too funny.
The best part of this book for me was their daily routine of making and baking the bread, priceless!
Good mystery story also. Can't wait to get the authors other holidays books.

Gastronomical dream team Bernie and Libby Simmons wade into a Celtic knot of malice and mayhem when a St. Patrick's celebration goes terribly wrong...
To most of the people of little Longely, New York, St. Paddy's Day means good food, great music, and plenty of Guinness. But when the lifeless body of Mike Sweeney floats to the top of a vat of green beer, it looks like the luck o' the Irish has just run out.
Unfortunately for the Simmons sisters, the number one suspect is related to one of their very best catering customers, the pampered and powerful Bree Nottingham. When Bree visits A Little Taste of Heaven to beseech them to clear her nephew's name, they just can't say no.
But the more information Bernie and Libby stir up, the more Duncan Nottingham looks like a killer. Known for his hot temper and love of the drink, Duncan and the deceased were both part of the Corned Beef and Cabbage Club, a group with more buried history than the Emerald Isle. And each member--especially Duncan--had a motive to sing Sweeney his last Irish lullaby. A motive they don't want anyone revealing.
For Bernie and Libby, the situation is deadly and in danger of boiling over. And they can't count on good old Saint Pat to drive out the snake in their midst...they'll have to do it themselves, before a murderer strikes again.
The Dynamic Duo of Bernie and Libby Simmons are well known in their hometown of Little Longley, New York. It was a little after 9 am one morning and Bernie and Libby were working in their shop kitchen rolling out pie dough for sale and special orders.Read more ›

Storyline was somewhat flat. Not much to carry you from one chapter to the next. The book did not do justice to the wonderful title.Published on November 15, 2013 by Scarlett
I love reading books that come with recipes. Libby and Bernie are two ladies I would love to bake with. These books are witty and clever,while also being slightly hokey.... Read morePublished on March 12, 2013 by Shannon Steffey
I like thrillers and action novels, this one promised both but its been a disappointment for me. It has too much bull, too much food and too little action.Published on November 26, 2012 by Enrique

Isis Crawford is a FUN author. In between reading serious books, a great cooking book mystery is the best therapy anyone can hold onto. Thank you Isis!Published on March 2, 2012 by Gramma Er
