Customer Reviews

I love reading books that come with recipes.
Shannon Steffey
This mystery is well written, and the characters are all three dimensional.
Nora A. Deret
It has too much bull, too much food and too little action.
Enrique

I enjoy the Catered "holiday" books very much. I generally think they are very well written but did anyone else notice a serious problem with this particular book. One of the suspects, Liam, is slapped in the beginning of the book by his wife, Kylie. The sisters then follow her to a boutique where they question her about what she might know about the murder. Many pages later, sister Libby goes to the gym to question a new character, Katrina, who is married to Liam. I read and re-read the pages containing these references and can not understand how an editor could miss such a blatant error. So while I enjoyed the book as I usually do, the thing I remember most is that the mistake.

This is the first of Ms. Crawford's books I have read and it is also my introduction to the sleuthing world of Libby and Bernie Simmons. As St. Patrick's Day approaches, Bernie and Libby are busy as bees in their shop, "A Little Taste Of Heaven", when Bernie receives a distress call from her bartender-boyfriend; Brandon, asking them to meet him at R.J."s, the local tavern in which he works. He had had problems with the unruly members of the "Corned Beef and Cabbage Drinking Club" the previous night, but nothing had prepared him for what he discovered when he opened the establishment the following morning. Big, burly "Corned Beef and Cabbage " member, Mike Sweeney is found head first and dead in a keg of green beer!! Was it an accident? Has Mike been murdered ? Who would and/or could do such a thing and why? In no time at all, another C.B. & C. member, Duncan Nottingham, is accused and under house arrest for the crime. His wealthy Aunt, Bree Nottingham, checkbook in hand, hires Bernie, Libby and their retired Police Chief Father, Sean, to investigate Sweeney's demise and prove Duncan's innocence. But is he?? Duncan was loathed by many as an associate of Sweeney's with his unscrupulous dealings plus he was made into a laughing stock by some he thought were friends. When , as a cruel twist to the already confusing case, Duncan's "Girlfriend", Liza Sopranto, is missing--the evidence gets more damning. What part did C.B.& C. members, Connor, Patrick and Liam have to play in all of this?? They are husky enough to have done the deed. Or did Libby's ex-flame, Orion have a hand in the crime? You'll have sympathy for quiet, love-struck mortician, Marvin and think you have the mystery figured out more than once, only to be whisked down another dark avenue.
Ms.

A Catered St. Patrick's Day by Isis Crawford
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.

A Catered St. Patrick's Day
By Isis Crawford
Copyright February 2012
Publisher Kensington Publishing

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.
