About the Author
Rumer Haven is probably the most social recluse you could ever meet. When she’s not babbling her fool head off among friends and family, she’s pacified with a good story that she’s reading, writing, or revising—or binge-watching something on Netflix. Hailing from Chicago, she presently lives in London with her husband and probably a ghost or two. Rumer has always had a penchant for the past and paranormal, which inspires her writing to explore dimensions of time, love, and the soul. Visit Rumer at: www.rumerhaven.com

And, oh boy, were they keeping a lot from each other. Their secrets come out as they grapple with solving the mystery of the murder. I was thrown for more than one loop throughout the story - the author is great at messing with your mind until she wants you to know the truth. The pacing of Coattails and Cocktails is just right. I was vested in these characters and the story every step of the way.
The atmosphere of the writing and the setting were in perfect sync - both have an elegant vibe that draws you back to an era gone by. Makes me want to dress up, put some finger waves in my hair, grab a highball, and join them at the party.
Scandal, rumor and class all play roles. Sort of the opposite of a locked door mystery, this wealthy mansion has the most modern conveniences incuding hidden passageways and trick levers. Even those who seem to have an alibi when a murder is discovered continue to have motive and opportunity.
This is a quick read but also a wonderful workout for the readers powers of observation and deduction.
I accepted this book for review.
It is 1929 and Ransom Warne, a Chicago tycoon throws a party on his country estate. Unfortunately one of his guests will end up murder before the party is finished.
One of the guests is Hollywood starlet Lottie Landry who is celebrating her engagement to her co star Noble. She is having doubts about him as her former guardian Ransom does not like him.
Thrown in that each other halves think they are cheating with each other. A murder mystery that seems like an old black and white movie. An interesting read.
The dinner party starts and ends with a murder. Who did it? Every single one is a suspect. Everyone has a motive. There are secrets and lies. But before the first lights of dawn will greet the new day the tragic truth of the mystery will be revealed.
I couldn’t let go of this Dinner Party. It captured me and sure will you. Rumer Haven created strong characters, you’re connecting with immediately. I like the way she arranged the story around each of them to solve finally the murder. Coattails & Cocktails is a succeeded cozy mystery you should read with a nice Gin Rickety at hand (or any other cocktail you prefer). Cheers!
