Monica Baker, divorcée, lives in the gatehouse behind her ex's Aunt Brenda's house. Brenda is a nutritionist at a high end elder residence while also heading B+B Catering. Her companion is Dior, a blue Great Dane.
Monica is a realtor-in-training at Brenda's friend Sunny's office while working on her license. The cast of characters in that office would make your head spin, and the clients read like the local scandal sheet. And Sunny's daughter Celine is no help when a client becomes a bit more "chummy" than anyone expects.
Throw in the poolboy, the cops, and a PI that happens to become the
corpse in question, combine all the ingredients for a juicy murder and a delightful new series by Maria Grazia Swan. I love Ms Swan's previous writing but these characters are different than anything before. Highly recommended .
Although about to earn her real estate license, Monica works as the owner's assistant and often stands in for her to fend off unwanted visits from Sunny's spoiled daughter and to show property in her boss's absence. On her free time Monica earns a bit of money as an catering assistant working for Brenda, the aunt of her ex-husband. There is so much bubbling under the surface for these women that it is no wonder that it spills over in the form of a dead body at an open house for one of the houses sold by Sunny to a family friend and catered by Brenda. Naturally the finger of suspicion points at Sunny, Brenda and Monica who had words with the man shortly before his death.
I requested and read an advanced readers' copy of Cooks, Crooks and a Corpse, but this review is completely voluntary. I always review books that I love. I also bought a personal copy of the book.
Monica loves her cute little pink Fiat 500 and even manages to stuff her Aunt Brenda's Great Dane into it.
We also meet interesting supporting and leading characters including more than one love interest.
The mysteries (yes, more than one intertwined) are resolved by the end of the book, so no cliff-hangers.
However, what will happen to Monica's love-life remains to be seen.
I pre-ordered the second book in the series, "Foods, Fools and a Dead Psychic" and am looking forward to reading it.
