It may be easier to patch up an old home than a broken heart. But along the Louisiana bayou, where beauty and danger mingle all too seamlessly, thoughts of romance may have to simmer on the back burner . . .
Twin sisters and fellow divorcees Sunny Taylor and Eve Vaughn have established their home repair and remodeling business with an eye toward quality and personal attention. So when they’re approached by hunky Dave Price to fix up his bayou fishing camp, they’re more than happy to take the job—especially since they both secretly think he may prove to be more than just another satisfied customer . . .
The ramshackle campsite could certainly use a woman’s touch. What it does not need is a dead body—but that’s what the trio stumble across. Clearly, the poor soul was murdered—and once the town tongue-waggers get going, Sunny, Eve, and Dave come under suspicion of the police, not to mention potential clients . . .
Now, with their futures on the line, their brewing love triangle will have to wait. Helped—and harried—by the twins’ mother and her retirement home’s cadre of amateur sleuths, the trio starts snooping on their own. But when another dead body turns up, they’ll have to get their hands dirtier than a swamp-snake if they hope to clear their names . . .
Both the sisters use their unique ways of coping with stress. sunny with her humming and Eve with her painting. In this, the second in the series I imagine there is a lot of Christmas Carols being hummed and quite a few canvases being used. There is Dave, a new character whom both like and momma and her fellow sleuths come to help solve a murder at Dave's fishing camp for which the please look to the three of them and then a second body. This cozy will keep you on your toes and guessing to the end. With plenty of twist and turns you will be jumping from suspect to suspect until the end. You will laugh even as you gasp. Momma and her friends are a riot. Enjoy yourself today and take a break with "Dead on the Bayou".
My rating of "Dead on the Bayou - Twin Sisters Mystery Book 2" is 4.25 out of 5 stars.
Sunny Taylor and Eve Vaughn are identical twins, with completely different personalities, who live in the small town of Sugar Ledge, Louisiana. Sunny and Eve are both divorced and have recently started a home remodeling and renovation business. Sunny is unsure of herself and when she’s anxious or scared, she starts humming or singing Christmas carols (a result of being traumatized by the death of their older sister, Crystal). Eve is more outgoing than her sister is, tends to flirt with the men she meets, and paints about her relationships. Both sisters are close to their mother, who lives in a nearby retirement community. Sunny is recovering from an injury to her shoulder caused by a gunshot and unable to perform any physical carpentry work but she agrees to take a look at the bayou fishing camp Dave Price recently purchased. Sunny and her sister are attracted to Dave and both hope he becomes more than just a satisfied customer, but Sunny feels she should back off because Eve is currently emotionally insecure. Sunny and Eve meet Dave at the fishing camp to give him ideas for fixing the place up. Sunny finds a large trash bag in the utility room, and when she tries to move it away from the hot water heater, discovers it contains the body of Eve’s neighbor, Clara Wilburn. When they try to pay their respects to Mrs. Wilburn’s son, Royce (who lived with his mother due to his gambling obsession and debts), he accuses Sunny of killing his mother. Sunny learns that the victim wasn’t very well liked, not even by her family. Dave is questioned by the police and told he is a suspect. Dave is arrested and the twin’s business is in jeopardy because their names are linked to another murder.
