Family conflicts are put center stage with the twins frantic about their mother’s plans to marry…marry a man she's only known for a short time. The groom-to-be’s nephew and client loves the idea his uncle is getting married, fires the twins for their opposition, and then is found murdered. Oh no, another dead body, “persons of interest” again, another investigation. I enjoyed the mature perspective and intelligence the characters bring to the story…ok, Sunny does youthfully giggle a bit over her budding romance which is endearing. The storyline of murder has elements expected for a cozy mystery—the lead characters find themselves mixed-up in murder, take on an amateur detective role, often circumvent the authorities, and find themselves in personal peril, but June provides descriptions of the bayou environment, southern food and manners, and delightful twists and turns with enough possible solutions that make this an engaging, fun read. I highly recommend this book for fans and newbies alike, and am eager to read the first two books to see how everyone got here from there!
Disclosure: I received an ARC, but my insights and opinions are voluntary and honest.
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 the owners of Twin Sisters Renovations, a home remodeling and renovation business. Sunny is younger by six minutes, has dyslexia, is unsure of herself, and when she’s anxious or scared, you can hear her humming or singing Christmas carols. Eve is more outgoing than her sister is, tends to flirt with the men she meets, and paints about her relationships and her grandson, the love of her life. Their older sister, Crystal, was the victim of a drive-by shooting when the twins were eight years old. Sunny and Eve met Dave Price when he purchased a fishing camp and hired them to give him ideas for fixing the place up. Both sisters are attracted to Dave, but he’s falling in love with Sunny and she with him, but they’re keeping the relationship from Eve because Sunny doesn’t want to hurt her sister. Both sisters are close to their mother, Miriam Gautreaux, who is almost eighty years old and lives in a nearby retirement community and are concerned when they learn she’s suddenly planning to marry Sugar Ledge Manor’s new resident, Alexander “Mac” MacCormick. Sunny and Eve don’t know anything about Mac and are worried he’ll hurt and/or take advantage of her. Sunny and Eve get into a confrontation with Edward Cancienne, Mac’s nephew and their client, with lots of Sugar Ledge Manor’s residents as witnesses when he encourages the couple to rush their wedding and then he fires them. When they go to his house to retrieve their tools, they discover his fully clothed body in the bathtub. Homicide Detective Wilet feels the twins may be guilty of murder. Clarice, one of the residents, wants to steal Mac away from Miriam, so when Clarice becomes violently ill during lunch and then dies at the hospital, Detective Wilet starts pointing his finger at Miriam.
