If you are a fan of them and light mysteries though, you'll probably enjoy it.
But the series is worth another look at nook 2.
In addition to her catering, Penelope also works as a live-in chef to up-and-coming movie star, Arlena Madison. Penny and Arlena are out in a snow storm looking for their adorable dog, Zazoo, who has, during a storm related power outage, gotten out of the house and past the electronic fence. What they find is murder.
The book has both funny and serious notes. The murder mystery is quite serious but the look at the movie and television industry and those who populate it is done very tongue in cheek.
In addition to the copy of this book I purchased from Amazon, I was provided a digital advance reader copy of this book by the publisher via Netgalley.
It looks like everything will be working out for both of them. Everything seems to be going ok until a dead body is found on their front lawn in the snow. Once the body is identified things start to fall apart.
The book is very good and keeps everyone's attention until the killer is identified at the end of the book. I would recommend the book to all my friends and family. It is well worth your time to read it.
