Description

What do you get when you combine mango cake, murder, and Mom?
An unlikely recipe for a better life!

When Mom convinces Christy to ditch her “lousy” job and help with the catering business, their fledgling partnership suffers a few setbacks. One of them can’t cook, they’re short a catering van, and the guest of honor at their first party is murdered. That would be bad enough, but then, Christy’s cousin, Celia, becomes the prime suspect.

Solving a murder is no easy task, but when drunken death threats, a dashing detective, and terrifying taxidermy are added into the mix, the case becomes almost impossible to crack. Who knew a small town like Fletcher Canyon could be filled with so much craziness?

Will the disaster-prone duo find the real killer before Celia’s reputation is destroyed, or will Celia end up in prison for murder? Find out in this comedy cozy!

This novella is the first book in the Mom and Christy’s Cozy Mysteries series, and is a complete mystery that you can read in an hour or two. No strong language. No graphic violence. Cute cat!

    Interesting characters, with skills and foibles. Convoluted plot for so short a story, but it works. Well worth trying the next book.
  • So glad I picked this up!

    So surprised this was a freebie. Very cute and funny story. If you like cozy mysteries, this one is one to try. Amateur detective stories are by nature unrealistic, but I’ve got to give props to this one being more believable than others. The Mom character is my favorite! She’s so funny. It’s a quick read that only takes and hour or so to finish. Perfect for reading on your phone. And at free, it’s a bargain!
