If you are a fan of Victoria Laurie or Janet Evanovich, you’ll probably enjoy this book. The writer has a conversational tone and the main character, Izzy, has an inner monologue that is humorous all the way through the story.
Without giving too much away, Izzy and her best guy-pal Jack are trying to figure out who wanted to kill her “grandmother” (in actuality she is the grandmother of her dear departed husband). Izzy is unable to stop searching for the person responsible for the evil deed; she is like a bulldog once she gets an idea in her head. Someone is going to be brought to justice, come hell or high water.
In the midst of this murder mystery, another character emerges – a love interest for Izzy. Noel is everything she seems to want in a man, and as a bonus, he is a cop. Unfortunately, she doesn’t feel ready to be in a relationship and lacks confidence (especially when wearing high heels).
My favorite parts of the book, however, were scenes involving the Ben-Gay gang, which consists of little old ladies that were friends of her grandmother. Just like the television character Jessica Fletcher from Murder She Wrote, they become amateur detectives in order to find out who killed their knitting buddy.
I thoroughly enjoyed Murder, Mystery, & Dating Mayhem, and would be interested in reading a sequel if there were to be one. This story is worth reading for the Ben-Gay gang alone!
I gave this book 5 out of 5 Stars. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
