Ellison just wanted a bid on re-doing her ex husbands office, but got a dead body instead. Anarchy to the rescue, but now he has a Colombo like partner, that immediately suspects Ellison of the murder. Skip to a cocktail party and we find Mr. White, killed in the dining room with a candlestick.
This murder is a eye opener for Ellison when she learns that spousal abuse does cross social and economic lines. As usual Ellison and her country club gossip help solve the crime. Fun, witty, and full of twists and turns. At least Mr. Coffee is still as dependable as always.
I love that the books are set in 1974, so many memories for me. Mr. Coffee, the clothes, the cars. At times I have to set my kindle aside till I stop laughing. Julie Mulhern hits the temperature of the times dead on.
Thank you Netgalley and Henery Press for the ARC in exchange for a honest review.
