“Well written with plenty of suspects and red herrings” (Cozy Booknook Review of “Dearly Departed”)

December 28, 2015

This is the second book in the series and it’s very enjoyable! Amy has been asked to book a wake tour for the former employers of Paisley McGregor, a maid who became wealthy herself. Paisley intends to have her former employers sprinkle her ashes at stops along the tour and at the final stop have her will read. As Amy soon finds out, there are some people on the tour who have secrets they would rather keep buried and will murder anyone who gets in their way.

I enjoyed the characters, especially Amy, Fanny, and Marcus (Amy’s boyfriend). Fanny is my favorite character, she is very entertaining and quite funny. The story is well written, with plenty of suspects and red herrings. I was kept guessing until the end. This can easily be read as a stand-alone, I didn’t have an opportunity to read the first book and didn’t feel lost. I’m eager to read the first book to see what happened.
