“If you’re daunted by the number of books in this series, don’t be. They are great just to pick up and enjoy any time of the year.”
~ Under the Covers

Set in New Orleans, this cozy mystery is perfect for fans just getting into the genre or are looking for an easy read. Initially, I started this book in audio and while it was okay, I think I much preferred reading the book instead.

When Carmela and Ava catch the end of a murder happening in a church, they are forced to give their statements and try to remember their dear friend in the way she was meant to be remembered instead of how she was killed. But of course Carmela won’t give up that easily.

This case is made a little more complicated when something also goes missing from the church that their friend was killed in. So the cops are having a more difficult time with it.

I really liked this story. It’s a great one for readers who are looking for a refresher because Ava and Carmela together are always a great time. I really like exploring their friendship because while Carmela also has her boyfriend, Badcock, this is another type of relationship I like seeing panned out in my books. And because the victim is one of their close friends and regular scrapbooking buddies, friendship is a big theme explored in this book.

Again, you don’t need to read every book in order for this series because they are mysteries and they standalone well so if you’re daunted by the number of books in this series, don’t be. They are great just to pick up and enjoy any time of the year.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
