Ashley Adams is catering a charity golf outing for a nonprofit that is working to cure cancer. When a high profile researcher who was only a few months away from bringing a promising treatment to market is found dead on the golf course, the victim’s golf partner is charged.
When Ashley learns that the suspect is her friend Ryan’s Uncle Charlie, the two of them set out to find the real killer. Meanwhile Ashley’s business partner Patty LaFontaine is acting strange and distant towards her, making Ashley wonder what is amiss.
As Ashley and Ryan get deep into their investigation, they uncover secrets about their friends and family that shock them. Uncle Charlie is looking guiltier by the day - will they find the real killer and prove his innocence in time?
A perfect book for readers who like cozy mysteries with women sleuths and pets. If you enjoy reading cozy mystery authors such as Harper Lin, Hope Callaghan or Susan Gillard of the Donut Hole mysteries, you will want to check out this series.
This is the second book in the series.
The opening chapter really grabbed my attention straight away and I found the story to be a fun, fast read. I felt that I knew the characters well after reading the first book and so I was happy to see my favourite characters again. The author didn't waste any time rehashing lots of information about the characters. There is just enough information for any new readers to the series to be caught up. Instead, the author builds up the scene of the crime in the first chapter and puts the reader right in the middle of the action from the beginning.
The story was a fun read which I found difficult to put down and I would certainly recommend it to any fans of the cosy genre.
The mystery had me entertained and guessing to the end. I prefer cosy mysteries to have a little bit of romance in them and so I loved the sweet romantic sub plot in this series.
