Book Review-Drop Dead Handsome-The Painted Lady Inn Mysteries #2-M.K. Scott

Monday, June 29, 2020

Living your dream isn't always what you think it was going to be. Donna's dream was to own and operate a B&B. Well she did it--although she was still working as a nurse! It is a lot more work then she thought it would be! Her sister-in-law and her brother pitch in to help when they can.

Several of the people she graduated high school with decided to have a reunion at her B&B. Unfortunately they were the very people she did not exactly like! There were others there as well--some nice--some--oh well. There was a story about a ghost that haunted the B&B-luckily the ghost didn't show---There was also a rumor about diamonds hidden somewhere from long ago in the house. That brought at least one little old lady--who you are really going to like--she tries to be so helpful until Donna realizes she is trying to get her room at a reduced rate or free!! The others are really unforgettable as well--as is Jasper--Donna's dog!!

Then one of the guests is found dead in the woods. The Sheriff (who was very much in Donna's life)-had to find the killer. Donna had to try and help since having a dead body associated with her B&B would not be good for business.

You will be absolutely surprised at who did it and especially how it came to be that it happened!

This is a clean cozy mystery that will have you groaning and laughing at the antics that go on! There are recipes at the end which are written in a way that I might even be able to follow them-and they do sound delicious!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

The Painted Lady Inn is open for business and limping along in the B and B world. A high school reunion package assembles Donna’s least desirable classmates, including the backstabbing cheerleader, her narcissistic high school crush, and Arnie, whose cheesy poem had everyone calling her, hot mama. It’s all something she liked to forget. These are the normal guests.

An octogenarian self-proclaimed sleuth, Father Christmas, a dognapping couple, and a pair who is copying everything in the Inn to set up their own competitive establishment rounds out the group. Maria, the sister-in-law, has a matchmaking agenda for Donna. Daniel, her brother, finds himself serving as a referee with one guest’s multiple wives.

High school reunions can be murder. Detective Mark Taber is on the trail of the murderer, when he isn’t interfering in a smitten Arnie’s determined bid to woo the no nonsense innkeeper.

About the Author: (from Amazon)

M. K. Scott is the husband and wife writing team behind The Painted Lady Inn Mysteries. Morgan K Wyatt is the general wordsmith, while her husband, Scott, is the grammar hammer and physics specialist. He uses his engineering skills to explain how fast a body falls when pushed over a cliff and various other felonious activities. The Internet and experts in the field provide forensic information, while the recipes and B and B details require a more hands on approach. Morgan's daughter, who manages a hotel, provides guest horror stories to fuel the plot lines. The couple's dog, Chance, is the inspiration behind Jasper, Donna's dog. Murder Mansion is the first book in The Painted Lady Inn Mysteries. Overall, it is a fun series to create and read. Drop Dead Handsome is the second book in the series. Killer Review should be out in October 2016.
