Ricki seems to be a magnet for murder. She often wonders why she left NY and took over her uncles bar-can't say I blame her! She has started catering and her first job---when a pirate falls (is pushed?) off one of the balconies--and it was a wedding! Well since Ricky was kind if known to be good at solving mysteries----

Friends in high places and some in very low places help this time. Of course she has to overcome her employees fear and sometimes hysterics!!

You are going to love all the characters and laugh at some of the antics. There is a twist in all this that will throw you for a loop!

About the Book: (from Amazon)

Nothing ruins a wedding reception like a pirate taking a dive off a third floor balcony!

Well, the best man dressed as a pirate—it’s Halloween, after all, and the wedding reception is a masquerade event. It's also the Top Shelf's first big catering job. Not exactly an auspicious beginning, but not surprising when Ricki is involved.

When the groom is arrested for the murder, the bride and her father beg Ricki to help prove his innocence, but Ricki soon finds more questions than answers. Is the groom as innocent as he seems? The bride and the best man used to be a couple. Could the groom have killed him either accidentally or on purpose? Would he have ruined his own wedding reception and missed his honeymoon in a fit of jealous rage?

Both men played football for their college, and both were headed for the pros. Was someone trying to coerce the victim into a point-shaving scheme and things got out of hand?

For that matter, who was the actual target? Just before the murder, the groom and best man switched costumes as a joke. Was the best man the intended victim or was it the groom?

And the biggest question of all—who was the killer clown?
