Summary

A suspicious death at a party. A list of unusual suspects. A small town beauty consultant who just wants life to return to normal. 

Celia's life isn't a bed of roses. As a widow with two young boys, she's only happy when her boys are happy. Her business, providing makeup products to the citizens of Sunny Cove, puts food on the table and gives a purpose to her days. 

When a former classmate drops dead at a party, Celia is confused and wonders what could have caused her demise. Her confusion is turned into anxiety when the police name her as a prime suspect. Celia regrets attending the party where she was cajoled to offer free make overs to the party attendees. 

She can't think of anyone who would have wanted to kill the deceased. Still, in a town where anyone's business is everyone's business, she know the killer is lurking in plain sight. 

She can't afford to wallow in self-pity while there's a killer on the loose. Will she help to find the killer and restore normalcy to her life, her family and town or become the killer's next victim? 

If you want to enjoy a light-hearted read, with an amateur female sleuth and a gripping murder mystery with a touch of romance, then you'll love Celia Dube and all the friendly and not-so-friendly characters in Sunny Cove.

No cliffhanger, swearing or graphic scenes!

Well written and soothing

This book kept me hooked. I really like the writing. The characters are interesting and likeable. I love the way the descriptions are crafted. Now I really want to listen to the other books. Dini's voice is perfect for this. She does great character voices and is both sophisticated and calming. I adored listening to her. It was like having a classy and reassuring friend by my side every morning when I would listen.

An enjoyable and gripping story.

Ava Zuma's story captivated my attention from the start and right through until the end. The narration was done excellently, well done!
