Kelly is thrilled when she gets a visit from a cousin she hasn’t seen in years. Becky’s cosmetics company is taking off, and she just might have laid the foundation for a big-money buyout. It’s a time to celebrate—but Kelly is heartbroken when a killer puts an end to their happy reunion during a mysterious midnight meeting near the shore.
Despite multiple warnings to steer clear, Kelly starts shadowing a variety of suspects both inside and outside the beauty business—when she isn’t busy filling the racks of the Lucky Cove Resale Boutique with lots of new inventory from a local shopaholic. Gossip and accusations are flying, but there’s no glossing over this ugly crime, and she’s going to make sure the culprit faces justice…
Since the first book in this series, MURDER WEARS A LITTLE BLACK DRESS, I can’t get enough of the Resale Boutique Mysteries. BEAUTY AND THE DECEASED was a prime example of why.
BEAUTY AND THE DECEASED was everything, and more, than I expect from this series. As always, author Debra Sennefelder transported me back to Luck Cove and all that I love about it. The characters, Lucky Cove Resale Boutique, and all of the fun and drama that comes with this series were all ramped up, making this the best book in the series so far.
Protagonist Kelly was as on point as ever, both in her business and her sleuthing. Investigating along with her, I was enthralled with how this mystery was playing out. However, even though I was enthralled, I had no idea who the killer was! From one chapter to the next, clues that were adding up for Kelly, were only becoming a light bulb over my head pages after Kelly had them figured out. Needless to say, I had no idea whodunit until the reveal. All I can say is, Wow!
BEAUTY AND THE DECEASED, is the cozy you’ve been waiting all year to read. And Debra Sennefelder is the author you’ll most look forward to reading in 2022.
