Murder Takes The Cake by Evelyn David is the second book in the “Sullivan Investigations” mystery series. Publisher: Echelon Press Publishing, May 2009
Evelyn David invites you to attend the wedding of Bridget O’Herlihy and Joshua Lasky. The ceremony will be held at the Willard hotel in Washington D.C. Please R.S.V.P. (In case of murder, the ceremony may be delayed.)
It’s the week before Thanksgiving and all’s not right in Mac Sullivan’s world. His detective agency needs paying clients; his goddaughter needs help staying alive long enough to say her “I do’s;” his best friend needs to find some missing caskets; his Irish wolfhound needs a bath; and he desperately needs a how-to book on modern dating techniques.
It’s the week before Thanksgiving and all’s not right in Rachel Brenner’s world. Her son has ditched her for a ski trip with his new girlfriend; someone is stealing caskets and forging her inventory records; and her romantic life consists of hit-and-miss dates with a private detective who won’t even commit to a car purchase much less a serious relationship. Weddings can be murder!
Mac finds himself involved in so many cases that are someone connected to one person. Who this person is will be discovered as you read this humorous mystery. I enjoyed this story and can’t wait for the next book in this series. My rating: 4 stars
