Deadly Ever After is another easy, breezy Lighthouse Library cozy mystery.
Lucy and Connor are enjoying their beachside engagement party with friends and family. Who should crash the party but Lucy’s ex-boyfriend, Ricky, and his pushy mother, Evangeline. Evangeline still wants Ricky to be Lucy’s groom regardless of what Lucy or Ricky want. Later, a man is found murdered. Lucy and her mom invite themselves along to do the death notification with the local police. From that point forward, Lucy is determined to solve the crime.
I love the charismatic characters in this series. But this particular entry was not my favorite. The mystery was too easy to solve. The local police seemed to never have watched any television police shows. Questioning all the witnesses together in a big room? Allowing two civilians as ride-alongs on a death notification? It pulled me out of the plot each time it happened. However, I did love the perfect ending of Deadly Ever After. 4 stars!
Thanks to Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
