murder takes the cake
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.
Join Mac, Rachel, Whiskey, JJ, Edgar, and the O'Herlihy clan for a second round of murder, mayhem, and laughter in Murder Takes the Cake – A Sullivan Investigations Mystery.
Weddings can be murder for more than the bride. Murder Takes the Cake by Evelyn David is a fast, funny, and festive sequel to last year's hit, Murder Off the Books.
Read A Review:

Rachel Brenner discovers caskets are missing from the funeral home where she works.  She asks Mac Sullivan, a private detective and her boyfriend, to look into it. 


Mac is also trying to protect his goddaughter who thinks someone is trying to kill her.  It doesn't take long for Mac to really believe her.


J. J. Whiskey, Mac's office manager, sets out to help with the cases.  By being in the right place at the wrong time, she discovers the thief of the caskets and sets out to help put him back on the straight and narrow.


Mac and Rachel's relationship keeps getting mixed up in everything and there is plenty of humor to go around. 


Mac's goddaughter's fiancÚ and his family are rich and want everyone to know it.  But could there be a tie-in to what is going on?


Evelyn David is the pseudonym for Marian Edelman Borden and Rhonda Dossett, who have never met in person.  Reading the book, you would never know two different people wrote it.  It is well crafted and full of humor.  The characters are a lot of fun.  You will laugh out loud and not want to put it down so you can turn the page!


I highly recommend this book.
