Reviewed by Laura Hinds


Library director Amy Webber and her fiancé, dancer Richard Muir are soon to be married. Kurt Kendrick hosts a party celebrating the upcoming marriage and the cast of characters at the event include the uninvited Oscar Salvaggio and his assistant. Oscar and Kurt are rivals in the art dealing industry.

When Richard and Amy come across Salvaggio’s body, Kurt becomes the prime suspect. Although he is no angel, Amy doesn’t believe he killed the man. Therefore, despite the flurry of wedding preparations still to be done Amy along with her best friend Sunny and her Aunt Lydia launch their own investigation to try to solve the crime.

Packed with enough twists and turns to keep even the most avid cozy mystery reader guessing, “A Deadly Edition” is an engaging read. I have enjoyed getting to know each of the characters over the course of the five books in the series.

If you enjoy a good mystery with likable characters, romance, and more than a touch of humor, you will love this book. It is not necessary to have read the previous four books, but I suspect that true cozy fans will have already done so, or will want to after reading this book.

Highly recommended.
