With her fingerprints all over the bowl and a troubled history with the victim, Jaymie suddenly finds herself at the top of the list of suspects. Did the killer intend to frame her for the murder? If so, she is ready to mix it up, because solving crimes is vintage Jaymie Leighton…
My Review: The first book in this series, A Deadly Grind, was one of my favorite debuts of 2012. (See my review here.) This one is even better.
On the 4th of July, Jaymie brings potato salad in a vintage depression glass bowl for the fireworks celebration. It's her latest acquisition and she's always excited to "break in" new pieces. Little does she know it's about to be smashed into pieces...used as a murder weapon against Kathy Cooper, Jaymie's best friend in high school turned bitter enemy, even though Jaymie never knew what soured their relationship.
In Jaymie's personal life, she and Daniel reach an understanding about their relationship, but I think she has much more chemistry with Detective Christian, so I'm very eager to see how this possible triangle plays out. She reaches some closure in regards to her fractured friendship with Kathy, but is nonetheless heartbroken by the lie that came between them.
I'm already anxiously awaiting the third book in this wonderful series, Freezer I'll Shoot (due in November) and Victoria Hamilton's brand new series, Bran New Death (A Merry Muffin Mystery), due in September!
