Body on the Bayou by Ellen Byron


Body on the Bayou (Cajun Country Mystery, #2)

Book two in the Cajun Country Mystery series and I found this one to be so much better than the last one. Maybe is was because it was book one which requires the set up of the series but i just had a really hard time getting into the story. This one was much better as it starts with a bang, has lots of drama as a pregnant bride is involved, and finally ends with a big sh-bang that definitely different to say the least. Maggie is pregnant Vanessa's maid of honor which is really funny because she is marrying Rufus of all people. As the guests start arriving for the week long festivities one of V.'s horrible cousins shows up and has to stay at the Crozat B&B. This was not so bad until she was found murdered next to the bayou near a lost dog and cat that had just given birth. Vanessa demands that Maggie investigates once she becomes the prime suspect which only gets worse after another body turns up shot by her new gun. The drama had me giggling, the development is smooth, and the little details are included at the same time (such as Xander finally speaks). While the main focus is the murder mystery itself we still get to keep up with Maggie's budding romance as well as other things. Great for fans of cozy mysteries that are set in the South which adds that Southern charm to the mix.This one gets 4/5 stars.
