Andi’s step-mother is a real piece of work!
But is Ruby a murderer?
Andi Anna Jones, so-so travel agent/amateur sleuth, puts aside her resentment of her father’s widow and books a 60th birthday cruise to Cancun for Ruby and three friends. Never does Andi imagine the cruise will lead to the murder of a has-been lounge singer—or that Ruby will be the main suspect.
Flirting with more than danger after arriving in Mexico, Andi connects with the charming local sheriff, Manual Rodriquez. After an embarrassing night involving the sheriff, too many margaritas, and a Mariachi band, a chance to check out an eyewitness to the murder leads her to Las Vegas.
In Vegas, a mysterious meeting in the Bodies Exhibition, a body preserving in the prep-room, and an evasive owner of a dance studio, give Andi clues to help Ruby. But when Andi is mercilessly drugged and locked in a storage room, she realizes dear old step-mom isn’t the only one in jeopardy.

*I received a free ARC copy of this book which I voluntarily chose to write an honest review for.

What a great start to a new series though I must admit that I thought the book was over way too soon. We get to meet Andi as she is jerked out of a sound sleep to learn that her very colorful step-mother has been arrested for murder in Cancun while she was on her birthday cruise. Andi promised her dad she would take care of her after he passed away so she feels like she has no choice but to hop on a plane to come to her aid. What follows is a comical investigation that introduces us to some crazy characters that really keep the story flowing. There seems to be one thing happening after the other until it all snowballs into a surprising conclusion that wraps the story up quite nicely. If you enjoy cozy mysteries then You really have to give this book a shot. I really enjoyed it so it gets 4/5 stars.
