Murder She Slopes by Rachel Stapleton

Murder, She Slopes (A Penning Trouble Mystery)
Cozy Mystery 2nd in Series  
Release Date - November 26, 2017  
Print Length: 214 pages  
Sirens ring. Are you listening? Near Candy Cane Lane. A Body is glistening. A murderous sight. Trubble's investigating tonight. Walking through this winter wonderland.
It's the week before Christmas and Investigative Journalist Penelope Trubble has reluctantly agreed to investigate the death of a woman at the Sleighs & Slopes Adventure Resort in the hopes of exonerating her her husband—who just happens to be Penny’s ex. But with so many suspicious characters lurking in the trees, Penelope risks being strangled by clues, Christmas lights, conjecture, and catastrophe. It doesn’t help that Penny's still a little frosty with the man accused of icing his bride, and she must prove he's no cold-blooded killer. At least there’s candy-cane cocoa, a roaring fire, and the Laurentian Mountains to savor—not to mention the hunky detective dashing through the snow after her. Helping an ex is a slippery slope, and things are going downhill fast for Penelope Trubble.

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

This is a great new addition to this series. I fell in love with Penelope during book one but this one just made it better. We get to meet jerk face the douchey ex-boyfriend after he is accused of murdering his new wife. Penelope is guilt tripped into going to help even though she really does not want to. What follows is one comical investigation as she has her "help" squad again. Things really get interesting when Cody shows up to help her much to jerk faces dismay. The characters in these stories really make all the difference. They are quite a hoot each providing their own little world to the story until they blend together into a cozy mystery that I find unable to put down. If you enjoy a cute cozy mystery that will have you cracking up this is the book for you. I really enjoyed it so I give it 4/5 stars.
