Author: Lois Winston
Series: Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery #4
Synopsis (from bn.com): In this fourth installment of the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery series, Anastasia and her fellow American Woman editors are steaming mad when minutes before the opening of a consumer show, they discover half their booth usurped by Bling!, their publisher’s newest magazine. CEO Alfred Gruenwald is sporting new arm candy-rapper-turned-entrepreneur and Bling! executive editor, the first-name-only Philomena. During the consumer show, Gruenwald’s wife serves Philomena with an alienation of affection lawsuit, but Philomena doesn’t live long enough to make an appearance in court. She’s found dead days later, stuffed in the shipping case that held Anastasia’s decoupage crafts. When Gruenwald makes cash-strapped Anastasia an offer she can’t refuse, she wonders, does he really want to find Philomena’s killer or is he harboring a hidden agenda?
My thoughts: I truly, truly enjoyed this fourth book the Anastasia Pollack Crafting Mystery. What a great cozy mystery series. One of the reasons this series stands out for me as a great one is the absolutely great cast of characters. Every single character in these books are awesomely quirky and downright hilarious. This series is a true laugh out loud read! Great!
Now that being said, just a tad of what I didn’t love about this particular book. I for one felt that the end was really abrupt and just came to a quick conclusion in like a page. Boom . . . it was all done! WHAT??!?
There is a nice cliffhanger however that of course will keep me reading . . .
Anxiously awaiting the next one in the series.
A wonderful, light, laugh out loud cozy series that should be on every cozy lover’s list!
