REVIEW: It's Your Party, Die If You Want To

It's Your Party, Die If You Want To
Author: Vickie Fee

Liv McKay is quite busy with her party planning business in this 2nd installment of the Liv and Di in Dixie Mystery series. She comes up with the best themes for her events -- Riverboat gamblers, Murder Mysteries, and even ghost hunting! But little does she know that this Halloween the murder mystery is going to be real.  When Morgan Robison's body is discovered in the cemetery, the girls are on the case once again. Robison was a wild girl, chasing married men and causing drama wherever she went. There are plenty of suspects who might have wanted her dead. Sorting through the angry wives and scorned lovers won't be easy, but Liv and Di are determined to get to the truth.

This is a very well-written mystery filled with southern charm. The main characters are best friends and delightfully fun. The plot is filled with many possible suspects, quirky supporting characters and many twists and turns. The Fall/Halloween theme was fun -- ghost-hunting divas, dead bodies in grave yards....loved it!!!

And, what's a mystery book about a party planner sleuth without some party planning tips?? At the end of the book, there are tips for planning a riverboat gambler themed party and a murder mystery dinner.

Plus for those readers who haven't read Death Crashes the Party (the 1st Liv and Di Murder Mystery) the first chapter is included at the end of the book as well. It isn't necessary to read the books in order. I followed the characters and plot  easily in this second book without having read the first. But, I will definitely be reading the other book now! The characters and southern charm made this a very enjoyable cozy mystery!
