    Murder in Blue Gingham CreateSpace 2018 by Karen Sue Walker is book three in a lively cozy mystery series set in Wedding Belles Bridal, a salon located in a small Southern California beach town The owner, Max Walters, is a talented bridal gown creator consultant and a gifted amateur sleuth In the first two books of the series, Max proved she knows her way around a crime scene and can connect the dots no matter how obtuse the clues so it s no surprise that her friends expect her to help solve a murder involving a guest at the upcoming wedding of one of her best friends Since Max is at the dinner where the murder happens, it s clear to her that the guilty party must be someone else who was in attendance Her secret heartthrob, Detective Jason Cruz, is assigned to solve the murder and insists that this time, unlike the earlier two cases they worked together, she stay out of crime solving But Max can t stop herself from checking alibis, digging into backgrounds, and generally asking questions that she feels need to be answered As she and Cruz work together again, Max finds her deepening feelings for this handsome detective dashed when she finds out he has a beautiful girlfriend and worse meets her.As in prior books, in this series, Walker does a wonderful job of weaving subplots into the main one without detracting from either Her characters are well drawn and interesting One of my favorites is Max s assistant, Keiku, who is intelligent, clever, and rarely holds back on what she s thinking Just my type of gal Murder in Blue Gingham kept me turning pages as I couldn t wait to figure out if the clues she gathered resulted in solving the murder and if Detective Jason Cruz would finally return her budding affection.Overall this is a delightful romantic cozy mystery and recommended for lovers of this genre.

    A fun, quick, read Several characters to keep straight and add to the puzzle I had part of it figured out While this was not the first in the series, it works fine as a stand alone.I received an ARC and the opinions in this review are my own.

    This is the first book I ve read by this author and I wasn t disappointed It was easy to learn the characters even without reading the previous books in this series, and the story was well written to keep the reader s interest The plot is well laid out and as much as you try to guess, the murderer truly remains a mystery until the end You also get some insight on the life of the main character, Max Her friend is getting married in what could also be construed as a reunion of sorts with old college friends, and this is what the story mystery revolves around It was truly a fun read, and I encourage you to pick up a copy and give it a try It moves along quickly, and you ll have a difficult time stopping until you finally get to the end No spoilers, just read it I received an advance copy of this book to read and am giving a voluntary unbiased review.
