Dealing with the first anniversary of her husband's death would be much easier for Whiskey Mattimoe if the newly-crowned Miss Blossom wasn't scheduled to die on the very same day. It seems everybody in Magnet Springs knew about the not-so-secret curse of the Miss Blossom pageant except for Whiskey–full-time real estate agent, part-time sleuth, long-suffering owner of Abra, ...more

This book had us on a panic search for an ugly tiara, murdered beauty pageant winners, past pageant winners, ghosts, and Abra and her beau, Norman?

As usual this witty, clever, and tightly written plot amused me and was true entertainment with an unexpected ending. The storyline crossed over from Victorian days to the current decade with using all the characters we have begun to know from Ms. Wrights' earlier novels in the series.

All this and 40+ cats. Yes, I said cats. Interesting ones. The dogs
The latest in the Whiskey Mattimoe series, this one is a little bit of a letdown from WHISKEY ON THE ROCKS. It was just as frantic, but it didn't have the same "feel" as that one. The main story has to do with some curse on a piece of property that she's been commmissioned to sell and her dog Abra is at it again, stealing the tiara from the local beauty pageant. It does have some cute moments, but overall I didn't like Whiskey as much as I did in the first book. Perhaps my expectations were too ...more
A Whiskey Mattimoe Mystery : Book 3
Whiskey is at it again; chasing Abra all around Magnet Springs that is. The book starts off with a bang, as the Afghan hound snatches Miss Blossom's hideous tiara at the local pageant and starts a whirlwind of trouble. First off, the tiara is a family heirloom that not only comes with a hefty insurance, but it's accompanied with a curse that has spanned many years. Whiskey quickly finds herself in the middle of an investigation that leads her to a haunted mansi

Recommends it for: people who like "cozies"
This is the second of the series that I have read. It is well written, but just a little too silly for my taste. It does have some entertaining moments, but not enough for me to recommend it.
This is the third book in the series. I enjoyed it, it has many laugh out loud moments. Not my favorite of the series, but still enjoyable! Looking forward to the next two books!

For sosme reason I couldn't get into this book as much as the first two. The story didn't pull my total attention so I found myself taking a while to finish it.
Unexpected surprise. After seeing this book fly of the shelf I finally decided I had to read the book. Fun, lighthearted mystery in a small town.

Great Novel, The laughs never stop from cover to close.
Very entertaining. I like the quirky characters.
