My least favourite of the four books, but still an excellent read!

Full review:
As the second installment in the Molly Forrester series, Killer Cocktail explores the death of Lisbet McCandless, Tricia's soon to be sister-in-law. Molly Forrester is back to her sleuthing ways as she promises Tricia she will help solve the mystery and find the person responsible.

Molly is an advice columnist for Zeitgeist magazine who yearns for a career as an investigative journalist. She's works for her second boss, Eileen, who is worse than her previous boss and only adds to her desire to wo
The reviews printed on the jacket of the book compare Molly Forrester (the protagonist) to Carrie Bradshaw, and claim that this book will please Sex and the City fans. Well... there are some similarities, but Sex and the City this is not.

Molly lives in Manhattan, wears designer clothes and shoes exclusively, and goes out to the trendiest NYC restaurants, all on a advice columnists salary. Her friends Tricia and Cassady are equally as trendy. Imagine Tricia in the role of Charlotte, in that she i

Another interesting outing for Zeitgeist advice columnist cum investigator Molly Forrester when the the bride-to-be at a swanky Southampton engagement party is murdered. Molly gets into trouble with an unappreciative Suffolk Co. detective, with NYC detective Kyle Edwards (who figured prominently in Killer Heels) and, most troubling, with her dear friend Tricia Vincent whose hapless brother appears to be Suspect #1 in his fiancee's demise. The usual sorts of NYC sights and fashions prevail as Mol ...more

Sheryl J. Anderson - Killer Cocktail
St. Martin's Paperbacks, 2006

Anderson dips her toes into the world of murder-mystery fiction, but fails to stand out or make any sort of a splash. Molly Forrester has an average voice and Anderson has her do average things for a mystery novel. The one high point of the novel is its smooth and light nature. Anderson creates an easily readable novel that is perfect for reading a chapter, then placing it down for a quick swim in the ocean. Anderson would have ben
Molly goes to her friend's brother's engagement party and along with dinner finds a dead body! Just like Mary's character!!! Of course when the fiancee turns up dead the logical suspect is Trisha's brother. She turns to Molly for help and wants her to find out who really killed her future sister-in-law.

I love the descriptions of their outfits and shoes!! I had one person pegged for the murder and at one point they do suspect this person. Even so, there was still more work to do before the real m
An advice columnist and her 2 NY City girlfriends trying to be the Sex and the City Girls. Between fashion, shoes, and drinking bouts, Molly tries to solve a murder involving her friend's influential family. This gets her in trouble with her cop boyfriend and the whole thing just didn't work for me.
Fun easy to read book. Much like Sophia Kinsella books but with murder mystery and the girls are Americans. Good beach book
Another good read in this series but make sure and start with the first book Killer Heels.
Another yummy Sheryl Anderson book.
Super fun and an easy read!
