Apparently this is a series of books with the main character named Heaven Lee. In the past she was an attorney, but did something illegal and lost her license to practice law.

Early in the story, the event planner is murdered.....but it could have been an accidental death by electricity.

Lou Jane Temple keeps it real! Not only does she use real locations, but she talks about realistic cultural events. This time it's the Kansas City's 18th and Vine Historical District dedication. Even Charlie Parker's plastic sax comes into play! Yes, Charlie Parker did have a plastic sax. You can see it at the 18th and Vine Jazz Museum.
Didn't like it at all, though I usually enjoy the "food" women mystery writers. This one, though I could not get into, although a recipe for sweet potato pecan pie did look good.
A fun, easy to read murder mystery set in Kansas City. The recipes at the beginning of each chapter are great!
Just a fun read. Love the Kansas City connection since I'm from just outside KC and know the area so well!
Good recipes included.
