Murder Unmentionable is the first book in the Sweet Nothings Lingerie Mystery series by Meg London. It could very well be a revealing series.

Emma Taylor has broken off her relationship with Guy Morgan and has returned to her hometown of Paris, TN to help her Aunt Arabella to renovate her lingerie shop, Sweet Nothings. As Emma and Brian, who manages the hardware across the street, are beginning to start the renovations in walks Guy wanting to patch things up with Emma. Emma has no intentions of picking back up with Guy, but does agree to have dinner with him. That evening, as she enters the restaurant, she sees him with Nikki, one of the reason she broke up with him in the first place. She promptly leaves without being seen. But the next morning Guy's body is found on the floor in Sweet Nothings with severe head trauma. Then when the police arrive and the detective, Chuck Reilly, is an old boyfriend that Emma dumped in high school. He is one to carry a grudge, so he would like to put Emma in jail and throw away the key.

So with the help of school days friend, Liz, and Brian they set out to find the killer.

The book is loaded with wonderful characters, that to varying degrees help with the sleuthing. There's Sylvia who used to be a bra-fitter at Macy's and totes along her oxygen tank while having her cigarettes. Angel who runs Angel Cuts, who just might be a suspect. Another possible suspect is Deidre Porter who has married into the wealthy Porter family and might be living beyond her means.

Of course I can't forget Aunt Arabella and the two men who are seeking her favor. Then there is Pierre, Aunt Arabella's French Bulldog, who is just adorable. I do think that Pierre needs to give Brian a butt bite to wake Brian up about showing a little more interesting Emma.

Definitely looking forward to the next book.
