You would think writing a short story, especially a mystery, would be very difficult thing to do. However, author Julie Mulhern did so flawlessly. She pack all of the aspects of a full sized mystery into one amazing short story.

I thought everything was going to be tied up in a nice, tidy bow when a suspect is named early on. I should have known it wouldn’t all be so easy. Mulhern did a twisty turn that took me completely by surprise!

DIAMOND GIRL has great relationships among the characters, a

Ellison Russell helps her housekeeper, Aggie, quickly solve a mystery concerning stolen jewelry when the new man in Aggie’s life, Mac, is accused of the suspicious thefts. Aggie is moving on with her life after her husband’s death from cancer, and is happy to help delve for clues to prove Mac’s innocence. The search for suspects is swiftly narrowed down and solved. Short and sweet Valentine’s Day story.

This was an enjoyable short story. It was fun to see the story told from Aggie’s perspective. The Country Club Mysteries is a great series. I can just imagine what Aggie looked like after the makeover that
Ellison Russell helped with. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

This Country Club short story concentrates on Aggie, rather than Ellison Russel. As a result, there is not much about the Country Club, no Frances Walford, no Anarchy Jones (but Mr Coffee does make several appearances!), and not a dead body in sight. That does not mean that the story is any less enjoyable than the other stories – it just has a slightly different focus.
Aggie has been mourning her dead husband (and private-eye partner) for a long time, but has now met a nice widower, who is makin

Very short story with Ellison’s maid as the narrator. It was great to find out a bit more about her and a nice tease while waiting for the next Country Club Murder book to come out.

A short, fun mystery that makes you smile.

Diamond Girl is the latest entry in Julie Mulhern’s Country Club Murders series. This short story edition revolves around Aggie Delucci, Ellison Russell’s housekeeper—think Hazel and picture Aggie. Aggie has been a friend, confidant, and the stern stuff that keeps her adopted family safe.

In this story Aggie, a widow of some years, has discovered a new fellow, Mac, who has also lost his spouse. As their romance progresses, he sends flowers regularly and Ellison and her friends have found a great

Sweet Diamond in the Rough
It's good to get to know Aggie DeLucci a little better in "Diamond Girl," the first short story in Julie Mulhern's Country Club Murder Mysteries. For those of you reading anything in the series for the first time, Aggie keeps house for series heroine Ellison Russell and she has a rather salty sense of humor. She's sort of rough around the edges in contrast to the more refined Mrs. Russell. Aggie is also a detective's widow, so she knows a thing or two about investigatin

Julie Mulhern has managed to give us a fantastic mystery in short form! It stars Aggie and her new love interest Mac who has a catering business and Aggie’s employer, Ellison Russell. There’s been an incident and it is up to Aggie & Ellison to save the day. Mulhern manages to take us on a quick adventure that gives you background info on Aggie’s life, involves you with all the characters, keeps you intrigued with the story and makes you wonder when Ellison is going t

4.5 Stars

This is the 6.5 book in the Country Club Murders series by Julie Mulhern. It is a novella and only 39 pages long.

This book kind of threw me since I am used to reading from the POV of Ellison Russell. This features her housekeeper and friend Aggie DeLucci in the main POV. Ellison is merely a secondary character.

Someone is stealing stuff and making it look like her boyfriend Mac is doing it since the only common denomiator is that he was the caterer at each event. Addie enlists Ellison’s

Short story in the Country Club series features Aggie, Ellison Russell's housekeeper.

Aggie's life outside of the Russell household is complicated. Being a widow meeting a widower is a whole new world. When said widower needs Aggie's help, Aggie turns to Ellison and together they tackle finding the thief operating in Ellison's social circle, no matter what it costs Aggie to do so.

A very quick read that has me waiting for more!

When her new boyfriend Mac gets accused of stealing from the rich women while catering their parties, Aggie steps in to prove he’s innocent.
I love that she’s got a boyfriend. She’s such a fun character.
It’s a cute little short read that gets right to the point. And part of it takes place on Valentines Day, so today was a good day to read it.

We have a new star in Kansas City! Aggie, fearless,VW driving(formerly) housekeeper to Ellison is embroiled in a short mystery of her own. While trying to help her butcher friend, who has been accused of theft, she makes a life changing discovery. This was a true joy to read.

I loved it just as much as I have loved all the books in the Country Club Murders series. And Julie Mulhern is a fabulous author with realistic characters and a brilliant setting. Seriously needs to be made into Hallmark Movies & Mysteries series!
