She is "Iced"
Julienne has her ideal job as an event planner at a prestigious resort. During a luncheon event she coordinated, a renowned celebrity pastor is killed next to the buffet. All eyes turn to her as the suspect. If she wants to stay out of jail or even keep her job, Julienne needs all the help she can get to solve the crime.
She has her work cut out for her with a vengeful high school rival now reporter, the public demanding she be fired, plus family who knows what's best for her, and a boyfriend who doesn't understand her. She turns to friends and a new ally to uncover who wanted to put the pastor on ice.
Julienne goes undercover and investigates a local swingers group as she follows the trail of clues before they go cold. Can she gather enough suspects and motives to convince the police to widen their investigation? Can she do it before the killer sets his murderous sights on her? Will her personal life ever be as simple as unveiling a murderer?
I found this book to be a fun, charming, fast, cozy mystery of a read. It was so easy to read this book. Everything from the storyline to the characters were great. A nice start to this series. I look forward to reading the next book.
The first word I would use to describe Julienne is "sensible". There is nothing wrong with this quality. Yet, you could say that Julienne does not have much excitement in her life. Well that is until the murder of Pastor Tom.
Julienne investigating the murder to clear her name with the help of Felicia and Mason had me instantly thinking of Nancy Drew and her friends. However, Julienne is the earlier Nancy before she honed her skills and became really good at solving mysteries. The love interest between Julienne and Mason was sweet. Mason is a gentleman but at the same time the ways he would comfort Julienne or kiss her cheek had me swooning. Readers will be pleased with this book.
