It's her thirtieth birthday, she thinks that she is cursed, and that feeling is borne out by being descended upon by her mother and Italian grandmother hassling her about her unmarried state. Then there is a murder at the strip club favored by sexagenarian landlady, and her boyfriend being sabotaged at his bank! The publisher's blurb gives hints and clues but can't begin to prepare you for all the situational and verbal humor. No spoilers here, but the investigation is so convoluted, and each suspect is so easily believable. The antics of family, friends, and the crazy landlady would be unbelievable anywhere but in NOLA.
Madeline Mrozek really brings each character alive and can snark with the best. I'm still totally amazed that she doesn't crack up narrating this author's books!

Warning: this book contains topics of witchcraft, voodoo, spells etc. That can be problematic for some, so I wanted to mention that these are a main theme.
This book is an adventure with the funnest cast of characters! Glenda becomes an honorary PI to help solve a death at a strip club, and it's truly comical. Madeline does such a wonderful job narrating & bringing all these characters to life. She had quite a task with this book & it was done perfectly. I could picture each and every character & it was such a treat to transport into this wild and funny world. This is a cozy with a twist of humor & I highly recommend it! I can't wait to see what Frankie is up to next!

This instalment was quite good. It had loads of humour involving a strip club. I would have enjoyed more story involving Bradley. I also really liked the new detective. I hope to see more of him in future stories.
The mystery involved two murders and a missing necklace. I would have liked more suspense as the process of solving the crime wasn't overly exciting.
