A Catered St. Patrick's Day: A Mystery With Recipes
Gastronomical dream team sisters Bernadette and Libby Simmons, owners of A Little Taste of Heaven Catering, are thrust into a Celtic knot of malice and mayhem when a special St. Patrick's Day celebration goes awry. For most people in town, St. Paddy's Day means good food, great music, and plenty of Guinness. But when Mike Sweeney's body is discovered floating atop a vat of green beer, the celebrating comes to an abrupt end.
The prime suspect is the Simmons sisters' best customer, Bree Nottingham, but Bernie and Libby don't think so. What about Bree's brother, who is known for his hot temper and love of drink? Then there's the Corned Beef and Cabbage Club, a group with more buried history than the Emerald Isle itself. Every one of them has a motive to sing Sweeney his last Irish lullaby.
The situation is boiling over and if Bernie and Libby don't figure out what really happened to Sweeney soon, the killer could strike again.

A Catered St. Patrick's Day by Isis Crawford Realize the author has put out other books along the same lines, just different holidays and after reading 1/2 of the first page I know I will be hunting down the rest of the books to read. Being as I do bake just listening, reading about how they are handling the dough makes me think I can learn something from them by reading this book. The luck is with them, besides the 4 leaf clovers they have the kitchen witch there. I remember making them to sell at craft shows. Libby and Bernie run the bakery shop and live upstairs with their Dad. Brandon is the bar tender that covers for the morning guy cuz he's in the hospital. Til he finds Mike out back. Mike is dead and now Duncan is arrested. His aunt comes to his rescue and wants the family to find out who really did murder Mike so Duncans' name can be cleared. The family (Libby, Bernie and their dad Sean) has done investigations before because they just know everybody in town and how they are related to one another. The girls start by visiting with Duncan and he tells them his story, several different ones. They then go visit with Brandon at the bar as he's on duty to maybe run a few things past him. Their father also is following up a lead with the guy who drives the hearse. They all get leads to other sources and trace them out as well. What each of them has to go through to get the answers is sometimes too funny. The best part of this book for me was their daily routine of making and baking the bread, priceless! Good mystery story also. Can't wait to get the authors other holidays books.
