Some Like It Hot by K J Larsen

Cat DeLuca hadn't seen Billy for years.  He'd kissed her and they planned to marry at eight, but life had sent them in other directions.  Now he's back, pretending he's Humphrey Bogart and insisting he's a private eye like her.  It wasn't true, but he didn't deserve to die for it.

Poisoned Pen Press and Net Galley allowed me to download this ebook for review (thank you).  It will be published March 5th.  This is another in the series, so there are others you can pick up and read while you're waiting for publication.

The whole case turns into a mess.  Most things Cat looks into tend to go that way, but this one is worse than usual.  It takes all of Cat's family and friends to keep her alive and help her solve the case.  

Jewelry theft is the cause of murder in the beginning.  Billy's death was incidental.  And the earrings were even bigger trouble when they were located again.  Somehow, Marilyn Monroe still gets to men even if she is dead.

This is a cozy mystery that is a pleasant read.  Poor Cat and her boyfriend Chase don't get to spend too much time together in this story.  Maybe the next book will remedy that.

Happy reading.
