Green Living Can Be Deadly by Staci McLaughlin

Dana was excited to be at the Green Living Festival.  It was the first one ever and it was hard work organizing it but she had succeeded.  Now if the fair was well attended, it would all be worth it.  It was also nice to see a schoolmate from the past right next to her.  Some catch up chat would be fun.  But before they share more than a few words, Wendy is asleep permanently.  Who would kill someone during a festival?  And why?

Kensington Books sent me an ARC of this book for review (thank you).  It will be published in February, so mark it down on your TBR list.

This cozy mystery is well paced and interesting.   You'll learn about living green, carbon footprints, and other healthy options.  You'll also find out that Wendy was taking money but not using it for the quoted purpose.  Who can be angry enough at her for that to kill her?

There's a light romance beginning in this story and that made it even more enjoyable to read.  As more people turn up dead, Dana presses on with her investigation.  The cops discourage her, but she doesn't listen.  One thing she should have considered is that once you murder one person, it's much easier to kill the next...

I found this to be a light read with lots of action and I enjoyed it.  Why don't you give it a try?
