Killer Getaway: A Killer Wasps Mystery by Amy Korman

The girls are going on vacation.  It's snowing and ugly outside at home so when they get an invite to go to Florida and stay (for free!), who's going to say no?

Witness Impulse and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab it now.  You might want to read the first book in this series, too.  They're fun cozy reads.

When they go out to eat and visit their friends restaurant, they're surprised to see one of the customers get ill.  Unfortunately, it's a woman with a lot of influence in town and she warns everyone away from the restaurant.  The bad seafood was sabotage but no one believes that except the friends.  There's no way to prove it.

Even worse, an old enemy from the past moves in across the street with his own restaurant.  He also has a big TV deal, a hot new girlfriend, and great financial bankers.  He intends to put them out of business.

Suddenly, their vacation turns into an investigation.  The only help their friends have is them.  Surely they can find out who's trying to make the restaurant fail.  The competition is just that.  He didn't sabotage them.  So who did?

The girls are just as ditzy as they were in the last book.  Bootsie orders all the food on the menu and eats most of it herself.  She's also watching a tennis tournament.  One of them shops until her credit cards can't handle it anymore.  One is getting even with her husband by casually dating the hot boys in Florida.  Just a normal day/life for this group.

They also make friends with an old woman there and have to try to stop an almost bootleg real estate deal.  They sure know how to relax.  What they don't realize is that one of the people in their circle of acquaintances is an enemy who will do all they can to get what they think has been stolen from them.

This is one where I didn't anticipate the ending.  I like that in a book.
