Review; Fatal Cajun Festival: A Cajun Country Mystery (Cajun Country Mystery #5) by Ellen Byron
Last year I was fortunate enough that I recieved an ARC of the cosy mystery Fatal Cajun Festival: A Cajun Country Mystery (Cajun Country Mystery #5) by Ellen Byron through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards and today I'll post my review.
Description from Goodreads
USA Today bestselling and award-winning author Ellen Byron cranks it up to eleven in the fifth fast and funny Cajun Country mystery.
Louisiana B&B owner Maggie Crozat kicks up her heels at a country music festival--but she'll have one foot in the grave if she can't bring the killer of a diva's hanger-on to heel.
Grab your tickets for Cajun Country Live!, the pickers' and crooners' answer to the legendary New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Maggie Crozat, proprietor of the Crozat Plantation B&B, plans to be in the cheering section when her friend Gaynell Bourgeois takes the stage with her band, Gaynell and the Gator Girls.
The festival's headliner, native daughter Tammy Barker, rocketed to stardom on a TV singing competition. She has the voice of an angel...and the personality of a devilish diva. But Maggie learns that this tiny terror carries a grudge against Gaynell. She's already sabotaged the Gator Girls' JazzFest audition. When a member of Tammy's entourage is murdered at the festival, Tammy makes sure Gaynell is number one on the suspect list.
Gaynell has plenty of company on that list--including every one of Tammy's musicians. Posing as a groupie, Maggie infiltrates Tammy's band and will have to hit all the right notes to clear her friend's name.
My Thoughts on the BookFatal Cajun Festival was a fun and entertaining cosy mystery. I loved several of the characters, including Maggie's grandmother, though I can't say I liked Tammy too much because of her bullying and "mean girl"-tendencies. Another thing that I really loved, was the Louisiana setting, with a hint or two of New Orleans flair, in addition to the mix of French and Cajun patois.
