Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder by Mary Cunningham

Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder
Andi’s step-mother is a real piece of work! But is Ruby a murderer?

Andi Anna Jones, so-so travel agent/amateur sleuth, puts aside her resentment of her father’s widow and books a 60th birthday cruise to Cancun for Ruby and three friends. Never does Andi imagine the cruise will lead to the murder of a has-been lounge singer—or that Ruby will be the main suspect.

Flirting with more than danger after arriving in Mexico, Andi connects with the charming local sheriff, Manuel Rodriquez. After an embarrassing night involving the sheriff, too many margaritas, and a Mariachi band, a chance to check out an eyewitness to the murder leads her to Las Vegas. 

In Vegas, a mysterious meeting in the Bodies Exhibition, a body preserving in the prep-room, and an evasive owner of a dance studio, give Andi clues to help Ruby. But when Andi is mercilessly drugged and locked in a storage room, she realizes dear old step-mom isn’t the only one in jeopardy.  (Summary via Goodreads)

Margaritas, Mayhem, and Murder by Mary Cunningham is such a fun read !!  It is a GREAT start to the Andi Anna Jones Mystery series.

Margaritas, Mayhem, and Murder jumps right into the frying pan...of trouble !!  Andi gets a call in the middle of the night from her ex-step-mother , Ruby, who is on a cruise to Mexico for her birthday .... saying that she was arrested for murder !!  And Andi who made a promise to her dying father to take care of Ruby ends up flying to Mexico to help.  While trying to keep her head clear from margaritas,  and the sexy local sheriff, Andi takes it upon herself to investigate the crime.  This involves her sneaking around the cruise ship where the lounge singer her aunt is accused of killer was performing, flying to Las Vegas following up on a "lead", being drugged and left for dead......

Cunningham's writing is so ....colorful !!!  She opens up your imagination and boy is there a lot of color.....from the outfits everyone wears to the casinos and hotels and even the color of the eyes of the sheriff and his friend !!!  Not to mention that Andi is a travel agent and you know that Margaritas, Mayhem, and Murder is just the beginning of a long, fun road trip !!!  

I cannot wait for the next installment of this series to see where Andi and her ex-step-mother end up going and the trouble that lies ahead......
