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

Flirting with more than danger after arriving in Mexico, Andi connects with charming local sheriff, Manual Gonzales. An embarrassing night involving the sheriff, too many margaritas, and a Mariachi band, can't quell her determination to clear the name of her ex-stepmother.

While gathering clues and interviewing witnesses, however, she suspects dear old step-mom isn't the only one in jeopardy.

This book is ok. I didn’t really like the characters. It took a while to get into it. It’s not very believable. #MargaritasMayhem&Murder #NetGalley

Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder is a fun if slightly flawed cozy mystery. Travel agent Andi Anna Jones’ life gets thrown for a loop when she receives a phone call from Ruby, her ex- mother-in-law. Ruby is in Mexican jail and accused of murder. Andi, reluctantly, agrees to help, and her investigation has her globe trotting to Cancun and Las Vegas, getting into trouble and sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong. You know, everything you’d expect from a cozy mystery. The book features a fun cast of characters and decent storyline. So why did I say flawed? Well, I can’t go into detail without spoilers, but there were a few inconsistencies in procedures that force a bit more suspension of disbelief than normally necessary in a cozy mystery. That being said, I still enjoyed the story and would check out future books in the series. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4. Thanks to The Wild Rose Press, Inc. and NetGalley for the chance to read and review an eARC of Margaritas, Mayhem & Murder.

Kindle Copy for Review from NetGalley and The Wild Rose Press, Inc.

I received a free, advance copy of this book and this is my unbiased and voluntary review.

A cruise goes deadly wrong. .

Andi books a 60th birthday cruise for her ex stepmom and friends she didn’t expect a phone call one morning from her ex stepmom being held in Mexico for murder. Seems she was the last one to see the cruise lounge singer before he ended up dead.

Should she leave her annoying ex stepmom to the demise of the Mexican police or find out what is going on and make a trip there? It’s a promising new series with potential.

Entertaining and engaging cozy mystery. A cruise, Cancun, Las Vegas and a body museum (yuck, does it really exist?) all add to the fun. Andi Anna is a delight Her ex-stepmother is not. What a character! A smidgeon of romance also occurs. I am eager to read the next one. Nice, light reading. Thanks to the publisher for providing a copy via NetGalley.

Have Agency, will travel.
Laugh your sox off reading this hilarious cozy mystery with a side of romance! Andi Anna Jones is a travel agent in Miami and Ruby the outrageous is her father's widow. Andi is stuck with Ruby's problems relating to a murder charge on ship because dad had commissioned her to care for Ruby (Andi's sister has a new baby). And then there's Sheriff Gonzalez of Cancun! And a fact finding trip to Vegas! A great reality escape read!
I requested and received a free e-book copy from The Wild Rose Press, Inc via NetGalley. Thank you!
