Every day is a holiday in Celebration Bay . . .
but unfortunately death doesn’t take a holiday.

As more and more tourists flock to Celebration Bay, New York, to enjoy their seasonal festivals, the town is in need of a professional coordinator. Enter Manhattan event planner Liv Montgomery, tired of big-city stress and looking for an idyllic spot where she and her Westie terrier, Whiskey, can put down roots. The Harvest by the Bay Festival is Liv’s first chance to prove herself, and everything from apple bobbing to pumpkin painting goes perfectly—until the body of an itinerant juggler is discovered stuffed into an antique apple press.

With a murderer on the loose, town leaders threaten to shut down the upcoming Halloween and Christmas festivals. But the town’s livelihood is at stake, and there is no way Liv is going to let that happen, even if she has to solve the murder herself. No matter how many balls she needs to keep in the air, Liv is determined to find a killer who’s rotten to the core . . .

Dollycas’s Thoughts

This was a great start to this series. We were introduced to several characters and a new mystery that connected to an old one. I was impressed with the way the author kept a great solid pace with a very interesting twist.

I will be squeezing Silent Knife into my reading schedule before reading Independence Slay (A Celebration Bay Mystery) to review for Shelley’s visit on June 25th. Independence Slay (A Celebration Bay Mystery)hits stores on June 3rd.

just you and a friend
