A CATERED ST. PATRICK'S DAY

KIRKUS REVIEW

The cooking and sleuthing team of sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons get involved in yet another holiday murder.

When a member of the Corned Beef and Cabbage Club drowns in a keg of green beer, the case is a natural for the doyens of A Little Taste of Heaven. Bernie’s boyfriend Brandon presides over the bar where the group of high-flying stockbrokers hang out. But it’s the wealthy aunt of club member Duncan Nottingham who hires them to get her nephew off the hook for murder. None of the club members has been popular after the market crash, but the dead man lost a great deal of money for many people, including his friends and former friends, so there’s no dearth of suspects. Between cooking and baking, the ladies swing into action with some help from their father, the former police chief. 

Sadly, the results are just as scattered and lackluster as in Crawford’s earlier entries (A Catered Thanksgiving, 2010, etc.). Even the inevitable appended recipes look uninspired.
