Review: Engaged in Murder (A Perfect Proposals Mystery #1) by Nancy J. Parra

There’s no planning for murder…

Event planner Pepper Pomeroy is making the most of her current unemployment by arranging a surprise for her sister, Felicity. Warren, Felicity’s boyfriend, plans to lure his lovely lady into a private jet, propose, and whisk her away on a romantic vacation. He just needs Pepper to handle all the fine details in order to make it the perfect proposal—and it is. Everything goes so well when Warren pops the question that he suggests Pepper do this sort of thing professionally.

But before she can get her new business off the ground, there are some disturbing questions. Like who’s the dead guy Pepper finds in the ladies’ room of the jet hangar? Is it possible Felicity’s high-flying fiancé has been hiding more than the engagement ring? Pepper’s not married to the idea of having a criminal in the family, so in order to protect her sister, she takes off in pursuit of a killer.

*~*~*~*~* Review *~*~*~*~*

I love Nancy J. Parra.  She's such an incredible author with so much talent!  I couldn't wait to get my hands on this first book of a brand new series.  And after reading it, I cannot wait for whatever she has in store for us next :)  

This feel good, whimsically romantic whodunnit mystery was smart, fun and unique.  From start to finish, the characters were easy to love, the setting was cozy and the story itself was very well written.  I enjoyed the mystery, as it kept me guessing, and I absolutely loved Pepper.  She was quite the ambitious heroine!  

It's a very promising start to Ms. Parra's new series, and I'm eager to see what happens with Pepper and this cast of characters.  It's going to be an exciting ride! :) 

Rating: 4.5 stars

I received a paperback copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  All conclusions reached are my own.
