Liv McKay is a party planner with a full plate of activities coming up that need planning. She has not only a riverboat gambler themed engagement party and a murder mystery dinner for charity but has been asked to babysit the local celebrity ghost hunting diva at the annual businesswomen’s retreat.
When one of the older ladies at the retreat go missing everyone pitches in to help find her but unfortunately what they find is the body of Morgan Robison was the local party girl rumored to have a thing for the married men in the town. With no shortage of suspects Liv finds herself jumping in to help follow the clues to who killed Morgan.
It’s Your Party, Die If You Want To is a great little cozy mystery set in a small town where everyone knows everyone else and their business along with a main character who certainly had an interesting career. The fall/Halloween vibe all throughout the book was also a nice added touch at this time of year.
I really enjoyed reading about this little town full of creative characters all throughout the story. I didn’t realize that this is also the second in a series with these characters but for the most part you won’t notice that in the story other than a couple of small mentions at past events and it’s fine as a standalone novel.
Overall, a lovely little cozy fall mystery with a bit of laughs, some mystery and a whole lot of Halloween small town fun all in one.
I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
