    What happens when a bunch of amateurs try to solve a murder?   They could get killed!   Who says murder can't be fun?
   Before there was Joe and Margie, there was Joe and Jillian and there was Margie and Jack. To find out how Joe and Margie got together, read the book. To find out how Magoo entered the scene, read the book. To find out who is trying to kill Joe, read the book...
   Oh, shoot, just read the book; it's funny and cute and it may be the only romantic comedy murder mystery you'll read this year.

   Things get personal for Margie in AN INVITATION TO MURDER when her dad is charged with killing an old business partner and all the evidence points to him and him alone. Obviously it's a setup, but who would do that and why?
   Margie's hell bent on getting involved and finding the real killer; Joe's just as determined to stop her. Not because he doesn't want to find the killer, but he doesn't want Margie to end up a victim herself. As if that's not enough to deal with, who is this Christian guy that's so obsessed with Margie and determined to get her to attend their 20 year class reunion?
   Join the Kona crowd as they wing it to L.A. where they find plenty of confusion and trouble and clues and new mysteries

"I read a lot of books, many different styles, genres. This is some of the most fun you will have reading. Fell in love with Margie, Magoo and Joe right away. Excellent pacing and though you don't have to be Einstein to figure it out, it is best to read this first and then the other two so you don't spoil the ending. Looking forward to seeing it as a movie (hint, hint)! "
