This is the sixth book in the hilarious Poppy McAllister series by Libby Klein, and I’ve laughed through every one of these awesome mysteries. The situations Poppy finds herself in are just too funny but very relatable sometimes. And Aunt Ginny…her escapades alone could fill a book, lol. I especially liked her little side story that had to do with some gummy bears she’d been getting at the health and beauty expo. She really loved those and surprisingly drove better while eating them! You’ll see when you read it.
My Goodreads review:
Beauty Expos Are Murder by Libby Klein
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you’re reading in order, you’ll recall where book five left off the minute you start reading this book. Poppy had made her decision on guys but as per her usual luck, things went a little sideways, or maybe a lot that way. I don’t want to give away any good surprises, but do yourself a favor and read these books in order if you want the most enjoyment from them.
Poppy found herself baking her usual treats and running Gia’s booth for the coffee shop at the health and beauty expo at the convention center. But her life wouldn’t be complete without a murder or two and a couple of nemeses poking their heads into her business, right? One of the said nemeses needed Poppy’s investigation help. Officer Amber actually asked her to help save her badge, and Joanne Junk made an appearance like she usually does partly to help Amber and partly as hired help.
There were a lot of things going on in the book, but what seemed to be separate murders were actually connected. Fig got his own funny little side story as did Aunt Ginny who was getting somewhat addicted to gummy bears laced with something illegal that miraculously made her drive better lol. Victory surprisingly still had her job there, and even Smitty made an appearance at his Three Stooges best nyuking it up with little Henry. Sawyer had been acting a little mysterious throughout the book, but eventually she revealed a good reason. She did always come through when her bestie needed her though.
As hanging (to me, anyway) as the last book ended, this one actually had a very nice and satisfying end to it. After the murders were figured out, there was one more issue, and it was awesome how it played out. That’s all I’m gonna say and hope I haven’t said too much! This book publishes next Tuesday, June 29, 2021. I already can’t wait for the next one!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.
