This is the seventh and sadly the final book in the Cajun Country series by Ellen Byron that’s been a real favorite of mine since the very beginning. But I think the author did a really amazing job of giving all my favorite friends aka characters the sendoff most fitting. I kinda like to compare it to reading the epilogue in Harry Potter. I got some leaky eyes but found myself smiling at everything as I read. It was perfect, and I just need to say, thank you Ellen Byron for doing such an awesome job with all the books and giving the characters the best closure possible!
When a favorite TV show goes off the air, I’m always the one who thinks, “Oooo reunion movie!” or “Spin off!” Who knows, maybe Ms. Byron will do something like that! I do like her Catering Hall series, but it’d never surprise me if she has some good surprises up her sleeve along the way that might include friends from Pelican, Louisiana.
My Goodreads review:
Cajun Kiss of Death: A Cajun Country Mystery by Ellen Byron
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Weddings, murder and beyond that, oh my! This book was really bittersweet especially when it came to the ending. I loved the three weddings we got to celebrate in the beginning with more things being celebrated at the end. Everything was just wrapped up really well.
I had no idea who the killer was and thought Maggie’s idea for the reveal was pretty clever. Bo must have too, because it worked out. I have to say I guessed one of the little secrets that came out at the end! 😉
Since some of the other reviews have mentioned the epilogue, I guess it’s fair game to say the series is ending with this book. I was really sad to read that last chapter and see that there’s an epilogue. But I honestly loved the epilogue as much as I did the one in Harry Potter. The author did a great job of showing us our favorites from this series and what they’d be up to twenty years down the road. Again, very bittersweet, but I’m still smiling despite having leaky eyes from reading!
I read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the publisher via NetGalley, and my opinions are my own.

Oh, so sad. I really love this series and did not realize that this was the last book. I am glad it wraps up well though. Nice review Tari and weddings?? I am intrigued.
Thanks, Carla! I was sad when I came to the epilogue, but it was so well done that I couldn’t be sad for too long. Crozat will be there forever if it’s only in the books-and our hearts. And if time was unlimited, I could read these over and over. Yep, weddings, but you won’t have to wait longer than the first chapter to find out.
