Mysterious Saturday Review: Engaged in Murder

Pepper lost her job due to downsizing, so after she helps her sister's boyfriend plan the perfect proposal, Warren tells her she should open her own business for boyfriends everywhere.  After some thought, Pepper thinks it's a great idea; she loves planning parties and making other people happy.

Unfortunately, finding a body in the bathroom at the airport during her sister's proposal weighs on her mind. The police believe that Warren could be guilty of murder. After a few moments of doubt, Pepper believes in his innocence.

She's too busy planning her new business, her sister's engagement party, and trying to solve a murder to waste any time crying over the end of her long term relationship. She wants someone to love her the way Warren loves her sister - which is why she won't rest until the real murderer is caught.
My Thoughts: A great start to a new cozy mystery series. I really liked Pepper and her perspective on life. I really liked Felicity and Warren.  I like how her sister's happy relationship made her take a long hard look at her own relationship to discover what's missing. I liked her zest for life and her ability to throw herself into a new business. I loved reading about the details of her parties and how she tries to make the couple have the perfect moment. She's sweet, smart, and creative - which makes for a winning combination as a heroine.  I'm looking forward to reading more about her and her new adventure as a business woman - not to mention a new potential romance.
