I'm just thrilled to have stumbled upon another good review of
Blood and Groom! This one appeared on the New Mystery Reader website.
Blood and Groom by Jill Edmondson
Publisher: Dundurn Press ISBN: 978-1-55488-430-8

Retired rock singer turned private investigator Sasha Jackson finds herself employed by a nasty woman who owns an art gallery. This woman wants Sasha to find out who killed her ex fiancé to clear her own name of suspicion that seems to follow her around.
Sasha starts her investigation with questions to all the people who knew the groom and they seem to mostly favor the art gallery owner, Christine Arvisais, as the killer. But, she has an alibi.
The investigation leads Sasha deeper into the lives of the family and friends of the deceased that bring complications into the mix and danger. And she then learns of another ex fiancé dying and the weirdness that goes with it. Her investigation takes a new direction and she is soon on the track of a killer.
This is an investigator with a different background to hold the attention of any mystery reader looking for something a little different. A private investigator with a second job on a phone sex line as extra trappings will show the reader how she survives until her new business takes off.
Recommended for the mystery fan who likes those touches of reality that bring true life into their world. Talented author Jill Edmondson has crafted a set of intriguing characters set in a background where the raw edges of moneyed life meets the gritty reality of survival of poverty.
