UNDERTAKING IRENE by Pamela Burford
Cozy Mystery – 250 Pages
Jane Delaney does things her paying customers can’t do, don’t want to do, don’t want to be seen doing, can’t bring themselves to do, and/or don’t want it to be known they’d paid someone to do. To dead people. Life gets complicated for Jane and her Death Diva business when she’s hired to liberate a gaudy mermaid brooch from the corpse during a wake. Well, a girl’s got to make a living, and this assignment pays better than scattering ashes, placing flowers on graves, or bawling her eyes out as a hired mourner. Unfortunately for Jane, someone else is just as eager to get his hands on that brooch, and he’s even sneakier than she is. Just when she thinks her biggest problem is grand theft mermaid, things take a murderous turn. But hey, when you’ve teamed up with a neurotic seven-pound poodle named Sexy Beast, how can you lose?
Pamela Burford is the best-selling author of 15 works of mystery, contemporary romance, and romantic suspense. She has received four RITA and Romantic Times Reviewers Choice Award nominations and is a frequent speaker at writers’ conferences and workshops. Her books have sold millions of copies, received outstanding reviews, and been translated into more than a dozen languages. Pamela is the founder and past president of Long Island Romance Writers, a chapter of Romance Writers of America. Fun fact: her twin sister Patricia Ryan, a.k.a. P.B. Ryan, is also a published novelist
This is a book that reads easy and quick – because it is so much fun. Definitely gets the award for “Most Unusual Profession In A Cozy”. Jane does anything regarding a funeral that you don’t want to do yourself. Don’t want to get caught doing yourself is more like it. LOL Her very first job was stuffing the ashes of the departed into shotgun shells. Some of the things are so hysterical and I won’t spoil it by telling you – but think what you would like to be your ‘parting shot’, good or bad, as it were. The victim in this book is Jane’s best customer so carrying on in this profession may be more difficult in future books. The ending is one that keeps on giving – it’s not over til it’s over! I hope Martin is along for the ride in book 2, and I can’t wait for it because this one is definitely ♥♥♥♥♥
