Publisher's Summary

With his dying breath, Bobby Lowell begs Ellison Russell, "Tell her I love her." Unable to refuse, Ellison struggles to find the girl the murdered boy loved. Too bad an epically bad blind date, a vindictive graffiti artist, and multiple trips to the emergency room keep getting in the way. Worse, a killer has Ellison in his sights, her newly rebellious daughter is missing, and there's yet another body in her hostas. Mother won't be pleased.

Now Ellison must track down not one, but two runaway teenagers, keep her promise to Bobby, and elude the killer - all before her next charity gala committee meeting.

Another body

Ellison and her daughter, Grace, have just returned from a trip to Europe intended to give mother and daughter a chance to recover from the murder of Grace’s father and several other murders. At a high school football game it has started again. Ellison has stumbled over another murder victim and she is found with blood on her hands ... and shirt.
I am loving the wonderful characters in the Country Club Murders series and there are plenty of twists and turns in this plot to keep the most committed mystery fans guessing.
A great read.

Love this series

I enjoyed the second in the series as much as the first! Love the characters, humor and 70s references. Many laugh out loud moments, such as when she threatened punishment by playing Seasons in the Sun repetitively and saying that “mother” is the only 6 letter four letter word. Such a fun series despite multiple dead bodies in Ellison’s hostas!

I enjoyed this book.

It's an easy, fun, read. Not complicated it intricate but sometimes that's exactly what I want.

Even better than the first

I love this series that takes place in the 1970's. Plenty of dry humor, and a great mystery. The narrator does a fantastic job with the various voices. Looking forward to more.

captivating story

wasn't sure about a story set in 1974 - preferring more modern settings - but this series and this book captured my interest right away, enough so that I have now bought the whole series. Makes me smile as I am transported back in time to when I was young and realize just how innocent we were then and how much new inventions have made our lives so much easier than these 'old' days.

pretty good.

Pretty good, but once the part about Donna's father came out the ending was pretty much predictable.

Wow! This book was even better than the first in the series. I was laughing out loud in places but tearing up in others. Wonderful mystery.

Just try not to die in the hostas!

With his dying breath, Bobby Lowell begs Ellison Russell, “Tell her I love her.”

Unable to refuse, Ellison struggles to find the girl the murdered boy loved. Too bad an epically bad blind date, a vindictive graffiti artist, and multiple trips to the emergency room keep getting in the way.

Worse, a killer has Ellison in his sights, her newly rebellious daughter is missing, and there’s yet another body in her hostas. Mother won’t be pleased.

Now Ellison must track down not one but two runaway teenagers, keep her promise to Bobby and elude the killer—all before her next charity gala committee meeting.

Julie Mulhern has carved her own way into our hearts, with her 1970's Country Club murder mysteries. Where flares and plaid are all the rage. And where the Country Club set have their own rules and etiquette. Just try not to die in the hostas!

Another Great read. Well plotted and written, with a great set of characters. This is one series not to be missed!

With excellent narration from Callie Beaulieu.

Didn't disappoint.

A good follow on - fast paced, sassy, enjoyable. A woman caught between many conflicts - not least of which her attraction to two very good-looking men, both of whom make her go weak at the knees. Aaah! 😍
