"The Bath Bombed Zombie" by R.A. Muth: Review/Giveaway

Review by Donna Caldwell

Details at the end of this post on how to enter to win a copy of the first book in the series, The Squeaky Clean Skeleton, and a link to purchase the new book.

Wedding bells are about to ring again. Will the bride celebrate her wedding day or be behind bars?

Tori Madison is smart, kind, and best friends with Hazel. They own a cleaning service called “Bubbles and Troubles.” Tori’s only concern is she hates cleaning toilets. These two best friends are always finding trouble. Or are troubles always finding them?

To Tori’s surprise and displeasure, her mother Rune announces her engagement to a hottie. Soon, Tori, Rune, and Hazel head to South Carolina for the wedding, and a much-needed vacation to rest, so they think. Unfortunately, there is trouble from day one. As soon as they arrive, the soon-to-be groom’s ex-girlfriend is making terrible accusations. That’s the first surprise in a series of humorous and shocking adventures.

Tori, Hazel, and Rune have lots of crazy adventures searching for the murder suspect, and it’s hard to believe that Rune was once a cat. They have their list of suspects in a notebook, including the knitting group. Now it’s time for Tori to turn up the heat and get busy cracking the case.

One by one they go through their list trying to find the killer and clear Tori’s mom’s name because no one wants an exchange of vows behind bars. Mom has lots to do before the wedding day with the flowers, dresses, and food. She is not going to ruin the wedding planning with a murder investigation. 

Follow them to solve a murder with lots of humor and adventures along the way that will have you laughing out loud. There is murder, a medical emergency, and an afternoon of seasickness in a town where everybody knows everything. Tori and her friends are in town for Mom’s wedding and are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

I really enjoyed all the quirky characters and storyline. I highly recommend this book for all to read and love. The mystery was fast paced and kept me guessing. It was full of surprises and had me laughing out loud. I will be reading a lot more books from this author. Enjoy!
