Marriage Can Be Murder: A Mystery Novella by Heather Haven
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Lee Alvarez may be a settled down married woman, but she's still an active detective at Private Investigations, Inc., the agency owned by her mother. Sounds normal, right?
In this continued series of the Alvarez Mysteries, Haven decided that two is better than one, so Lee's new husband, Gurn, is brought aboard. A good thing since the client in this 2nd book in the 2nd series based on the Alvarez family, seems to cooperate only with men. Lee asks the questions, and Delores De La Vega, and aging femme fatale, directs her answers to the handsome Gurn. Lee knew he'd come in handy.
Right from the first page, Lee Alvarez is the same snappy witted woman I loved throughout the Alvarez Family series. Getting married didn't change a thing except she now has two cats and one husband to help her sleuth out the truth of just who's trying to murder Delores or is it all in the has-been movie star's mind?
Heather Haven's books are most delightful when she's imbuing her characters with a smart mouth along with plain old smarts. I've enjoyed reading them all. Lucky me! I recommend the entire two series to any readers who like female sleuths with attitude solving the murders while keeping her Gucci purse and Manolo Blahnik shoes unscuffed.
You'll certainly enjoy the "Nick and Nora Charles of Silicon Valley" as Haven has described the newly-wed, crime fighting duo of Lee and Gurn.
