Murder in the Bayou Boneyard: 01/28/22

Murder in the Bayou Boneyard

Murder in the Bayou Boneyard is the sixth in the Cajun Country mystery series. Halloween is rapidly approaching and the Crozat B&B is busy with Halloween preparations. This year Pelican is hosting a Pelican's Spooky Past to bring in off season guests to the five plantation based B&Bs. Things are going well until the sightings of a rougarou start spooking the guests.

The Crozat's, though, have a family problem of epic proportions. A long lost Canadian cousin has come to work for them and she and her family aren't what they expected. They're rude and spoiled and have laid claim to Maggie's art studio. When the cousin ends up dead, things get even worse for Maggie and her family.

The murder mystery itself, including who did it and why, was a pretty easy puzzle for me to sort out. That said, I liked how it was tied to the time and place — Halloween and the Dupois estate and cemetery.

On the personal front it was fun to see Maggie and Bo planning their wedding.

The seventh book is Cajun Kiss of Death which released in August 2021.
