Fatal Cajun Festival: 12/05/21

Fatal Cajun Festival

Fatal Cajun Festival by Ellen Byron and Amy Melissa Bentley (Narrator) is the fifth book in the Cajun Country mystery series. The Crozat B&B is playing host to the headliner of the Cajun Country Live! music festival. Tammy Barker was a local girl who won a national talent show that launched her career. Now she back but she has a bad history with Gaynell and seems hell bent on picking up where she left off.

Remarkably it's not Tammy who ends up dead. Instead it's her manager — electrocuted by Tammy's favorite mic. With Gaynell high on the short list of suspects, Maggie realizes she needs to find the real killer to clear her friend of suspicion.

The set up and execution of this murder and then the subsequent sleuthing reminded me of a mashup of two Midsomer Murders plots: "The Creeper" (Series 12, Episode 6) and "The Axeman Cometh" (Series 10, Episode 4). I don't mind the similarities but it did make seeing the big picture easier for me.

Book six is Murder in the Bayou Boneyard (2020).

Five stars
