Item description for The Saucy Lucy Murders (The Saucy Lucy series) by Cindy Keen Reynders...
Hometown and family beckon Lexie when she can no longer tolerate her husband's wandering eye. Bereft, she moves with her teenage daughter Eva back to Moose Creek Junction, Wyoming, to be near her sister Lucy and open a business---The Saucy Lucy Caf. Lexie's sister is a churchgoing woman who believes her sister must remarry in order to enter the kingdom of heaven, and suddenly, Lexie finds herself back in the dating pool. The trouble is, all of her dates wind up at Stiffwell's Funeral Parlor---dead. Gossiping townspeople begin to mistrust the sisters while caf customers and eligible men dwindle. Business is down the toilet and, according to Lexie, the police simply aren't getting the job done. She declares it's time to intervene.

Now, THIS was a fun read! Feb 14, 2008
A recent divorcee with a church-loving sister open a cafe together in a town with the unlikely name of Moose Creek Junction. Apparently, men are just dying to date Lexie, because they all end up customers of the appropriately named Stiffwell Funeral Parlor.
This is a wonderful mystery with lots of laugh-out-loud moments, clever dialogue and characters to die for!!
Can these unlikely sisters slueths solve the crimes and save the cafe?
You could well imagine this book as a movie. It's a delightful read that should not be missed.
Very Fun Read Dec 10, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. The characters were hilarious... I caught myself laughing out loud more than once at the situations the sisters get themselves into. It was a lot of fun and worth the read. :)
lighthearted amusing amateur sleuth Dec 8, 2007
Lexie Lightfoot has had it with her womanizing husband Dan. Disgusted with Dan's inability to not cheat, Lexie leaves him and accompanied by their teenage daughter Eva returns to her hometown, Moose Creek Junction, Wyoming where her married sister Lucy lives. She opens up The Saucy Lucy Café.
However Lucy turns out to not be saucy; instead she is a faithful churchgoing mother of Carl and spouse of Otis. Lucy insists Lexie must remarry or else she will not be allowed in the kingdom of heaven. Thus Lucy begins setting up dates for her reluctant sister. However, every man who goes out with Lexie ends up dead; the second date is always held at Stiffwell's Funeral Parlor. As the townsfolk fear the siblings are killers, Detective Gabe Stevenson investigates while Lucy's husband, sheriff Otis Parnell tells them to stay out of his inquiry. Lexie, seeing her reputation and her business tanking, ignores both law enforcement officials' warnings as she distrusts both cops and begins sleuthing, not understanding the danger she places herself and her partner in crime her sister Lucy in.
This lighthearted amusing amateur sleuth tale is fun to read as the sisters ignore law enforcement to investigate who is killing Lexie's dates. The key to this enjoyable whodunit is that a potential romance between Lexie and Gabe never occurs and this never intrudes; not because he fears a second date, but instead the big tough detective is a wuss when it comes to women. The story line never takes itself seriously even when the heroine is in danger as Cindy Keen Reynders provides fans with an enjoyable frolic filled with puns like Stiffwell and strong characters.
