Kate McCall and her Bunco friends are back for another adventure in sleuthing, though admittedly Kate is the one who has the real sleuthing bug. Actually, she's pretty obsessive about it.
While I completely enjoyed this book, I did figure out who the murderer was early on, but it was fun to see how Kate would discover the truth. I enjoyed her interactions with her friends, the Bunco Babes, and the growing romance between Kate and Bill. The exchanges with her children are a hoot, just what many older folks have to endure with their all-knowing adult children. I also learned a lot about plants and loved the scenes at the Master's in Augusta, GA. There's a lot of humor in the book that kept me chuckling and smiling throughout the book. In fact, I found Shake, Murder, and Roll to be similar humor-wise to Tamar Myers' antique series that is set in the South, though it's not as outrageous and over the top in its humor and antics. Very funny overall.
I loved the book and found it to be a good read. Serenity Cove has some very interesting people (Polly is just too funny), and I find them to be realistic and fun. Overall, a great, entertaining read and I know cozy mystery readers will enjoy it. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in the series. I just hope it isn't a year in the making!
