Can You Start This Series in the Middle?
Yes. I haven’t read the series in order. And even though Carmela’s personal life is a secondary storyline, it isn’t hard to catch up. I always feel like I get up to speed pretty quickly.
If You Like…
Kate Dyer-Seeley’s Rose City Mystery Series, you’ll like this book.
This is an entertaining book if you like mysteries that are heavy on the locational charm. You get lots of details and stories about life in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. Carmela is a protagonist determined to get to the bottom of things, even at the expense of all else. If you like other books in this series, this one stays true to form.
Thanks so much for your kind words about GLITTER BOMB. Carmela and her sidekick Ava are two zany and interesting characters. Laura and I are glad you enjoy them. xo Terrie
