When bodies start stacking up, will Cassandra be one of them or just end up in jail for a murder she didn't commit.
My rating: 4 Stars
My opinion: I enjoyed this (light) cozy mystery. Although, I am, in general, not a fan of the cozy genre and think that they come off as much too sticky sweet; I love when an author can build a more substantial mystery or deeper characters. That is exactly what Ms. McMahon accomplished in A Rendezvous to Die For. This book was really inviting in her approach and writing. To boot, the characters were really down to earth and approachable. Finally, I loved the setting.
This is easily a character/setting that I could see develop into a series similar to something like MURDER SHE WROTE.

Would I recommend? : Yes, to fans of the cozy mysteries and/or lighter mysteries. If you are a fan of heavier mysteries with more intense writing, you might find this book a bit too light.
