Mardi Gras Murder
by Ellen Byron
A torrential rain hits the small town of Pelican, Louisiana. After the flood waters recede, a stranger’s dead body is discovered near the Crozat Plantation B&B. Maggie Crozat is determined to find the stranger’s identity and who is responsible for his death. Since it is Mardi Gras season, the town has a lot happening. As the town prepares for the local pageant and the opening of a Louisiana Orphan Train exhibit, Maggie attempts to solve the mystery of the stranger’s death.
The 4th book in the Cajun Country mystery series by Ellen Byron. This is the first book in the series that I have read, but was easy to read as a standalone.
Realistic and quirky characters. Intriguing mystery. Inviting small Southern town setting. A light and easy cozy mystery. A fun read that includes a lot information about a favorite season in Louisiana, Mardi Gras.
I received a digital copy of this book from Crooked Lane Books and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
