A Catered Costume Party is the 13th book in the successful cozy series about Libby and Bernie Simmons, sisters and joint owners of A Touch of Heaven Catering and Bake Shop, New York.
Crawford has some snappy one-liners, and memorable thumbnail character descriptions and her casual conversational voice lures the reader onward.
As with most cozy mysteries, the readers’ enjoyment of this genre comes from the atmosphere generated by the writer, character driven rather than plot driven, suspending reality and buying into the caper. Crawford’s inclusive style brings the reader in close; these are women we like, women we want to know better, witty women who love to laugh.
