Dear Librarians,

It's Jazz Fest in New Orleans and the giant puppets from the Beastmaster Theater are parading through the French Quarter. But as Carmela Bertrand and her best friend, Ava, enjoy the parade, a terrible crash echoes from Devon Dowling's antique shop. Rushing inside they find Devon collapsed with the only witness his small dog Mimi. Has he been shot? Stabbed? When the police arrive they realize he was stabbed with an ice pick. Running her own shadow investigation, Carmela works behind the scenes to catch Devon's killer.

This is a fast-paced "thrillzy" filled with drama, humor, and mischief. New Orleans is a top go-to spot so readers will also enjoy the food and landmarks in MUMBO GUMBO MURDER!
