When veterinarian and amateur naturalist Jasmine Garr is shot in her yard, residents of Shell Island press caterer River Holloway into investigating the homicide. River dons her amateur sleuth cap and sets out to discover who killed her former catering customer.

Between Jasmine’s estranged cousin, a rival veterinarian, a wild animal trapper, the chicken lady, and a real estate broker, River has plenty of suspects to consider. As she peels back the layers of Jasmine’s life, dangerous secrets come to light.

Jasmine’s orphaned kitty, Iris, along with River’s cat Major, and her husband Pete help River sift through the evidence. At the same time, River recently expanded her catering business. She must service her regular catering clients, plus provide fresh baked goods for Pete’s ice cream shop.

The killer follows River’s every move relishing the thought of another victim. Time is running out. Will River solve the murder before she becomes a cold dish?

Review

Shrimply Dead was an interesting read. River is providing catering services at an awards ceremony in which one of her neighbors is up for an award. The next day, her neighbor is dead. River has assisted the sheriff's office in the past solving a crime, and feels obligated to help solve this one as well.


I particularly enjoyed the way the various characters were portrayed, and that River somehow always ended up bringing home an orphan animal every time she paid a visit to the veterinarian. It's difficult to expand one's business when trying to solve a murder and take care of the neighborhood animals at the same time.


There's a point in the book when you literally cannot trust anyone that River comes in contact with, yet it all works out in the end.
