Book Description

 In the quirky, close-knit town of Dixie, Tennessee, party planner Liv McKay has a knack for throwing Southern-style soirées, from diamonds-and-denim to black tie affairs, and her best friend Di Souther mixes a mean daiquiri. While planning a Moonshine and Magnolias bash for high maintenance clients, Liv inconveniently discovers a corpse in the freezer and turns her attention from fabulous fêtes to finding a murderer. Together, Liv and Di follow a trail of sinister secrets in their sweet little town that leads them from drug smugglers to a Civil War battlefield, and just when they think they’re whistling Dixie, Liv and Di will find themselves squarely in the crosshairs of the least likely killer of all…

My Review

 Death Crashes the Party is the first book in the Liv and Di in Dixie Mystery series. This is the first book I've read that has been written by Vickie Fee.

Death Crashes the Party is a cozy mystery set in a small Southern town. I was attracted to this book because the main character is a party planner. I have planned events for years at work and as a volunteer. Author Fee successfully captured the ups and downs of party planning.

Party Planner Liv teams up with her best friend Di to solve the mystery of two murdered brothers that she discovers at a client's site while working on a 40th anniversary party. The brothers work for her father-in-law's trucking company. It seems they were involved in transporting drugs using the company trucks.

Liv's life is filled with interesting southern characters. She is happily married to Larry Joe. She has a great friendship with her friend Di. The story is quite humorous.

Good tips for party planning included. Fans of cozy mysteries will enjoy Death Crashes the Party.
