**Giveaway** Cherry Cake and a Cadaver by Susan Boles **Review**

Lily Gayle and the gang set out to find a killer after local baker Luxen Natolovich is found dead hours before the grand opening weekend at the new Bed and Breakfast in town, Midnight Dragonfly. As Lily Gayle deciphers the clues around Luxen's death she uncovers a conspiracy of lies and half truths that could very well be tied to a refugee camp in Mississippi during World War II. The deeper Lily Gayle digs, the deeper the conspiracy runs, and the closer she comes to being the killer's next victim.


You hear about a new Bed and Breakfast opening but yet it doesn't seem to be receiving a lot of publicity. With a curious mind you go check it out, maybe bring your best friend with you...when you get to the Manor, nobody seems to be around yet you find a door ajar; is that an invitation to come in? Why not? But what you discovered next is what you never expected to find and here is where the story really takes off. 

This is book two in the Lilly Gayle Lambert Series. Although I never felt lost or confused since I haven't read book one, I am going to read book one and I suggest reading book one but it isn't a requirement; at least I don't think so..but I hate reading a series out of order.

This was a fast paced read which I enjoyed. Although at times it felt like it was going too fast and needed to slow down for a minute. Although I think that is my only complaint about this book. It was well-written, cohesive, a lot of fun to read, and the mystery of it all kept me guessing until the end. 


About the Author

Susan calls McNairy County, TN her home ground even though she has moved away. It was here, at Bethel Springs Junior High School that she began her writing career with two friends. They formed their own little writers group that was so secret they were the only ones who knew it existed. She still has some of the stories they wrote carefully preserved in a loose leaf binder and tucked away for safety.
She has worked in retail management, briefly for the Census Bureau and for many years in the investment/insurance industry in the regulatory compliance arena. All of which are left brain activities. So she exercises her right brain activity with reading and writing…just to keep both sides even.
susan bolesReading has been a passion since she was very young. As a toddler, her mother read to her from her 'baby books' and her Mother tells a story about her holding one of them upside down and 'reading' by repeating the story verbatim from memory.
Death of a Wolfman is the first in the Lily Gayle Lambert mystery series. Her previously published romantic suspense novel, Fated Love, is a contemporary paranormal romantic suspense (with a twist of paranormal) set in Memphis, TN. Her first novel, Kate's Pride, is a historical women's fiction set in West Tennessee in the aftermath of the Civil War. The novel is loosely based on her own Great Grandmother and published under the pen name Renee Russell.
Life got in the way of writing for many years but now she's come back to her early love.
