Sex, Lies, and Snickerdoodles by Wendy Delaney Blog tour & 2 Giveaways
Everybody’s got a secret.
A secret crush. A secret liaison. A secret recipe. And for a deadly few, a secret murder.
Port Merritt’s favorite bad boy, Russell Falco, was a seasoned veteran of secret liaisons. But after his body washes up on the shore of Merritt Bay, Deputy Coroner and human lie detector, Charmaine Digby, suspects one of those liaisons got Russell killed.
Secrets. Lies. Cookie-baking rivals. And a dead guy. Char’s on the case and is determined to find the killer . . . if the killer doesn’t find her first!

My review:Sex, Lies, and Snickerdoodles by Wendy Delaney (Working Stiffs Mysteries, #2)
The cast of characters in Working Stiffs is back again with lots of laughs, cookies, and murder.
With plenty of drama between the characters.
Charmaine Digby has not been with the Deputy Coroner office yet a month. She has been having relations with her good friend Police Detective Steve Sixkiller. Charmaine can tell when someone is lying. She is curious and goes way beyond her job into Steve's.
Steve is the homicide detective. He is a neighbor of Char's grandmother and a good friend to them. He keeps telling Char to stay out of investigating.
While on a breakfast date with Char, Steve gets called away. A body washed up on shore. He does his job. But till after the autopsy there is no case. Char decides she has to find out more about what happened. She gets into Steve's way a lot and he won't talk to her about the case.
Russell Falco is a lady's man. He gets into trouble.
Charmaine has a bunch of relatives. Her mom is a famous Actress that is broke, they are both staying with Char's grandma. Her Uncle and Aunt run a café. I love her relatives. They make the story.
Port Merritt, WA is a small town not far from Seattle.
I like how this story is different than most murder stories. That till the Autopsy report there is not a case. That the police detective does not tell anyone about the case he is working on.
