The regulars at Mack's Bar love putting their heads together to solve a good mystery. But Mack is learning there's a big difference between barroom brain teasers and real-life murder. . .
Milwaukee bar owner Mackenzie "Mack" Dalton has a unique neurological condition that gives her extra perceptive senses, and police detective Duncan Albright is convinced Mack's abilities can be used to help catch crooks. Mack may be at pro at mixing drinks, but she's still an amateur when it comes to solving crimes--and she's not sure she should mix business with pleasure by working with a man who stirs up such strong feelings in her. At her first crime scene--a suspicious suicide--she experiences a heady cocktail of mixed sensations and emotions that make her question whether police work is right for her. But when Duncan asks her to help find a kidnapped child, she knows she has to give it a shot.

My review: Murder with a Twist by Allyson K. Abbott (Mack's Bar Mysteries Book 2)
I liked this second book in Mack's Bar Mysteries. I like how the Capone Club all get involved solving riddles and mysteries. Though a lot of them spend all their time it seems in a bar.
The main character is Mackenzie "Mack" Dalton. She owns Mack's Bar. She also has a condition that is called synesthesia. Which makes her senses cross-wired. She sees and hears differently from everyone else.
Her detective boyfriend Duncan and some of the Capone gang members are helping her to be able to learn how to use them so he can use her help solving cases. To think more like a detective also to figure out what her senses are telling her that others can't notice. Like when someone is lying, or smells at murder scenes.
Mack finds that solving things in her bar is a lot different when faced with dead bodies. She is not sure if she wants to keep helping Duncan.
I like Duncan but he seems to always want her to help him. He is a dedicated cop.
I like some of the Capone club members a lot and can see where different people come and go all the times can be easy way to add characters in the future. How different talents can help solve different problems.
I have enjoyed reading all three books in the Mack's bar mysteries and look forward to reading more of them in the future.
I bought this book from Amazon.
