The Corpse With The Emerald Thumb
by Cathy Ace
(A Cait Morgan Mystery)
3rd in Series
Publisher: TouchWood Editions (April 15, 2014)
Paperback: 240 pages
Criminologist and foodie Cait Morgan was looking forward to her dream vacation in Mexico with her boyfriend Bud Anderson. She wasn’t anticipating a fresh corpse on the floor of a local florist’s shop, and she definitely wasn’t expecting Bud to become the prime suspect.
With Bud’s freedom, and maybe even his life, at stake, Cait has to fight the clock to work out which member of the small community living in the seemingly idyllic municipality of Punta de las Rocas might have killed the locally respected florist, and why. Needing to investigate under the watchful gaze of the local police, Cait has to keep her relationship with Bud a secret, and she soon discovers she’s not the only one with something to hide. Peeling back layers of deceit to reveal even more puzzles, Cait struggles with a creeping sense of unreality, desperate to save Bud . . . and, ultimately, herself.
In the third book in the beloved Cait Morgan Mysteries, The Corpse with the Emerald Thumb, travel to the idyllic Mexican countryside as Cait Morgan works against the clock to clear her wrongly accused partner of murder.

My Review:The Corpse With The Emerald Thumb (Cait Morgan #3) by Cathy Ace
This is the third Cait Morgan mystery. The second one I have read. I did guess who the killer was earlier on but had no idea about all of the secrets that were revealed. Cait and Bud go on vacation to Mexico together. While Bud is gone to get some supplies and flowers he comes across a murder. Bud is arrested for her murder.
Bud refuses to say anything after yelling something for Cait to hear. So the cops have no idea on him even what country he is from.
I like Cait Morgan. She is smart, remembers everything she sees. She saw Bud go into the flower shop and no one else who had gone in and out right before Bud. Cait cleans out where they were staying and took all of Bud's stuff. As Bud's old partner Jack told her too.
Cait is now staying in a different place and her arrival looks completely different time. The local chief of police recognize's Cait from reading all her books and asks her to help him figure out who the killer he has behind bars is.
I really like the characters of this story. We really don't get to see much of Bud in this story.
Setting is a small town in Mexico that has a tourist town. Lots of tequila information in book. As I don't drink it was interesting.
The pace was easy going. Cait does a good job trying to figure out who the killer was while everyone else was sure Bud was guilty.
I was given this ebook to read and in return agree to give an honest review and be part of this blog tour.
