Cozy Cull [9] - How to Host a Killer Party by Penny Warner

According to Merriam-Webster:

This is a (semi-)weekly giveaway.  Please spread the word, even if you've already read this week's book. 

The plan is:
  1. Each week I read one of the MANY cozy mysteries I have among my personal books.  
  2. I write a post about it. 
  3. Then I offer it in a giveaway in order to cull my "herd" of cozies... as "a means of population control."

This week I have the first book in the Party-Planner Mystery series, How to Host a Killer Party by Penny Warner (published February 2010). 

You can find my thoughts on How to Host a Killer Party here.

From Goodreads:
Don't let murder crash your party.

Presley Parker was just happy to get her party planning business off the ground. Now she's gotten the gig of the year, planning Mayor Davin Green's sumptuous "surprise" wedding for his socialite fiancée, to be held on Alcatraz.

But when the bride is found floating in the bay and the original party planner is found murdered, Presley becomes the prime suspect. If the attractive crime scene cleaner, Brad Matthews, doesn't help her tidy her reputation, she'll be exchanging her formal wear for prison stripes...
