The Wrong Drawers by Misty Simon

Review by Dawn Dowdle 

Ivy Morris is unsure of this in-home demonstration party her best friend Bella is having.  She offered to help just to get out of the house.  Ever since her dad came to visit, she can't get much time to herself, or for her and her hunky boyfriend Ben.  When she sees the cookies she is to decorate, she begins to understand the type of demonstration they'll be having. 

Not long after she speaks bad of Tarrin to Bella, Tarrin is found murdered, and Ivy was the last one to see her alive.  So, she is the prime suspect.  To make matters worse, Bella refuses to talk to Ivy for some time after the murder.  And her dad refuses to leave town until she is cleared. 

Ivy is determined to clear her name, if for no other reason than to get her dad to leave town so she and Ben can have some time together.  Then strange things begin to happen.  Ivy's store The Masked Shoppe is broken into.  Ivy is attacked and left in the closet.  She gets packages delivered that she didn't order. 

Can she unravel the mystery of who killed Tarrin and what that has to do with her without putting herself in any more danger? 

I really like Ivy.  She is such a enjoyable character.  There is a lot of humor in the book.  One thing I really appreciate is that even with the questionable subject matter, the author keeps the book to a PG-13 rating.   

I can't wait until the next book publishes in this wonderful cozy series.  I highly recommend this book.
