Wreath of Deception by Mary Ellen Hughes

Review by Dawn Dowdle 

Jo McAllister is opening Jo's Craft Corner.  She was recently widowed and her best friend Carrie has helped her getting the store ready to open.  She is also helping her run the store.  The grand opening goes great except for Cuddles the Clown.  Every time Jo sees him he is grumbling.  By the end of the day she is ready to throttle him.  But instead she pays him.  Last she sees him he is going to the back room to change. 

Later that night after celebrating with Carrie and her family, Jo stops by the store.  Unfortunately she finds Cuddles the Clown whom she hired dead in her store room.  Jo becomes the prime suspect. 

The gals in her craft classes and Carrie help her set out to clear her name.  Carrie's son Charlie is a great help as well. 

Who is feeing the police lieutenant information about Jo's past and encouraging them to look at her as the prime suspect?  Can Jo find the real killer before the killer gets to her? 

I really enjoyed this book.  I've never read anything else by this author, but this will not be the last.  I can't wait until the next book is out in this series. 

Jo is such a likeable character.  Her relationship with her friend Carrie is great, too.  I like the craft store setting in the small town.  Really lends itself to this fast reading cozy.  I highly recommend this book.
