When Abby McCree suddenly inherits her favorite relative's property in small town Snowberry Creek, Washington, she soon realizes that the ramshackle home comes with strings attached--one of which is tied to a dead body!

After a rough divorce, Abby McCree only wants to stitch up her life and move on. But other loose ends appear after her elderly Aunt Sybil passes away, leaving Abby to tend to a rundown estate, complete with a slobbery Mastiff of questionable pedigree and a sexy tenant who growls more than the dog. As Abby gets drawn into a tight-knit quilting guild, she makes a twisted discovery--Aunt Sybil's only known rival is buried in her backyard!

Despite what local detectives say, Abby refuses to accept that her beloved aunt had anything to do with the murder. While navigating a busy social calendar and rediscovering the art of quilting, she launches an investigation of her own to clear Aunt Sybil's name and catch the true culprit. The incriminating clues roll in, yet Abby can't help but wonder--can she survive her new responsibilities in Snowberry Creek and still manage to patch together a killer's deadly pattern without becoming the next victim?

Death by Committee is the first book in the Abbey Mcree mystery and I found it to be an impressive debut in the series! I devoured this book. It’s such a fun mystery with awesome characters and an engaging mystery. There’s even a blooming romance! If you are looking for a new cozy mystery series to try I recommend this book. The second one will be out on August 27th and I am so excited to read it (the cover is super cute too). 

In this book readers will meet Abbey, Tripp, and the ladies of the quilting guild. I don’t know if this book will revolve around a quilting theme but I thought it was cute and I have never read one with it before. Anyway, when we meet Abbey we find her taking over her late aunts home and possessions as she passed away. Unfortunately, not only does she have to be saddened that one of her favorite people has passed but she has to deal with a murder that may have taken place in her back yard…

Overall, I loved this one! Abbey is a great character and I love how she and Tripp are developing a close romantic relationship. I don’t think this will be the kind of series where the love lives of the characters go on. and on. and on. I think readers will love the mystery as well. The “who-dun-it” is certainly a conundrum! 

Fun Fact 
This book takes place in a small town called Snowberry Creek and when I was going through the authors other novels (which is something I always do when I find a new author that I enjoy) I saw that she has another series that takes place here. The series is titled Snowberry Creek but instead of being a mystery series it’s actually a ROMANCE series. You can find it here if you are interested ➜ https://www.goodreads.com/series/9093…
