My apologies for a lack of picture. Having wordpress issues right now.
As with all the Ever After, the fact that this is a retelling of fairy tales is the biggest clue. From there its a fun ride to piece together the whodunit with the who, what, where, how, and why! The clues are there to figure it out and there was even an element of surprise that popped up that I enjoyed seeing.
The author was a little more preachy in this book than I have read in the others. It has more of a classic Grace Livingston Hill feel, which is a compliment to the author since that would fit this timeline well.
I listened to the audio version of this and have really been appreciating the talented Christa DelSorbo. Recommend for a pleasure weekend read and don’t forget to check out all the books in the Ever After series. I’ve been really looking forward to the next one I get to read.
My eldest son, who is 13, and I have really been enjoying our time together listening to these audiobooks.

Would you like a shot of… death with that, sir?
Josephine Jacobs was just doing her job, serving at an exclusive party, so why is she now being accused of shooting TG Taggert?
At a party full of suspects in the murder of Taggert, Josie served the food giant everything but an eternally “parting shot.” Who really killed TG Taggert? His wife? His son, Jack? What about Harper Davis? Rumor has it, she was having an affair with him—motive for her or Taggert’s wife! The list of those who seemed to hate him keeps growing, including a chemist and a chef!
With her long-time friend, Office Porter O’Brien, Josie sets out to clear her name and find out who really killed “the giant”.
Find out in this next book in the Ever After Mysteries, combining beloved fairy tales and mysteries. A Giant Murder offers a retelling of “Jack and the Beanstalk” with enough clues and suspects to keep you looking over your shoulder. We’d recommend Kevlar… but it hasn’t been invented yet!

About the Narrator
Speaking Life into Story
Queen of the one-eyebrow quirk, Christa DelSorbo auditioned for the role of Tarzan’s mom and has the photos to prove she ended up as the only cast member in a literal cast. These days, they keep her stuck in a box with a ball on a stick and only feed her when she reads another chapter of another fabulous book. She loves every minute. Or so they tell her. *eyebrow slowly raises *
