Annie Capshaw is a bank teller by day at Pioneer Savings and Loan. At night she manages Bellywashers, a bar and restaurant. Annie likes to snoop around and investigate crimes. You could call her a private detective, but she doesn’t mean to investigate murders, she just happens upon them.
Annie’s boyfriend is Jim MacDonald, owner of Bellywashers. Jim decides to teach a bar-food cooking class out of his bar/restaurant. Annie is a horrible cook but reluctantly helps out with the classes. On the first night of classes, Annie’s best friend Eve recognizes one of the students as her ex boyfriend Brad. Brad ruined Annie’s life and she is furious when she sees him.
Eve is part of an organization called Women Opposed to Weasels. The group of women have all been wronged by men, a number of them all have been screwed over by Brad. Eve has been stalking Brad since seeing him at the cooking class. She wants to find evidence to prove that he really is a horrible person and warn other women about him.
Annie goes out for drinks with several people from the cooking class. The next day, one of the students is found dead. Eve’s ex boyfriend Tyler is a cop and is investigating Eve for the murder of the dead student. When Annie finds out that Eve is in trouble, she has no choice but to put on her private investigator hat and clear her best friend’s name. Who would want to kill one of the cooking class students?
DEAD MEN DON’T GET THE MUNCHIES is a fun cozy type mystery that is enjoyable from start to finish. This was my first book by Miranda Bliss and I look forward to reading the other books in this mystery series.
The story moves along at a fast pace and is exciting, suspenseful and funny. Cozy mystery readers will have a great time reading DEAD MEN DON’T GET THE MUNCHIES and I highly recommend it for a fun read!
