Isis Crawford Books Overview

A Catered Murder

Bernadette Simmons wasn’t sure what to expect when she left L.A. and her no good, cheating boyfriend to move back in with her too close for comfort family in New York. And her sister Libby had no idea what she was in for when she hired Bernie to work for her catering business. But in between cutting up canapes and dishing up desserts, the two find themselves in the midst of a mystery they can really sink their teeth into…
It’s only been a few days since Libby hired her sister Bernie to help out at A Little Taste of Heaven, and already they’ve got their hands full baking cookies and slicing rare beef tenderloin to serve at a high school reunion. The dinner has a ‘Dracula’ theme and a very strange guest of honour: Laird Wrenn, a New York Times best selling author of vampire novels. From the minute he sweeps into the school cafeteria decked out in a cape, accompanied by some truly odd hangers on Libby and Bernie know this will be an evening unlike any other. And they’re right. During his after dinner speech, Wrenn pours a glass of water, takes a long sip and drops stone cold dead…
Now Libby and Bernie will have to put their heads together to figure out whodunit in a mystery that promises to be deadly to the very last bite…

She’s got a USD25,000 dress gorgeous and made to order, a rich Estonian fiance head of a multimillion dollar caviar empire and a four star menu planned by none other than Bernadette and Libby Simmons. Never mind that she’s not really in love with her boring, bland groom to be. This is about as good as it gets for a country girl from Missouri. But the dream wedding quickly turns into a nightmare. Just hours before she’s scheduled to walk down the aisle, Leeza takes an arrow to the chest and drops dead. Now Libby and Bernadette have more, on their minds than pouring Cristal and cutting up wedding cake: they’ve got an archery inclined killer to find. The sisters suspect that Leeza may have been involved in a caviar switching scam, which would give several people a motive for murder. But the chef/sleuths aren’t about to put all their fish eggs in one basket there’s also the up for grabs fiance’s formerly frumpy assistant, the groomsman with the wandering hands, and, of course, the bereft almost husband himself. It’s up to Bernadette and Libby to get to the bottom of it before the killer can hit another bull’s eye…

But when wealthy socialite Amethyst Applegate is found dead in the haunted house, Bernie and Libby wonder if a murderer might also be lurking about Peabody’s gloomy halls…
While almost everyone Amethyst ever met might have a motive for killing her, not everyone had access to the Peabody School. All Bernie and Libby know is if they don’t solve this mystery soon, they might become the next stars in a real life horror flick…

A Catered Birthday Party

A Little Taste of Heaven catering certainly knows how to feed people. Dogs, however..? Bernie and Libby will have their chance to impress guests of the four legged variety when they lay out the spread for Trudy the Pug’s birthday luncheon. But this isn’t just any doggie ‘do. Trudy’s owner, Annabel Colbert, is one of the richest women in town and as mascot of the Colbert toy company, Trudy herself is a bona fide celebrity. When the big day arrives, Trudy and her canine cohorts are ready to dig in to the delicacies but the first to dip her fangs into the wine is Annabel. Mere moments later, the hostess is shrieking she’s been poisoned and proving it by falling face first into her soup. After two days in a coma, Annabel is dead. It seems the woman who had everything also had her share of enemies. In fact, Annabel was cheating, blackmailing, or backstabbing most of the people she knew, including her very own best friend, her very own husband, his personal assistant, and last but not least, Trudy’s trainer and kennel owner. With so many suspects, sniffing out the truth is rapidly becoming a tricky, not to mention risky, proposition. Bernie and Libby had better close the oven on this case fast before they get burned…

A Catered Thanksgiving

Sisters Bernie and Libby Simmons have handled plenty of catering challenges with grace and aplomb. But this Thanksgiving, they’re cooking a feast for felons…
Whipping up Thanksgiving dinner with all the trim*mings can be stressful for anyone, but that goes double for the Field family. They know that every family get together has to be picture perfect, or they risk getting cut out of dominating patriarch Monty’s extremely lucrative will. That’s where A Little Taste of Heaven, Bernie and Libby’s catering company, comes in. Surely with their lumpless mashed potatoes and to die for gravy on the table, even the super dysfunctional Fields can pretend to get along for one meal. But no one can dress up the disaster when the cover worthy turkey goes boom right in Monty Field’s scowling face, sending him to that great dining room in the sky. With every member of the Field family harboring their own cornucopia of secrets, figuring out who wanted to carve up Monty isn’t going to be easy. And to make matters worse, the Field Mansion is draped under a freak November snowstorm, making any hope of escape or getting outside help vanish faster than the Simmons’ famous stuffing. Now, trapped with a killer determined to get more than his fair share of the pumpkin pie, Bernie and Libby are going to have to convince the Fields that they aren’t to blame and find out who really is, fast. Because it won’t be long before the leftovers and the Simmons sisters’ chances of surviving this real turkey of a day run out for good…
