    So amazing

    I just love this author. And this series never disappoints. All the characters are so well developed. We got to see all our lovable peeps from earlier books in the series. Maggie is one of my favorites. The story kept me guessing all the way to the end. My favorite thing about the series is how it’s set in Louisiana. Also, the books can be read as stand alone or in any order. I’ve only been to Louisiana one time but I absolutely loved it. It’s so magical, whether in the country or the city. **Thank you NetGalley for my copy in exchange for an honest review**

    Another fabulous entry in the series!

    Maggie Crozat and her family are hosting Tammy Barker, the famous local girl who made it big in the country music industry. Tammy and her manager have booked the entire Crozat B&B just for Tammy as she is headlines Country Cajun Live, the local music festival preceding New Orleans Jazz Fest. While the locals are thrilled to have Tammy come home, Gaynell is not feeling the love. Turns out Tammy had mean grilled all over Gaynell in the past and there’s still some bad blood on Tammy’s part. After Tammy leaves the stage the first day of the festival, her manager, Pony Pickens, is electrocuted. Was it meant for Tammy or Pony? Since Gaynell had rebuffed Pony’s sexual advances, which Tammy makes sure the police know about, Gaynell becomes the most likely suspect. While the Pelican PD and Maggie don’t believe it for one minute, the local prosecutor and Tammy are making it hard for Gaynell to be cleared. Maggie believes in Gaynell’s innocence and even calls off her engagement to Bo to make her faith in Gaynell known to all. Will Maggie be able to find another suspect for the Pelican PD and evidence that proves Gaynell’s evidence before she’s sent up the river to the big house? And can she do it before Maggie herself is in the killer’s crosshairs? I adore this series and haven’t missed one of the five books yet! The Louisiana accent comes through loud and clear and you can just smell the food and hear the music playing as you immerse yourself Ellen Byron’s writing. Lots of suspects, red herrings and twist and turns to keep you guess who dun it right up until the big reveal. A fantastic series you don’t want to miss!

    COME PASS A GOOD TIME, CHÈRE!

    COME PASS A GOOD TIME, CHÈRE! When you open an Ellen Byron’s Cajun Country Mystery, set in the beautiful and inviting Pelican, LA, you will be greeted by all the locals saying, “Come Pass A Good Time, CHÈRE!” In other words, “Come join our family and friends and have a great time!” You will always be welcome to stay at the Crozat B&B where descendants of the original owners still reside. FATAL CAJUN FESTIVAL is Byron’s latest installment and it is a winner! Grand-mère Crozat suggested at the tourism board meeting that the town host CAJUN COUNTRY LIVE! for people who were passing through on their way to Jazz Fest in New Orleans. The headliner will be a local girl who recently found fame & fortune by winning a national talent search. Sounds Simple Enough. When said singer & her entourage roll in to Pelican, it seems as if most everyone else’s brains have taken a leave of absence! Old jealousies, past hurts, hero worship and relatives who haven’t been heard from (much less SEEN) in years suddenly appear to be bosom buddies, a band made up of thrown together has-beens and an egotistical, womanizing manager all add up to one thing - Peril in Pelican that ends up with a Fatality during the Festival! Byron is a master of this genre and this area and its people. When you’ve finished one of her books, you feel as though you’ve literally taken a trip to small town Louisiana and had a visit! Like any good Louisiana Hostess, she always shares her favorite Recipes. Don’t overstay your welcome though or cause any mayhem or mischief because there’s always something spooky going on in the Bayou ... I was provided an ARC of this book by Crooked Lane Books and NetGalley. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence.

    A Fatal Festival?!?

    I loved this novel! The plot was full of twists and suspense that made me want to keep reading until the end. The suspects were a bunch of characters with flaws and idiosyncrasies that made them easily identifiable. I think the romantic subplot between Maggie and her fiancé is a nice interlude between the suspenseful moments. I can’t wait until the next one! I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and am voluntarily reviewing it.

    Entertaining cozy mystery

    Fatal Cajun Festival is an engaging cozy mystery that will have your craving etouffee and a beignet. Fatal Cajun Festival by Ellen Byron is the fifth A Cajun Country Mystery. This is a series that I recommend reading in order because it will allow you to get to know the characters and the town. I enjoy Ellen Byron’s conversational writing style. Her story welcomes you and I soon find myself immersed in the story. There is a great cast of characters in A Cajun Country Mystery series. I like their Southern charm and Louisiana quirkiness. Maggie comes from a close family and lives with her grandmother, Charlotte. Maggie was happy to put her wedding plans on the back burner to help with the festival. She designed the graphics for the festival and is also making the pralines (they are yummy) to sell at the Pelican Praline booth. Unfortunately, the Crozat B&B kitchen is off limits thanks to Tammy and her entourage with their special meal requests. Maggie must rely on the kindness of her friends and relatives for the use of their kitchens. I liked Gaynell with her sweet demeanor and beautiful voice. Gaynell and the Gator Girls played lively tunes that set my toes to tapping. I thought the mystery was clever from the way the individual was killed to the killer. You need to pay careful attention to the clues, or you will end up fingering the wrong person. Charlotte is sorting through her belongings and uncovers some information about her deceased husband that raises questions and sends her on a journey. The joyful ending will have you beaming. At the end of the book there are a couple of recipes including one for pecan pralines. Fatal Cajun Festival is a harmonious cozy mystery with lip-smacking pecan pralines, toe tapping Cajun tunes, a dramatic diva, an electric stage, a clever killer and a sneaky sleuth.
