I am really enjoying this series with Bel. This is the second book in the series and both have been very fun. There is always a dead body at the manor but it is never in a gory way. I also like the underlying mystery that is included. I received this book from St. Martins’s Press for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
Bel McGrath loves her work as a wedding chef. But with her latest event set to take place at Shamrock Manor, she just can’t seem to catch a break. The Casey wedding has left her with ten thousand greenbacks in the hole, a missing staff member, and a dead groom. Now, in between Guinness beers and pub brawls, Bel must find a way to crack the case–even though what she should be cracking are eggs into the batter of the wedding cake. A good Irish girl’s work is never done. . . What begins as local town fodder for an episode of “Wedding Gone Wild” is turning into “Gangsters with Guns.” With the Casey family spiraling out of control, and billable McGrath hours being lost by the minute, Bel is definitely in too deep. With all these shenanigans, she barely has time to obsess over her new boyfriend and her own unsolved mystery from years ago! Time is running out on getting the next couple down the aisle before the so-called luck of the Irish takes a deadly turn… Bel of the Brawl will keep Maggie McConnon’s fans, new and old, guessing.
