Books from the Backlog - Engaged in Death

Today I'm linking up with Carole from Carole's Random Life of Books for Books from the Backlog.  I really enjoy the chance to feature a book that's been hiding in the piles of books for far too long!

Goodreads:  Engaged in Death by Stephanie Blackmoore

Blurb:  All appears peaceful in sleepy Port Quincy, Pennsylvania--but in this small town, old grudges die hard. . .
After dumping her cheating fiancé and cancelling the wedding, Mallory Shepard can't bear another disaster. So when the former bride-to-be unexpectedly inherits Thistle Park, a ramshackle mansion in her ex's hometown of Port Quincy, it's a problem she can't afford--literally. Abound with stray cats, peeling wallpaper, and nosy neighbors, Mallory is dying to sell it off--once she finally fixes up both the place and her messy life. . .

Turns out, Thistle Park has its charms. But the honeymoon phase is abruptly cut short when an unwanted visitor is found dead on the front lawn. Enlisting the help of her sister Rachel, Mallory vows to unveil the killer before she herself becomes married to the suspect list. . .

Why It Needs to Come Off the Shelf:  This is one of my seriously overdue NetGalley books and recently one of my favorite cozy mystery YouTubers has been talking about it and it sounds really fun.


  1. I love a good cozy mystery, this series sounds like a lot of fun, stray cats and peeling wallpaper!

  2. Always good to take note of a back log book and have good reasons to pick it up soon.

  3. I haven't read this one, but agree it sounds good! I hope you enjoy it when you read it!

  4. I would pick it up for the cover alone but it also sounds really good. It feels great to finally get those past due NetGalley books off your virtual shelves.
