Nashville’s perkiest private eye—coffeehouse manager Juliet Langley—goes undercover in the party-planning industry to solve a suspicious death in this thrilling cozy mystery from USA Today bestselling author Caroline Fardig.
Inspired by her past sleuthing successes, Juliet Langley has officially joined the ranks of Nashville’s licensed private investigators. Her best friend, Pete Bennett, doesn’t worry that her detective work might interfere with her full-time job running his coffeehouse, Java Jive. He just wishes she would spend her free time rejoining the local music scene instead of tailing cheating spouses. But when one of Java Jive’s baristas, Shane, asks Juliet to look into the suspicious death of his fiancée, Pete encourages her to plow full steam ahead.
Since his fiancée died on the job, Shane suspects that her party-planning colleagues are up to something criminal—and will do anything to keep it quiet. After Juliet recruits Pete to go undercover with her at a wedding showcase, she discovers that white lace and black satin have a way of hiding big, fat secrets.
If that weren’t enough to fill her plate, her latest P.I. job has her crossing paths with her ex, Detective Ryder Hamilton. They’re barely on speaking terms, but to solve the case, they might have to cooperate. No matter where Juliet goes, she’s brewing up trouble.

“I was hooked from the first page. I loved it!”—Dorothy Cannell, award-winning author of the Ellie Haskell mysteries, on Death Before Decaf
“This author comes up with some very interesting ways to kill someone, and her injection of humor at just the right time is perfect. On its own, Mug Shot is a really good read, but if you follow the series, it will be even better.”—Linda Thompson, host of The Authors Show

  • This one was just OK

    By KPMe1
    This was my least favorite of this series so far. The mystery part of it was fine and is what brings it from 2 stars to 3. The characters were much less appealing this time around. There was so much back and forth, wishy-washy behavior in all of the characters that it was very hard to get behind any of them. I found myself just pushing through to the end just to get finished with it. I have liked the previous books and even felt it was very Stephanie Plumbish but not this time. I was very frustrating to not be able to get behind a single one of the lead characters. The previous books in the series were good so I had been looking forward to this one. It just seems that all the men are kind of wimpy and Juliette was just all over the place.

    Another fast, fun read. This time Juliet, who now has a PI license, and Pete are looking into why the fiancé of one of the Java Jive employees was found dead of an OD when they knew she wasn't a drug user. Many of the characters from previous novels are brought back and the antagonists are equally colorful. Thanks to Net Galley and Alibi for an ARC for an honest review.
  • The best yet!

    I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Since Juliet is going to do her own investigations anyway, she may as well make it official and get her P.I. license. I liked that Juliet and Pete weren't batting their eyelashes at each other through this book. And I definitely liked that Juliet's investigation's seemed plausible now. Also it was nice to not have to read about the nastiness of coworkers towards Juliet constantly. Great ending, can't wait to see how it plays out.
  • Team Ryder!
