  • Wes and Holly are celebrating the conclusion of another outstanding party. They're a little concerned since Madeline had left for home a little earlier then normal dog tired, but they think she'll be fine tomorrow. Then they hear the news bulletin. Someone has been murdered in Madeline's bed.
    Twelve hours earlier, Madeline and her employees and co-workers are getting ready for the Jazz Ball, a huge event to raise money for the Woodburn School for Music. Madeline runs out to get something from her car, only to find trash all over the place. On closer examination, she finds it's personal papers belonging to a neighbor. She's shock when her offer to return the papers is met with hostility and the offer of a blackmail payment.
    If that weren't enough, the prize item from the charity auction at the ball, a rare saxophone, vanishes without a trace. What could have happened to it? Throw in the return of Chuck Honnett and a new love interest, and Madeline's life may be more complicated then she knows what to do with. Especially if she doesn't know whom to trust.
    It's no secret that this series has been a favorite since I first found it a couple years ago. This entry finds Madeline, and her author, in top form. The plot weaves all over the place before we reach a heart pounding climax. The characters spring off the page, especially Madeline, Wes, and Holly. And the two sidekicks get plenty of "page" time this go around. They really do make a great trio. Jerrilyn Farmer has such a fun, breezy writing style that it's easy to be sucked into the book and hard to put it down.
    This is a series to savor. Best read in order; start with SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL. I already can't wait for Madeline's next wild and fun adventure.

  • I love books that have a continuing story line only negative they are not marked as 1st 2nd 3rd etc.. it is too easy to read out of order an so you sometimes get lost. but only for a few minutes..i wish there were more....

  • I got one of her books as I like to try new authors - and have now read every last one of this cozy series. Am hoping that she's working on more!

  • a caterer who solves murders. what could be more fun?? and jerrilyn packs a whole hoot into her novels -- cool characters, cool places, cool foodstuffs -- and it makes you want MORE.

  • I started reading Jerrilyn Farmer's mysteries because of the delicious recipes mentioned. This one, however, turned me off so badly I crossed her off my "Books to Read" list!

  • Madeline Bean owns and runs Mad Bean Catering. They are catering an event to raise funds for the Woodburn School of Music. A rare saxophone is auctioned off for one hundred thousand dollars at the Jazz Ball. Unfortunately when the couple prepares to leave with their new saxophone, it is discovered the case is empty. Someone has stolen the saxophone at the auction.

    Before coming to the Ball, Madeline found trash strewn around her yard. It turns out to the papers belong to a nearby neighbor. When she sees this neighbor at the Ball, she tries to set up a time to return the papers to him. He misunderstands and thinks she's trying to blackmail them.

    Can this night get any stranger? Oh, yes. When Madeline Bean is involved, nothing is simple and uncomplicated.

    When she finally gets home, and I'll let you read the story to find out about her adventure in getting home, she finds a woman has been murdered in her bed. The police thought it was her. When her friends hear the report, they think it's her. Even Chuck Honnett, her ex-boyfriend the police detective, thought it was her.

    She goes to stay with Wes until things can be sorted out and her house cleaned up. Soon it is discovered that she is in danger. Who is after her and why? Who can she trust besides Wes?

    Then there is another murder and Madeline decides she'd better look into things before she becomes the next victim.

    This is a fabulous series. I always enjoy reading about Madeline Bean's adventures. It is always a fast-paced, easy cozy to read. I can't wait for the next one!

    The characters are wonderful. I always enjoy mysteries with food in them. And the writing is superb. I highly recommend this book and the whole series.

  • After thoroughly enjoying Mumbo Gumbo, I looked forward to reading Jerrilyn Farmer's latest Madeline Bean novel, Perfect Sax. And I can say it was worth the wait. Lots of stuff going on in this book...
    Madeline Bean has just finished putting on a catered event for a charitable group, and she's ready to go home and collapse. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. She finds some personal papers of a neighbor in her driveway and finds the person at the event. When she tries to tell him that she has them, he thinks that she is trying to blackmail him. His girlfriend also goes off the deep end on Maddie. A rare and expensive saxaphone which had a $100K bid turns up missing when people go to claim their winnings after the event. On her co-worker's request after the event, she loans her jeep to an employee for an emergency, but the employee turns up in Maddie's bedroom that night shot to death. When the neighbor whose papers she found also turns up murdered, she starts wondering if she's next. A number of people in her life could well be the killer and/or be involved in the theft, and she's not real sure who to trust. To make it worse, she's falling hard for this guy who might be involved, and she's still not sure how she feels about her ex-boyfriend cop who wasn't quite yet divorce from his wife.
    Much like Mumbo Gumbo, the plot twists keep you guessing, and you don't get complete resolution until the end. Maddie's an extremely likeable character, and you easily identify with her as she's trying to stay alive and not lose her sanity. While her personal life is still up in the air at the end of the book, there is plenty of room to run with it in the next installment. Good read, and good job by the author.
