Another Big Hit Curse of the Holy Pail by Sue Ann Jaffarian

The Curse of the Holy Pail (An Odelia Grey Mystery, #2)

 The Curse of the Holy Pail (An Odelia Grey Mystery #2) by Sue Ann Jaffarian

I just have to say right up front I love this book and this series by Sue Ann Jaffarian. Last night I stayed up past midnight to finish this book because I just couldn't put it down, 4:30am came early this morning, but the book was well worth losing sleep over.

Odelia Grey is a plus size, smart, sassy, paralegal who seems to have a knack for getting into the middle of murder mysteries. Trouble just seems to find her even when she isn't looking for it. In The Curse of the Holy Pail a client for the firm she works for collects lunch boxes and when she goes to do some notary work for him he shows her his collection of lunch boxes, including his most precious one The Holy Pail.  Later that day he is found dead at his office and the pail missing and everyone assumes Odelia has the pail since he had sent her one from his collection earlier that day after their meeting. So again Odelia is thrown into danger while trying to solve this mystery that just happened to fall in her lap.

This book has a number of possible suspects and it keeps you guessing to the end who the murderer is. Odelia also goes through a range of emotions from fear, to anger, to sorrow and of course her love for her boyfriend Greg. It has everything mystery, mixed with a little romance and intrigue as well as giving us a look into the world of lunch boxes.  I think with this book we see even more into who Odelia Grey is and her character.

I can't say enough how good this book is and I can't wait to read the next book in the series, Thugs and Kisses (An Odelia Grey Mystery #3) by Sue Ann Jaffarian

  1. Just scrolling down a bit more and I spotted this review. I'm a big Sue Ann Jaffarian fan myself. She's a great woman in real life, too. You've got plenty of great books in front of you.

    And as I mentioned on Goodreads, watch for a character named Mark Baker in Hide and Snoop.

    1. I love her books. I got started with her Ghost of Granny Apples Mysteries and loved the ones I have read. Then started on Odelia Grey Mysteries. I will be watching for Mark Baker in that book. How exciting to be a character in one of her books. She seems like a great person besides author. I will be reviewing more of her books too
