But their nifty plan starts circling the drain when his unscrupulous business practices end in his untimely death and they discover that he's been siphoning clients from their partnership.
With only a week before the state puts pulls the business license Lalla and Pearlie will have to corral a wall-climbing Apache ninja, pacify their former boss's greedy ex-wives and nail a killer. Sure Lalla and Pearlie are in a really tight spot, but all they need is a miracle or two.  

  
 A Dead Red Miracle by R.P. Dahlke (A Dead Red #5) 


A Dead Red Miracle (A Dead Red #5)I admit it, I‘ve not read any previous books in this series, but it was insta-love for Lalla and Pearlie Bains! The cousins on their way to being P.I.s, getting training and on the job experience. What better way to have an instant clientele list than to buy the agency they are working for, or so they thought, too bad the guy was a snake, a cheat and was fleecing them, but it isn’t proper to speak badly of the dead and their boss most definitely is. On a bright note, the girls have a case! Find the murderer, but the possible suspects are legion and time is running short. What has Ron been up to? Who would murder him and why? Lalla and Pearlie are on the case, stand back, Sherlock and see how it’s done!

A Dead Red Miracle by R. P. Dahlke is one part quirky, one part humorous, one part mysterious and 100% light and entertaining. R. P. Dahlke has created two sly-as-a-fox blonde characters who use their blondeness to their advantage against those who think Blonde jokes are the height of entertainment. Written a little tongue-in-cheek, this tale is fun from start to finish in spite of the matter of the dead guy. What have the girls gotten mixed up in? Who is the killer?
Although I am new to this series, I was comfortable with jumping in with both feet mid-stream, thanks to the brilliant writing style of Ms. Dahlke, or was it the Southern hospitality of Lalla and Pearlie?

I received this copy from R.P. Dahlke in exchange for my honest review.
