Cupid’s arrow can be deadly!
Mac is back at the Tiny Wanderer. Barely making any progress on his manuscript, his distraction, and procrastination prompt him to buy two tickets to an interactive dinner theater event: The Valentine Dine or Die.

Will art imitate life or death?
Definitely death.

Millie ponders a big career opportunity at Salem Bank. After work, she joins Mac for their romantic albeit unorthodox date. Will the dinner show ease her mind and lower her stress?

Not at all.
From the Tiny Wanderer to the Potter House, Third Street to the Fox River, the Geneva winter makes the dead body of a prominent real estate contractor even colder.

So, stick close to your Valentine, keep warm, embrace, and get cozy because your favorite conundrum cracking couple is back in The Valentine Dine or Die.

I love a good holiday-themed cozy and The Valentine Dine or Die is only 99¢ for Kindle. I did read the first in the series last year, but this one could work fine as a standalone.

Mac and Millie, our ex-cop and witch, are back in another fun mystery. What could be better than an interactive mystery dinner experience, especially for Valentine’s Day? Mac can’t pass up free tickets to the dinner, especially since he hasn’t bought a present yet. Of course, since this is a cozy mystery, when the lights go out at dinner, someone ends up well and truly dead. Maybe it’s a suicide, probably not.

Mac and Millie make a good team, they have some cute banter and they actually trust each other. Vance, Mac’s brother, is handling the case for the cops, but he’s hitting some dead ends, and Mac doesn’t have to follow the rules, which makes his help useful. The characters, even the secondary ones, are fun. The motive seemed realistic and the clues were there.

It was a fun Valentine’s Day read. Short, light, with a bit of romance and magic.
