HOW TO HOST A KILLER PARTY by Penny Warner (Signet)

When Presley Parker is unexpectedly downsized from her position as an instructor of abnormal psychology at a local college, she decides to follow in her mother's footsteps. Her new career as an event planner receives a boost when she arranges a "surprise" wedding for the mayor of San Francisco and his diva fiancee on Alcatraz Island.

With San Francisco as a backdrop, this traditional mystery is a delight to read. Warner seamlessly weaves many interesting historical facts about  the City of San Francisco into the story. Presley finds herself in many unfortunate circumstances, but the way she views them is totally entertaining. Warner has a talent for building suspenseful situations and creating a page-turner with endearing characters. I look forward to reading the next book in this well written  series.
