Murder on the 4th of JulyEmma and Molly are in New York City for the 4th of July spending some bonding time with Emma’s new stepmother, Macy. For the holiday, both Colby and her father intend on joining them. When they meet up at a lovely restaurant near the park at Brooklyn Bridge, they are just enjoying their time together before the fireworks display that evening. But when a hostess screams inside for someone to call the police, everything turns upside down.
Their own waitress was murdered in the break room, and the local police can’t come to the crime scene in a timely manner due to holiday traffic. The murder has all the earmarks of a crime of passion, but they can’t be sure who the culprit is, and they can’t find the weapon. Without any evidence, will they be able to solve the case before the perpetrator gets away with murder?
Emma is on vacation in New York City with her father, his new bride, and her beloved Colby. When they all meet up for a meal, their server is murdered after taking their payment. Because they are the only law enforcement professionals on the scene, they get to start the investigation until the locals can arrive. As usual, Emma finds out more than anyone else in a matter of minutes.
The girl needs to become an official detective. Although, she is practically a Jessica Fletcher with all of the murders she encounters.
As with the rest of this series, it is a quick and easy read. This one, I did figure out who had done it pretty early. And I have to say I find it interesting that Colby is coming along yet again on what should be a family vacation. We're inching closer and closer to something finally happening.
