      I imagine myself as one of Pepper Pomeroy,'s Perfect Proposals clients. Perfect Proposals is a business where Pepper organizes and sets up the perfect proposal for a soon to be engaged couple, Pepper tries to suit the perfect wedding proposal to the couple by their likes and personality. This second book in this series had me dreaming of my own wedding proposal, mine was special but paled in comparison to one of Pepper's Perfect Proposals.Pepper's sister, Felicity is getting married and Felicity [...]

      openbooksociety/article/boBrought to you by OBS reviewer KaytBodice of Evidence is the second book in Nancy J. Parra’s series Perfect Proposals. I have not read the first one and although it is not as easy as some, you are able to read this one without being too lost. I really enjoyed the characters and their interplay. The mystery is intriguing and well written. The storyline is interesting and easy to follow, while still keeping the reading in suspense. While I know nothing about weddings, t [...]

      I’m a big fan of author Nancy J. Parra’s Baker’s Treat Mystery series. And I love watching bridal shows on television like Say Yes To The Dress. So, when I saw that Ms. Parra was writing the Perfect Proposals series, I was thrilled! Book one, ENGAGED IN MURDER, was everything I thought it would be and more. BODICE OF EVIDENCE, book two, is a perfect second installment in this series. The discovery of the body happens very early in the story. What follows next is a well thought out, tightly [...]

      I have read a bunch of totally uninspiring cozies this month and this one was just another in the string. A 2.5 star read, but rounding up. I like Ms. Parra's Baker's Treat series and also the Candy Coated series she writes as Nancy Coco. This one? Not so much. Pepper just doesn't grab me at all. Don't like her mom much and her sister, Felicity, is just too much for me to take. The mystery was okay, though I don't think there were quite enough clues. Might just be me, so take it with a grain of [...]

      Dollycas’s ThoughtsShopping for a wedding dress is supposed to be fun but it can be quite stressful to find the “perfect” dress. Pepper knows shopping with her sister, Felicity, for her dress is going to interesting but she never expected that when they arrived for their last appointment the shop’s owner would be dead. Dead, as in murdered in the alley behind the boutique. They had arrived a little late and Pepper feels if they would have been on time they could have saved the woman. But [...]

      Delightful fun! And I can't believe I'm saying that about a murder mystery. I typically don't read this genre, since the whole idea of murder makes me uncomfortable. But clearly I've been missing something. The story doesn't make light of the horror of the witnesses or the family's grief, but solving the mystery was great fun, and Parra kept me guessing until the end.Pepper Pomeroy, founder and owner of Perfect Proposals, is a character I found endearing right away. With her unmanageable red hai [...]

      Bodice of Evidence is the second in the Perfect Proposals mystery series. Pepper Pomeroy has left her corporate job, settled back in her suburban Chicago hometown and started her dream company Perfect Proposals.Having successfully planned her sister Felicity's engagement to beau Warren, Pepper is now dress shopping with her and their mom Abigail. It had been a long nerve racking day and things only get worse when in the last shop, Bridal Dreams, Pepper stumbles upon the body of owner Eva Svetkov [...]

    8. Jane Night says:

      Pepper is a wedding proposal planner and an overall interesting character. I haven’t read any other books in this series but I felt like I was able to jump right in and be pretty on top of who the characters were and what was going on.The book focused much more on Pepper than on the mystery and at times I did feel a bit cheated by that. We get details about the proposals that Pepper has planned but they don’t have much impact on the mystery story line though they are interesting in their own [...]

    9. Sherri Smith says:

      Excellent mystery story filled with characters you care about!! I can't wait to read Pepper's next story! HIGHLY recommended!!

    10. Kim Reads (Read Your Writes Book Reviews) says:

      I found Bodice of Evidence to be a very enjoyable read. It focuses on Pepper Pomeroy and her quest to help her sister find a gown for her upcoming wedding. When Pepper, her sister, and mother stubble upon the body of Eva Svetkovska, they are horrified to say the least. Feeling bad for Eva's daughter who is left to run the wedding boutique which is now struggling as a result of the murder, Pepper decides to do a little digging to see if she can help the police out.Bodice of Evidence is different [...]

    11. Jessi says:

      While the mystery was not a huge part of the book, I actually really enjoyed the character development of both Pepper Pomeroy as well as some of the secondary characters. Made me interested enough to possibly read the first book in the series if it crosses my path. Pepper is an event planner, proposals and engagement parties (is this a thing? Probably in Chicago). But she's also stumbled onto her second body in this book, that of a wedding dress shop owner who was supposed to be fitting Pepper's [...]

    12. Elizabeth(Thoughts From an Evil Overlord) says:

      Bodice of Evidence is a well-constructed mystery with interesting likable characters and a little conflict in the secondary storyline outside of the mystery which will bring readers back for more of Pepper, Detective Murphy, and her family. The story opens with Pepper feeling an obligation to look into the death of Eva, a bridal shop owner she has never met. While busy detecting, Pepper is still planning her sister's engagement party as well as two original marriage proposals. Someone who helps [...]

    13. Christy Carlyle says:

      It seems odd to call a book with a murder mystery at its center a fun and amusing read, but that’s exactly what Nancy J. Parra’s BODICE OF EVIDENCE is, and it’s exactly why the book succeeds so well as a cozy mystery. Although a murder kicks off the mystery, the story begins with a dreaded shop-to-shop hunt for the perfect wedding dress, which immediately drew me into the story.I love female sleuths, and Pepper Pomeroy is utterly charming and likable. I admired her spunkiness and independe [...]

      Wedding proposals and mysteries, my favorite things combined seamlessly.Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books1 star This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.2 stars This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.3 stars This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find anothe [...]

After a long day with Her Sister Felicity and their Mother shopping for the perfect dress they take a short coffee break before going to the final appointment.When they get there the shop seems deserted but they soon find the owner murdered in the alley out back. Pepper vows to find the killer it has to be easier than finding the perfect wedding dress. B [...]

    16. Doward Wilson says:

      This is a funny, entertaining murder romp. Pepper runs Perfect Proposals, offering unique marriage proposal settings that will keep you turning the pages. Murders just happen around her and she is like a red headed white knight charging in to find the killer. The theme and setting, in Chicago, blend well with realistic characters to give you a convoluted murder plot that keeps going right to the conclusion. This is murder plotting at the best, with comedy and love mixed in. This is the second bo [...]

    17. Lucretia says:

      Pepper is a feisty fun heroine who is supported by a great cast. I loved the relationships that were developed and really look forward to seeing how they continue. Even the suspects were interesting and well rounded, and the outcome was an intense surprise. I loved the pace in which the mystery unfolded; it kept me up late, turning pages. I would strongly recommend this fabulous book and will be searching for more from this series.

    18. Nancy H says:

      This is a really good first entry in a new mystery series featuring an event planner. When the woman who is to show her sister some wedding gowns is murdered, the main character has to investigate and find out the real criminal. It is well-plotted, with good characters, and definitely a series that I will want to follow.

    19. Ronica says:

      I want Pepper to plan my engagement. I just recently discovered this series by Ms.Parra, and I have to say that the books are fun and easy reads. I love a good mystery and I was able to figure out early on who the killer was. I didn't stop from enjoying this book, I would recommend this series to cozy lovers everywhere.

    20. Linda Langford at Chatting About Cozies says:

      Amatuer sleuth, Pepper Pomeroy, owns Perfect Proposals, a business in which she sets up dream or fantasy proposals for wealthy clients. This story has several clever and fun planned proposals throughout. The mystery is entertaining, and I enjoyed Pepper, her mother, and her sister, as they shopped for the perfect wedding dress.

    21. Mary Ann says:

      Parra has found a definite winner with Pepper Pomroy. Just her name makes you smile and wonder what she's up to. And in this book Pepper is up to quite a bit. The fast pace of the plot kept me turning the pages until I just had to finish. The secondary plot lines were as intriguing and captivating as the murder. The whole Perfect Proposal idea is brilliant! Impatiently waiting for the next book!

    22. Becky says:

      The Toby character pushed this from a 4 to a 5 for me. He seems like someone who could show-up again and is definitely a person of interest (and not as a killer!). Wedding gown shopping is very stressful in this cozy!

    23. Susan says:

      Reading the acknowledgements, you discover that Julie Hyzy comes up with the plots; once you know that, you can see her plotting style. That does not take away from the input of Parra to flesh it out. I enjoyed the mix of personal and mystery; of work, mild romance, and danger. It worked for me.

    24. Karen Holman says:

      Excellent mystery with a great cast of characters. Some will be friends and some will be forgetful. This is a new series set in Chicago. I will be watching for more books to be published. copyright 2015

    25. Jenni Schell says:

      Honestly, there has not been a book by Nancy Parra that I haven't loved. This is no different. The characters are wonderful and I didn't know who the murderer was until the very end. I love this series.

    26. Lisa says:

      This book is an entertaining, curl-up-with-a-cup-of-tea on a rainy morning book. It is a quick read yet is also entertaining. The interaction among the many female characters, especially the mothers / daughters / sisters, is realistic even though the 'sleuthing' in the book may not be.

    27. Johanna says:

      Characters are a hoot! Whole family is involved, by accident of course

    28. Di says:

      I liked this book more than I thought I would from the opening pages. I'm still not sure about some of the characters, but I'm interested enough to check out the next one from this author.

    29. Jean Hall says:

      This is the first book I have read in this series and now want to read the first one.
