Goodreads:  Now the star of her own reality show, The Family Frugalicious, Maddie Michaels heads south of the border with her family to cover bargain destination weddings at a swank, but budget friendly, Mexican resort. Things get a little too real when timeshare sales manager Alejandro Espinoza makes a play for Maddie one evening and ends up floating dead in the pool the next. Was it an accident or a preplanned part of the Mrs. Frugalicious storyline?

When the show's producers extend the trip so she, her all-but-ex Frank, and the kids can investigate—not to mention get enough footage for a two-part, Emmy-worthy episode—Maddie fears she's in way more agua caliente than she ever bargained for.

Kritters Thoughts:  A perfect combo of chick lit and who dun it mystery.  I absolutely adore this combination and wish I read more of it, especially after reading this one.  The third in a series and I wish I had started at book one, so before you keep reading, stop and go pick up book one and start at the first book in this series.

Mrs. Frugalicious is "married" at this point all in name and still participating in a reality tv show that helps viewers save money in various times in their lives - in this "episode" at a destination wedding.  So far Mrs. Frugalicious and her family have also encountered murders each time and so goes the same in Mexico at this resort and they must extend their stay to help solve the crime.  

I loved the cheesiness of it.  It was chuckle funny and roll your eyes at the same time and I loved it.  

Start at book one and let me know what you think about!

I know it seems weird to put this as a perfect beach read in the middle of November, but I think this series would be perfect to relax with on the beach!

Rating: perfect beach read
