Crime really stings in Killer WASPs
Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, is a haven for East Coast WASPs, where tennis tournaments and cocktails at the club are revered traditions. Little happens in the sleepy suburb, and that is the way the Lilly Pulitzer–clad residents prefer it. So when antiques store owner Kristin Clark and her portly basset hound stumble upon the area's newest real estate developer lying unconscious beneath the hydrangea bushes lining the driveway of one of Bryn Mawr's most distinguished estates, the entire town is abuzz with gossip and intrigue.
When the attacker strikes again just days later, Kristin and her three best friends—Holly, a glamorous chicken nugget heiress with a penchant for high fashion; Joe, a decorator who's determined to land his own HGTV show; and Bootsie, a preppy but nosy newspaper reporter—join forces to solve the crime. While their investigation takes them to cocktail parties, flea markets, and the country club, they must unravel the mystery before the assailant claims another victim.

A light hearted fast read with clever dialogue, quirky characters, and a zany plot. Not the best edited book written but don't blame the author for that. Looking forward to starting the next book in what I hope will be a multi-book series.
I truly enjoyed this book and hope that the author will continue with this series. My being from Philadelphia made it even more appealing.
Entertaining mystery with charming characters
Killer Wasps is a entertaining mystery set on the Main Line, a wealthy suburban enclave outside Philadelphia where Grace Kelly grew up in real life as well as in the movie High Society. Our heroine Kristin is an antique dealer with a charming bassett hound sidekick named Waffles. Kristin’s adventures involve a decorator, a trophy wife, a celebrity chef, and assorted members of the WASP (White Anglo-Saxon Protestant) elite. No gory police reports here. These characters are more likely to raise a glass of wine than a deadly weapon. This is a fun read for people who prefer their mysteries on the lighter side.
