A Jersey housewife must solve the murder of her brother-in-law or she may lose everyone dear to her, her husband, her best friend, her daughter. A cozy mystery where the narrator is failing in her Atkins diet but keeps plugging away to find a murder.

Lucille is a fun character, her voice is the cinema voice of New Jersey or perhaps the “Bowery Boys”. She waffles back and forth in her investigation efforts and her dieting. Flo as her best friend seems to always have her back, though she does have her secrets. Bernadette is the ultimate unthinking teenager. And, Frankie why is he keeping secrets from Lucille. If you enjoy cozy mysteries you will enjoy this one, it has a solid murder mystery with lots of possibilities and just ordinary eccentric characters that you will enjoy. ( )

If you are looking for a funny quick read, then Confession Is Murder is your answer. Lucille finds her brother in law dead just outside the confessional.

Peg as provided the reader with a cast of characters that are just hilarious. Will be looking forward to more books about Lucille and her family and friends. ( )

Lucille Mazzarella, from Jersey, is an endearing fun-loving girl, who cares about her family and her friends. In this book, she finds her brother-in-law dead in the confessional at the local church, where she works and sets out to figure out what happened. Along the way, she copes with a pregnant but totally unambitious daughter, friends who surprise her with longstanding secrets they never did tell her though being BFF, a husband who, like her, is going through the strains or middle age and a stale marriage, and a long forgotten beau who chased her in school. The author has provided a heartfelt and warm picture of a great small, Jersey town, where nothing is secret or sacred, and what goes on is usually not what everyone thinks is going on. I loved the down home feel of the book. These are ordinary folks, trying to do their best to get by in life. The mystery of Joseph’s death is intriguing, as we follow Lucille through many twists and turns to the finding of the true facts. The author definitely knows how to weave a good tale. I especially enjoyed the way everyone, as is generally the case in a small town or community, knew everyone else from way back when and had formed ideas, opinions and fondness for each other over the years. I definitely felt like I had become part of the community and their lives. I have not read anything else by this author but will look for her books after reading this one. Anyone who enjoys a good book, filled with memories of what life was in the past and how it made you what you are today will enjoy this book. The mystery is genuine and intriguing. The characters endearing. The writing superb and well done. I received this from NetGalley to read and review. ( )
