ABOUT THE BOOK
She’s Passionate about Solving the Case ... with the Town’s Life-Long Bachelor
El Littllefield runs The Butler Did It catering. It’s the perfect cover for her to solve “who-done-its” (nothing too dangerous, please!) in this small university town nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. While catering her most important event yet—a fancy retirement dinner for Dr. Max Haverhill, life-long bachelor and history dean—countless guests fall ill, a 200 year-old relic is stolen, and her best friend vanishes. All in the first hour.
As El and Max race to solve the mystery, they discover there’s more to their relationship than simply solving the case. Welcome to Eden’s Bridge—the perfect small town setting for big intrigue, romance, and humor.

I love a good mystery and especially one that pulls me into the story from the very first page. I loved that we were taken back to Paris, France during WWII in the first chapter. This pulled me into the story right off and it set the pace for what was to come.
This was my first experience in reading a novel by Diane Noble but I'm sure I will be reading more of her work in the future. She has created wonderful quirky characters that endear themselves to the reader.
I would highly recommend reading The Curious Case of the Missing Figurehead to anyone who loves a good mystery.
I would like to thank Christian Fiction Blog Alliance for my copy of The Curious Case of the Missing Figurehead. I received my copy for free in order to read it and give my honest review, which I have done.
