ARC honest review for Kensington Books via Netgalley.
This is the first ‘Tourist Trap’ mystery that I have read, which is #5 in the series. I do have the first 2 in the series, but like everything they are sat unread on the TBRP…time to dust them off and get at them!
I liked the fact that these books can be read in any order, and you are not sent off kilter with a lot of back story information, making you scrambling for the earlier books to find out what’s the hell’s going on.
Lynn has created a nice set of characters in the setting of South Cove, California. Well written and plotted.
An enjoyable read.
A great addition to the ‘Cozy’ mysteries.
Jill Gardner—owner of Coffee, Books, and More—has somehow been talked into sponsoring a 5k race along the beautiful California coast. The race is a fundraiser for the local preservation society—but not everyone is feeling so charitable…
The day of the race, everyone hits the ground running…until a local business owner stumbles over a very stationary body. The deceased is the vicious wife of the husband-and-wife team hired to promote the event—and the husband turns to Jill for help in clearing his name. But did he do it? Jill will have to be very careful, because this killer is ready to put her out of the running…forever!
