An ARC honest review for Kensington Books/Lyrical Underground via NetGalley.
This is the 7th book in the Tourist Trap mysteries.
Coffee, Books, and More owner Jill Gardner has got enough on her plate at the moment. What with the festival on the beach and them using their new outside catering van, a library evening with guest author, and being left to make the monthly report at the Shop Owners Association meeting at the Town Hall, and a fellow store owner asking her to keep an eye on his store while he is away.
With a new gal in town, a former Texas beauty queen who’s planning on opening a tea and china shop across from Jill’s place, several of her relatives also turning up in her wake, a missing $3.000 cheque, a group of bikers and a murder. And Aunt Jackie has fallen and sprained her ankle.
What else could possibly go wrong?
As always these books are an enjoyable lively read, well written and plotted.
The quaint coastal town of South Cove, California, is all abuzz about the opening of a new specialty shop, Tea Hee. But as Coffee, Books, and More owner Jill Gardner is about to find out, there’s nothing cozy about murder . . .
Shop owner Kathi Corbin says she came to South Cove to get away from her estranged family. But is she telling the truth? And did a sinister someone from her past follow her to South Cove? When a woman claiming to be Kathi’s sister starts making waves and a dead body is found in a local motel, Jill must step in to clear Kathi’s name–without getting herself in hot water.
