Set in the fictional idyllic town of South Cove, California, Jill Gardner, the owner of “Coffee, Books And More” has finally found financial success and love in local cop/sleuth/partner Detective Greg King. South Cove is the perfect tourist town where businesses have to adhere to local ordinances to turn the sleepy town into the perfect place that tourists want to keep coming back to. The new trend is to have interns for all the businesses but when one of the organizers (Ted Hendricks) is found dead by Jill, the town people must scramble to solve the murder. To add insult to injury, Cherry, Greg’s former wife shows up in town to rile up and distract Jill away from her amateur investigation just before the town’s big Christmas extravaganza.
Solid lead characters and fun side-kicks (Aunt Jackie, Deputy officer/barista Toby) make this book into a fun addition to the cozy genre.
