Hayley Powell, food and cocktails columnist for Bar Harbor's Island Times, is...well, kind of broke. So when she's selected for that extreme coupon-clipping reality game show coming to town...
...she's thrilled, especially when her competition is nasty nurse Candace Culpepper. But when Haley stumbles across a face-down-in-the-snow Candace - scissors gleaming between her shoulders - she knows the next thing she'll be selected for will probably be a police line-up.
Meanwhile, though Hayley's BFF Mona was only joking about "taking Candace out", Bruce Linney, the Island Times crime reporter, definitely isn't laughing. And what about the smarmy, cold-hearted host of the show, Drew Nickerson, who may have been having a steamy affair with the intentionally-iced nurse? Hayley needs to cut to the chase and find the killer. Everything may hinge on a stray coupon, but Hayley better keep her eyes on the real grand prize: staying out of permanent cold storage!
Includes seven delectable recipes from Hayley's kitchen!

A lover of cozy mysteries, contemporary romance and getting lost in the world of audiobooks
Cozy, Predictable, Enjoyable
Yes. I have read the other 2 books in this series, and I liked them enough to give this 3rd one a shot. It isn't a top priority to listen to the 4th book, but if I find myself needing something in a pinch then sure.
I liked how she brought the characters to life, she did a good job of differentiating the voices.
It got a little boring and annoying in some places, so no I couldn't listen to it in one setting.
Overall it is a good cozy mystery, but not one I would go out of my way to recommend
Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.
Didn't guess the murderer this time. Not sure all the clues were given but it was fun none the less. Narrator's voice still makes me sleepy.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
THE STORY WAS INTRIGUING, A BIT DRAWN OUT, BUT I ENJOYED HER PERSISTENCE AND ACUTE SKILLS OF OBSERVATION. THE MURDERER WAS NOT SOMEONE YOU WOULD SUSPECT.
