David and Sabrina, two detectives, ( husband and wife) just got news of two escaped convicts. These two are murders and out for revenge on these two detectives who put them away. Good clean mystery one you want lay down till finished. I just forgot to review before I started another long book. Do recommend this one.
Sabrina and David make a special effort to ensure that Treasure Cove, California is safe. They have put numerous people in prison in pursuit of that goal.
Now that they have a family, they feel it is even more important for them to keep the town free of crime.
Upon learning that two of the most violent murderers they have previously incarcerated have escaped from prison, their first move is to send their family out of harm’s way. Once their family is out of danger, they feel they can concentrate on finding the escapees.
Where will they start? Rumor has it that the convicts are headed for Treasure Cove. Will they be looking to get revenge on Sabrina and David? Is their family far enough away to ensure their safety? What will happen to their family if either of them are harmed by one of these men?
Meredith Potts does it again with wonderfully fleshed out characters, a believable plot, with enough twists and turns to keep you reading late into the night (or into the next morning). I thoroughly enjoyed this second book in the series and look forward to enjoying more books in this wonderful series.
Murder and Chocolate Cake - Mysteries of Treasure Cove Bk 2 - Written by Meredith Potts
A daring prison escape. A killer on the loose. A quest for revenge. And a dead body. When convicted murderer Wade Becker breaks out of prison, amateur sleuth Sabrina Carlson finds herself staring down the hardest case of her life. After all, Wade isn't just any killer. He's a man that Sabrina put behind bars. So now that Wade is on the loose, Sabrina can't help but look over her shoulder. As desperation sets in, Sabrina finds herself asking one question. Will she be able to track Wade down, or will she become his next victim?
What did I like? Sabrina has become one of my favorite cozy female amateur sleuths. She has imagination and lots of ideas about food, especially cake! Now that she has a daughter she has grown into a wonderful mother and with all the problems of motherhood.
What will you like? A wonderful cozy mystery that is well written and develops with every page. Sabrina herself has sprouted wings and she is now more amazing. This storyline is more intense due to the family factor and it’s also more difficult because there just aren’t any clues that are obvious. Knowing that she is the target makes everything more intense. If you're into awesome cozy mysteries, with great locations, interesting and daring killers then this is the book for you. But then any of the books that this author has written will be one that you will enjoy. As they come out they just keep getting better and better! I received this from the author as a member of the ARC team for an honest review with no other compensation.
This is a six (6) book bundle of cozy mystery stories centered around the murder investigations conducted by Sabrina and David Carlson. Sabrina is an amateur sleuth turned police consultant and David is a Treasure Cove Detective by profession. I first met Sabrina and David in the Daley Buzz Cozy Mystery Series by the same author, Meredith Potts. Sabrina and David are now married and have a ten-year-old daughter, Jessica (named after Sabrina's deceased sister) in this series. Sabrina is still managing her family's business, a coffee shop named The Daley Buzz; but, has hired a manger to handle the daily customer service which frees her early mornings to allow her to start off her day taking care of her family first and foremost. I love that in this series that Sabrina has matured into such a caring and compassionate person. There are many characters in this series that I had met in the previous series. It felt somewhat like I was catching up with old friends in this series.
In this third book, Murder and Chocolate Cake... Wade Becker escapes from prison and Sabrina knows he is coming after her for revenge! She was responsible for him being sent to prison after she figured out that he killed her sister. She knows that she will have to find him before he makes her his next victim.
Each book in this series was well written and very entertaining. I have enjoyed reading this series by Meredith Potts and highly recommend these mysteries to any age group. They are clean and non-violent, appropriate for all ages.
Carrie Burgess does a very good job playing both male and female characters. She is engaging and fun to listen to as she narrates the story. Her narration added to my enjoyment of this series.
