Reviewed in the United States on February 27, 2018
Man what a great author. I have read all of her other books and finally caught up except for this series. I am looking forward to Book 3 and 4. This author doesn't write fast enough for me as I can't seem to put any of the books in this new series down. Love the characters and suspense. One of my favoirite authors.

This was a page turner. Story was good and there were lots of twist and turns. Zion is helping Tate with a murder investigation with them growing closer. She is dating her former attorney who is a catch. But does she want to catch him? Plot is interesting.
5.0 out of 5 starsThe second installment in the Zion Sawyer series is as good as the first one.

This is my review of the audio version as posted on Audible:
Zion has finally found her place in Sequoia, with the coffeee house to run and friends she can talk to - that's her comfort zone. But when a new murder lands at her door, she must team up with Tate again to prove one of her friend's innocent...
Zion is all for getting herself involved in the case, Tate unwilling to go back to the police work he left behind when he moved to Sequoia - but once a cop, always a cop, and so he can't refuse when he's needed... And he gets to work with Zion, a huge advantage for him... Or not? Will his feelings for her get in the way of a professional investigation? Well, you have to read or listen to the book to find out:)
This is a very entertaining cozy mystery, with a well thought-out plot, many leads that lead nowhere (pun intended:)), many suspects who don't really have any motives for killing a girl everyone liked and a whole bunch of colourful old and new background characters. There is also a lot of humour in the book, with Zion's mother taking up yoga (oh, her smoothies:)), with a rock star working as a barista and with Zion questioning her life choices and decisions almost every step of the way...
Narration by Ms Hazen is very good; although some of the male voices may sound strange to you if this is your first in her interpretation, you quickly get used to them and stop noticing the strangeness (well, I did:)). Other than that, as always, the emotions are conveyed clearly, the characters' personalities really shine and the whole experience is a pleasure.

Zion is settling in to her new life in Sequoia. She’s come to the realization that running her little coffee shop is exactly what she wants to do. When her barista is the primary suspect in a murder at the local music festival, Zion joins forces with Tate, an ex-cop, to try and get to the bottom of things.
M.L. Hamilton has written another great cozy mystery. I loved the details and twists and turns. I enjoy it when I’m kept guessing til the end.
Kelley Hazen is quickly becoming one on my favorite narrators. Her use of different voices for so many characters is impressive. I really feel like I’ve gotten to know each of the characters.

ML Hamilton hits a home run with this cozy mystery! I am so glad I didn’t read the ending to this book 1st (something I tend to do on occasion-especially one describing every grass blade from here to Timbuktu. I have to decide if there is enough interest left to finish it).
The story is so easy it doesn’t keep you on the edge of your seat or turn one in to a nail biter but it will certainly keep you interested. You just can’t help learning to care about these characters. And, yes, I did again figure out the so called “culprit” prior to the end and even the reason for their actions. That didn’t take away from the ending though. Can’t wait to read book 3 in this delightful saga.
