Publisher's Summary

After her music career crashes and burns, Juliet Langley is forced to turn to the only other business she knows: food service. Unfortunately, bad luck strikes yet again when her fiancé robs her blind and runs off with her best waitress. Flushing what's left of her beloved cafe down the toilet with her failed engagement, Juliet moves back to her college stomping grounds in Nashville to manage an old friend's coffeehouse.

At first glance it seems as though nothing's changed at Java Jive. What could possibly go wrong? Only that the place is hemorrhaging money, the staff is in open revolt, and Juliet finds one unlucky employee dead in the dumpster out back before her first day is even over. The corpse just so happens to belong to the cook who'd locked horns with Juliet over the finer points of the health code. Unimpressed with her management style, the other disgruntled employees are only too eager to spill the beans about her fiery temper to the detective on the case. Add to the mix a hunky stranger who's asking way too many questions, and suddenly Juliet finds herself in some very hot water. If she can't simmer down and sleuth her way to the real killer, she's going to get burned.

    "Disappointed"

    Very slow & dull. There was nothing to it to keep me focused on the story. Can't say for sure if it's the story or the narrator.

    Story
    "Predictable and a bit one dimension."

    Ok for a light easy read. The plot was predictable to everyone except the protagonist. The characters were entirely good or entirely bad, no nuances, so fell flat. I don't plan on spending more money on the series.

    "Boring"

    Found this book very boring. Struggled to stay focused on it or feel any connection to the characters.

    Story
    "Not Sure About This One"

    This is actually a good story. However, the lead character and her alter ego "Red Headed She-Devil" is incredibly annoying. She's immature, thoughtless and makes horrible decisions. I'm also not a fan of introducing two potential love interest to move the plot forward. I'm not sure if I will get the next one.
