Publisher's Summary

Jill Gardner, proprietor of Coffee, Books, and More, has discovered that the old stone wall on her property might be a centuries-old mission worthy of being declared a landmark. But Craig Morgan, the obnoxious owner of South Cove's most popular tourist spot, The Castle, makes it his business to contest her claim. When Morgan is found murdered at The Castle shortly after a heated argument with Jill, even her detective boyfriend has to ask her for an alibi. Jill decides that she must find the real murderer to clear her name. But when the killer comes for her, she'll need to jump from historic preservation to self-preservation.…

Light and Fun

Any additional comments?

This series is just delightful. No, it's not fine literature, but if you're driving or doing chores, it's highly entertaining. The characters are nuanced enough and the stories are interesting. Just finished #3 and am bereft of joy that there's no #4...yet?

I love this series!

Just the right combination of suspense and romance! I can't to listen to the next one.
The narrator does an excellent job.

Another Fun Tourist Trap Mystery

Any additional comments?

I appear to really be getting into "cozy mysteries". I'm having fun, and this is no different. It's the second book of the series (of which I've listened to the first and third), and it seems to keep me on my toes. There are enjoyable twists and surprises. Fun, relaxing, read (or listen, as the case may be :-) )

Another good book

Overall, this book is okay. The main character, Jill, isn't very bright and there are many times when I had to shake my head at her thoughtlessness. There is a very good supporting cast of characters and the mystery plot is actually very good. I would recommend this to anyone who likes light mysteries and a little romance.

Light and fun murder thriller

There are quite a few choices in the light and fun mystery/thriller category. Few are better than Lynn Cahoon's tourist trap mysteries. I award this book 5 stars realizing that it is not great literature. Susan Boyce does a really nice job of narrating. Recommended as a nice break from heavier/more serious mysteries.

Mission to fail.

Too much chatter and not enough mystery story. Need more substance of story to keep interest up.

Great Second Installment of this cozy mystery

I enjoyed the second installment as well. Jill gets herself in trouble again when her temper gets the better of her and she gets into a public confrontation with the manager of another South Cove tourist attraction. Can her hunky police boyfriend bail her out of this one? - Love the quirky and sometimes slightly exaggerated characters of this series and the cozy small town feel. I will keep reading more ...

Love the book and series so far but...

I have a terrible time coping with the slowness and dialog of the narrator. I have enjoyed the series so far, but I have to speed up book in order to deal with her voice....👎
