Publisher's Summary

As sunny South Cove, California, gears up for their annual Fourth of July celebrations, a local murder threatens to kill the fireworks...

South Cove's local businesses are up in arms after volunteer fire chief Barry Gleason threatens to shut down anyone who doesn't comply with the fire code. But when Barry schedules a training burn in an old abandoned barn, he is the only one who doesn't come out alive.

Jill Gardner - owner of Coffee, Books, and More - smells murder in the ashes. She'll have to work quickly to nab a killer with a short fuse - or else everyone's holiday will end with a fizzle...

Nice addition to series

Lynn Cahoon has crafted a nice addition in the Tourist Trap Mystery series, with all the characters we’ve grown to love. I highly recommend this book / audiobook to cozy mystery fans.

not bad but not a favorite.<br />

As a rule I really enjoy the Tourist Trap mysteries. This novella felt like an appetizer and I was craving a full meal. not satisfying but clearly I wanted more. The reader was good and I enjoyed listening. I am eager to read the next full novel in this series.

LOVED THE "BOOK" BUT

THESE NOVELLAS ARE JUST A TEASE. I LISTEN TO THEM BUT ALWAYS FEEL CHEATED. I LOVE JILL AND THE CAST OF CHARACTERS AND I WANT A FULL BOOK OF THEM. SO, WHILE THIS WAS ENJOYABLE, I WON'T GIVE IT 5 STARS. IT IS LAZY.

Disappointed

I was looking forward to to this release. Pre-ordered and completely missed the 4.5. You can't go backwards and expect fans to be happy!

We went backwards

I miss the memo that this was book 4.5 not the newest book that is very confused when I started the story and all the things that had changed we're no longer changed

Tourist Trap is a series I look forward to read

Lynn Cahoon took us on a short trip back to South Cove, California. Jill finds herself in the middle of a murder before she realizes. Jill and her boyfriend (Greg King the Police Detective) outguess each other with each next step with the solving of a murder.
Susan Boyce's narration took us all back to South Cover and to our characters in an instance. Great Job --Thanks

Only wish it was a full novel (short novella) ---I like this series.

Love this series

This novella is a quick and easy read as a stand alone. The series reminds me of Murder She Wrote and Cabot Cove only this heroine, Jill, owes the book store in town and has a steady boyfriend in the police chief. It's funny when they both show up in the same places "investigating". Jill gets involved in solving the crime of the murdered volunteer fire chief even though she herself wanted to kill the man. Never dreamed the ending!
