Publisher's Summary

The quaint coastal town of South Cove, California, is all abuzz about the opening of a new specialty shop, Tea Hee. But as Coffee, Books, and More owner Jill Gardner is about to find out, there's nothing cozy about murder.

Shop owner Kathi Corbin says she came to South Cove to get away from her estranged family. But is she telling the truth? And did a sinister someone from her past follow her to South Cove? When a woman claiming to be Kathi's sister starts making waves and a dead body is found in a local motel, Jill must step in to clear Kathi's name - without getting herself in hot water.

This was pretty good. Better than I expected after some of the reviews.

Not as much as I would have liked about the house. But people were definitely nicer including Greg. More sense of community.

Great storyline this go- round!

I've really gotten hooked on this series! Jill never listens to her boyfriend tell her to stay out of investigations, but secretly I think he likes that she sneaks around to get involved. Lol. This one wasn't as suspenseful as some of the others, but still a great read!

Not as good as previous installments

Lynn Cahoon has written another installment in the series that is not as good as previous ones, but is still enjoyable. All our favorite characters are back and still going strong. I’m hoping the next in series will return to the level of earlier installments.

Worth listening

Any additional comments?

Not my favorite in the series but worth listening to. I wasn't a fan of how they portrayed the Aunt in this book. It made me not want to like her. In previous books I adored her. I thought it was a strange turn.

Fun read!

I just love this Tourist Trap series by Lynn Cahoon. They are all pretty much standard in the formula. One kind of mimics the next, but I love Jill and her entourage, and have enjoyed all her volumes. This is obviously not great literature and isn't rated as such. But it is fun and mysterious, and I loved the characters. Looking forward to her next. They flow and are easy to follow. Just good mindless stories that have a good pace and storyline. You can't go wrong with any of these stories, but they are much better if read in order. Thanks Lynn.

If You Like Quaint Little Towns

Stories that take place in the little "walking towns" draw me. I could imagine the shops and feel like I got to know the characters. One interesting thing is the cheesecake. Every other page, someone is indulging and yet, no one seems to be chubby or rotund. I enjoyed the story although it was a light mystery. I did not choose it as a whodunit, but to listen to tales of life in a small town. In the beginning of the book, I thought, "pleasant read", but I would not buy another one of these books. I was drawn in and would definitely read another one.

The narrator was excellent most of the time; in fact, the only times that I felt distracted by the reading was when the timing of speech was off. It made me wonder if the fault was hers at all.

Nice book.

Good story but with a few production issues

If you are a lover of this series you will not be disappointed. One of my favorites narrators! There are few repeated phrases; not certain if these are in the print edition or only this one.
