At their seaside Read ‘Em and Eat bookstore café, Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield offer fresh scones, great books, and excellent detective work…
With their book club season wrapping up with The Florida Life of Thomas Edison, Sassy and Bridgy decide to take their group on a day trip to the beautiful Edison and Ford Winter Estates. Hiring driver Oscar Frieland, who’s known for his colorful stories and love of the café’s Robert Frost fruit tartlets, the bibliophiles set off for a day of sunshine and history.
After a lovely excursion, the club returns to the café for lunch and a book discussion, but the group falls silent after Oscar is found dead in his van. The sheriff’s deputies have some questions of their own for the group, and if the ladies don’t find some answers soon, the next book they read might be from a prison library.
Book 3 of the Read ‘Em and Eat mystery series
Who wouldn’t love to visit a cafe that hosts several book club meetings per day? And sells books to boot? This is such a great location, it’s a little disappointing to realize that it is only fiction.
In this story, Sassy finds her best friends and room mate the only convenient suspect for murder, and decides to snoop around on her own to clear her pal’s name. Throw in a little family drama at home and a business to run, and she has her hands full! This was a fun story, and I’ll definitely be reading the rest of the series.
This is book 3 in the series, but the first one that I had read. While you can enjoy it without reading the first two books, this is a series you might like to start at the beginning to better understand the setup of the cafe and who is who. I’ve already picked up books 1 and 2 to catch up!
Be sure to enter the Rafflecopter giveaway (ENDED) for a chance to win a print copy of the book.
